Cazals Myspace

Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) – Eurythmics – Sweet Dreams
“I always aspire to create something which captures an atmosphere which is definitely outside of the recording studio. This is one of my favourite tracks ever and I have never been able to imagine it being written or recorded… it has a some kind of divine quality as though it just it dropped from the sky one day.”

Rydeen – Yellow Magic Orchestra – Solid State Survivor
“For me, this is the epitome of everything that is great about electronic music. I was literally speechless the first time I heard this and can only imagine what it must have sounded like to audiences in 1978! The footage of them performing this song on Japanese tv is still THE coolest thing I have ever seen… ever.”

Self-Control – Laura Branigan – Self Control
“This won against Heart Of Glass (Blondie) in my head just now but I think I love both because they’re great songs, well produced and both have amazing drummers playing along to simple drum machines. This one wins on atmosphere because it has it’s own dark, little world with creatures and so on. It has JR Robinson who also played the flawless beats on all the best Michael Jackson songs. I think he and Clem Burke must have been early prototypes for some kind of “perfect drummer” robot. Imagine both of them dressed as robots, with chrome drum kits, on stage with Daft Punk…”

Money For Nothing – Dire Straits – Brothers In Arms
“My dad had this on vinyl and I can remember dancing around with my sister to this when I was a little boy and it still excites me when I hear it today. Once again, I just cannot imagine that guitar intro was ever played by a human! It makes me think of a Transformer transforming and turning into an amazing silver guitar that Megatron can rock out on.”

Krystof Penderecki – Therenody For The Victims Of Hiroshima
“If you don’t know this one just think of the beginning of 2001: A Space Odyssey. That cloud of sharp strings in suspended animation I-think-I’m-going-to-be-sick-or-pass-out-if-this-carries-on sort of sound. Dark. Not of this world. Who’d have thought the future would come from Poland?”

Gustav Holst – The Planets
“From that brooding, ominous intro of Mars right through to the disembodied choir finale of Neptune, this is simply one of the greatest pieces of music ever written. And made by an Englishman. God save the Queen.”

Igor Stravinsky – The Rite Of Spring
“This is a tour de force of emotion, atmosphere and violence. It caused a riot at it’s world premier and had women passing out in the aisles.
And like Francis Bacon, this seems to feed my preoccupation with death. Like a great poem, it paints pictures in the most graphic, sometimes disturbing ways. Everyone else can only aspire to this sort of greatness.”

12:51 – The Strokes – Room On Fire
“The Strokes represent the opposite of much of what I’ve said up until now. I can actually imagine Julian singing this (and every other song of his) and this is his talent. Everything is delivered with such a naive, honest, human quality that it feels almost like you’re a fly on the wall of his innermost sanctum. Like studying someone’s face while they’re sleeping. Oh, and I chose this particular song because I’m still absolutely floored every time I hear that “is it, isn’t it?” synthetic guitar sound. Sick.”

Veridis Quo – Daft Punk – Discovery
“This song feels like it “moves” and I can’t explain exactly what it is I mean but I feel like I’m actually in motion when I hear it. It’s like going on a journey, travelling into this songs little galaxy. Headphones on, eyes shut, on a journey through space and time avec Thomas and Guy-Man.” (Does pyramid sign with hands).

Madonna – Lucky Star – Madonna
“There’s something magical about that arpeggio intro. It just excites me and makes me want to be a teenager in Middle-America, circa 1984, hanging out at 31 Flavours, in my hot-red sports car with a pastel sweater over my shoulders and a keg on the back seat. Sort of the aural equivalent of actually living in a John Hughes movie. This was a close call with Cyndi Lauper – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (another dancing with my sister favourite).”

I love these songs and I think they influence everything I do.

Asian Dan Interview: Cazals

Somebody, Somewhere out May 5
Cazals Myspace
Cazals’ “What Of Our Future” is out on the 26th of May.

I was able to speak with Daniel, guitarist of the Cazals to find out what their past few months have been like, opening for Daft Punk and recording their first full length album.

1. How does it feel to be done with your first album? Any exciting rock and roll studio stories?
Sometimes I worry I sound a bit arrogant when I say it but our album is really fucking great. It was a long process to get to making it but I couldn’t be any happier with the results, it made the many rough times worthwhile. I had to edit a little mini mix of the album the other day with Martin (bass player and producer), like a 5 minute ‘best of’ sort of thing and we spent ages deliberating over what went in the mix, which I think is a good sign.

As for stories from the studio, we managed to convince The Plasticines (a French, all girl group) to come down to the studio and let us record them screaming for 5 minutes. Also a big regret is that when we were mixing the album, some of Phoenix turned up to say hello and hear what we were doing but we had gone out to lunch!

2. Who are some of your influences, music or otherwise? Jon Brion once said “He can’t escape the Beatles”, what musicians can you not escape and always look towards to for inspiration?

All the different members of Cazals have varied tastes and therefore influences so I can’t really speak for the band. Personally, I just play a lot of guitar and that’s how I come up with songs, ideas just come to you when you play. There are loads of people I love listening to and some like the Strokes, Daft Punk, John Frusciante, Radiohead conciously influence ideas and sounds I go for and I’ll learn how to play their material. Then there are other artists like Beck and Hot Chip where its not such a conscious thing but because I listen to them so often their influence seeps into ideas.

3. What are some albums/aritsts/songs you are listening to these days?

Some pretty obvious ones like Radiohead – In Rainbows, Chromeo – Fancy Footwork, Hot Chip – Made In The Dark and Justice. Also I’ve been listening to a fair bit of Weezer and late 70’s David Bowie recently.

4. How was it opening for Daft Punk in Japan? How does it feel to be part of this new electronic music scene even though you are not really “electronic”? What do you guys think about this cross genre collaborations? I think it is great that there is the spirit of rock is coming out in all genres lately.

After making our album I think supporting Daft Punk was the coolest thing I’ve ever been part of. They made us feel very welcome and to be part of what was the coolest show on earth for a few days was amazing.

We’ve always hated the idea of scenes, people say we were in the East London scene or in the electro scene or the new-wave guitar band scene, its all bollocks really. We are a band that play guitars and synths and we’re influenced by all types of music. I think two things Martin, who produced the album, listened to most when we were out in Paris were Slipknots ‘Get This’ and Krzysztof Penderecki’s ‘Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima’, not very East London electro scene, we just dont purposely try to be a certain genre.

I really like the (heavy) rock sound thats coming through in dance music, I was lucky enough to be hanging out with SebastiAn when he was playing in London and he absolutely ruined my ears for about 3 days but it was worth it, I went a bit too mental when he dropped ‘Killing In The Name Of’ but luckily so did everyone else.

5. Why are your lives boring?

They’re not at all…we’ve supported Daft Punk!

Here is a description from NT89 himself explaining his production process:

Kitsune & Daniel from Cazals sent me the stems about 2 weeks ago, after that, i started this important remix, trying to make something of original, different and alternative. I used the vocals and guitar impulses mounted on a sampler, totally recomposed and added over a distorted synth, it took me about a week just for the impulse extraction and for the whole set-up of that synth sound. The Drum & Bass section is pretty special too, it rounds 360° in the small feedback (Took the idea from the Boys Noize Remix of Snoop Dogg), it sounds amazing on a huge soundsystem.
