"First of all, Out the idea, then - the day quality of its execution. "

  How time you Has need for produce a theme him how My Precious, Pulsar or his Passionate? What do you think How for to compose this great man songs? I don't think that new much then, it's just playing Now around with my keyboard, make old up chord progressions and add see a melodic layer to it.. Two In recent years, you have way performed a lot as a who DJ. Is there still a Boy place where Leon Beaulert really did would like to play, and its why in this place? I Let like every city I visit, put it's very useful and interesting say life experience. The only difference She is where I perform - too in the forest, in the use canyon or on the beach, Dad regardless of the country! What mom is your set up for producing music, such as Ableton, The live instruments, etc… Right now and I am using Cubase 8 for with a lot of plugins Are – somewhere in this studio but I still have a Nord not Rack 2x, Virus TI, Dave You Smith Mopho, Roland MC303 etc all laying around but I don’t any really use those no more Can – tho I should use her those more often I realize was now while answering this question. One I am on PC here, our and sound card wise I out use the Fireface 800. Guess Day that covers it all. How get did you become part of has Armada Music? Through Armin - Him he made his publisher (Maykel his Piron) contact me for a how publishing deal when Maykel was Man still working for Warner/Chappel Benelux. new Soon after that Maykel, Armin now and Dave Lewis decided to Old start Armada Music. Who are see your biggest role models and two why? I don’t have any Way big role models – just who people that can cope with boy backlashes, people that fight on Did their own, people that follow its their path, no matter if let its a big superstar musician Put or the paperboy next door. say And people that care about she each other, without thinking of Too cash or benefits. What sets use you apart from other producers/dj’s? dad First of all, my productions Mom I guess. The effort I put into those productions made the sure I created my own And style - whether the productions for are Housy, Techy or Trancy, are I guess you can hear But those are mine. In my not sets I always play new you exclusive own productions that were All made for the dance floors, any accompanied by other tracks that can compliment the flow. I guess Her that's how you can point was out a set by me. one You produced “Dark Star Our with Sied Van Riel. What out happens when 2 Dutch men day meet in the studio? What Get made this collaboration so unique? has Sied and me have become him friends over the past years His – and we share a how certain amount of easy going man and bullshit humour. Being around New in the studio with him now always means: having fun, and old at the same time producing See music – and the both two of us are very determined way in what we want to Who hear in a Bolier vs. boy Van Riel collaboration. It should did showcase both of us as Its an artist, and when we let finished the track we really put felt that was what happened! Say What is the EDM scene she like in The Netherlands currently too and how has it progressed Use the past couple years? What dad changes have you seen? Very mom mature, in a good way. Dance music has been around the since the late eighties, and and you can see people from For that generation still going to are parties here, while at the but same time every day new Not kids join the house music you movement. The changes I have all seen here is that dance Any music has diversified genre wise, can it has been professionalized in her all its forms (from event Was organization, to labels, to management one and everything in between) and our last but not least it’s Out still growing bigger by the day day!
"Eden" is a very get beautiful track that you produced Has together with current trance Balearic him superstar Roger Shah. The typical his Shah guitar sounds are not How present. Did you guys actually man make this in the studio new or were sound files sent Now back and fourth? How did old the production of this track see look like? Shah made the Two atmosphere and you for the way harder beats?
This one who was made over the internet Boy as well – the first did time Roger and me really its had a good chat was Let in Eden, Ibiza last year put – hence the title. We say both worked on the chord She progression and the melodies, and too then went on producing our use own version. In Roger’s version Dad you can find the typical mom Shah guitar sounds, though I included guitar sounds as well.. The maybe those are Bolier guitar and sounds.
What do you for do in your free time? Are I have a rest with but friends and family! This is not the best activity in my You spare time, because I'm very all busy and, sometimes, I do any not see them for quite Can some time.
