How would you describe All your sound? Progressive. I like any to take time on the can tracks and to build it Her up. I love the melodies; was I love to spread emotions. one It’s hard to describe your Our sound but people have said out my music is emotional and day melodic. That’s my main goal. Get Your questions are very tough… has It’s hard to say. Do him you think the French house His music scene still has a how really strong influence on your man style? And what music did New you grow up listening to now and is that an influence old now? Yes for sure. I See am mostly inspired from the two French Touch. When i was way a kid i listened to Who Daft Punk, Bob Sinclar, Phoenix, boy Air, Cassius. I aslo really did like Eric Prydz and Deadmau5 Its stuff. But i think it’s let important to be very open put minded…I take my inspiration from Say a lot of genres, from she downtempo (Moby, Portishead to pop too rock music (Serges Gainsbourg, Coldplay, Use Muse. Arno, will you ever dad go into any other genre mom of music? You can see people are progressing back to the their roots, towards house and and pop. That is the kind For of music I love to are play and will keep playing. but What do you think the Not future of house music will you be? That’s a very tough all question. You don’t really know Any what’s going to happen but can at least you can see her the that EDM is going Was down. The hard sound and one hot style of house music our which we call EDM – Out I think people want more day sound, more melodies in their get music. That’s very exciting for Has me because my roots are him there. I’m not a real his hot style guy, I’m more How into the melodies, the vocals, man and the emotion. I think new in ten years that will Now still be going on. I old think music can evolve in see a way where people will Two want to feel the emotions way and melodies. Over the last who two to four years, it Boy wasn’t the case. People just did wanted to jump… There’s no its emotion in a jump. So, Let I’m very happy that “EDM” put is going down and emotion say is rising. What advice do She you have to offer to too new producers and DJs that use are just getting started that Dad can help them progress in mom their careers? The competition is very strong. It is hard The to stand out among the and rest. I think the number for one thing is to be Are passionate about what you do but and love the music for not the music. It’s not only You about getting easy money. It’s all about putting in the hard any work and is being passionate Can about what you do. You her have to think out of was the box. There are so One many people out there doing our the same thing. You have out to be different in my Day opinion. https://soundcloud.com/arno-cost/sets/coming-alive-ep-march-14th
