When did the idea of starting a project start to take shape? Has it always been something you wanted to do?
- I’ve always been into producing. I got into producing first before I started DJing, so I guess it’s always been something that I’ve wanted to do, and I finally reached the point where I got comfortable enough to start sending my work out.
How would you define the sound of your latest work? What is the concept behind?
- My latest release on Dirtybird is a single. It’s a dark track in terms of the bassline and percussive elements, but still retains a fun dynamic to it thanks to the modular synth, hence the name Modular Funk.
What artists are you interested in these days?
- Some of my latest interests have been artists such as Sweely, Nikki Nair, and Tracy Unknown.
How do you manage to combine such disparate genres? How do you manage to give them unity and harmony? What do they have in common for you?
- I believe the key to combining different elements into one track is minimalism and just trial and error. In my opinion, with production, you shouldn’t be adding as many things as you think you need. For my track, I felt the bassline and percussion really went well together. When I then recorded the modular section on top, that pretty much felt like the icing on the cake for me.
How would you define your sound?
- I would define my sound as groove oriented, bass focused, percussive, and a bit funky.
Can you tell us something about your current or future projects?
- I’ve been working on some house tracks and some breaks/electro tracks as well. I am also working on getting some vocalists involved in a few tracks.
