How did you get into making music?
Music was always a common thread in my life. I grew up with a lot of music around me. I remember playing Crash Bandicoot while listening to Busta Rhymes, Mystikal and Missy Elliot. I really loved listening to it, I never had any thoughts of making music or doing something in music. At a young age I started breakdancing and C-walking. From the age of 18 I took my dancing to another level and started deejaying at the age of 25. A few years after I started deejaying I downloaded FL studio and started to play around, trying different things. As I struggled a lot, I contacted producers friends for feedback and tips.
How would you define your sound?
To be honest I don’t have the right way to describe my sound yet, that’s also one of the reasons that I’m not dropping any original things yet. I like to experiment with different sounds. Mostly with afro influences. Also when deejaying. I just love things that gets the people grooving. Whether it’s with Baile, Amapiano, UKG or Funk.
How would you describe your creative process when it comes to making tracks?
Most of the time I get random ideas when chilling somewhere with friends or doing something that has nothing to do with music. If I happen to be home at that moment I just jump behind my laptop and start something.
Which artist or sound influences you the most in your work as a creative?
Nowadays I get the most of my influences of artists like Juls, Sango, Deekapz, Vigro Deep, Omar S.
Which artist would you like to collaborate with in the future?
I hope to collab one day with FS Green, Tera Kora, Juls or Ogranya
