Interview: Blinking Planetary

Recently
we had a great pleasure to interview solo act electronic dance music producer Blinking
Planetary. Here is our interview with the upcoming act.

Hello! How are you at this moment of time? 

I’m doing great. Just working on new material.


When did you start making making music and why?

My parents got me started playing the clarinet
in 3rd grade because I fell in love with The Phantom of the Opera after my 3rd
grade teacher gave me the soundtrack. It wasn’t long after that that I started
“making” my own music on clarinet.


Describe your sound in 3 words?

I like to think that my sound blends high
energy drops with pretty melodies and a kind of Melbourne Bounce-like feel, but
I don’t specifically write my songs with those 3 ideas as a paradigm every time.


Do you have a favourite meme?

I wouldn’t say I have a favorite meme, but the
girl in front of a burning house is pretty fantastic.


Would you rather make it big through years of work
or through winning a single competition?

I think I would rather have years of hard work
under my belt, because I think it’s a better way of preparing yourself for
making it big, and also allows you to appreciate the end result when the road
is longer.

If you could pick any song from any artist or band
that you could claim as your own which track and why?

Pretty much anything Ben Gold releases ever.
His melodies and song structures are unbelievable, and he can make amazing
bangers like “Vortex”.


What are you planning to do in the next year or so
with your music?

In the next year, I’d like to get a track
signed to a larger label and put more focus on performing.


If you could collaborate with any artist who would
it be and why?

I’d say either Ben Gold or TJR. They are my
favorites right now and I could learn so much from them in terms of producing
and songwriting.
