Hey Blinders, thanks for joining us to celebrate your new single “Motorsport”! The title rings so true with the sound design and elements in the production. Can you talk to us about the inspiration and initial sketch?
Hey! Thank you for having me here. The inspiration for this track obviously came from motorsports. Drift cars, supercars, motorcycles were key words here. I did a lot of research on this to find the right sound of a vehicle that will fit to this kind of song. The general vibe of the track supposed to be a midtempo style with the gritty electro character. As a teenager I used to listen to a lot of electro stuff, so I went back to my CD collection to recall my favourite ones. I think that albums like Aleph, Cross or Mayday influenced my final sound as well.

How’d you build from there to the final production that we hear today?
I based my sound mainly on rotary engines and also V-constructed engine sounds. It often sounds like electro synths without doing anything with it. But I wanted the control, so I had to find a way to turn them into synths, so I could play melodies and do crazy stuff with it with full control. As I mentioned before it was also inspired by electro midtempo classics, so the final result is a song that contains synth parts made in a way like engine sounds and the structure of the song is based on electro music like Justice, Boys Noize, Gesaffelstein, Mr Oizo, etc. You will hear them in the mix!
 
 
It’s another signature Blinders release and you’ve really grown into your own on STMPD with a distinct sound. What are some of the key elements and themes that you think resonate across all of your music?
My synths are mostly based on some inspirations from the real word. It might be a real instrument, but also like in this case, even a car engine. A lot of my music is based on real instruments turned into huge synths that can bring the proper vibe on dancefloors. 
 
Looking closer at your Exclusive Mix, can you highlight three additional tracks included and why they stand out to you?
There is a lot of music that influenced me to make “Motorsport,” so get ready for a lot of mid-tempo and electro vibes :) Also there are a bunch of new tracks from my friends that I really like and wanted to share with you.
 
My favs – hmm... The first one could be “Opr” by Gesaffelstein. A very dark and heavy one.
 
The next one is Justice - “Waters Of Nazareth.” I think that is the song that made me an electro music fan back in the days.
 
And the last one is from one of my favourite bands ever, The Chemical Brothers, “I’ll See You There.” I did a mashup of it, but love listening to the original as well – crazy good mixture of EDM and blues/hard rock.
 
Switching gears, how have you been using your time over the past several months?
I think I’ve been mostly focusing my time on music and new ideas as we’re all kinda locked down. I’m also doing crazy things like building my lambo from Lego bricks haha... and it actually fits to the topic!
 
 
Without shows this summer, we thought it would be nice to reflect a bit. Could you highlight one or two of your all-time favorite gigs?
Tomorrowland in 2019 was insane! No doubt that it’s one of the best festivals in the world. I always love to play in my home country Poland as well, as my fanbase here is one of the biggest. Polish people know how to party. You can always hear and see a lot of energy and excitement in the crowd.
 
You’ve also had a chance to play some crazy b2b sets during the COVID period, so talk to us some more about those and the chance to come together with fellow Polish artists.
In June when the lockdown in Poland was over, I decided to throw a private house party and I invited my friends to play and take a part in the livestream that happened that day. So I had Julian Jordan, Sikdope, TV Noise, Todd Helder, Skytech, Fafaq, Guy Arthur and Loud About Us. Most of the sets were streamed live from our apartment in Poznan, where we indeed did a small b2b. Good times! I called the event 'Blinders And Friends’ and if you want to check it it’s on my YouTube channel.

Another livestream event took place in August at Silesian Stadium. It was a huge livestream event with a festival production and I think we broke a world record – 12 DJs playing one set!
 
 
As people in all industries, but especially in the electronic dance music world, seem to fight a daily challenge to find creativity and positivity in their lives, do you have any advice to share for those struggling to find both productivity and balance?
I’m probably one of them, struggling and missing touring a lot, but at the same time we have a lot of time to rest, to think about new directions of our music, to create, etc. So it’s still good in some way! We all should stay healthy and positive, work hard and be ready for new challenges!
 
And as we look ahead what’s one thing that has you excited to close out 2020 and one thing you’re looking forward to in 2021?
I think that I made more song ideas than ever which is cool! I hope 2021 will bring back festivals and touring because I miss them a lot!
