How did you survive the corona pandemic so far?
I tried to be creative. I didn’t want to be influenced by the negative vibes. Of course the pandemic is there and we have to live with it. In this difficult time new ideas and friendships are born. Because of the fact that I have been very involved with music, I have survived until now :)
How did you choose the tracks?
In the last 6 months I have listened to music intensively which I liked very much. So I thought that I should mix them together.
Do you have a favorite track included in the mix?
I like the intro very much. I was inspired by the soundtrack of the movie “Tenet”. Otherwise I like all tracks.
What are your near future projects? Are you working on any other projects?
My next project will be an EP. The EP is called “Samas” and contains 4 tracks which I produced with my friend “84 Avenue” from Paris. The EP will be released in mid November. Also I experimented a lot on a new sound in the studio. I will present it in the second part of next year.
What inspired you to produce „Canario”?
I love to be in nature. That inspired me a lot.
Where did you record it? And how?
I produced it in the studio with Cubase. I had the harmonies in my head and I knew that it would fit together with the vocals. I also listened to a lot of birdsong from a sample cd and then I decided to use this one.
How did you choose the title of the EP? Is there a special meaning behind it?
As a child I had a canary bird. In the track you can also hear that.
Derun, PAAX (Tulum) and Artenvielfalt have contributed fantastic remixes – what connects you with the artists?
I have been following Derun for a while now. His music inspires me a lot and I thought a remix of Derun would fit perfectly. Great artist. PAAX Tulum, are also good artists. I had some nice conversations with them. I think there will be another collaboration in the near future. I have a very good relationship with the guys from Artenvielfalt. We have played together at many events. Great guys!
How was the feedback so far?
I have sent it to my friends and dj friends. The feedback was very positive. I am looking forward to the release.
How will you spend your time until the EP release?
As already mentioned I will spend a lot of time in the studio and work on my new sound, which I will present next year.
