Tell us a little about how you got started producing music? Who are some of your influences and dream collabs?
So I started producing music at a very young age on my mom’s iPad. You properly know Garageband. That’s where it all started for me. I fell in love with the idea of putting different sounds together and making them sound good and experimenting this all the different keyboards Garageband had in its library. At this time I was only about 10 years old and this was at the time the first iPad also came out. I would sit hours on hours on that iPad and make music. Later on, I got my first computer for school in 6th grade, and that’s where it really started. I found out that there were programs for making music! I started with Logic Pro X, but later moved over to fl studio because I thought it was easier to use. I quickly learned the program and actually started making rap beats, because it was simple and easy to overcome. I also listened to a lot of rap at that time and was inspired a lot by basic rap artists like Future, Travis Scott, and Post Malone. Then I when to high school and found producers as Nick Mira and metroboomin. They inspired me even more because they made the beat behind all the rap songs I liked and I could relate more to them.I Denmark we have a crazy drinking culture in high school and that made me listen to a lot of house and EDM music. I tried to make EDM songs, but I thought I was so hard and complex and gave up many times trying to switch my genre from rap beats to EDM music. But I kept going because everyone in high school listened to house music at parties and that motivated me. I was hoping to one day get one of my songs played at these parties, but I simply couldn’t produce a good house song at that time
Tell us about your latest release ‘It’s My Life’, what was the inspiration behind this track?
Lots of youtube videos were watched, and that’s where I learned everything. I finally got a song produced that was good enough. The first thing I did was upload it to Soundcloud and played it at every party I went to. I still remember the first time a played my badly produced EDM song at a pre-party. Everyone started jumping and shouting. It was the best feeling. I got a lot of support, but people said I needed to practice more and I was agreeing with them and kept on watching youtube videos and practicing. At this time I was about 17 years and was inspired by Meduza, Avicii, Mike Williams, Tiesto, the danish artist Martin Jensen and many other EDM artists. I also remember watching an interview with Martin Garrix on youtube with his song Animals that inspired me too.
Covid19 has really impacted the world as we know it and we doubt things will ever be the same. How has the pandemic affected you as a producer and a performing artist? Would you say it has given you the opportunity to focus on production and getting new music out there?
Covid came and I was sitting inside all day and that meant that I had a lot of time to practice making house music to perfection. I still released remixes and started contacting other artists and asking to make official remixes. At this time it was under another artist’s name. Then out of nowhere, Mikkel came and said he wanted to go big. He is really good at motivating and told me that we are going to be big and that I was talented. We started sending beats to each other and then It’s My Life came. I said it was amazing and I wanted it on Spotify. We wanted a new name and Osmic was born. Mikkel has a lot of connections and hooked us up with a guy from universal music and he helped us with the final touches and then it was sent to mastering. Now that the song is out, we are making songs constantly, and our fans can expect many songs to come. We are not slowing down. We hope to one day collab with other big danish artists as Martin Jensen.
This is a question we love asking. Please tell us something about you that your fans don’t know. Surprise us
