Mika took his first interview to Guitar Player Brazil.
Guitar Player: Your biggest influence is obviously Slash. Describe when you first saw him playing, as a teenager, The Guitar Hero from Guns N' Roses.
Mika Jaxx: One important thing, Kurt Cobain was the one I was inspired to. When I was 14 years I was walkin thru a dvd store and saw Slash playing a Tokio Dome in 93, I was freeze, It took my attention for hours, Thet moment was important to realize that he was my new influence for years then. I used to hear grunge and hard rock at time.
Guitar Player: How is Sioux 66 going? Anf the times of trouble for Rock N' Roll?
Mika Jaxx: My work with Sioux 66 is great, last year after we signed with Sony Music Entretaiment Brazil and put out 'Caos' (2016) , our second studio album, we were invited to open an Aerosmith gig in São Pauloas special guest at Aero-Vederci Baby tour. For more than 45.000 people! two months later we also opened to Papa Roach as special guest, both shows with a positive response from the band, crowd and magazines. we just shot a video clip to 'Pra Sempre'. Rock N' Roll has it's ups and downs since 1950 'til today. The golden era was between 80's and 90's. Music is keep on changing, from the cd's to internet and music apps. Rock is not the main thing in Brazil. that's why we were suvivers.
Guitar Player: Upon Slash, your solo album refer to others great guitar players from hard rock to classic rock.
Mika Jaxx: Slash alwaus been a guitar hero as Joe Perry was the 'Daddy'. I always used to listen grunge, pos-grunge, new metal and alternative music. I also like to hear whats going on with our guitar players in Brasil and your instrumental music. there go some names: Scotti Hill (Skid Row), Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) and Nuno Bittencourt (Extreme). I'm always looking for a new bands, Breaking Benjamin, Escape the Fate and Red, are my fav rith now.
Guitar Player: Where did it come your "pop" influence, as we can hear on "Beautiful"by Christina Aguilera and "Wild Ones" (Suede). how do you mix other music styles to your own music?
Mika Jaxx: I've always listeed to radios and watched MTV, Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Tears for Fears (this was the first album i've bought). The song '#Evee107' was inspired on 'The Wild Ones' (Suede) with other guitar colors and 'leads' instead of vocals since my new album 'Angel's Wings' (2017) is instrumental. Also 'Angel's Wings' was the first video released on April 2017.
Guitar Player: What is your guitar equipment? (Guitars, pedals and amps)
Mika Jaxx: Huge (laughts). I use to different pedalboards, one smaller with 3 or 4 pedals, basic to rehearsals and small gigs with a wah-wah (Morley), delay (DD-3) and a volume booster for guitar leads, the other one is a bigger pedalboard for recordings and bigger gigs with a analog chorus (Electro Harmonix), whammy (Digitech), fuzz boxes (Octavie e Fuzz Factory) and talk boxes (Dunlop), Amplifiers I prefer Marshall, Engle e Disel, Gibson Les Paul guitars, Paul Reed Smith and Gretsch (White Falcon) as my favorites. I use half step down 0.11's strings (Ernie Ball). When I'm recording an album I use to bring all my stuff and try on the studio's equipment.
Guitar Player: You're about to release a new project, with Cadu Pelegrini, from Kiara Rocks. Could you tell us something about it?
Mika Jaxx: This band is called 'React'. Lyrics are in english, we decided to put together musiscians from Kiara, Salário Mínimo and Furia Inc. In order to have a SUPER band. Experimental, desconstructed, genuine. This is 'React'! We are now working on a first single called 'Dawn of Hate' will be out on 09/09/17 shot in 360º Experience 4K cameras.
