Exclusive Interview with Nicson
Out Now Magazine
Where are you from?
I am half Greek, half Belgian. My mother is Belgian and my dad Greek. I was born in Athens, Greece in April 1992 but after one year my parents decided to go back to Belgium, due to the economy. Now I live 26 years in Belgium, Ghent.
When did you start making music?
I started making music back in 2014 when I discovered Fl Studio, I didn't know how to start making a pattern, or how to work with the piano roll. But after watching a lot of tutorials I was moving forward and released my first single in summer 2017 "Easy Come".
How do you describe your music?
My music always needs to begin a little bit emotional and builds up to a tight energetic drop.
Favorite moment from your career?
After meeting Wildvibes, who lives 2 minutes from me, he learned me how to mix my music better, how to compose better. I really look up to him. He is one of the few producers I know who is so sympathetic to take time for someone. Since then my music got better and I released 3 tracks on a label, the rest I release myself.
Soon i will release a track with Brieuc and Britt Lari. This one will be one of my biggest prouds!
Who is your biggest musical inspiration?
Dimitri Vegas And Like Mike. They are my idols. I have a huge Instagram fan page and have contact with
Dimitri. When they gave their first "Bringing The Madness" edition in Sportpaleis, Antwerp, I wanted just
to be like them: Making Music and touring and party every day.
What is your producing software? I work with Fl Studio since the beginning.
What other things do you do besides making music?
I work in a chemical company, Amcor Flexibles. I produce responsible packaging for food, beverage, pharmaceutical, medical, home- and personal care, and other products for around the globe. I work in 7 days shifts. In my free time, I try to make a lot of time for my friends and producing.
What is your best-producing tip?
Never give up and keep your feet on the ground!
What is your favorite track of all time? Martin Garrix - Scared To Be Lonely
Why did you start making music?
With music you can express yourself, I want people to feel what I feel with my music. I just want people to
enjoy my music. Nothing more, nothing less.
What are your upcoming gigs?
None for the moment. Because of my work, it is very hard to go spinnin' somewhere. But thinking about
to make more time for it next year!
What are your goals for the future?
Collabing with big names.
What advice can you give for the young music producers/DJs?
Write what you feel, and don't be afraid of asking for help from other producers!
Please write a message to your fans:
Thank you for all the support I have received from all of you so far. Without you, I never reached it so far!
Love you 3000!
