Shaman Records presents:
Could you please tell us how you passion for this kind of music was born?
From a young age, I always remember listening to music. In particular, when in the 90s the techno music started evolving, it was introduced to me in parties and there was always that magic feeling that this music would make me feel I am travelling. That feeling evolved into an experimentation of wanting to see the depths of it and quite quickly I realised that this rhythm helps me express my feelings better than anything else. It might be the freedom that it provides me! Since my first rave party in the mid 90s, my passion for electronic music never stopped.
There are any artists you take inspiration from? Do you remember the moment when you realised you wanted to become a dj?
In general speak yes, I tend to diversify my stimulus, from European upcoming young people, to mature DJs, to Asian to African. The depth of feelings in every artist is different and as a whole I tend to find that my ears fixate to whichever rhythm sounds nice. Not necessarily to a particular artist. If I had to choose however, I would pick one for example Jeff Mills, since his proven track records have been so impactful over the years.
I cannot say that I was born in a family of 2 DJ and my cradle was a turntable. On the contrary, I picked up that being a DJ was something I drew happiness from when I was 20 something. It felt like that holding discs and spinning turntables had its own charm, and I fell for it.
What are your future projects? Do you have any scheduled releases?
I am conscious that during the pandemic outbreak there are only so few chances for the artists to perform.. I am thinking of utilizing the time to expand my studio, buying some new synths, maybe a drum machine too, as my urge is always to discover new melodies, to create new vibes, touching a variety of electronic sounds, from popular to deeper ones.
I have a release on January, with 2 beloved tracks of mine. Percussions are in the center of the vibe.
Can you recommend us some artists that you really like now a days?
I must admit there are numerous artists out there that I just can't stop talking about. I find Josh Wink very strong on this aspect, his performances and his tracks always giving me a nice spacey feeling.
What would you say to young artist that wants to be part of this world? What would your advice be?
Being a DJ demands attention to detail, dedication and a quality of work. If you have passion for excellence and want to deliver a result that will make people smile every time they listen to, then this is for them. I would say I can't recommend it enough but it would sound as a cliche, despite being the truth! So, yes, definitely something that young people can get their hands on and excel at.
Could you give to our readers some advices concerning production?
As a producer and an artist you have to dare, you have to be innovative, you have to be able to express your inner world with the most simple and truthful way, without concerning about the consequences of the revelation of your own self. So try not to imitate, just be authentic.
Additionally, it is a quick way to perfection to try finishing your projects as a producer.
