1. Why did you choose to become an artist?
“It was not a choice, I have always followed what I like. About 18 years ago I started to approach dance music and began to perform at friends’ parties, experimenting with various types of mixing. After some years I was more and more driven by curiosity and began to get in touch with various programs for musical creation. It has been such a long time, I have dedicated a large part of my life to music and production and now I can say that I'm satisfied with my artistic journey so far.”
2. Where do you get your inspiration from?
“I don’t have a precise method of working. I look for something that strikes me such as vocals, bass lines or a melody and I start building everything around it. I’m very picky and I try to create clean sounds perfect for mixing and sometimes it works. I believe my sound is very state-of-the-art and I hope that you will agree with me.”
3. What do you want to express with your music?
“Lately my sound is very dark and visionary. I always try to highlight the most particular nuances of my songs to create an emotion or a mood for people who listen to it. I don’t want to say anything else, as each person is free to feel their own emotions to the music and everyone is having a different interpretation of it.”
4. What do you love most about being an artist?
“As an artist, I can communicate emotions and moods through music. I think people understand what I want to express and I'm very interested in knowing what they think of me or my sound. I'm glad to receive compliments or be acclaimed by the dancefloor during a gig. The artist is always the center of attention in a party,
is one of the fundamental figures and has an important role.”
5. Most exciting club moment?
“The most exciting club moment is when people get excited during a break before the drop. Each person has a different reaction and recharge to start dancing again. I also really like the last song with lights on and all hands in the sky for the last greeting.”
6. Favorite track at the moment/ of all time?
“I've never had favorite record or reference song, I like to give space to new talents of the techno scene in my DJ sets, often unknown artists from the crowd. Certainly, there are unforgettable songs in the world dance scene and sometimes I like to insert them in my show. Especially some songs are very contemporary with a fresh sound, actual.”
7. Favorite DJ Setup?
“18 years ago, I started my career with turntables and a mixer but after a few years,
the technology changed the rules of the game with CDJs, USB sticks, computers etc.
Actually, I work with CDJs because all stuff that I get is only digital. I like this setup but is very simple and sometimes boring. As this is a necessity, I also like turntables, but I could not work with promo tracks, new songs and more.”
8. What makes you laugh?
“The current situation of the club culture, especially in Italy, makes me laugh. Unfortunately, the idea of quality has been lost over time, some famous people
use the ‘DJ’ technique to increase their popularity. We are talking about people without culture and technique who work in the clubs.
I don't like the nightlife at the moment but unfortunately the business and the money is most important thing and I don't see that changing any time soon.”
9. What do you listen to besides electronic music?
“I like the old indie rock, reggae and the Italian rap (90's). When I was a young boy, I listened artists like Oasis, Bob Marley and Neffa. They are big musicians that left a ridge in the history of music.”
