Lucky Sun: “Inspiration comes from dance floors, beaches, poolside, and home stereo listening sessions”

EG caught up with Ede to learn more about the release of ‘Kadre’ on Siamese, his plans for the Summer, future releases, and more.
EG: Hello Ede! Welcome to EG. It’s a pleasure to have you here with us today. Where are you based right now? How have you been?
Ede: Hi! Thanks for having me, it’s a pleasure. I am fine and enjoying the summer in Berlin. Right now, I am on my way to the Fuchs & Hase festival.
EG: Congratulations on the drop of ‘Kadre’! Were you expecting such a positive reaction to it? What were the first impressions you got when you first showed it around?
Ede: Thank you. People are always surprised by my music because there is not really a box you can fit me in, so you can expect the unexpected ;)
I try always different ways and genres to do music. This was my first breakbeat track and the reactions were great.
EG: We’re big fans of ‘Kadre’, by the way. Just a gorgeous cut. Where did the inspiration come from? And what was the process for this particular piece like? Did you go through a long and complex process to finish it? Did it just come out with the flow?
Ede: In the process of making music, sometimes there is one point where I just start crying, and then I know this is a track straight out of my soul. ‘Kadre’ is one of these special ones, and probably the most emotional track I have done so far. And I finished it very quickly because I was in this special flow.
EG: We know you’re poised for a big year with upcoming releases on labels like Watergate Records, Frau Blau, and Applied Magic as well. What can you tell us about these?
Ede: They all are different ;)
EG: Inspiration. Overrated or underrated? Where do you go to for inspiration?
Ede: This is a hard question. But I think, first of all, doing music constantly is the key. Then, if you have a lucky day, the inspiration comes. But in general, I am never NOT working. I usually try to listen to music in all genres and I like to listen to DJ sets as well.
EG: Summer is here! What are your plans for this season?
Ede: Just enjoying the summer and playing at some nice festivals like the ‘Pangea About you Festival’.
EG: These past few years gave us all a chance to slow down and reassess. What would you like to see more and less of in our scene?
Ede: Mores support between artists in any cases and a lot less ego.
EG: What else can we expect from Ede in the next few months? What new milestones are you looking forward to?
Ede: There is this idea that has been gaining strength these last months, which is that of doing an album. But, it’s still an idea =)
EG: Thank you for your time, Ede! We wish you all the best!
Ede: Welcome and thank you a lot.
