Eyes On: SugarHill


Here at Electronica Oasis, we had the pleasure of interviewing SugarHill. A Brazilian producer who is part of the budding Erase Records crew. Here’s a bit more insight from the man himself:

ElectronicaOasis: How did you come up with the name SugarHill?
SugarHill: I was looking for something that sounds old school and funky. So after some research online I saw that it was available on both Soundcloud and Beatport.

EO: Who are some of your biggest musical influences?
SH: Thomas Bangalter. He made a lot of innovations in disco music. I also used to listen to a good amount of electro-clash years ago, like Miss Kittin, The Hacker and DJ Hell.

EO:If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing?
SH: Probably something in film. I like to make videos and I really love movies. I bought a nice camera some years ago and began to study a lot of filming technics. I’m also really into visual art. I like to draw tattoos.

EO: Where is your favorite holiday destination?
SH: I don’t really like staying on vacations. Honestly, I prefer traveling for my gigs, my work is an absolute pleasure to me.

EO: Whats your favorite type of sound on a synth?
SH: At the moment I’m looking for those heavy but clean and objective bass lines. I really strive to find those sounds from the 80’s and 90’s but with modern day quality. Something between organic and digital.

Lover of all things with soul that make you wanna move and groove. Bring on the funk!
