What inspired you to become a musician?
When I was a kid, we had a piano in the living room, my sister was always playing with it.
One day she started to play “Imagine” from John Lennon, that’s when I asked her to teach me how to play.
How old were you when you started playing (music)?
I was about 5 years old.
How would you describe your music?
I always produce music the way I feel at the moment.
I listen to my feelings, then I write chords, mostly minor chords, so there can be Happy songs, as much as Melancholic/Sad songs, but always with a House/Deep base.
My music is made for people who want to listen to a story.
Where have you performed? Do you have any upcoming shows?
I performed in the Caribbean in some Underground and House clubs, in France - Marseille (my hometown) where I’m a resident DJ, and some Rooftops of London.
My upcoming shows are mostly in France at the moment!
Where would your ideal concert be?
I would love to play some good House Music in Ibiza; I also love the Tulum vibes and Mykonos!
What is your favorite song to perform?
I have a lot of fun playing my mashup of my track, "Good Mood," the vocals of Kanye West - I Love It.
It always blows my club!
Which famous musicians do you admire?
Hans Zimmer, Worakls.
What is the best advice you’ve been given?
I always wanted to do everything by myself.
Once, the producer Maarten Vorwerk told me I should let qualified people work on my Mix/Master.
And yes, that was a good advice! The best one till now.
If you could change something about the Music Industry, what would it be?
Maybe the way artists get paid by Labels/Other.
Everything should be clear between labels and artist, with automatic payment, without asking anyone anything.
What is a message you would like to give to your fans?
Thanks for the support!
I hope my music delivers a great message for you.
What’s next for you?
To produce more and more music, and to start touring everywhere would be the best, haha.
