When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
I realized that I wanted to be a DJ and a music producer when I was 18. I was hospitalized in intensive care for 20 days and I was supposed to die every day. When I got out, I was suffering from PTSD and music was the only way I could really connect to everything, anything.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I really like Vini Vici or Ajja, but I also like EDM artists like Martin Garrix, Tiesto, David Guetta so I guess my music is kind of a mix of all these inspiring artists!
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
I’ve been doing a lot of different styles over the years. I actually started with psytrance, but it was too hard at this time so I tried other genres. After a few years of hard work, I came back to psytrance and here I am!
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
The greatest challenge in music is to promote your songs… Some people use bots and fake promo but this will get you nowhere, and you’ll be flagged on streaming platforms so your song will never get noticed by the algorithms. So the challenge is finding real marketing strategies and pay the right people that will do honest promotion, or do everything yourself.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
I really don’t think I’m the best, only fans can be the judges of that! I do hope one day one of my songs will get in the top 100 billboard charts! But I think even then, I’ll keep working to make even better music. I’m not really looking to be the best…, I honestly just hope that my music will bring positive vibes to people that listen to it. That’s all.
What are your plans for the near future?
My plan for the near future is to survive the COVID pandemic.
I’m releasing a track on Brutish Heavy Music on the 8th of May so that’s something I look forward to!
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
I am extremely grateful to my mentor Daisaku IKEDA who has guided, and will continue to guide me through the rest of my life with his Buddhist teachings! I would not be here without his precious encouragement and the chanting of Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.
How can fans find you?
You can find me on Facebook and Instagram (that’s where I’m the most active) and you can also find information on my website. You can listen to my music on most streaming platforms. Some of my remixes will only be on YouTube/SoundCloud.
What suggestions do you have for other artist like yourself?
Keep chasing the dream! You have to work, work more, work harder, work again. Hard work is the only way to achieve anything in life, and it’s especially true in the music industry.
