The Mouse


Read the The Mouse Interview below and share it on social media.


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


I am The Mouse. I am born and raised from Tarlac City, Philippines. I am a DJ and Producer for almost two years, mainly producing songs from the many genres under Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

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


My influences go way back to 2011 when I first heard the progressive house track, "Save The World" by Swedish House Mafia. I then discovered Hardwell through his track "Spaceman". Hardwell has been my hero ever since and through his record label, Revealed Recordings, I discovered Dannic, Dyro, Kill The Buzz, and many more. After that, I kept discovering more and more genres of electronic music and I never stop listening to these different genres.

Right now, my influences in my productions are from the big room house of Hardwell to the trance of Armin van Buuren to the moombahton of Henry Fong to the hardstyle of Headhunterz and many more. I just love different genres in the dance music scene and I just want to keep producing under my various influences.

I am currently under Big Room House but I have produced Future House, Progressive House, Future Bass and G-House but I am returning to Big Room and Progressive starting this year.


What´s new right now?


There is my radio show Mousehole Radio, which supports artists from around the world. The support I've been getting is great and you can check out the first 3 episodes through my Youtube Channel here:

You can also send song submissions through my demo email: demo.themouse@gmail.com and you might get featured on my radio show!

I am working on a Moombahton-Trap combination track before I return to my usual Big Room/Progressive House roots. You can expect the track within January *wink wink*. After that I'm working on some originals and maybe some remixes in my Big Room/Progressive House roots. You can expect more shows this year if it's possible.

Lastly, I found a way to connect my fans in an outstanding way that no one in the dance music scene has done before. It is a secret for now, but I am currently working on it and you can expect that in March of this year :))

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 am a big fan of Hardwell since 2012! He is such a cool and humble guy and I want to get released on his record label, "Revealed Recordings" one day but if not, even just meeting him would complete my life.

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


I guess being lazy and procrastinating is one. Back then, I never found the time to make music even though I had lots of time but that has changed now through my Mousehole Radio project and I hope I could release more music for you guys.

For newcomer musicians, getting a break in the music industry is hard, but if this is your passion, you have to work hard and work smart to make it.

How do you get gigs? Can you share any tips?


You have to market your brand of music. With the technology we have today, social media presence is CRUCIAL and originality is IMPORTANT. So find your own way of branding yourself. People will notice you and you will get gigs in no time.

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


I have been trying to get my music released through a record label but that has not happened yet. But I've been getting support from those DJs and Producers who have released their music through a record label so hopefully, I will get my music released in one of these record labels soon!

Also, I am currently working on my social media presence but you can expect that to radically change soon ?

How do you personally discover new music?


I check out new music through my e-mail and through Soundcloud. Sometimes, I just scroll down on Twitter and find out that someone has released some new music! I also check Youtube and other social media websites so my advice is to check every social media website that you can find to discover some new music.
