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


I have a lot of influences:

When I was 4 – 8 years old:
-French Techno and rave (Miss Kittin, the Hacker, Vitalic, David Carretta, Tyga…)
– Commercial Electronic Music (Eric Prydz, Bob Sinclar, David Guetta, Mylo, Sinema…)
– A lot of Funk and Disco music!
When I was 10 – 11 years old:
– 90's Happy Hardcore from Netherlands and Germany
– hardcore from Netherlands and Gabber (Thunderdome) and RaveBase the compilation.
But, when I was 12, I discovered Wigan Pier and it changed my musical life!
I collected all CDs from this nightclub (original CDs), I listened a lot of UK Bounce Music (KB Project, Total Control, Ben Trengove…), and I discovered UK Oldschool Piano from 90's because it was played at Wigan Pier Nightclub during the 90's (ASHA, 2 Funky 2…).
I was really obssesed about this universe and I made a lot of searches about electronic music in the North of England, perhaps Wigan Pier stay the best thing I've ever discovered.

When I was 14-15 I started to listen EDM again, but I didn't like all commercial songs and I swiftly listened Deep House and French Bass House (Malaa, Tchami, Badjokes, Valy Mo, Gold Digger and Confession Records artists…).
At the same time I listened a lot of Disco and Funk Music (Japanese Disco too) and I discovered the Vaporwave universe too.

Sorry, but the musical culture is something very important to me!


What´s new right now?


I have a project with my friend Mahara which will be available and I'll mix on radios in my country.
Nevertheless, I always search opportunites and it's hard to be heard when you're 16! People think that you're young and immature and that it's reflected on your sound.
