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


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


Well, i'm Andrés Mata a Venezuelan DJ & Producer, i was born in Caracas, but im living in Valencia, Venezuela for the moment, i make more than 5 EDM Genres like Techno, Tech-House, Drum and Bass, Trap & Breakbeat, but right now im focusing on droppin just Tech-House due to its huge demand and my love for it, it all started when i was 14 y/o when my dad bought me my first keyboard, i've been in love with music all my life but i wasn't able to create it until that day, 10 years later, here we are, its been kind of hard due to my country's regulations n stuff, things arent good these days and being an artist in a comunist country isnt quite inspiring but that didnt stopped me and never will!

You can check all of my social media below for more!


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


Well, my first big influence was and will be The Prodigy, i was just a kid the first time i listened to Out of Space, but it all came alive when i heard Climbatize, it was there when i knew i wanted to make electronic music, i started doing experimental stuff (it sounded horrible) and was trying to do that for some time but then one of my biggest friends who is a well known DJ in Argentina right now, showed me Noisecontrollers and the Hardstyle movement on 2007 and i fell in love with it, so we started to make Hardstyle, had a few gigs n stuff, but the movement on my city wasnt well received, so we had to think and came up with the idea of making our own agency with Any genres DJs, in 2009 that went awfully wrong and we separated, that's when i knew Drum And Bass and my GF at the time told me i should be producing it, so i did, as soon as i know im releasing a dnb track with a Colombian label and that gave me the motivation to keep doing it, but DnB was loosing ground against Tech-house, and i decided to try it out, best decision ever, i fell in love with it and now i have more than 20 releases with a unique style…


What´s new right now?


Actually, i've just released a Podcast with Housechart, also on Jan 25th my track "Abbastanza" will be out with Beyond Souls Records, i will be dropping almost 7 tracks the first semester of the year so stay tuned! Here's all my social media!
