Rhythms and Revelations: Inside the Mind of Sandio

Today, we’re diving into the world of Drum and Bass with none other than Sandio,a promising multi-talented music who is steadily climbing up the ladder of being one of the best when it comes to great music. And we got the chance to listen to his latest single and bou o boy, this isn’t something you expected. His latest track, “Forever,” isn’t just a song—it’s a whole vibe that hits you right in the feels.

So, who’s Sandio? Well, that is a name his brother gave him and since he has adopted it as his stage name and performs under the moniker. No deep story there, just some sibling love, you know?

In a recent interview with Mister Styx of Musicarenagh, Sandio was asked about his creative process, he shared it is mostly from jamming out to other Drum and Bass tracks and getting inspired by stuff like horror games and movies. Talk about diverse influences!

Growing up, music was Sandio’s jam. He started tickling the ivories at age 6 and even graduated from a music school in Austria. Must’ve been some serious piano chops!

Talk about inheriting the talent, music runs in the family—his grandma was an opera singer. But how did Sandio get into the music biz? Well, after hitting up Let it Roll festival, he was like, “Yep, this is my thing.”

But it’s not all rainbows and unicorns—self-doubt creeps in sometimes. But hey, that’s the artist’s journey, right?

So, buckle up and join us as we groove to the rhythm of Sandio’s beats, where music isn’t just a sound—it’s a whole vibe.

How could you describe your music?

I’d say for this track specifically I was trying to make something that can reach a lot of people. A lot of Drum and Bass is “too hard” for some, so I tried to make this track more accessible.

Describe your creative process.

Vastly differs from Track to track. Sometimes I find a sample and mangle it a lot until I get some ideas, sometimes a melody comes to my head while im just arranging drums and I go with that.

What is your main inspiration?

At the moment I’d say Mick Gordons Doom Soundtrack

Staying true to my country I’d say Mefjus. Though there are a lot of incredible Drum and Bass artists who deserve a lot more attention than they have right now.

I’m still at the beginning of my journey so I don’t think I can call anything “my style” just yet.

My Ego

I enjoy playing Video Games and watching Horror movies a lot!

I can’t really say, I’m still just 18 after all

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?

Never being content with my work, talking myself down, feeling like I could never reach my goals. It’s scary

Why did you choose this as the title of this project?

It’s what the Lyrics say. I think that makes people connect the song with the title

What are your plans for the coming months?

I’m working on a bigger project that I have high hopes for. Can’t spoil anything yet

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans

I would love to collaborate with other Austrian Drum and Bass Producers like Fourward, Screamarts and Mefjus!

What message would you like to give to your fans?

I see each and every one of you. And I’m thankful for each and every one! Every like/play/follow shows me that I have impact on somebody and that is what’s driving me to go further with my music.
