Tell us a little about how you got started producing music. Who are some of your influences?

I started falling in love with DJs and electronic music from an early age. When I was 7 years old I saw a DJ battle show on television, and I was really impressed by what they did with those instruments that I didn’t even know what they were at the time. From there I developed an increasingly strong passion and interest. At the age of 14, I became a DJ and at the age of 20, I started studying (self-taught) to become a producer. In 2018 I started releasing music. I produce and play all kinds of EDM music, but I have an absolute preference for Progressive House music and Hardstyle. A source of inspiration has always been the Swedish House Mafia, and individually Axwell.

Do you have more projects on the way, if so when can we expect them?

I have many plans for the future and the present. I’m closing some deals for releases with big international labels, but I will update you in due course. I can confirm for now that one of my Progressive House tracks is expected to be released shortly with the BlancoyNegro label. I also started a stable collaboration with FoRmAT_G (Giorgio Scuticchio) an Italian producer like me, who expects great things.

If you could collaborate with any artist or producer in the world, whom would it be and why?

If I could fulfill the dream of collaborating with an artist of my choice, it would surely be Axwell. In my Progressive & House productions, I always try to be inspired by him. He’s like a God to me, a God of House music. For me, He is on another level than all other Producers and DJs. Hearing him play live is something unique. Indescribable. Fantastic.

This is a question we love asking. Please tell us something about you that your fans don’t know. Surprise us

Oh, good question. What my fans probably don’t know is that behind each of my productions, there is a story linked to my personal feelings and emotions experienced in that period during the production. I am influenced a lot by my mood and feelings, often conditioned by my relationship with Agata (my girlfriend). My productions are always inspired by her and our moments. In fact, many titles of my productions refer to a feeling, an emotion, felt during the production period of the track. She is my source of inspiration too, even if she doesn’t want me to be a DJ & Producer
