A brief insight into the world of Vladrumetz
Vladrumetz started out in the year 2014 as an experimental solo artist, singer/songwriter and passionate keyboard player. He comes from the Southern part of Germany where he's got a tiny home recording studio. On his latest album "Dead End Street" he has further elaborated his own musical character, applying quite specific methods of sound creation dominated by his Roland BK9 synthesizer. For those of you, who've never had the chance to hear anything from this artist, his music can best be described as a chilled out approach of dealing with alternative electronic music mixing it up with some exciting minimal house beats and progressive vibes.
Being mostly influenced by electronically produced tunes from the 80s, Vladrumetz transfers the mood of those times into nowadays world. In the meantime he also makes use of a whole bunch of different analog and digital gear. According to independent music reviewing experts his album "Dead End Street" marks the musical highlight of his whole work.
In summer 2017 Vladrumetz produced his second EP called "I`m with you". The single has been played on a few radio stations in Europe.
I`m with you (2017)I`M WITH YOU is the second EP and it comes with four brand-new songs.

Short interview on DEAD END STREET
WM: What can you tell us about your latest album "Dead End Street"?
VD: Well, I would say that it is quite a typical Vladrumetz longplayer. This time I`ve put in some stylistic elements taken from the genre of "house" music. You know, I always keep looking for some interesting new sounds and I like it a lot playing around with digital synthesizers.
WM: But you started off with a heavier alternative pop, almost rock album and now you drifted away into the genre of house music?
VD: I wouldn`t agree when you say that I`ve made a classical house record. It`s still very pop music-like and it bears my own handwriting. At the moment I'm pretty interested in deep and minimal house and in all kinds of so called "Electronica" [electronic crossover] music, maybe a bit more than in pop or rock music. You know, I`ve just got the feeling that there's not that much progress going on in rock music these days, at least I can't see any bigger innovations there. However, in the electronic music it's really phenomenal, how many brilliant artists have evolved and bloomed in the corresponding subgenres during the past five years. In many cases their music is really amazing, although they do not get that famous as the rock stars of the old days, who've been selling concert tickets sufficient for filling whole stadiums.
WM: But how do those kind of artists get your attention then?
VD: Good question. The thing is that I love browsing through various music channels on Youtube. And Spotify, by the way, is a huge treasure for detecting tons of interesting new material.
WM: What would you say, is the most special thing on the new Vladrumetz album?
VD: Okay, first of all, I've slightly changed my way of writing songs, because at least for my ears it's much more important holding up a certain mood or atmosphere than sticking to the golden rules of structuring a pop song. You know, in pop music you mostly have your two verses at the beginning, followed by an interlude and then usually comes the chorus and afterwards you've got a repetition somehow and that`s it. This time, I often have neglected those golden rules in favour of preserving an atmosphere. This is also typical for modern electronic music genres like deep house, by the way.
And secondly, what's special, is my new approach of mixing and mastering new material. I have learned a lot of additional techniques for enhancing the overall quality of a record. You know, I'm not working in a professional sound studio. But I hope that you will hear those little enhancements on the album as well.
WM: I have to finally ask you this question: What's your most favourite track on the new album?
VD: I'm really proud of having made the two STAY THE NIGHT parts and of LA VIDA. The best mixed track on the album is FOLLOW ME, I guess. I did this remix of STAY THE NIGHT on my own after having watched a certain sound mixing tutorial on Youtube. Hey, I wanna say a huge THANK YOU to Dave Pensado!
