Q1. Please talk to us about your latest release and the inspiration behind it.
My latest release ‘Emerge’ was an EP made with my brother from another mother K.A.L.I.L.. When we started the track ‘emerge’ we had an idea of an arpeggio we had heard on a movie soundtrack, on which we worked on, note by note, until it became the track’s main synth as you hear it today. The rest of the track fell in place pretty easily after that as the main synth-line was mostly responsible for the tension and build-ups.
Q2. What is your New Year’s resolution?
Making more music and making a difference.
Q3. Please pick 1 or 2 must plays from your recent sets and explain why they're so good?
Thomas Schumacher & Victor Ruiz - Wonder
- I love this track, it is just such a great tool but also such an amazingly musical track at the same time. Always rocks people’s pants off!
Alex Stein - Blackbird
- This track means a lot to me as it still, to this day, is the most recognised track I’ve made. It’s always such a pleasure to drop this track and have everybody recognise it and smile. It makes me so happy!
Q4. How do you learn to create tracks and the production process itself?
Mostly by myself. I have a degree in Audio Engineering, but making music and creating beats was something I learned by myself and with friends, over the years, making music on a daily basis. You try new things and it’s a wonderful process, specially if you keep pushing yourself outside your comfort zone.
Q5. Please leave a message for your fans in Japan.
Japan has been on my list for many years now as I am a big fan of the Japanese Car Culture and cuisine and I wish I can come play for my Japanese fans as soon as possible to be able to get to know Japan and its people!
