Hi Nostalgix! How are you doing?
Hey!! I’m good, thanks for having me!
Take us back to the beginning, how did you find your passion in producing electronic music?
I absolutely fell in love with electronic music about 5 year ago. One of my friends took me to see my first EDM show in my final year of high school. I didn’t even know what a rave was at the time, but going into the crowd that night felt so freeing; I’d never felt more accepted in my life. Dancing around that night, I fell in love with dance music and its culture.
Shortly after that, I started DJing for fun because of my love for electronic music. After a couple years of DJing and playing all around Vancouver, I decided I wanted to do even more with it. So I started learning music production. I wanted to be able to play my own songs, and create those experiences for other people.
How have you been staying productive during the quarantine period?
I’ve been writing tons of new music, doing live stream performances, and preparing for when shows come back! I have a lot of crazy and fun ideas for when touring is safe, which I’m so excited about!
Other than that I’ve been taking care of myself, staying active and working out as much as I can. I think it’s so important to take care of your mental and physical health first to be able to be productive and present through whatever you’re doing.
You were featured in DJ Mag’s “12 emerging Artists”. How do you feel getting this big mention?
Such a humbling feature to get from DJ mag. Made me even more excited for the future!
You released an EP called “Act Out” through Night Bass. Could you share the creative process behind about this EP?
When I started writing “Act Out“, I was going through a time in my life when I’d realized I couldn’t make everyone happy and I needed to focus on my own happiness in doing what I want. I produced the instrumental for “Act Out“, then I started freestyling on the record about what I was going through. I feel like it really woke something up inside of me and created the idea for the EP.
The EP has four songs; Act Out, Dangerous, Downtown, and Run It Up. They’re all connected in a sense of self expression in going after what you want, and a lot of bass!
Your “Act Out” EP includes collaborations with AC Slater, Way and Makla. How did you end up working with these names?
AC Slater, Way and Makla are all artists I really like and look up to, so I’m happy that they’re part of the EP! In the Spring I had joined AC Slater on his Hi8 tour, so during the tour we decided to start working on “Dangerous” together. Way and I have actually made music together in the past, he did the vocals on my song “Mind Tricks“. He’s an artist I love working with, I feel like we really compliment each other’s styles. Lastly, the Makla guys are such talented producers, I love what they’re doing with their music and sound, so I had to get them involved on the EP!
What is your favorite song from the EP?
All of them! Haha!
This quarantine period has been hard for the music industry so now it’s time to support. Any interesting new producers you would recommend to follow?
Most definitely!! I think now more than ever it’s so important to support one another, especially when the whole industry is basically digital right now. I’ve been loving Capozzi, Glass Petals, Vouti, NOISES and No Thanks. They’re all talented artists that you should keep an eye on!!
