Interview with Fredrik Mattsson of TITANS

Interview with Fredrik Mattsson of Titans by optix-noir:

"After the collapse of the band The Enders, Titans rose out of its ashes in 2004. It was time for a new direction and new ideas.

A focus on driven beats and strong melodies. After a few years as the sole member of Titans, Fredrik was joined by the former The Enders member Jimmy.

Once again together they are working hard on new music, collaborations and remixes."

Hi Fredrik, thank you for taking the time to answer my questions!

 

1. Tell us something about "Titans"!

Jimmy and I have done music together for ages it seems, ranging from hardest industrial to more club oriented stuff. At the beginning it was just for fun and we didn’t really plan to release anything.

We then went in different directions with our music and i started Titans by myself. But after a shorter time stretch Jimmy joined me again and that was when Titans became more serious.

We often disagree about stuff but in the end we are aiming for the same goal. We also complement each other perfect, we are both good songwriters but Jimmy is also a technical wizard.

2. You told me something about an upcoming release, when is it ready?

It’s in the pipelines as we speak.

3. You have already done some remixes for other bands, who was included?

We have done remixes for bands such as Leaether Strip,SPARK!, Biomekkanik and more.

4. What are your favorite bands?

Tough question but for me 4 bands have influenced me the most: Leather Strip, FLA, Wumpscut and In Strict Confidence.

5. Who would you like to work together with?

Hans Zimmer!! :) On a more serious note it would be really cool to do something with Bill Leeb or Dennis Ostermann. Those guys are just brilliant!

6. I've known about you (Titans) for a long time and know about all the tracks that were on the MySpace-player, will any of these tracks be released on the single?

Yes we will release one of them as our first single.

7. Is it possible to make any money with music these days?

There is no way in hell to earn money in this scene today. The people are killing their own genre, every sold copy is gold worth. People need to get back to their roots and do what they can to get the music out there.

8. Do you have any other bands or projects besides Titans?

We concentrate fully on Titans. Jimmy also has an old school band called Ondska. We believe in Titans so at the moment there isn’t time for anything else.

9. How did the collaboration with Dan van Hoyel come about?

We started talking via internet and became good friends almost instantly. I then asked him to do some vocals for me and from that day I knew he was the singer I was looking for.

His voice suited our music perfectly and I got him to "sign" with me before any other band did :) He is a fantastic vocalist and it feels like I have known him for 20 years, we are all easygoing guys with the same goal and values.

10. Are you still looking for a label or have you found one?

We have signed with the perfect label for us :) We had a few offers but when this came along there was no doubt.

11. What are your future plans?

First the single then it is time for our first album. We will also look into to play some gigs all over the world.

12. A few last words to our readers?

We would like to say thank you to our fantastic fans for staying with us all these years. We know you have been waiting a long time for a release and we know that you won’t be disappointed.

 

A few last words from me:

I like the Titans project very much, it's a great mix of styles that I've missed for a long time in music, I wish you all the best with this project and hope this all happened just as you like it if you had!
