KHANS,

new generation band from Eastern Slovakia. Nuri (19) is rather involved in production and DJ-ing, Nicholas Naison (22) and Saul (19) rather in rap and singing. I write rather, because they unanimously point out during the interview that they are involved in the whole production together. In this arrangement, they are operating since 2014. 

During this time, they managed to create their own, more beautiful reality. Musical projects come out of it, such as EP Sny (en: Dreams) by Nicholas Naison, recently released EP Hotel 471 by Saul, who had also two feats on Samey's album MNKPD. This album was supervised by Nuri, who also participade as a DJ on Rockstar steez tour. In addition, he played a DJ set at the world-famous Places+Faces party. The most recent event was their concert under the wings of F*CK THEM, where they played before Russian superstar Pharaoh.

"We are looking at the same moon as DaVinci, Bosch and Tesla.
It's fascinating that all the things they created,
were created under the same sky, and that's something that moves us forward."

 

Why do you think you are a new generation? What is difference, what’s new?

We want to bring more art to art. We want to bring real feelings back. It is very important to create conditions through our art to improve people’s lives and their lifestyle. All that's going on is just the beginning, but it's always been more than just a music. It is a movement, it is an idea, it is a feeling, design, quality of life and happiness of everyone who listens and who is with us. 

Great changes are not brought by politicians, great changes are brought by artists and creative children, who’s only a few people gives a feeling throug music that what they do is important and what they feel is even more important. That's what we're doing, it'll be our album „Ku Hviezdam A Nikdy Späť!“ (en: To the stars and never back!). The Renaissance is back and we are at the beginning. Wedoitforthekids. 

 

How would you compare SK/CZ to the world scene in art and subculture?

Two things. Money and cooperation. We have less money in art, and people who have money, great honor for exceptions, do nothing to create great experiences, more sophisticated products...

We all want money and the luxury of choice they bring. We all want to wear designer clothes and drive the best cars, eat good food, etc... but almost nobody wants to share the responsibility they bring. We need to constantly improve ourselves. Concerts, video clips, everything what shapes the culture and people. This is still a little misunderstood here and it‘s something we all need to cooperate on. It‘s time to work with the heart and not with the ego, what will remain as our common work, not personal problems.

What's is your life inspiration?

People and the universe.

 

The universe?

People have been always staring at the sky, it's something we all have in common. We are looking at the same moon as DaVinci, Bosch and Tesla were looking. It's fascinating that all the things they created, were created under the same sky, and that's something that moves us forward. Everybody has it‘s own universe, especially in the summer morning, around 4.20, hehe.

 

What do you prepare?

Merch and commercial flights to the stars.
