What got you into making music, specifically Electronic Dance Music?
I have always loved music since a young age, my Dad was in a band since I can remember, so music has always been around me, what got me into producing electronic Dance Music was when I went to cream to see Steve Angello play. I’ll never forget that night.
Who are some of your biggest musical inspirations?
I have a few artists who musically inspire me, they include Steve Angello, Eric Prydz, Axwell, Sebastian Ingress, Solomon, Dirty South, the list goes on and on…
Who are some artists you are listening to now?
I’m currently listening to a lot of progressive artists including David Pietras, Grum, Tim Mason and Cristoph.
Your new track ‘Back In Time' is out now on Steve Angello's SIZE records. This must be a huge honour/accomplishment. What does this single mean to you?
This single means a lot to me, it’s been a long long process and I think I started the track about 2/3 years ago. I’m super happy with everything about the track, and it really does mean a lot to me. I hope whoever listens can really hear the emotions, and feel the way I feel when listening to it. The track coming out on SIZE is a huge honour, and I couldn’t think of a better home for it.
