"In this set I combined a lot of my favorite recent tracks as well as some older ones that I like to play if they fit in a set. Overall this is one of the darker sounding sets of mine but with the intention to make you feel the energy of each track and transfer your mind to the dance floor."
"I think that I most likely get into a creative state when I’m not in the studio while being on the move. To capture these ideas I really love to make voice memos, sing melody fragments in my phone or write down lyrics that come to my mind. Later I transfer these ideas to my work in the studio."
"In the past I drew my inspiration from night outs with friends and hearing electronic music. Nowadays my inspiration is drawn from the current political situation, environmental changes and my overall struggle with a lot of injustices that happen in this world and really concern me."
"The freedom to express your feelings and the things you have on your mind through music."
"Difficult question. I feel like it is currently getting harder and harder to not get distracted and focus on certain things. I must admit that I am not very good at not getting easily distracted but in the studio I always try to put away my phone, avoid all social networks and close everything on my Mac that is currently not needed while producing music."
"Yes I do. A generous breakfast and a big pot of coffee are my keys to success to start on a good and productive day."
"In the past, my music didn't necessarily have the intention to express an overall opinion or feeling, but rather was a snapshot of certain ideas that I developed in the studio. In the future I want to concentrate more on a certain message I would like to pass on to the listener. Through lyrics and the music itself."
"What happened to the guy listening to Metal Core :D"
"I think the artists that come with a new mindset and try to create something that hasn’t been there before have most likely the chance to give a new direction to the scene. I think it is more important to focus on one's own sound than following trends that exist for a short period of time and become obsolete after more and more producers copy it."
"Currently I’m a very big fan of the release „The Affair“ by Joone and Victor C. Really love the vibe and the vocals of this track. Always puts me in a good mood."
"I’m currently working on an EP that draws its inspiration from the current changes that will affect our future like the climate crisis. It will be a mix of different genres, instruments and a lot more experimental than my past releases."
