Interview: Legroni

The Georgian club circuit continues to go from strength to strength as time goes on, and one of its most promising emerging prospects returns this month for the release of their debut album – as Legroni drops his new 7-track Mosaic LP.

The album comes via the Tbilisi-based producers very own Zoom Zoom Records, a label which is responsible for the majority of his productions in recent times.

We got the chance to have a brief chat with him, where we discussed the forthcoming long player, what he’s been up to so far this summer, and who he rates most from the Georgian club scene. Read the full interview with Legroni below.

How’s things in the life of Legroni right now?

Hi! Thanks for inviting me to chat. Everything at the moment seems to involve music and flights so it’s been a busy but fun summer!

Have you been getting up to anything special over the summer months?

I’ve been writing my new album ‘Mosaic’, which is set to come out at the end of August, and I’ve managed to visit Mykonos and was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and vibes over there, a great place for relaxing but also for parties.

You’re about to release your debut album ‘Mosaic’ as you said, how would you describe the project as a whole?

This is a unique album in many components. For me personally, a lot of discoveries in terms of creating sounds and in general in the melodic parts, each track requires attention and gives ground for reflection and flight.

And which track should we listen to first when it comes out?

If I had to choose one from the LP I would say ‘Paradise’. It’s a very rich track and one that when I play out always has a great reaction from the crowd so I think that would be the one I’d most recommend you to listen to first.

It’s to be released on your label Zoom Zoom Records – what is your long term vision for Zoom Zoom?

I put a lot of focus on my label at the moment, and in the coming months you shall see a lot more of my music and also some special talents that I’ve invited to release. I’m excited about it.

Who are some emerging Georgian artists that you think will be doing big things in a few years time?

It’s hard to say, but there are a lot of real talented musicians in Tbilisi for sure. If I had to highlight one artist to look out for though I would say Ucha – a really talented young artist with lots of cool music.

Is there anything else you would like to mention before we finish up?

Just that I was glad to talk to you and please listen to the new album guys, it’s worth paying attention to and I really hope you all enjoy my music.

Legroni – Mosaic LP is out August 31st on Zoom Zoom Records.
