"Keep working on your sound make it unique, fresh and professional."



 

Were you a producer or a DJ first?

I was a producer first.

You come from Columbia. Is it possible to tell us how the EDM scene is at the moment in your country? Do you have many good clubs and great events that allow the space for young talent to come up?

The EDM scene is in a growth process right now, it is getting bigger. There are some clubs, maybe not the biggest ones, but there is room for new talent to show their skills.

What was the first step you took to make yourself heard as a DJ?

I started playing in small places and opening for DJs at clubs in Medellin, Colombia. Then as my career began to grow I started to play in bigger venues and further afield.

Have you attended any music school or workshops to learn how to produce EDM or you are 100% self-taught?

I learned a lot of it by myself, but I also learnt some techniques when I was studying sound engineering. It was there that I became more professional in my tracks.

I have controversial question, in your DJ sets how much of your own productions do you usually play?

I would say that 80% is my own music and the other 20% are mash-ups so it is very unique.

You are closely associated with Markus Schulz, his label Coldharbour recordings and his agency Schulz Music Group. Is it possible to tell which one of your tracks was the one that attracted Markus attention, and how did you feel when he asked you to sign your first track to his label?

The first track that I sent to Coldharbour was “Rainy in the Night”, and Markus loved it. From that point, any track that I sent him, he would play, which was fantastic. Then he asked me if I was interested in working with him and ever since my career changed.

What is one of the most memorable performances you’ve had and why?

Well I think it’s a tie at the moment between ASOT 600 in Den Bosch and Transmission—The Spiritual Gateway in Prague. Those gigs mean a lot for me because I've been following these events since I started and I’ve always really wanted to play there. So it was like a dream come true!

Did you move into DJing to play your own tracks?

Yeah, at the beginning when people started hearing my music they would ask me why I didn’t DJ and play my own music. From there I learned to be a DJ and I started playing, it was a success. That is more or less my history.

If you had to pick one DJ to collaborate with, who would it be?

I’m sure it would be with Duft Punk. They are my biggest inspiration. I really can’t explain the degree to which I admire them.

Do you currently have another daytime job as well, or are you 100% a music producer and DJ and make a leaving out of it?

Well, I do music full-time. I'm not only an Electronic music producer, I also do audio for TV, radio commercials, and I was a teacher at a music school too. I also made some music for short films.
