Hardmonk


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


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


Hi there! I'm Hardmonk and my real name is Jacob Gomes. I hail from the Indian City of Joy ie Kolkata. I started my musical journey when I was in the seventh grade. I always had a deep passion and love for music and I started off with remixing tracks of my favorite artists/DJ's. I gradually had the upper hand and guidance from my brothers who have taught me to produce tracks. That's all about me.


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


My first big influence was Tropical Music. I first heard Kygo's Firestone and I loved it. My initial days were spent producing Tropical & Chill Vibe Music. My influence in the genres have changed gradually as I started producing Progressive/Electro House & Big Room. It's been 2 years that I've also started producing Future Bass, Trap & Dubstep along with Hardstyle. Yes, my taste did change over time as now I mostly concentrate on producing Future Bass, Trap & Big Room music.


What´s new right now?


Yes, there's something new coming up. I'm planning to release an EP really soon. My previous EP's "Moonlight" & the latest one "Broken" were quite a hit among my fans and my friends.
