Q: What got you into music and made you realize that it was your chosen path?
A: I have always loved music, composing it, performing and listening to it. I started off as a bassist in rock and metal bands, making waves in the local music scene and trying to find my own style. Some years ago I was introduced into Music Production, where I find myself experimenting with many different genres and sounds. Producing allows me to fully express myself and push the limits of the songs I perform.
Q: Tell us about your new music (Song/EP/Mixtape/Album)? And what’s the story behind it?
A: I’m promoting a new EP mixing house and techno sounds. Their common ground is the technical aspect of bass sound design. The listeners perceive this with an urban sense and festive feel. Inviting conversation and dance.
Q: What makes your music unique? How would you describe it? (genres/sub-genres)
A: I really work on Sound Design and Synthesis. The way the bass expands on harmonics giving a sense of percussion and covering a lot of space in the track. Being genre-agnostic, I can work on different types of track (house, deep house, techo, electronica) while focusing on the sound design, I arrange different elements to bring a sensation to life.
Q: How long have you been in the music industry?
A: I have worked in the music industry releasing different albums and singles for the past four years. I’ve dedicated fifteen years of my life to performing music.
Q: Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of? (awards, projects or public performances etc.
A: The moment where I learnt enough elements to feel like “I really can do this!” and dedicate my life to making music.
Q: What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?
A: Make a lot of music, and mix much more!
