This week we catch up with London based music producer Mauro. We're glad that we found some time to catch up with him and see how he's been keeping - it's been such a while. How time flies! Read on to read his Chronicle.
M-SEW: Where did you grow up?
Mauro: East London, moved all around but always remained East. What's your favourite spot in your house/room/space? My bedroom music studio!
What's your look for your first lockdown outing?
Dr Martens 1461, Black Slim Fit Jeans, White T-Shirt and a Levis Black Denim Jacket. Smart
Who's your inspiration?
TImbaland, Quincy Jones, Mark Ronson, Justice, Kevin Parker, all figures who've contributed to music on a grand scale.
What's your favourite book/film/song during lockdown? I'd say In Time (2011) with Timberlake and Seyfried. Although being almost a decade old it's base concept this appeals to me with the idea of time being a luxury that ironically most of us now have.
Film: Original music by Aden Peets.
What's the most surprising thing you've learnt about yourself during lockdown? How much I actually enjoy socialising considering I'm quite the introvert and enjoy living in my little shell.
What plans did you have that were cancelled thanks to Rona? A number of live shows lined up, all cancelled :( with a cappin' off of potentially travelling somewhere warm.
What artist/creator did you discover during lockdown? An amazing visual artist named Logan Sylve (@lilblackgoat), perfect blend of George Condo and Basquiat with a modern twist and YouTuber Rhea Ellen because we all need to laugh considering how tense things are and her rants always hit home for me.
Favourite inspirational quote during lockdown ? "Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today" .
Good times with good company. We hope you're enjoying this series as much as we are.
