Listen to ‘Remember Me’ Feat. Amy Kirkpatrick on Spotify!
- Tell us about that first track that put you on the map in the electronic
scene, and the journey since.
There are so many releases to be honest. I wouldn’t say there is aparticular track. To be honest a lot of songs I wrote in the past otherDJ’s released and I’m just starting to come out of my shell. A sleeper youwould say haha
- Who would you love to collab with?
Hmm… I’ve always wanted to collaborate with Zedd, I love his approach tomusic and how he looks at music collectively.
- Tell us about your latest track?
I actually wrote “Remember Me” in 2014 and released a version of it undermy previous alias “Soulless Sun”. Amy and I worked very hard on the songand it was kind of a flop. I’m very glad we decided to continue working onit as it’s now seeing success.
- What are your Hobbies or Interests besides Music?
I grew up playing a lot of basketball so we run a LFTD MUSIC GROUP men’sleague team. A way to stay fit and have fun with the guys. Also the wifeand I enjoy playing dodgeball when we’re not working on the LFTD businessplans.
- What one track never gets old for you no matter how many times you
listen to it?
“David Guetta feat Kelly Rowland – When Love Takes Over” or “Eric Prydz -So Much Love”
- What have you got coming up in your event calendar this year that you
are most excited about?
I hope to release my album this year. It’s finished, but just needs some afew tweaks. To be honest i’m nervous about it as it’s my first album and Iwant it to make an impact. I’m excited to have done a collaboration withMichaela Baranov. That girl is making some serious waves in the musicindustry.
- Tell us about your absolute favourite venue or event that you’ve played
at, and why it is so special to you?
I remember my good friend Judge hosting a Canada Day Festival locally andit was so spiritual. I had only been performing for 2 years at that time.Will never forget those that feeling of butterflies in my stomach.
- 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, do you
ever get writer’s block and which vocalist has been your favourite to work
My writing process is pretty simple. I usually start my songs with a kick,bass, or a vocal. The complicated part is that I used a bunch of programsmixed together to create a unique sound. Heck i’ve written entire tracks onmy Iphone. The experienced DJ/Producers understand me. There’s a lot oftechnical things to learn in the beginning, but once you have a certainnumber of years under belt you can think about the process morespiritually.
- What’s your spirit animal and why?
I’d say the fox. I like to think i’m clever haha.
“What single night out has been the most memorable for you as a DJ and
Producer and why?”
I think it was when I wrote a song called “Cyrus” with my previous alias.My friends and I all went to Vegas for EDC and instead of partying I endedup in my hotel room until 6am trying to finish the song. When I go back andlisten to it now you can tell it’s a novice producers track. But that’swhen I realized that I was in love with the process of making music and Iwanted to do it for a living.
