Trap musicians Stööki Sound share their mesmerising new single ‘Revival’ via Quality Goods Records. Bold Stööki Sound is comprised of DJ Lukey and Jelacee, and their music is likened to the musical sound of the likes of Troyboi and Baauer just to name a few. For Jelacee and DJ Lukey, the creation of music also extends to other artistic pursuits and aspirations. ‘Revival’ marches on majestically into the hearts, minds and souls of listeners intentionally with the aim of truly fostering transformation with its grandiose but soft echoing, its echoing synths, and its slowed-down beat. The single has the power to rejuvenate listeners, paying homage to its title. Continue reading for the full interview.

Take us through your list of dream software/gear you would like to get?
I’ve always wanted some Adam Audio studio monitors and my own treated studio room. I also intend on getting a Neumann TLM 102 microphone and an Apollo audio interface. I don’t really use outboard synths but I’d like to get a Moog Grandmother as well.
What do you need with you when you sit down to write or produce?
As I’m getting further into my production career I’m starting to realise that I love producing with other people and energies in the room. Sitting at your computer alone for hours becomes very robotic after a while, and I think having other energies (albeit choosing the right ones) can be very beneficial to production as sometimes you’ll second guess yourself and live in your head rather than in the moment.
What other artistic revenues do you pursue?
At the moment my sole focus is music production and live performances.
Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, what do you prefer?
Interacting with a live audience hands down.
What has been the most memorable moment of your career so far?
Probably our b2b with UZ at Bass Academy. That show was monumental. Also, the biggest crowd that we’ve played to date.
Name 3 artists you would love to collaborate with in the future
RL Grime, G Jones, Alison Wonderland.
Do you think music should provide social commentary and reflect the current world?
Not always. Music for me is a form of escapism. Sometimes that means writing emotions and experiences reflecting the world into songs. Other times it’s a way to escape from reality.
What can we expect from you in the near future? Any upcoming projects or gigs in the pipeline that you would like to tell us about?
We have a lot of new music on the way, solos and some special collaborations in the works. We’re rebuilding at the moment and taking our time to curate the best version of Stööki Sound that we can possibly make.
One last thought to leave your fans with?
We want to thank the supporters for a decade of support and look forward to continuing to grow with them and create new memories and experiences together.
