“How was your start as an artist?”
“It all started as pure fun and enjoying music overall. Slowly I began to learn some things all by myself and after some time I started to go to a studio here in my city every week and practicing with the CDJ and trying to become better. From there opportunities appeared organicaly and I began playing in high school parties, which also helped me developed my skill set and gain some recognition around my city. In regards to my production skills, it is a long journey, that’s still developping, but mainly, i learned through tutorials on the Internet and I know that it’s still a learning process.”
“Who’s your biggest inspiration?”
“My biggest music inspirations differ from people like Erick Morillo all the way to Swedish House Mafia, the ones who I consider to be legends regarding dance music. They were the ones who brought me here and made me feel electronic music the best way possible.”
“Which obstacles have you faced along the way and how did you surpass them?”
“Me and every other artist in existence, follow their own individual path to achieve success. We go through our own highs and lows. We have to learn to adapt. That is essential for a healthy career. Being able to accept the art of rejection and to learn how to deal with criticism is also a key factor. We also have to be reasonable and accept that we won’t please everyone with our kind of music. Sometimes I dont feel motivated enough but I quickly try to think on positive vibes so my energy can rise again. We have to keep working on the things we love and eventually the results will knock on our doors.”
