- Tell us about that first track that put you on the map in the electronic scene and the journey since. How did you get started?
My biggest track to date would have to be ‘Human Accaptance’ which was released two years ago and got picked up by the dons Tchami and Malaa who heavily supported it throughout their ‘No Redemption’ Tour sets in 2018. That was such a huge support for me to get my music out to a more worldwide audience. As for my journey, I first got into deejaying about 10 years ago, which is a huge passion for me and then I progressed to delve into the world of production a few years later.
- Tell us about your latest project ‘Conquer’ EP?
Yes so it’s a three track EP and my approach with it was to bring a more melodic element and hook combined with big driving basslines. My style focuses a lot around a big drop, so I definitely wanted to stay true to that. The genres that generally inspire me at the moment are Brazillian bass, psy-trance, techno and house, so I do try to infuse those in my productions.
- What single night out has been the most memorable for you as a DJ and producer?
Hard to pick but my most memorable and fun sets are always at an event I play here regularly called Deeper Than House. It’s been a huge platform for me to showcase my style locally, the crowds that come are amazing and it’s always such a good time.
- Tell us something we wouldn’t normally find out about you.
I have an interest in knowledge around spirituality, the human mind and personal development. And I show that side to me a bit more through my latest EP ‘Conquer’ through the vocal samples I’ve used which speak about conquering your mind, mastering your destiny and looking beyond your limits.
- Give us the name of one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you listen to it?
Oh Gosh, there is a few but the first that just stood out in my mind is Delerium – Silence – what a classic!
- Dream collaboration and why?
I’d say Matroda, that guy is such a gun! He’s productions are insane and I feel like I could learn a lot from him.
- If you could play any festival, which would it be?
Tomorrowland for sure!
- How do you get a track started? Tell us a bit about your production process. How long does it take you to complete a track on average and do you ever get writer’s block?
I just start messing around until an idea forms, so once I’ve got the melody then I progress to making the rest of the track. Sometimes ideas do pop up in my head that I record on my phone but I’ve hardly used those ideas to date, most of my tracks came about from messing around. As for the time, it depends, generally once I’ve got the idea and I’m in flow it can be pretty quick like a few hours, but the finer details, as well as mixing the track takes me much longer! I do get writer’s block, not so much on ideas and getting the main parts of the songs down but connecting it all and making it into a full blown track, I do get stuck on.
- Latest track / EP? What are you working on currently? Tell us more!
I’ve got a few singles in the pipeline that I’m wrapping up at the moment, guess you will just have to wait and see!
- The relationship between the audience and the DJ is crucial, and yet it seems to be a fragile one – how do you see the balance between giving the crowd what they want and treating them to something new?
I think mash ups and remixes or throwing over an acapella of more popular songs work a treat with that. These days I’m lucky where I play I get to be myself and play true to what I want and get the crowds who dig it!
