Rickie Nolls

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

Hey guys! My name is Rickie Nolls and I'm from Chicago, IL. For the most part, I make melodic electronic music that has a lot of energy and that I truly enjoy. If I don't like it then I won't make it.

How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years? Do you feel that changing tastes over years as artistic growth? ?

My influences come from EVERYWHERE. I'm always looking around for inspiration and what makes me feel something new or interesting. Main music influences are Daft Punk, Justice, Porter Robinson, Odesza etc. etc. Believe it or not the first group that got me into electronic music (besides Daft Punk) was Bass Hunter…loved some good techno. All of the other artists I found by browsing the web and using streaming sites (RIP I find new artists by looking around on soundcloud or spotify. There are some real hidden gems on soundcloud these days.

What´s new right now?

I have been in the studio 24/7 working on new music and really developing some really special stuff that is meaningful to me personally. My goal with the current tracks I'm working on is to really evoke emotion of the listener and create something more than just a song. Like I said I've been working on SO much music and it'll all come down to which tracks I will release. That being said…very very soon ;).
