We are delighted to bring you this week’s Imminent Radioshow guest, and who better than MIDIKLØRYAN to help closing this month of August?
We, of course, took the oportunity to ask them some questions in order to have you know a little bit about them!
How was your start as an artist?
Sérgio: I’ve been interested in DJing and Producing since I was 12/13 years old. I bought my first DJ controller at 15, and started learning production on my own until 2014. When I finally released my first track, I was 18 years old.
It was released through Muzenga Records, on a compilation called “Brazil Generation Volume 1”.
I signed with my first alias, “Loopertherium” and I got a few releases under that name, mostly Deep House and Tech House tracks. That was my start as an artist.
Alexandre: I started as an artist with MIDIKLØRYAN, trying to learn with Sérgio.
I gave him the idea of making this project because I always had the dream of being an electronic music artist, and that became possible with this project.
Who’s your biggest inspiration?
Sérgio: I have a lot of huge inspirations, from a huge variety of genres, but on the Future House scene I would say Tchami, because he invented “Future House”, and he is also one of my favorite artists, and David Souza, because his tracks are also part of what made me so interested on Future House in the first place. Both are artists I really look up to.
But one of my biggest inspirations as well is the portuguese community of producers, we have a lot of quality producers that really inspire me, such as Falco, Dr. Ushuu, Kanzo, Strybo, Khamix and many more, on several genres.
Alexandre: My biggest inspiration is Swedish House Mafia, always loved not only their music, but their shows and visuals and the way they impacted Dance Music.
Which obstacles have you faced along the way and how did you surpass them?
Alexandre: The biggest obstacle we faced was getting gigs. How did we surpass that obstacle? By being persistent, and creating an identity on our sets.
Sérgio: Agreed. Also it can be difficult to get signed on record labels and get your tracks played or listened to by big artists, and my advice is to also be persistent on that. To have a music career is a lot about being persistent and creating an identity.
It may seem cliché, but it is how the good results are achieved.
And featuring unbelievable tracks by Ninja Kore, Reden, Kura, and previous guests of ours Ben Ambergen and Deepblue, aswell as their own productions, this one will have you bouncing! So rejoice to the sound of Midikloryan, right here, on our Imminent Radioshow!
