Is Smoke Silver? Talal's Debut EP on Maldesoule Has An Answer

What is the inspiration behind this EP? How did you come up with the name?

I was playing at a club named Silver & Smoke in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina), so I wrote this while in town and thought to name it after the place.

How did you overcome challenges to this EP?

Well the genre was a bit different so it becomes tricky for labels to try different sounds as their promo/catalog generally has fixed parameters, however if i recall correctly I think this was reviewed/tested by Maceo Plex’s Ellum and Oliver Koletzki’s Stil Vor Talent. So I knew the quality was decent just needed some time for a label willing to be creative.

How did you decide on artists who would remix/Collab? And what do you think of the end resultI?

I am very happy with the work from the label and their selection of remix artists, it was all on the label side.

How did you decide on the label who releases your music?

I don't have a specific answer but generally Maceo Plex’s Ellum tests a good number of items, Joris Voorn’s Spectrum and Adriatique's Siamese and Solee’s Future Romance also test some items. Interestingly lately however Oliver Koletzki’s Stil Vor Talent and Booka Shades Blaufield seemed to take interest in a certain direction I’ve been writing more towards - so I am hoping to take that sound further.

How did you find match in this label where your EP is releasing?

Alex at Mango Alley has been very courteous and reviews my submissions often and gives feedback, my catalog covers several sub genres so Alex in the feedback also gives some suggestion of which segment of genres would be more feasible, so then he brought this in for Sachin at Maldesoule.

An instrument or device that has been monumental in this EP?

Nothing particular been using a lot of sylenth and access virus lately (though am hoping to try more items).

How soon can we expect your next release and what is that going to be about?

For now there is an item with Booka Shades Blaufield label June 7, John 00 Flemings JOOF July 29, Nomade/Paperclip Aug 16, an EP with the French Family Piknik festival label Sept, a track on Mango Alley’s ADE compilation for October + a few more items in process currently.

BRC thanks Maldesoule for this opportunity to premiere one of their releases. Also thank you to everyone who supported Talal's track 'Silver Screen' in any manner they could.
