Starcatcher


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


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


Ok, my name is Daniel. I'm 18. I'm electronic musician and my stage name is Starcatcher. I live in a small country in Central Asia which called Kyrgyzstan, I was born in Bishkek, and all my life I have been lived there. I write music in such genres as electronica, progressive trance etc.


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


I fell in love with electronic music when I was 14, I heard some song on a radio at night, it was something unusual, sounding, rhytm, and all in that song was melodically. And in that moment I opened amazing world of beautiful electronic music. Then I found out that it was song of Avicii "Fade Into Darkness". I get an inspiration from everything. And my influences almost hadn't changed by the time, I think it's very imporant to not lose your starting point in music. Eventually, I opened for myself such musicians as Porter Robinson, Puppet, Madeon, FM-84, Timecop1983, Swedish House Mafia, I was inspired by them. Now, I try to listen to different music, from hip-hop to retrowave, it helps to develop artist.


What´s new right now?


At the moment, I write an album, which will contain different tracks with mixing of genres, like future bass, retrowave, progressive trance and electronica. About new releases, I have a second artist name " Daniel Librand" under this name, I release tracks in progressive house and electro house. Soon, my new track will be released the 25th of December on Filthy Sounds. I don't have live gigs because electronic music isn't developed in my country, but in near future I hope to rectify this situation. I need more audience to release a new material. When I get positive comments from different people on my music, it very helps and motivates me don't give up and continue to create music.
