Hey Ken, Great to hear from you. First off, how are you doing?
I am doing great. I have a lot of fun projects going on. And I just found out that I am eligible for a Grammy® awards nomination.
How did the idea to start your own label first come around?
I wanted to start a label that is clearly focusing on the Future Rave sound.
What genre of music can we expect to hear on your label?
Future Rave music, no pun intended.
Can we expect to see anybody coming up on your new label?
I have a few young and talented upcoming artists such as NK/LA, Yantosh & Ozen.
What gave you the inspiration to start your own label?
Apart from producing music I have always been an entrepreneur and run several different companies. And in this way, I can combine both my interests, producing music and running my own business.
How have you been keeping yourself busy?
Working on the details with the label has obviously taken a lot of time while at the same time producing my own music means I have no problem whatsoever keeping myself busy.
What do you think will set your label apart from the rest?
First of all, only releasing Future Rave music. Secondly focusing on a small number of releases so that we can focus on the artist, promotional activates and further developing the sound of the artist. Basically, prioritizing quality over quantity.
Do you have a specific theme or idea for your label?
Well, it should have been clear by now that the theme is Future Rave Music… 😉
Who would you like to see be signed onto your label?
Well, David Guetta & MORTEN would of course always be welcome to send me a demo, LOL.
Finally, where can people reach out to you about your label?
