Where are you currently based and what is the music scene like there?
Hello! I’m from Paris, France, and I still live in my hometown. I don’t think I need to introduce the local scene since it’s one of the biggest and most avant-garde in Europe now. We’ve got incredible, worldwide famous electronic music artists belonging to all genres
What have you been working on recently?
So many things at once. I Just finished 3 remixes and some original tracks in the studio, I’m about to release new music …
You have an EP coming out soon on Mindshake Records (Paco Osuna’s label) how did you come to release with Mindshake Records?
There were many reasons. But the main ones are is that I respect Paco as an artist and person; I like his vision and how he thinks. The second is that it made sense musically : these tracks fit Mindshake’s identity and vice-versa.
What influenced the sound for this EP?
My mood of the moment, where I was, what I was listening to or watching … I’m very impulsive when it comes to producing; I follow the wind.
How do you usually go about writing music?
I am mainly working in my home studio so as soon as I have an idea, I translate it on my computer and put aside bits of this and that until I have a more global vision of what I want.
What programs/instruments did you use during the recording and producing of this EP?
I am using some hardware as the virus TI, novation mininova or the Moog Little Phatty Stage II and i use a lots of different VST too
Can you tell us a bit about your label FORM Music?
Form Music, which I created in 2009, aims at being a platform for talented artists, established or unknown. The only condition is that we have to like the music we receive, otherwise we don’t care about the rest. So we’ve had releases by respected artists like Julian Jeweil or UMEK, and also released amazing music by younger rising artists like JuanDDD and Celic, from Colombia, or The Reaktivitz from France.
Any upcoming releases we should know about?
Valkyrie EP by American trailblazer Dustin Holtsberry is out right now on Form Music – it’s a Techno gem! Feel free to check it out on Beatport : http://classic.beatport.com/
Where will you be touring this year?
Pretty much everywhere as usual! I’m heading soon to Miami to perform at Resistance/Ultra Music Festival, I’ve got a bunch of upcoming Form Music events around the world, a bunch of festivals as well, and some Ibiza dates as well…
What do you like to do away from music?
I’m a living cliché of a Frenchman so I’ll take fine dining and wine anytime! Other than that, I’m into sports a lot : running, snowboarding, boxing …
What do you have planned for the rest of 2019?
To continue enjoying the job I’ve been blessed to have, to keep making music, and to enjoy myself. And definitely to release a coupla more EPs and remixes.
