Aegis


Read the Aegis Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I'm Aegis, producer and DJ, back when I was about 16, I didn't really listen to EDM much, skrillex was one of the only ones I had listened to as I didn't even really know what Dubstep was at the time. At some point in time Zedd's "Clarity" came on the radio, and for some reason it struck me in a way where I just wanted to write music like Zedd. It was a beautiful song and the sound was so up beat and enjoyable. Since that moment, my biggest goal as an artist is to make people experience music the same way I did when I first heard that song. Of course my style isn't anything like Zedd's even though when I started I copied him pretty heavily. I even downloaded Cubase as I had learned that was his DAW of choice. These days I'm just a small town DJ, I enjoy bass house more than most other genres although I do love me some dub. (My most popular track so far being: https://soundcloud.com/aegisofficialmusic/aegis-lose-control )

I haven't been without any kind of success though, last year around January, I broke into the scene a little bit, I opened for Vibe Street, Pegboard Nerds (In April) and this last November I opened for Ponicz, Trollphace, and P0gman.

I hope to see more success as I go, but honestly, I just do it because I love the music.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


As I said previously, one of my biggest influences when I started was Zedd, the way he wrote music was just gorgeous to me, and he'll always be a genius. Currently some of my biggest influences are AC Slater, Ghastly, Snails, Pegboard Nerds, and Omar Varela. They're all extremely unique artists who have a sound and all started rather small, as someone who started on a 300 dollar laptop that could barely run Fruity Loops, I connect with a lot of it. Discovering these artists the way I did definitely changed my taste and style and so far I've slowly been getting my own groove.


What´s new right now?


What's new right now? I've got a few songs I'm putting the finishing touches on and trying to find release dates or even a label to send them to, I might be having a show date announcement coming soon but I can't say much about that yet. But if you, as a reader, find yourself interested in me at all, get in touch! I love talking and meeting people/fans and I intend to stay very well connected with everyone as time goes on.
