WWD: What was your first musical interaction as a child, do you remember?
Well, I certainly remember as a child I was always attracted to what my parents listened to… and on this I can say I was lucky to grow up with musical influences such as Dire Straits, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Pink Floyd.
WWD: Who are the artists that have inspired the music that you make today do you think?
After a long year of work in the studio which gave rise to ‘Interstellar” and ‘Refraction’ I paid close attention to the DJ sets of Adriatique, Mathame, Tale of Us, Mind Against and tried to create a fusion to obtain a different product but still with influences from these artists.
WWD: What was your first record you actually released?
My first release was on liebe detail with ‘Heaven EP’… a 5 track ep that I didn’t imagine would have a strong response from many artists of many different gender in fact the EP was almost all electronic music.
WWD: Talk us through about release on Radikon & Siamese.
I remember that after I made ‘Interstellar’ in the studio which was released on the Radikon label, I sent the album to Mathame. And after about 30 minutes they told me that they would play the tracks. In fact, it was played immediately at the exit festival… and in any case, seeing the reaction of the public, I was very happy… then I sent the album to Jonas Saalbach for his label Radikon and I received a nice feedback to mark it on his label… then in the last period I received a message from Adriatique if I had music for them… I immediately sent them some new tracks which they were struck by ‘Refraction’
And as soon as I saw that they started playing it around… I asked if it could go on Siamese… and then I received the positive outcome from Adriatique for Siamese which is one of my favorite labels.
WWD: What are your goals for 2024?
Definitely working hard in the studio and starting to play around the world again. Create at least two EPs… which I hope to continue on Siamese and other labels that I’m currently in contact with but for good luck I prefer not to say the names
