iTavo


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


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


Hi, my name is Gustavo Andrés Pérez, I'm better known as iTavo, I'm a 19 years old Venezuelan DJ and Producer of Dance Music.

Since January 2017, my track 'Kuraudia' took me a little bit forward on my dream of being a successful Producer, later, with tracks like 'Aim High & Hit' and my first Hard Trap experiment called 'Army 2 Aces' under Deugene Music label, I'm looking for making a name for myself on the Dance Music industry.

iTavo is sponsored by 3wK Esports, an Esports analysis agency, they are such a talented team who supports me in my career, and feels great to work with such a passionate group.


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


My influences are on the Dance scene, artist like Lucas & Steve, Joe Stone, and Sigala are a true inspiration for me, over time I developed a more open-minded way of enjoying music, I started including influences of Trap and Hard Trap, artist like Carnage and Terror Bass are definitely a 'must listen' on my playlists.

But it wasn't always like that, I started enjoying Dance Music thanks to the Progressive House vibes of artists like Swedish House Mafia and Martin Garrix; I'm still a big fan of Garrix, my music has been influenced for his energetic leads and the hard-hitting bass design of artists like Brooks and Toby Green!


What´s new right now?


This February 6 I'll be releasing [One A.F.K] an album under the label Deugene Music, there will be Progressive House, Melodic House and many more, you never know what would come up on the Studio, I'm hoping this to be a year of great iTavo music!

Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?


I'm a super fan of Lucas & Steve since their 'Eagle Eyes' remix track, in fact, I started including Piano on my tracks because of their music, Martin Garrix is another super artist under my point of view, Toby Green is pure magic too!

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?


Networking is always hard as an artist, in my country, Venezuela, the Dance Music isn't that big, so it's always tough to come up on the Latin American scene.

How do you personally discover new music?


I use Spotify to find out the hottest music on the scene and Soundcloud for other types of music and more underground vibes, Youtube it's a great way too, you can find almost anything on the Internet!

Once you discovered new music, do you tell others about the new music/artist you discovered? If yes, how exactly?


“I have my personal playlist on my Youtube channel, every time a like a track, it goes straight to the playlist, it's public if you wanna get a listen too, always share the good stuff, search for 'iTavo' on Youtube and enjoy!

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?


Well, Youtube tutorials are more useful than it can appear, I would recommend personally the Masterclasses, people like Brooks or Laidback Luke explaining their way to make music it's just great, you never go out of it without learning something.

[gravityforms action=”conditional” merge_tag=”Yes” condition=”is” value=”Yes”]
What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


Make some changes, change BPM, change some elements of the track, make the chords or some notes of the melody, maybe all you need to get the inspiration that you need is to see what can make the track work out, studying mixing and mastering it's a must too!

[gravityforms action=”conditional” merge_tag=”Yes” condition=”is” value=”Yes”]
We meet again in one year. What has changed?


Releasing great music, that's the plan and enjoy every second, I hope to grow up as a brand and see what happens, never stop believing.
