Innellea: Inside the World of Distorted Youth: Interview

When you think of someone who has had a mind-blowing impact on the world of melodic techno, your thoughts should immediately go to Innellea. The German producer is already known as a master of all musical professions and now continues to stand out by releasing his latest Extended Play titled “Distorted Youth” with her music video, tour and fashion line. Today we take a peek into the world of Innellea and find out how “Distorted Youth” has come to.

Hello Innellea, first of all, we’d like to say it’s an honor to be able to chat with you for the February issue of We Rave You magazine today, and we want to wish you a Happy New Year. How did you find 2021 was for you?

Hey guys, thanks for having me and happy new year too. In fact, it was a very mixed year with a lot of ups and downs but if I think about it, I have to say that I did my best.

Last year you released a lot of amazing tracks, and you already started this year with the massive release of the four-track album “Distorted Youth”. Can you tell us more about this Extended Play and the creative process behind it?

The EP was created at the start of the pandemic. ‘Distorted youth‘ was for me like an outlet from which I was able to evacuate frustration, disappointment and dissatisfaction. When I realized how many emotions I was putting into the record, I started to realize that “Distorted Youth” is more than “just” music.

You also released an amazing ambient video for one of the tracks in this Extended Play. Can you explain in detail what creating the music video for the track was like? “Distorted Youth” and the story you hope to convey with it?

It was a very exciting process to work closely with director Marco Fumolo. He directly understood my intention behind the song and formed an incredible story around it. I don’t want to waste its potential
