Boasting themselves as a one of a kind act, 3logit are trying to push the edge in EDM, D'n'B, and dubstep utilizing the four members of their band and the unofficial fifth member, the server. I had the chance to talk with an unnamed member and have a quick ten question quiz.

Alright, let's start off with the basics; what exactly is 3logit?

3logit - "3logit is a musical group, a live band. We feel this fact itself to be a kind of extraordinary if we consider the genre we play on our musical instruments - EDM/DnB/dubstep. Because up to the present days these genres are performed almost exclusively by DJás all around the world."

Who are involved in the project? I know it said four DJs started it, but who exactly?

3logit - "False, even the founders were not Dás. The idea of playing the EDM/DnB/dubstep styles mixed with the hardánáheavy guitar originated in the mind of our guitarist and band-leader, EDMOQ. About 3 years ago from now he played in a nu-metal band together with our sub-bassist P3T1A and the drummer SYNTH4X. EDMOQ was a DnB enthusiast, besides the heavy metal styles, capable of both composing catchy melodies and programming. We have engaged an excellent singer nicked ZLORD who has a metal past as well. He is able to rap and he growls just like a hard-core star, but he is also capable of lyrical singing which matches all the requirements of the genre we follow."

On the whole side, you guys really hit on a lot of different genres. Which genre do you think stands out the most?

3logit - "Most probably it would be dubstep, of course mixed with guitar riffs. Some of our fans count us among metalstep therefore, but we do not consider ourselves to match this cathegory. Metalstep is probably mostly known as performed by Destroid founded by the Canadian DJ Excision. First of all, Destroid is a group of DJás mostly simulating they play the musical instruments during their incommon shows. Genre-wise their metalstep is a bit harder than our compositions and it does not contain a singing line, contrary to us. Our tracks have a structure of common songs (verse/chorus) interposed with typical dubstep drops."

Now, I've know you've been boasting that 3logit is a one-of-a-kind band. How is that?

3logit - "Yes, according to all accessible information there is no such concept working in the industry similar to the ours. As for the technical point of view and also in terms of the genre, as we said."

And, as of so far, have you released any albums? And, if not, is anything in the works as of now?

3logit - "No, unfortunately no album was released yet. However we have material enough to record it. Also all the instrumental parts of the tracks we perform are ready in a recordable quality, so what we need is to find up a free time-slot to record the vocal parts."

Where have you played this far? And how has the feedback been?

3logit - "As our first gig came into being during April 2014 only, there have not been many live shows effected till now. All of them took place in the Czech Republic, our homeland. Our fan base, however, gets more and more strong abroad as well and we feel we could soon get some deals in bordering countries, mainly in Germany and Poland. Our aim, however, is to get a global audience, which leads us to address overseas labels to sign us. And we are glad to say that we are in a closer negotiations with two US labels which are sub-labels of industry leaders. If everything goes well we would like to get some tours booked from one them both in Europe and in US soon."

Your slogan on FaceBook is "IN DIGITAL GOD WE TRUST". Do you incorporate religious themes into your music, or is that just for fun? Do you go by any themes at all with your band?

3logit - "Nice to speak about the lyrics, too, thanks for asking! The slogan In Digital God We Trust has nothing to do with any real church or religion. We use this to say our fans we heavily use the cutting-edge computer technologies to create our music. You can say it is an addiction, but if you called it a sort of religion, we would pray to the Digital God to bless you!

As for the lyrics to our tracks we mostly collaborate with our friend here in the Czech Republic, Martina Hoskova aka WARRIORWOMAN. She is flexible enough to adapt her verses to the music even in case of additional changes. Even so, we used lyrics from an American lyrics-writer Matt Sorbo to one of our tracks (Diamond Eyes) and one (All Senses Awake) uses lyrics written by our singer, ZLORD. With the themes we use in the lyrics we mostly try to address the audience with a positive appeal: people, feel strong and be happy!"

You say that the server is a fifth band member in a sense. What does that mean, exactly? What does the server do?

3logit - "Another good question! In our promo materials we declare that we play our music on a computer server controlled over the musical instruments. Now, your very readers will know the true story as the first ones in the world! :-) In fact we use that slogan because it is much easier to be understood supposed you have only few words to use for description. The truth is, however, that in reality the server controlls us over our musical instruments. How does it come? The server is pre-programmed to assign various (but defined) sounds to the individual instruments in the real time. Thus you can hear the guitar playing sometimes like a synthesizer or the drums fluently changing their sound during a break.

This requires a lot of concentration and synchronicity during the playing, of course, and it creates something that you may call a cyborg music."

And, can you name off a few inspirations for your project? What really made you wanna do this?

3logit - "Speaking about dubstep we gained the original inspiration from early-times papa Skrillex, as for the drum and bass, EDMOQ, our composer, was once in love with The Prodigy. At the time being we often listen to Deadmou5e, Zomboy and Kill the Noise, to name at least the most frequent."

And, that's all for this quick questionnaire. I give you the space below to say what you wish, and to thank whoever you wish:

3logit - "What we wlould like to add is that we are sort of surprised how fast the music we perform gets its fans all over the world. Soon after publishing our first video clip on YouTube we registered few thousands of plays from ore than 110 countries worldwide! That encourages us to follow the trend and ensures us we have chosen the right way to go.

We would like to express our thankfulness to all the people who support us any way, our friends and mates. If we would need to give any concrete names, we would probably state Marvin K. Black among the first ones, a man who is in charge of our PR affairs and we consider his support and consultancy in other fields to be really effective, too.
Nevertheless, first of all, we must express our gratefulness to our fans for loading us with the energy that drives us forward. Thank you!"

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
