HARASS


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


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


Born in 1993, I was always heavily influenced with music and dance music at that. At a very young age for the first time i seen a guitarist rip a solo in front of a massive crowd i thought to my self , thats what i wanna do.

At the age of 12 i got my first guitar and started my musical journey there, It wasn't until 2007 at the age of 14 when i heard modern house music for the first time and couple months later ended up attended my first rave and really getting the feel for house music and ultimately fell in love!

3 years later at the age of 17 and the countless amount of raves i had gone to , I had finally realized that i wanted to be the guy up there mixing the music and making his own tracks!

In 2011 i nailed my first gig in Hollywood , Ca and it took off from there.
At first i was djing all the side stages at multiple clubs in the Los Angeles area and in a matter of months switched from the side stages and started becoming the main act!

From 2011- 2013 I was at multiple big name clubs every weekend as the local talent and building a following , But the scene had become a little dull with the respect to djs and how they get paid so i took on another role with some friends.

2013-2015 Me and some friends started putting together our own events , Which lead me to open up and dj the performance for some really big name hiphop artist out there like TY $ ,Dj Mustard ,The weekend , & Too Short. That slowly came to an end and then came producing!

In the midst of all that i've always wanted to produce , I just never had the money for my own equipment so it hindered me a bit throughout the first 4 years. But then came 2015 and i started actually producing and learning the in and outs with creating any type of dance music!

I've moved out to Las Vegas, NV in 2015 and have been here since , I've definitely slowed down on the djing aspect but have been really practicing and excelling at the producing part of the job!

Now were here in 2018 and i'm just releasing remixes , originals, hiphop beats and more. Heavily influenced with music more, rather than the djing .

Im working on releasing for first EP in 2018 and It will probably be some bass house kinda music!

I make all kinds of music and never try and put limitations on my music!

Here's one of my newest remixes for yall to check out


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


I can say i've had quite a bit of influences .

When i first started out Dj reza was the guy at every event blowing peoples minds. The way he laid down the perfect house tune and just mixed so insanely seamless was nuts to me . In all my first dj sets all my music on them were coming from Dj reza so he definitely had a big influence on me early.

as far as other djs and producers id say Deadmau5, Steve Angello , Laidback Luke , Afrojack , Diplo , and Boyz noize were my early influences and kind of actually stuck with them for a majority of time.

Laidback luke being the biggest for me. Ive honestly studied his style of mixing and djing to a tee ! Multiple sets i've listened to and tutorials i watched to try and learn his little secrets. The main thing i love about this guy is he has no pre recorded sets when he performs and that something i pry myself on a lot !

Over time my music taste has changed and went a little more heavy then melodic

That would be thanks to the likes of JAUZ who's my newest influence and favorite dj!

He brought back the old school dance sound and fused it with some gritty bass wubs and made a genre that goes by "bass House"
Mind you when he performs, his musical taste is beyond others.
When you can throw a Metallica or System of a Down song in your set at a dance festival and people go nuts then essentially you're a god lol

Id say most of the projects im working on are probably this genre and definitely more bass driven than usualy


What´s new right now?


The newest thing i got coming up is entering this remix competition in hopes to building a better following for my music .

I also plan to release my first EP in 2018 and most likely will be the likes of a bass house project!

Other then that i just plan to release lots of music weather it be a single, original, remix, trap beat, hiphop beat , or whatever.
New music will be out , So stay tuned!
