Atomnation Podcast #007 Olde Gods

podcast7 Olde Gods

The Atomnation Podcast series is a monthly curated mix by friends and like minded artists of the label. Follow us on SoundCloud and Mixcloud for updates.

For our 7th podcast we’ve invited our Barcelonean friends Olde Gods. They contributed two amazing tracks to the Atomnation discography and are working on an EP for the label. In the meantime they loosely crafted a mix for our podcast series. Time for a little chat:

Hi Pau and Jami, between EP’s on your own Minor Planets label and tracks for two Atomnation compilations, you guys are quite busy with all sorts of projects. Can you tell us what’s keeping you from the streets these days?
As a duo we just released Tapes (Tapas), you know appetizers that come together with some cervezas. It’s an underground edits tape with five tracks. We decided to wrap it up in a beautiful package just if you would buy a gourmet sardine can. Artwork was taken care by La Mandanga, one of the top satirical instagram outposts in Spain. We’ve been getting quite a bunch of Cha-Ching’s and Bada-boo’s at our bandcamp and feeling quite happy about the sales. We recommend both things, going to our bandcamp and having a laugh or two at the La Mandanga IG account.

As a duo you are called ‘Olde Gods’. Where did the name come from?
We’re both quite old… have kids already and have been around for a quite a while now, ha ha.. We thought these name would never feel old or worn out, it’s eternal…Well all in all it was a joke,  like super pretentious stuff but also quite ridiculous too. Besides that, and musically speaking we are really into oldies house stuff and the sound you get in those productions.

In the coldness of The Netherlands we get a really Balearic and sunny vibe of your music. how much is the southern climate influencing you?
We really couldn’t tell. As Catalans we have this other specific feeling of being in the “north of the south” (northern Spain), and there’s this cliche in Spain where Catalans are the cold-tempered European northern dudes. And, in fact we do stay at home a lot…too hot to go out…So you see our dilemma here, but yeah we appreciate the balearic sunny vibe thing, could eventually be a fact. ; ))

As noticed, we really enjoy your music, both solo and as a duo. Can we expect more music in the near future?
We are working on a new EP which is 75% completed, you might know something about it…as soon as the tracklist is completed we will hopefully sort out the release plan. As to our solo projects, JMII is always on the move with a remix for DC Salas last record and another solo EP on the making, and Braqueberry just happily released a footwork EP that got some attention even on Pitchfork! We’ll keep grinding!
