and many more! At just 23, he’s showing real promise and we can’t wait to see what he continues to
achieve within the realms of the music industry!
Where are you from? I’m from Stuttgart which is located in Germany. This is actually the city where Mercedes and Porsche come from!
When did you start making music? I started making music at the age of 16. So that’s 8 years ago.
How do you describe your music? I would describe my music as a crossover between electronic music and pop music. The actual song is super important for me
Favorite moment from your career?
Definitely when I opened the Mainstage for the World Club Dome (The Winter Edition) in Duesseldorf last year! The stage was built in a football stadium which was absolutely massive!
Who is your biggest musical inspiration? I think my biggest musical inspiration right now is the Chainsmokers! Not only the particular way of writing their songs but also the fact that they put together different kinds of genres whilst still keeping their signature sound!
What is your producing software? I produce in Logic X. Huge fan of this DAW
What other things do you do besides making music? I absolutely love cooking! I’m a big fan of any sort of cooking channel videos on YouTube and really enjoy recreating those receipts at home.
What is your best-producing tip?
Keep it simple and try to not use too many different elements in your tracks. Try to work with as little as possible elements and make sure every element gets its own space in the mix.
What is your favorite track of all time? Tough question but I’d say I go with „Closer“ by the Chainsmokers.
Why did you start making music? I actually saw videos of Tiesto performing in front of thousands of people in huge stadiums all around the world. At that time it was crazy to me that a DJ can fascinate such a big audience. That’s when I realized I wanted to create my own kind of music too and reach as many people as possible.
What are your upcoming gigs? I’ll be playing some huge festival shows here in Germany including the World Club Dome and the New Horizons Festival. Can’t wait to see you all there!
What are your goals for the future?
I definitely want to release more of my music! This past year I worked on so many remixes and I definitely want to get back on releasing more of my own kind of original music! There’s so much new music coming which I’m really excited about.
What advice can you give for the young music producers/DJs? Try to work on all different kinds of music styles first and see what you feel most comfortable with and what excites you the most. Then stick with it and always be open to new styles and genres.
Please write a message to your fans: Thank you guys for always supporting my music! As I said, there’s so much new music coming up which I can’t wait to show you all.
