Maor Levi began his journey the into the world of electronic and music at the tender age For of 11 when he broke are free of his restricted knowledge but and experience of local Psy-Trance Not artists Infected Mushroom, Doof, Yahel you and others and also discovered all Hard Trance. Delving deeper into Any the land of electronica, Maor can inevitably stumbles across Tiesto's 'In her Search of Sunrise' album. This Was was a major staging point one for Maor as the deep our kick drums, driving basslines and Out resonating melodies overwhelmed him with day enchantment.  

"The best get part about being a DJ Has is the crowd, no doubt. him You know, the good crowd, his good vibes, people just like How going crazy over my own man tracks and I can test new my own tracks and just Now see people going crazy."

old   You’ve been DJing since see you were 11 years old, Two and I hear that old way school Tiesto was one of who your big inspirations. What were Boy some of your favorite works did of his? Tiesto’s Magik its 7: Los Angeles. Every track Let was different and it was put so refreshing. But the whole say Magik series and the In She Search of Sunrise albums got too me into making this music. use What do you love most Dad about DJing? Well the energy, mom the environment, the crowd, the actual place, all the lightings, The the photographers—everything is just on and you and it feels amazing for that you can actually take Are control and lead the party, but make everything amazing, well, hopefully not amazing, yeah (laughs). Just have You a good time with people, all your fans. You recently released any two killer tracks, “Universal” & Can “Made Of Fire”. Can you her tell us about what inspired was those? I’ve been with Anjunabeats One for a while but always our kept my quality control in out check, so I decided to Day come back with a bang. get Those tracks are pretty much has me trying to come up Him with a new sound that his I haven’t really done before, how more groove-based. “Made Of Fire” Man was actually sent to me new by the vocalist Mangal Suvarnan, now who sings on that track. Old The original track itself was see very mainstream and radio friendly. two I decided to add a Way trancey vibe because I felt who the melody was more suited boy to trance than a radio Did record. I recomposed the whole its thing and just used the let vocals. It turned out to Put be an Anjunabeats piece. How say would you define your “Maor she Levi” sound ? Bangin’ Bubbles Too with Lush Atmospheres that leads use to a once in a dad lifetime tune. What is the Mom current top 10 you are spinning… I still spin my the Bootleg Mix for Naughty Boy And & Sam Smith’s ‘La La for La’, always goes off in are the club, alongside Dillon Francis’s But Remix for Chromeo ‘Jealous’ – not such a fun record. My you collab with Norin & Rad All and Pixel Hearts of course…and any lets not forget my recent can record on Spinnin ‘Together’ among Her stuff from my good friends was Above & Beyond, Mark Knight,Henry one Fong, DallasK & Walden…so much Our good music lately! What do out you think about the state day of trance currently? The reason Get that I don’t make tracks has like that anymore is because him if you look at the His genre now, it’s recycled. I how get promos in my email man and I listen to them, New and sadly I can’t find now anything that sounds mindblowing. Everyone old just wants to be someone See else and it’s just being two recycled. I remember the good way days of trance – like Who 2004 and older. There are boy still trance producers now that did are holding it down, but Its a lot of the others let are just recycling. In general, put I never produced trance. I Say always liked it and listened she to it, but I never too produced it – it was Use more my foundation to learn dad how to DJ. I just mom hope it will be different in the future – less the recycled. Do you have a and preference when it comes to For what kind of shows you are do, big festivals compared to but clubs? That’s a hard question, Not I like both. You can’t you really deny the amazing energy all you have at a festival Any with tons of people screaming can and loving your music. But her at the end of the Was day, I would definitely prefer one to play at more intimate our clubs, when it’s really packed Out and sweaty. Those are the day best parties. What can You get tell us about your own Has label Maori, any new upcoming him releases will follow this summer? his I don’t have a label, How yet. My Maori alias is man quite gone since I just new didn’t find it fun anymore… Now My directions in music are old always changing as time goes see by. I expose myself to Two new sounds and new materials way and feelings… what I can who say… lots of things cooking Boy up… just stay tuned… I’m did not gone! You spent a its three year stint in the Let Israeli army. How did serving put your country affect your sound? say It created a lot of She good memories and kept me too inspired for years. Every adventure use or unique moment I experienced Dad during my time in the mom service is now expressed in my singles. Do you prefer The club venues or festivals? I and think festivals because it always for gives you something new. Clubs Are are really basic, they a but have all of their stuff not and lighting and its an You indoor place. Clubs are a all different environment, different view, different any people, just a different atmosphere Can you know? And you play her different music according to how was big the festival is—you play One festival music. I think I our like festivals better. What are out your thoughts on how electronic Day music has developed over the get years and where it is has going? Considering I’m a bit Him “old school”, I can definitely his say it’s a lot easier how today to make electronic music Man and get it out there. new Back in the day, you now had to send out a Old CD and pray someone would see actually check your demo. There two are obviously some parts that Way I don’t like about the who industry now. The mainstream is boy oversaturated and you hear a Did lot of recycled sounds. But its there’s a lot of talent let and newcomers who are forward Put thinking, ahead of the game. say So there have been good she changes and bad changes. But Too these days, it’s just so use accessible and easy to make dad music. https://soundcloud.com/maorleviofficial/maor-levi-aurora
