Jamaica Remix Dubfire Remix Minilogue. Control Original Mix Dataworx. It's definitely a big factor now on the compositions. NF: It's varied album to album. But as time has gone on I've definitely found making music to be less stressful. With my debut ['s Drowning in a Sea of Love ] there was a lot of self-created pressure. I was keen for the album to be a big statement, which can sometimes make the creative process difficult.
I also had no idea what kind of person was going to buy it or even if an audience existed for my music. Obviously, after doing this for several years the need to make that 'big statement' has lessened and I'm more confident that I've got an audience. You've done a bit of remixing over the last few years. What do you prefer more, working on other people's music or creating your own?
NF: I'm actually not a massive fan of remixing. I can do it alright but I'd much rather be working on my own stuff. The problem with remixing is that it feels too much like real work. You have deadlines and a brief to work to. I've enjoyed parts of it, like working with Radiohead, but given a choice it's creating my own stuff that really excites me. Do you find composing by yourself rather than collaborating with others a lonely experience? NF: Writing on my own is all I've ever known, as all the music I've done has been pretty much just me, so I've no comparison really.
The only band I've been in was one in college, but that wasn't serious. I've occasionally attempted to write music with my friends but it doesn't work out. It's just a completely different sort of working process.
I'm used to doing things my way and not having someone else question my decisions. And I prefer it like that. It might sound a bit selfish but it's the way I like to work. As for feeling lonely or isolated, it's not something I've really experienced when writing.
NF: I make a point of trying not to listen to other people's music when I'm creating my own work. I find it too distracting and I don't like the idea of someone else's sounds bleeding into my own. But members of the Border Community do like to send each other their work so, if I listen to anything in any volume then it's probably that.
NF: It's hugely important. I'm so glad that all those years ago I took a chance and emailed James Holden [BC label head] a track that I hadn't quite finished. He e-mailed me back saying he liked it but asked if I could send back a finished version. That eventually ended up being my first track that came out on Border Community.
