Scantraxx Silver artist Scabtik recently announced his biggest project to date, his Opus One EP. We sat down with the next-level talented producer to talk about the project, the idea behind it, and much more.
- Hey Jeroen, you just announced your biggest project to date, can you tell us more about that?
Hey there! I have been working on my new concept ‘Opus’ for quite a while and now it’s finally time to show you what I’ve been up to. The main idea behind Opus is that I want to tell a story and let people experience a musical journey when listening to my music. The trailer that was released a few weeks back sets the mood perfectly.
- What’s the story behind Opus One?
I'll start by explaining the origin of the word 'Opus'. Opus translates as work in Latin. In the 18th and 19th century musicians didn't name their musical pieces as we do nowadays, they actually numbered their works with an 'Opus' number. So Opus One basically means first work, my first work. And of course, Opus One is not my first work, however, it is the first part of a new era for me, a new chapter of a musician. This EP will introduce a more evolved sound and it therefore feels deserving of such an emphasizing title.
