1- Nicholas, How did you two come together to form EANP, and what inspired you to pursue electronic progressive house music?
“We complement each other in ideas and musical taste, but also in the production process. Whereas Ezequiel has perfect pitch, and therefore improvise melodies by ear, I studied at the EMBA, and am more systematic. It’s a great combination. As for progressive house, we were primarily inspired by Hernan Cattaneo, who helped us grow in our career. But there were also other national and international inspirators, like Guy J and Ezequiel Arias.”
2- Progressive house is a genre known for its evolving melodies and captivating energy. What elements do you incorporate into your music to set you apart from other artists in the genre?
“We mainly incorporate elements that are interesting, organic, and have their own story. It’s like making a movie, with lots of cinematic qualities, catchy melodies, and a plot twist that needs to surprise.”
3- Your latest release, EANP “Lilac” , has been widely acclaimed for its innovative production and emotional depth. Could you share with us the creative process behind that particular track and the message you aimed to convey?
“We always listen to new music, from other genres, other styles, and artist sets. We’re always looking for details that catch our attention and trigger ideas. Each one of us individually starts developing idea demos, then when we feel it’s ready, we don’t just pass the projects around, we cooperate to add things or improve a sound. We implement new ideas and pay attention to very detail. As far as our musical message is concerned, we strive for unity, peace, well-being, and creating moments that people can relate to.”
4- As a duo, collaboration and synergy are crucial. How do you navigate the creative process, ensuring that both of your unique musical visions are fully expressed while maintaining a cohesive sound?
“We always discuss the aesthetics we want, how we want to sound, but when we have differences, we try to give each other the opportunity and trust. Many times, those kinds of decisions have led us to very important paths in our career, like Visor Life & Stamp. We had different ideas, we weren’t convinced, and we couldn’t agree. But we gave each other opportunities, and that’s where the magic of music often happens, in the unexpected.”
5- EANP has performed at numerous prestigious venues and festivals, both nationally and internationally. How do you prepare for live performances, and what can fans expect from you on stage?
“It’s always great to put together a set. We consider many details of the night, like the time, the type of event, or the most popular genre, and then we adapt accordingly. In Argentina, we are usually hired for our music and to play progressive house, but in other countries, we have to open up to different musical opportunities and adapt without losing our essence. Nowadays, we are using 100% of our own music in our sets. We create many tracks specifically before each gig, to test them live. We always consider various factors like moments, track type, and scale. This ensures that our sets are unique and original, so we can give the audience an exclusive show!”
6- With the ever-evolving landscape of electronic music, how do you stay ahead of the curve and continue to push boundaries within the progressive house genre?
“To stay at the forefront, it’s crucial to constantly study, learn, and improve. So, it’s important to have no fear of experimenting or innovating. Sometimes, you just try some crazy things in the most unexpected places, but then people come up to us, asking who created that track.”
7- The Buenos Aires music scene is renowned for its vibrant energy and diverse electronic music culture. How has being based in Argentina influenced your artistic development and contributed to your musical identity as EANP?
“Argentinians, like many Latin Americans, are passionate and emotional. That Latin warmth is reflected in our music, our shows, and the people. That’s why many people from other countries love our way, how we express our feelings through music. They become loyal followers. Being Argentine or Latin is a trademark around the world. We transmit that passion to the dance floor.”
