Relatively new to the music scene, Ghostroom Apollo released his very first single titled “Cadet” earlier last month.
The song exudes a sci-fi catchy rhythm that draws the listener in. We chatted with the producer/artist to discuss the inspiration and process behind “Cadet” and how it came to be.
“I can’t remember specifically how I came up with the idea for the song, but I believe it was while I was creating some custom drum sounds in Ableton Live. It made me think of space and Sci-fi things I love, but also made me think of where I’ve been over past several years. It’s me admitting in away, that I’ve been kind of a space cadet for much of my life.The song became both a reflection of myself, but also of themes I love in life: wonder, relationship, and the hero’s journey.
The process of creating the song spanned a good chunk of time. Years actually. And it wasn’t because I spent years of time working on it, I just wasn’t at a point in my life that I could dedicate consistent time to it. So I’d work on it here and there, come back to it months later, work on it again for a day or two, repeat.”
