What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music for me is a form of expression, just like you have with drawing or painting stuff. To me it doesn't matter how you make music, as long as you can touch even one person with what you made that's what keeps me going.

What is your music dream?

To be get my tracks featured on the radio maybe, and get a little cult following with my music.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

With a snap of the finger, I would make peace. Stop everybody from fighting.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

"Harder, better, faster, stronger" by Daft Punk

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Daft Punk, Madeon, Calvin Harris, just generally big names in the Dance scene. Zedd also.

What inspires you to make music?

Just the urge to express myself. I can't stop making music. Not just yet.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Not a real message, I just want people to appreciate what I make.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Excited! I don't do it that often, so mostly it's kind off a big deal.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

I think it is really hard when you don't have an actual team and you have to do everything by yourself. But I also say that it's the love for the music that counts, so "making it" isn't an absolute priority...

What do you think of Drooble?

I love it, actually, still getting to know it though.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Not getting my music spread far enough, and also having a little envy with people who don't sound artistically satisfying to me and "make it" big time. Just cannot understand that "easy" music like that is so populair when you have really good electronic dance music out there.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes, I go a lot to party's where fellow deejays spin the records. Especially when my brother turns tables.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Being true to yourself and a desire to make the best out of their music, keeping an eye on high production value.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Pomrad, Oddword. That's from the top of my head. Pormad is a Belgium artist that is very Jazz inspired, and Oddword is an Electro-House thing.
