MuzicNotez: First off, it’s an honor to be doing this interview with you Erik, thanks for taking the time to sit down with us.
What motivated you to start creating music? What age did you begin?
Convulsic: Its funny, I tell everyone about it. I remember being really young and hearing different techno remixes of video games like Zelda or Mario or something and I always wanted to make it. Turns out, Dubstep is where it took me.
MuzicNotez: How did you come up with the name Convulsic?
Convulsic: I wanted something that was different but still easy to find and obviously when people dance to Dubstep, it seems like a Convulsion, but from the business side of things, I wanted it to be search engine friendly, so I thought of a Convulsic Syndrome, hence why my first EP is also called Syndrome. People look up Convulsic Syndrome, they find me!
MuzicNotez: Who were your musical influences, idols, or bands growing up that have helped mold you into the musician you are today? Or helped mold the music that you create?
Convulsic: I actually used to play in a reggae rock band, so bands like Rebelution and The Expendables were my go to. All along, I was listening to Electronic music like Tiesto and Swedish House. Then Skrillex came out and completely blew my mind and I decided to make Dubstep. Now, I really follow Zomboy, Avius, Seven Lions, and anything that has that melodic sound with intense bass drops.
MuzicNotez: What’s the greatest concert you’ve ever been to or performed?
Wow I would say the greatest show I ever saw was Incubus! They played the greatest hits tour in San Diego and it had all of their best songs. Completely blew me away!
MuzicNotez: What’s the ultimate goal you want your music to achieve, or for you to achieve in your career as a musician? Any particular message you wish to send?
Convulsic: Yes. I have told everyone from the beginning, that I want to achieve my goals in the most respectable way possible. I want people to see that the music industry doesn’t need to be so cutthroat. We can help each other ride to the top! That’s why you will never hear me have negativity on someone else’s art.
