WOOHOO! We’re going to have our first interview in the Eatyourkimchi Nasty Studio! We’ve been working on this for a while now, and we’ve finally confirmed a date and time that works for all of us, and…TA-DA! We’re going to interview Clazziquai Project! Sweet!

Now, some of you might know that we totally freaking love them. They’re not big on our KpopCharts, but they’re an immensely talented group that has made some of our favorite Korean songs ever. We’ve heard them described often as a gateway into Korean music. They’re super accessible, have great beats and great voices.

Hell. We can gush on over them for hours. But we won’t. We’re just happy that they want to come by the studio. AH! I’m so nervous! I never had to do an interview on my own. It’s usually Martina who does most of the heavy lifting, but she’s away in Canada for a bit, so I have to do this interview solo. I’m usually the awkward one behind the camera. Now I’m gonna be the awkward one IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA! EEEP!

Guise: help me out. Give me some good questions to ask Clazziquai Project. If we like your question, we’ll ask it to them, and even say your name and location, so Clazziquai Project could know just where the awesomeness is coming from.

Otherwise, if you’re not very familiar with Clazziquai Project yet, we made a playlist (but forgot to announce it till the end of the video). You can check out the playlist embedded above, or just their latest song below. Woot!

  2. Sarah Haro – San Antonio, Texas
    Who are your favorite international artists? Do you follow/listen to any Latin American artists?

  3. Is there any Idol you would want to work with :-)
    Büsra Germany

  4. I’m a huge fan of Clazzi’s album Infant and I’m wondering if Clazziquai will do more electro songs or perhaps an entire album. I’m positive there are many fans who really loved songs like ‘Love Again’ and ‘PING’ which were great electro songs!

    Can’t wait for that new album,

    What’s gonna happen when Horan get married? Will you guys stop for a while or something like that?

  7. Hi Simon&Martina. Here is a comments from a fan of you guys from China~.
    I really love Clazziquai. The first time I heard about them is from the OST they made for KimSamSoon. That is my favorite OST. Thought I didn’t listen Kpop music I listened Clazziquai. They did great cooperation with M-Flo.I love every version of Love Mode. What I want to ask them is do they still make cooperation or featuring with other musician? What is the different in electronic music making between Japan and South Korea. Thank you Simon and Martina~

  8. Congratulations Simon&Martina~ The Nasty Studios couldn’t have a better group as the first to sit in the couch!!

    Here’s my question:

    What the pig in the cover of your albums stands for??

    Ana – Mexico City

    Haha sorry is just that I couldnt find the answer anywhere… just love Clazziquai they always make proud showing them off with non korean pop listeners, and also they were one of the very first groups I discoverded, just love them!!!!

  9. Hi, Alice from Vancouver, Canada :D

    What was it like when you first decided to pursue music as a profession instead of just a hobby? Were your parents supportive of your decision to become a musician?

    Thank you Martina and Simon! Can’t wait to see the interview~

  10. How is the recording process of an album? Does DJ Clazzi becomes a perfectionist when it comes to recording or do you interpret the meaning of the lyrics in a more free way? (Questions for Horan and Alex)

    Which other artists be it korean or foreigners would you like to collaborate, be it featuring in a song or producing?

    What do you think of the same kind of sound and monotony that sometimes is visible in K-Pop groups?( For DJ Clazzi)

    Last but not least, would you be interested in collaborating with a rock band, for example Nell?

    Gavi Garcia- Mexico

    Simon, I’m so excited that u r interviewing them, I’ve been their fan for ages, they were one of the groups that introduced me to korean music, I hope you have a great time with them and thank you so much for everything that u guise do for us, nasties!! Lots of Love from Mexico.

    I immediately fell in love with Clazziquai after discovering “Tell Yourself”. What is your inspiration for your music (from “light” electronic to ballads)? And what compels you all to always come back and do albums together?

    For funsies: who acts the most ridiculous / has the most ridiculous ideas on set?

  12. Kim-Seattle U.S
    What is your favorite thing to do as a band when your not on stage preforming?

  13. Question: There are heaps of rookies debuting lately. What is your impression of this explosion?

    thank you ^_^

  14. If any of you could travel back in time, would you want to fix anything or do anything over again? Or would you leave everything as it was?

    Hi Clazziquai Project and Simon :)

    Do the three of you have any plans on coming to do a show in Canada or North America? I’d love to see you guys live!
    I was wondering if you could sing a part of a song from “Instant Pig or Mucho Punk”?

    Those are my favourite albums of yours :3

  16. I like ‘Come to me (remix)’ and ‘Tell yourself’ the most – so unique and dreamy. I like other songs as well!

    Can you tell us about your creating process?. What is each individual member’s role in it? Is the final “product” something always all of you agree on?

  28. Magi from Poland :)
    Do you ever fight over best ideas for the songs? Who decides about the final shape of the compositions? Who is the biggest perfectionist when it comes to creating your music?

  29. Tamar – NYC, USA

    What song do you think is the definition of Clazziqaui? Meaning, you have a lot of different sounds, so if you had to have one song remembered as the epitome of your sound, what would it be?

  30. Anna – Kiev, Ukraine
    Clazziquai Project’s music in my opinion varies a
    lot from the K-pop trend there is now and I’d even say there’s this
    european feel to it. So how would ech member charactarise their music:
    “korean like”, “american like” or “european like”? ^^
