When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
Music was always important for me, I did painting and art for over 10 years now and the music I was listening to always enhanced what was important in every context at every stage of the projects I’ve been working on, I have noticed at the very beginning how music facilitated the decision making somehow subconsciously and subversive, I was hooked then, and always wanted to make music myself, so I made this possible recently and it feels really special to have a good response, I am really proud!
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I have been listening to all sorts of music, been loving the pop hits as a kid than I’ve been into rock/punk as a teenager than there was a hip-hop/rap influence, sort of everywhere and I followed also, but I bumped into some good electronic music along the way somehow and it felt very special, it sounds very abstract to me and is subverting the idea of having a message in a very in an obedient way, and I liked it, dance/electronica sounds allow a lot of depiction and apparently less story-telling.
But this way the personal experience becomes of primary importance, and the music blends with feelings and memories so the message and story-telling are kinds of self- generated and it feels strong, personal in different ways for every individual. I always listen to people like Pete Tong, Nicholas Jaar, DJ Krush, Solomun, Ricardo Villalobos, they are the main references for me and started to make some alt. electronica witch only makes sense I guess.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
I recently released my first album, and the music grew organically from a single sound or a couple of bits, It felt good and wanted to enhance so many aspects, so the best way was to allow the process of making music to lead than step back and later revisit the song and twist, turn and enhance what seems important and somehow there is a biographical aspect to it and I allow it there because it could be generalized or depersonalized, this also allows a beautiful experience and a beautiful play.
What are your plans for the near future?
People know, I will be around with some good images and some good sound will publish new stuff very soon!
