Interview With Project Mayuge Band Members

Love Music recently interviewed the famous & talented Project Mayuge Band Members..we talk about their new albums, previous album and upcoming albums...

Check out the interview :

Love Music : Tell us a little bit about Project Mayuge. And how many band members Project Mayuge consists ??

Project Mayuge has been and still is a collaboration of multiple skills. I myself (Niels) have been playing Piano since I was 5 while Sjors has been experimenting with digital music for almost an equal amount of time. As mentioned later in the interview eventually we decided to combine these skills and over the past 8 years we’ve also taken on extra help from other friends. Currently however, we are back at just Sjors and I managing everything.

Love Music : We 've been hearing a lot about Project Mayuge, so we notice your starting to gain a lot of attention how does it feel?

At first we just made music because we enjoyed it and didn’t think anything more of it. But nowadays with requests and attention it also fills our thoughts with happy moments knowing that we also make others happy.

Love Music : At what point did you decided to made this band ?

Project Mayuge started in 2008 when Sjors and I were in school and we had to do a school assignment to make music. We liked it so much that we started making remixes and songs together and then chose the name Project Mayuge.

Love Music : Please tell our readers about your new Album, where do you feel your music is headed?

Our newest album will be called Saikousei and for the first time in the history of Project Mayuge it will only contain remixes. That said there will be no change in our style which is pretty much combining as many styles as possible from calm orchestral pieces at the start of the album to hard dance tracks at the end of the album and anything in between like rock, disco and house.

Love Music : And please also tell the feed back you got about your previous album?

In general we get positive responses to our albums since we try and mix up the content. It’s not just all dance or all orchestral. Our albums speak to almost everyone out there.

Love Music : What motivates you to do your best work as band members ?

Putting smiles on our faces and the faces of our fans. Nothing makes us happier than making a fan happy. There’s no need for sky-high prices or pretentiousness. If we can keep doing our thing and make fans happy, that’s enough for us in regards to motivation.

Love Music :  If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

Sadly we are going to stick with not playing live anywhere BUT that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t like getting places. Being invited by the (late) BittyBay staff to make their Original Sound Track was a lot of fun and made us meet people from all over the world to work with.

Love Music : What are your future plans for your new albums ? Your vision for the coming years.

After Saikousei which will release around New Year’s Day of 2017 we will continue doing what we do best, which is work and having fun. That’s the best way to get inspiration and then we’ll start making songs and we try to release one album a year but to be honest, we’re getting older and responsibilities are coming at us full force so I would think that an album every two years is more likely from now on because we want to keep our standards and not give fans junk.

Love Music : Everybody needs time out. What do you do in your free time?

In Sjors his free time he likes to work on making digital art. That’s also his forte and he likes honing his skills even further. For me the same thing goes. In my free time I like playing the piano as it calms me down. Besides that I enjoy working in Microsoft Excel, which is work related as well but Excel is excellent to zone out in and practice things while the musical juices start flowing.

Love Music : How can people find you and follow you online?

People can follow us on Twitter (@ProjectMayuge) on FaceBook (ProjectMayuge) when the album releases, it’s unused for the time being. And people can find us on our song platforms SoundCloud and BandCamp.
