Tell us about your background, what have you gotten to where you are today?
I was born and raise into Dance music. Since not as old as 4 years old was I already listening to Tiesto’s music back then when he just started getting known into the Scene. Since then, It was the beginning of a big journey where I had to find other people and music with that same kind of vibe and energy that totally changed my life. Already as a child, I was influenced by Djs such as Tiesto, Daft Punk, Above and Beyond and Kraftwerk that were for me the pioneer of Electronic music as we know it today. Without the idea of becoming a Dj or a producer before, I started to bring Dance music into my life and it quickly became a passion that followed me until the age of 17 where I discovered Djs such as Avicii, Alesso and Arty back in 2011-2012 during what some call the Gold era of EDM. I was so shocked when I first listened to them and considered going into productions myself since then. However, the point of no return for me was definitely when I first discovered Swedish House Mafia back in 2012 that was a total game changer for me. I went to their One Last Tour at Centre Bell in Montreal and from that day, I knew I HAD to make music myself to bring my own sound and signature in this industry. The vibe, the energy and emotions that I felt that day are still moving through me even today. From there, I never stopped making my way into Dance Music and here I am today.
Where are you from?
I am from Montreal in Canada but I am from Italian descent and most of my family are there.
When did you start music?
I started producing at the age of 17 using Fl studio without really knowing what I was getting into. It’s like something just told me to do it.
How did you get into music?
My background into Electronic Dance Music slowly brought me to get into music myself. Back when I started, I had no knowledge in music and never played an instrument of my life. I took 2 years of piano classes so I could learn the basics to compose myself and bring into life my own ideas
What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?
Listen only to myself was and still is the most challenging thing I’ve overcome. We’re constantly influenced by pairs trying to tell us what is and what’s not good for our own being. I waited way too long before I finally listened to my heart and did what I truly wanted in life. I was always a puppet trying to please to everyone. You’ll only betray yourself to keep this pattern going around until you finally decide of your own reality.
Are you currently signed or independent?
I’m currently signed with some labels such as Aero Records, Deep Universe, Three Dot House, Sounds of Soul and CMMO Records
Who inspires you the most musically?
Swedish House Mafia definitely had the biggest impact on me and are the reason I’m making music today. However, I would say my biggest inspiration this year comes from theses guys called KREAM who are totally killing it right now. Love their styles and energy they bring into their mix! Meduza are definitely just below which are the main Djs I’m listening to in my daily routine.
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
I’m always trying to keep the listener involved in the track so he wants to know what’s going next. I love to use different but familiar sounds so people could recognize me from a track to another. Music for me is all about vibes and emotions and that’s what I want the audience to remember when they listen to it.
Any new music coming out soon?
Many new releases are coming for next months and beginning of 2021 such as “All I Want“releasing on November 27.
What is your greatest achievement as a musician?
Being confident about what I create is definitely my biggest achievement since I started. I waited for way too long before I finally decided to release my first track and I realized that the reason was because I wasn’t totally satisfied myself of what I do. So why would people get excited to listen to it if I can’t enjoy it myself? The day I finally got satisfied of what I was making was the day I knew I was ready to share it with the world and I’m more than glad I did it.
Do you produce your own music? If not who do you work with?
Of course. I don’t see the point otherwise.
Who is one artist you wish you could work with?
Right now, definitely KREAM. I think we could understand each other and could come up with something so easily! They are hard to reach out though.
Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is coming out? What is it about?
.My next release “All I Want“ releases on November 27 is probably one of the tracks I prefer in a way that it truly represents what I’m trying to bring into music. It’s a mix of good energy, deepness and emotions to create a unique Deep progressive House track.
What does a day inside your shoes look like?
In a dream world, my typical day would be to produce in the morning, go for some gainz in the gym, and then going to festival every. Single. Day.
Anything else you want the audience to know about you?
I am also a kinesiologist and massage therapist in my day life. I am the guy you need if you have any tensions or bad posture!
