ZesKo


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


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


I'm Daniel Ribeiro a.k.a. ZesKo, I'm 20 years old and I'm a Dj/Producer from Portugal. I've been djing/producing for around 3 years and so far I met and worked with a lot of great people and it's been an amazing experience! I've released some free tracks on some nice network channels, I accomplished one of my main objectives which was being supported by a big Dj/Producer and I've got a lot of great feedback which I really appreciate.


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


l remember hearing "Komodo" by Mauro Picotto and I was instantly hooked on it! Loved how athmospheric and energetic it is and since then I've always had a thing for electronic music but what really got me into djing/producing was Hardwell and Martin Garrix. When I saw Hardwell's set on UMF 2013 and Martin's set on UMF 2014 I just thought "This is want I want to do!" so I started messing around on FL Studio and, at the time, I really enjoyed Big Room and that's what I produced until I changed to Progressive House. Right now I'd say I get influenced from everyone and everything and I just make what I feel like doing without restricting myself.


What´s new right now?


Lately I've been kinda disappeared and haven't released something in a while because I'm still trying to find my own sound and make it as good as I want it to be but I can say that there's a lot of new tracks with a lot of great producers that, if all goes well, will be released soon so make sure to follow me on Soundcloud and social media! In terms of gigs, since the beginning I've been more focused on the "producer side" so I don't expect to have one soon but I do love djing too and hope that soon I'll be able to play my music live.

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 think the biggest mistake I made was to not train my ears to know what really sounds good earlier! Really spend a lot of a time hearing lots of tracks you like and after some time you will be able to recognize what sounds professional and what doesn't which will help you in the long run and then just work hard to be able to reproduce that same sound in your own way.

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


I'd say my biggest challenge is finishing tracks, it's really hard when both time and desire to produce don't cooperate. I think the best way to overcome it is to get inspiration from a lot of tracks or even sets you like, to manage time (which I still suck at) and to go out and have fun with friends and take some time out from music when it's needed.
