Chamber doom. Sonic rape. Religious. Extremely Dark. Harrowing. Monolithic. Born in Heaven. Electrocution. The opposite of a nightmare. All these expressions have been used to describe Mohammad’s music.
Mohammad produce their sound through custom made instruments and software, bringing together low frequencies, inter-modulations, dark textures, and distant folk nuances. They have recently released ‘Segondè Saleco‘, the third and final installment of a trilogy that explores the sounds of the geographical area between 34°Ν–42°Ν & 19°Ε–29°Ε. ‘Segondè Saleco’ is the final catharsis which signals a dramatic change of atmosphere in the trio’s signature sound. The first and second volumes, ‘Zo Rèl Do’ and ‘Lamnè Gastama’ were released in spring and fall 2014 respectively. We spoke to Nikos Veliotis, Coti K and Ilios about the dynamics behind Mohammad, the journey of this dexterous trilogy and the experimental music scene in the middle of the Greek crisis. To get a more intense insight into Mohammad’s world, they’ve also prepared a guest mix featuring plenty of unreleased material and other delicacies that perfectly fit into their aural atmosphere.
