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


Hi,I am APL stylized A??? i am a 20 year old Electronic Music Producer from Johannesburg South Africa i have worked on music for about nearly a decade now i started at a very young age at 11-12 years old i fell in love with trance music which was quite popular at the time i got a copy of FL Studio and started making random stuff it has been a long journey ever since then i started producing daily i wanna say 3-4 years ago .I would describe my music as Melodic at times but also very dark i produce Techno-like stuff and Melodic Down-Tempo electronic music too i have experimented with trance and Psychedelic Trance too i have a large vault of produced stuff but only have one track on Soundcloud because i do not think those tracks are worth releasing until redone.As for me I am a Jozi boy grew up in Johannesburg to say what it is like to grow up in South Africa well it is interesting to say the least it is a rough place but a place filled with beauty and rich with culture and most importantly it is the place i call home ?


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


I first got into Electronic Music/Dance Music when I was 11-12 and back then euphoric trance was all the rage i listened to Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk but I also am inspired by Deadmau5 and Daft Punk those where the sounds that dominated my childhood and I would say yes my taste has changed over time i now am heavily inspired by REZZ and Eeekoo are the main ones I am listening to now that being said my music tastes are diverse I love everything from Indie acts such as Tycho and Glass Animals and even some local acts in South Africa I love Chunda Munki,Kyle Watson and other artists in that vein of Bass House music but mainly because I love to go clubbing at Truth Nightclub


What´s new right now?


Yeah i do i just dropped a remix of Deadmau5 – Let Go and am also gonna drop a new original track in a few days ?
