Tell us about your earliest musical memory?
It was when I went to my first electronic music festival.
At what point in your life did you have that moment where you said to yourself “This is it. This is the type of music I want to create?”
When I got discover myself across to the type of music that I liked. I discover my essence taking a little bit from each style.
Please list some of the most influential albums on your creative outlook and output:
Bonobo – Black Sands, Mano Le Tough – Trails, Dj Konze – Knock Knock
What key pieces of gear/software are you using to define your sound?
Depends on the time, but Juno 106 and some organic percussion elements.
What inspires you outside of music? What do you turn to when the creative well runs a little low?
I love to be in nature, practice sports and stay with my wife and family. But when the creative well runs, the first step is to pray to God and ask your help, the better way is connecting with God.
What is your opinion on the ever-spreading sub-genre vine? Are there too many? Do you think there’ s perhaps a sub-genre that doesn’t get the attention it deserves?
I believe in good music, it does not depend on a genre. But always will exist subgenres to denominate a type of work.
There are the main genres like house, techno, progressive, and all of type subgenres from these.
Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, what do you prefer?
I prefer studio work, do my music and later show it to the people, performing and interacting with them.
See the reaction of people is amazing and can share our own energy with them is amazing.
As a music artist, it becomes apparent that there is a huge difference between the art and the business. Is there anything about the music scene that you would personally change?
I would end up with closed groups and I believe that if we all help each other, we will have more space for everyone and more art known to other people around the world.
Any new or upcoming artists on your radar? Who shouldn’t the world sleep on?
Yes, always have. I like from Qubica, Jepe, Enzo Elia, Rancido, Aldebaran, Underspreche, Toto Chiavetta, Olderic, and the familiar Lehar and Musumeci.
From my country there is a new and good guy, he is Trommer.
What can we expect from you in the near future? Any upcoming projects or gigs in the pipeline that you would like to tell us about?
I have some new releases coming in big labels. What I can say is, stay tuned until the end of this year.
So much news coming. 😉
Famous last words?
Believe in yourself, with God you can do all things. Because to him, nothing is impossible.
