Synthwave music trio Turboslash was established at the end of 2013. In 2014 they released their first track ‘Deathracer’. In May 2015 they had started their new EP which was released in 2017 since they decided to change the sound to a harder one.
Their debut full-length album, with vocalist Polina Mikhailina who has joined them for this, was released on January 24, 2020.
Looking back, what were some of your earliest entries into music appreciation? And music production?
We started our musical way more than ten years ago. Our first project is Catch The Sun (progressive metalcore). Metal music has greatly influenced our long-term creativity.
What inspired you to start making the electronic music that you are now?
We were very impressed with the music of Carpenter Brut, which we came across at the end of 2013. Aggressive and powerful sound inspired us to experiment with electronic music.
What key pieces of gear/software are you using to define your sound?
We use VST emulators of vintage analogue synthesizers and gear. Only digital.
Has your arsenal of equipment changed much since you first started?
We often find new interesting VST plugins. There are a huge number of them.
Which three albums or artists would you say have influenced your sound in a big way?
Carpenter Brut – EP I
Carpenter Brut – EP II
Carpenter Brut – EP III
Perturbator and Mega Drive also had some influence on us.
Any new or upcoming artists on your radar?
We would like to highlight some of the performers that we have recently known about: Mooggy, Oscilian, Moter, The Hunt, Korine.
What inspires you outside of music?
We prefer to spend our free time with games, films and other media stuff.
What do you want to accomplish with your music?
We just can’t stop making music. And we are happy when people appreciate the results of our work.
What, in your opinion would be the perfect genre fusion?
Progressive Retrocore will be great 🙂
What can we expect from you in the near future? Any upcoming projects or releases in the pipeline that you would like to tell us about?
We’re making new stuff right now. But we’re working slowly so can’t give you a date.
