Henry Himself

Read the Henry Himself Interview below and share it on social media.

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

My name is Henrik Emanuelsson and my artist name is: Henry Himself

Just to keep it short,
I'm an DJ/Producer & Artist from Sweden, I've been doing electronic music for almost 9 years now.

My music has been played by big artists in the EDM scene like, Hardwell, Diplo, LMFAO, Major Lazer etc.
My music has also been played in the biggest festivals around the world like: Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas etc.

Other Achievements:

– I've landed on the Billboard list under the category field “Next Big Sound” 2014 / Week 10.
– Remixes that have been acclaimed by official DJ Mag, where my remixes have been appointed to beter versions than the originals.

I think that's pretty much it.

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

When I started to produce electronic music I started with Hardstyle back in 2009, a year later I wanted to expand my musical development and try some other genres aswell, so I started with House in 2010, the first track that got me hooked to House music was actually: Leave The World Behind by SHM & Laidback Luke.

But if we talk about my influencers now, I'd say that my influencers is very wide because I'm very wide when it comes to listen to music aswell. So I'm getting inspiration from all genres to be honest when it comes to produce music. Sometimes I'd like to do a pop track, then the other day I wanna do a EDM track, and then a trap/hiphop etc.

I think my musical taste hasn't changed but from a productive perspective, Yes!

What´s new right now?

What's new? wow I have a lot of things coming up actually.

I had a little winter tour here in Sweden and we're actually starting to do a schedule for a summer tour right now.

When it comes to new releases:
My first upcoming track will be March 7th together with Zymbio and Taylor Jones, which is a Future Bass tune.

And I actaully got everything confirmed about a new track that I signed with Will Sparks label: Viking Records, which is gonna be a Hardstyle tune. (So it feels great to release a Hardstyle tune now, because I started with that genre back in 2009)

And I have new things coming up with We Are Loud (They did the EDM Hit: ''Booyah'' together with: Showtek)

I think I have over 30-40 new projects right now and 15 of them is finished,
So I'm very excited about the future. =)

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?

Well, I don't know if I have some mistakes but one thing I can say is that, don't listen to everyone when it comes to your music that affects you in a negative way, just focus on people who's wants you well and want you to develop and grow in the music your making and there's a word for that: ''Constructive Criticism''.

Everybody has their own opinion about music but if YOU believe in your music, you can reach it to the next level and people will recognize you.

It's hard to give ONE tip so I'm gonna give out a few tips instead:

– Believe in yourself and stay true to yourself (That's the most important thing when it comes to the music industry.)
– Be humble (If your acting like an ass, nobody wants to work with you)
– Have patience (You can't be star over a night, you need to be patience and it can take some years, but It's definitely worth it if you really want this)

[gravityforms action=”conditional” merge_tag=”Yes” condition=”is” value=”Yes”]
What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?

The biggest challenge is to get a name out there in the big music jungle, because A LOT of people produce music nowadays and it has been easier to produce aswell.

Successively I'm climbing to that ladder and it works really fine and I'm still gonna do that because music is my real passion since I was 3 years old.
