Hey Harlow! So we are dying to hear about your New EP? Tell us more!
This is my first EP and it showcases the lighter side of me (Harlow). ‘Feeling Like Myself’ is the lead single. I was playing around with a deep future house hybrid sound at the time and this is what happened. Due to my split personality, my sound seems to sit in the middle of two genres. I wasn’t going for such a mainstream sound on this but when the vocalists added their parts it definitely became more commercially appealing. They did such a good job so I decided to keep them even though it was more commercial sounding then I had intended.
What would the (Artist/DJ/Producer) Autobiography be called?
Cult To Rave
What single night out has been the most memorable for you as a DJ/Producer?
I recently just saw Damien Lazarus play for Storytellers Ibiza in Tulum, Mexico and it totally inspired me to take more risks as a producer and to delve deeper into what kind of story I want to tell with my performances and music.
What advice would you give to aspiring artists & up-coming producers?
Be original, take risks, and work on your craft every day, even if it’s just for an hour. Make it a habit.
What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you listen to it?
What festivals would you be most interested and pumped to perform at?
Dirty Bird Campout, Burning Man, Movement Detroit, Ultra, Tomorrowland, Comunite
Tell us about what best expresses you as an artist/DJ/Producer that is not visible in your production/music.
I feel like Harvey Dent, Dorian Grey and Daenery’s Targaryen are all fighting to be the dominant sound in my music. Having multiple personalities is a bitch sometimes, lol.
Tell us about who and what inspired/inspires you as a DJ/Producer and how you came to be?
I went to my first rave when I was 14 and Richie Hawtin was playing and I was blown away. I fell in love with the music and became obsessed with techno and the rave culture. My first job was at my uncles record store and DJ’s would come in because he had all the rare underground stuff that no one else had. I soon started Djing as a full time job so I had to learn to play a broad spectrum of genres to be able to pay the bills and I think this is how my split personality developed in regards to genres. I’m probably one of the few DJ/Producers who likes underground music as much as mainstream music. I have really eclectic taste in music.
My parents told me dinosaurs aren’t real, so I chose the T-Rex as my mascot. I’ve got two; Harlow the angel and Harvey the devil.
Some food for thought or a word of inspiration for all new and up-and-coming artists and producers out there? Give us some advice you wish you had received when you first ventured into the music industry?
In the wake of Avicii’s death, I can’t stress this enough: Take care of yourself. You need to put your health and mental well being first or you won’t make it. Being an artist is hard. Touring is hard. Don’t let anyone push you to far for money, it’s not worth it. You can’t tour and party your face off for long, it will destroy you fast. Eat healthy, stay active, meditate, do whatever it takes for you to feel grounded.
