Three incredible releases this year; we’ve loved everything you have put out this year. How has 2023 been for you so far?
Gamuel Sori: 2023 has been a year of both reflection and anticipation, a year where I’ve embraced change and growth as an artist. I’m grateful for the support and appreciation from my audience, and I can’t wait to share more of my musical journey as we move forward into the latter half of this transformative year.
‘Early In The Morning’ lives up to its name of transporting us to a beach as soon we finish listening to the tune. Talk us through your experience of writing the tune?
Gamuel Sori: I was in a session in Croatia with Alma Goodman and Jonasu, and we came up with this idea of creating a sample, something like an old soul song, and then we flipped it into an house soulful banger, aiming for a party-starter song.
How did the Gamuel Sori journey begin?
Gamuel Sori: It all began with “Money’s Gone”, which marked the debut of this project. I was transitioning from a previous, more underground endeavour called Back2Black, and I had this strong urge to explore a different genre. In a way, it felt like returning to my musical origins because I initially started my journey in the world of deep house production.
How do you think your style of productions has evolved ever since you started making music?
Gamuel Sori: I have a constant desire for learning, and with the vast amount of free online content available today, acquiring new knowledge has become much more accessible. In the past, it was a bit challenging, but now, it’s so much easier. I can definitely sense the progress in my skills, and as I mentioned earlier, my insatiable curiosity keeps me eagerly seeking out the latest tips and insights.
We’d like to take you back to your collaboration with INNA. How was it like working with INNA on ‘Party Songs’?
Gamuel Sori: Occasionally, I need to remind myself of this incredible moment that occurred. It’s truly a monumental event! I’ve been a fan of INNA since my teenage years, and having the opportunity to meet her feels like a dream come true. She’s not only immensely talented but also incredibly kind, a true queen and popstar. My admiration and respect for her are immense.
What has been your favourite festival moment of 2023?
Gamuel Sori: I’ve been at Untold in Romania, and I was speechless, such a great event and organisation. I have to say that my favorite moment was Imagine Dragons’ live performance, such a huge act!
What are the other styles and genres you like exploring other than your formative one?
Gamuel Sori: I’m a devoted enthusiast of Hip Hop, Trap, as well as Soul music. I find myself immersing in these genres frequently, selecting the one that suits my mood and activity. Furthermore, I engage in producing various musical genres because my love for music knows no boundaries; I appreciate it from all angles.
How is the rest of the year looking like for Gamuel Sori?
Gamuel Sori: You can expect more music to drop before the year wraps up, but for now, all I can say is: STAY TUNED for updates!
