Which albums changed your perspective on the music you make?
Most recently the new Swedish House Mafia album Paradise Again really pushed the boundaries of Dance Music for me. It sounds so tasty and there is so much love in every detail. It’s just inspiring. Other than that Calvin Haris – 18 Month was a big influence on me when it came out. And Daft Punk – Discovery, definitely was a big eye-opener when it comes to Dance Music. I absolutely love all the French House that came out in that period of time.
What is your go-to method for when you need to boost your creativity?
Input = output to me. Meaning, listening to and enjoying music will always inspire me and make me wanna make music myself. On the other hand, sometimes it’s just necessary to take some time off. Go out for a hike or meet some friends. Conversations really inspire my lyrics and I get a lot of energy from other people.
Describe what makes your day a successful one.
I think I’m the most satisfied if I manage to enjoy
Describe your studio space in three words
Playground, Cozy, Fun
What do you think is the recipe for a great song?
Uhh yeah, difficult question. Good melodies and lyrics definitely are the basis, but then everything also has to have a great vibe and emotion and most importantly everything works together as one.
Did you always see yourself pursuing music as a career, or did you have other plans for the future?
What advice can you give to artists that are struggling to make their name known?
Patience and Persistence. I think a lot of people give up too early or start to doubt themselves. Everything takes a lot of time and hard work. Luck can help and speed it up, but in the end, it all comes down to time and work.
What are the biggest challenges you have discovered thus far as a musician/producer?
Obviously, there are moments when you struggle creatively, question what you are doing or when you doubt your talents and skills. The biggest challenge is to look forward to those moments and keep going!
What can we expect from you in the months to come?
My debut album ‘Cutting Through Noise’ is finally coming out in December and I am super excited to share all the music on there. It’s a fun variety of different dance songs I have written in the past year. So you can expect a lot of new music 🙂 And right now I am working on new music for my live shows, so hopefully you can catch me at one of my shows in the coming months and we can dance together in a club or festival!
