What was the first thing that attracted you to the world of electronic music?
The possibility of being able to surprise and take risks at the moment, the dynamics, the constant renewal and the power of adaptation to any other branch or style that allows an infinite range of possibilities.
Do you remember any album or concert that has changed everything?
A lot, but a concert? Chemical Brother at Pacha Buenos Aires. And an album? Sasha Involver2.
Since you got into this professionally, what did you miss the most nationally, internationally and on the contrary, what helped you the most to grow, even to believe in yourself?
I think what helped me the most to grow and believe in myself is seeing the reaction and support of the public around the world, always trusting my intuition, things like the public expecting me to play one of my latest songs and I don’t. do it, and instead prepare something better or different and they recognize me, that gives me strength and confidence to continue believing in myself day to day.
And what I miss the most is clearly spending time at home, at least more than a couple of weeks. internationally? experience that feeling of arriving in a new city willing to discover it and then realizing that you won’t be there for more than 12 hours to go to the next gig. ha!
How is the music scene living in your city with this murky pandemic situation?
luckily everything is back to normal, as in almost everyone. we can finally meet again and have fun!
What are your favorite places to hang out in the city?
When I’m in New York, Domino Park in Brooklyn, and if I have a little more time, Upstate is a great place to kick back and relax.
In Buenos Aires, any park in Palermo, or in front of the Rio de La Plata.
Have you had time to focus on making music, spending time with your family, or planning future projects?
lately none of that, after the world returned to normal in events, I was traveling on tour a lot, spending time with friends and family is increasingly difficult, although today’s connectivity helps, it is not same, almost the same as making music on tour or in a studio, yes but no!
How was your last project born?
well, if you mean my most current EP that is about to come out these days, it was born during the beginning of the pandemic. I moved to a quiet place and set up the studio in the living room to have access to it all the time and dedicated myself to recording absolutely everything I did. living all the time with the studio allowed me to work in a relaxed and uncontracted way. for example, in the song «the morning song» I spent about two weeks with the drum and bass loop playing, and one day by magic, in just 5 minutes the melody appeared. It’s a very special melody for me and I don’t think I could have get it by working in any other way.
What do you want to convey in this work? What is the concept behind?
the concept is always the same, to make deep music, with soul, that invites you to close your eyes. and I am satisfied with the fact that they are 3 super different songs and that makes it clear that I do not always like to do the same thing, both in my songs and in my dj sets.
As for your studio, what is your setup currently made of?
My studio is actually portable, I am using a lot of samples, MaxForLive, the Nord Drum 3P and a little portable controller.
What’s the one team you’ll never get rid of, no matter what?
A Good pair of Headphones!
What would you say is the definition of your sound?
hypnotic, rhythmic and deep
What was the last record store you visited and what did you get out there?
A records store located in Brooklyn called Blue-Sun and I got “Floating Points – Promises”
