ULK


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


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


Hello! I'm ULK. I'm a music producer and DJ from Wisconsin. I mainly make bass music but I also write other types of music too depending on what mood I'm in. I attend college at UW Eau Claire and am pursuing a degree in Business Management – Human Resources, too. It's hard to balance everything at times but nothing will stop me from pursuing music. I'll usually split my priorities into school during the day and music at night, which often results in me not getting much sleep. But it's worth it.


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


When I first started making music I made big room, trap and house because that's what was "in" at the time. My first big inspiration, and in a way still is, is Porter Robinson for sure. I don't necessarily draw direct inspiration from his sound/music anymore but he's inspired me to try to find my own sound and to just make whatever I want. My biggest inspiration at the moment however is being around some very talented people in my local scene. We always share our music with each other and give each other feedback. We're always pushing each other to push our sound and skills and it's inspiring to see everyone around me grow and get shows and stuff.


What´s new right now?


I'm really excited for the next few months. I have a show in Madison, WI opening for Styn & Berrix on December 21st and an unannounced show in February near Fon Du Lac, WI. I also have a looooot of unreleased music I'm currently sitting on. Multiple collabs with Shrugz, collabs with Oktiv, Qurli, Oddrac, Aaron Porter, west korea and cntrlla, as well as some originals. Follow my soundcloud and social media links below to keep up with them ?
