Clonefluence had the chance to interview JOGUTHEARCHITECT about his release Hada Verde.
What is the meaning behind Hada Verde?
Hada Verde is a tale of drinking absinthe in Okinawa. Hada Verde in English is green fairy. There was this bar called the Hermit House and that was the first place that I’ve ever tried this drink called the green fairy which had absinthe. It was my first time trying absinthe and let me tell you, that concoction was some powerful stuff. Drinking two of these equaled to at least a bottle of liquor. Drinking two, three of these in under 30 minutes had you feeling some type of way. This song is about being under the influence of absinthe, the devils drink, Godzilla tequila. I know some of you that once you’re under the influence, you no longer have a filter. You won’t really care what other people think. You might even blackout and do things that you would’ve never thought to do! I say all of this because right next door to this cafe/bar, there’s a w*orehouse. Now a lot of people go there under the influence because it’s in close proximity. Keep in mind that people also went to the Hermit House sober and still went. Haha Anyway, during my period of living in Okinawa, this drink and that bar kick started my nightlife experience and for that I am forever grateful. Absinthe in my soul, spirit, blood, mental.
What does this project say about you?
Having fun exploring and refining my sound. Being bold in the face of uncertainty. I feel like there comes a time where your mind must be tested. Go against the grain of what you’re FEELING and just do it anyway. If it doesn’t work out, try again. In this case, it kind of did work out in my opinion. It worked out because the song has been streamed over 5,000 times. This is essentially a new sound, Spanish EDM trap. I haven’t heard anything like it yet. This song, if discovered by the right people, can have a massive impact in my life. Once again, this is uncertain and kind of uncomfortable but I’m having fun doing it.
What are your plans next?
Keep building the trap sound. EDM trap is the future. Also, continue to define my sound with other artists.
What do your project aim to say?
It means have fun, experience new things and live life while it lasts, build your character through trials and cycles. Remembering that bar is pure nostalgia for me. When I came up with the idea for this project, I was thinking of a time where every weekend, I would find and learn new about new things. Absinthe was one of those things that basically introduced me to the nightlife, therefore allowing me to explore even more parts about the world, people, myself, etc. It was a gateway. Shoutout to 2016-2017.
