Italy has become one of the places to look if you want to identify rising talents, especially in the more main stream genres (no diss to the underground rising stars!). One of those that have made their mark on the Italian scene, and beginning to on the bigger stage, is Reebs, the duo who have recently released an EP on Nameless Records, and worked closely with the Nameless Festival in Italy. So what do I have to say? Keep an eye out for these guys with their diverse range of music and no genre boundaries.

Looking back at the influences which got you involved within dance music, would you say there was a key individual or individuals?

We had a lot of influences, maybe not specifically one or two individuals, but certainly there were different styles of electronic dance music that we loved which got us involved into dance music; from house and dance music in early 2000s, to electro and dubstep some years later.

Was it always the ambition for Reebs to get involved within dance music; that the passion was there for the music?

Absolutely yes! We couldn’t have done anything if we didn’t start making and playing music because it was our passion!

On the topic of music, you recently released the brand new ‘Never Go Home’ EP on Nameless Records. How did the two tracks come about and what was it like working alongside SLVR?

Well, we worked on Never Go Home from March to June; we finished the arrangement and sound design in a few weeks. While we were waiting for the vocal we started producing Thaanam with our friend SLVR. We finished the vocal in May, so it only took a few days for mixing and mastering both the tracks off the EP.

The difference between the two tracks on the EP though is quite substantial. Is this the way Reebs is likely to stay, diverse and involved within a number of sounds?

Yes, we always love experimenting different styles of music. For this EP we made a pop track and a trap one. We know the difference is quite substantial as you say, but for us, these tracks are linked by our personal taste in sounds and arrangements.

As already stated, the EP has arrived on Nameless Records. What was it like to work with the label and what’s it like to see support coming in from a lot of other artists?

We’re really proud to be part of Nameless Records family; we think it’s the best Italian label for electronic music nowadays, without a doubt! We’ve also been very lucky to be supported by a lot of artists and all the best radio stations in Italy, so we’re really grateful for that!

Hailing from Italy, the Italian dance music scene has been one which has provided a lot of big characters. For you, what is the stand out part of the Italian dance music scene?

The Italian dance music scene has always been great. Now there are lot of artists that have really changed electronic music of this period, like Merk & Kremont, Marnik, Lush & Simon, Delayers and others, all of them great producers and good friends too!

Are there any of the artists on the scene which you would particularly like to work with, specifically from Italy?

Yeah, of course! There are so many people we would love to work with. We’re actually already planning collaborations with some other Italian producers, but we can’t say who at the moment: it’s a surprise!

On a note about the future, what can fans or followers of Reebs expect to see from you in the next few months, especially with a photo of you and Tigerlily appearing on your socials?

We’re working on a lot of tracks and remixes, especially trap music with progressive lead sounds as we have experimented in that in the last months, and some bass house and electro house tracks too. A few people have asked us if we’re working with Tigerlily now! We took a photo together and we put it on our Facebook page: she was in our city and we had lunch together and then spent the afternoon listening to music our friend PRZI’s studio. So no, unfortunately the photo doesn’t mean there will be a collab between Reebs and Tigerlily, we’ve only spent a day together – but that was great!
