Enchanted Kids is an Indian music duo started in 2016 consisting of Savan Ukande & Jayesh Varade. Deep and progressive house is a huge part of their music. Dreamy and Melancholic melodies are the highlights of their sounds.
What got you into this genre?
I've really loved melodic music since my childhood. And Particularly when I was working at lounges in the initial stage of music journey I was only allowed to play Deep house, chill, downtempo kinda stuff and at that time I started researching more about the genre and I started loving that sound and those textures.
What music are you producing or DJ'ing? What is the inspiration behind the name?
We’re mainly into deep and progressive house. To be honest I don’t remember how did I come up with the Artist name. It was me for sure who thought of it but I don’t remember much of it.
What’s the story behind “Story of Consciousness”?
If you listen to the track consciously you’ll understand in every part there are one or two missing elements except the ending where all the elements come together to form that perfectly solved puzzle. We were working on that track for a month or so. We made a few versions of it but then every time we felt like there was some major element missing and on one good day I came up with that breakdown melody and thought this is it. Then we sent it to Ampispazi Recodings and they loved it and offered us remix by the artist called ‘Hole Box’. He made a brilliant remix of it. After a few days of the release, I got a call from Jayesh saying we made it to top 100 deep house releases on beatport at that time we were on some 70 odd number and then went to 30th spot after a couple of days.
Tell us, what does a typical day in the studio mean to you?
5-6 mugs of coffee to start with. It’s a staple drink. Lots of Brainstorming. Music is like a religion for us. We study so many artists while we produce. We just love the process of making music. So It’s very simple, music inspire us to make music.
What are the various equipment and gear you have in your studio to facilitate production?
Starting from our studio monitors we have KRK Rokit 5, Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 soundcard to go with it. Satin black Jackson JS22 electric guitar. Orange’s guitar amp. Fender’s acoustic guitar I don’t remember the model. Tama Imperialstar 6 piece drum kit. The latest addition is the best we have which is our first analog synthesizer “ Moog Subsequent 37”.
How has the struggle been so far to your current stand?
The struggle is real no doubt but that is part and parcel of any stream. In the beginning, it was a little difficult especially when you have to convince your parents at the same time concentrate on what you’re doing. It’s all worth it though.
Is the path ahead more struggling or does it get better from here?
I personally feel the struggle is endless. It depends on your point of view. It’s all about making it better than before and find your way through the chaos.
Not necessarily monetary, how have the rewards been so far in this career?
People are listening to our music worldwide. Even labels are loving it. Even we’re enjoying our process more than ever. So it’s been great till now and surely will get better.
Why did you choose this career? Do you think there are other reasons to choose too?
I’m a very introverted person, to be honest. I always indulged myself in various kinds of art forms. Be it sketching, painting, music etc. Among all of them music kept me sane. Be it listening or creating. So Music it is.
A label which was tough to get your music signed on?
Soundteller was definitely the toughest. Since the label has pretty huge artists under their belt & have support from artists like Guy J, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren. We were trying since quite a few years to release under that label but things didn’t work. Now finally this year we had the first release with them.
How easy/difficult it is to release music in your genre?
It is always a little difficult to please top-notch labels because they want really high-quality stuff but that helps to push yourself. exceeding your limits and getting better, that’s all we thrive for. So nothing easy/difficult about it as long as you love what you’re doing.
Sometimes you just have to make so many sacrifices in order to get that one thing you want. The perpetual conflict between your conscious and Sub-conscious mind which you have to deal with no matter what to survive. In the end, it’s all worth it.
Well, thank you once again for spending time with us, giving us valuable insight into your career. We wish you all the very best of luck in your endeavours. See you soon at a club.
