2. Where do your musical roots lie, what are your first memories of electronic music and when did you know you wanted to pursue it seriously? Are there any particular productions or artists from the past that really made you think to yourself ‘this is what I want to do.”
The truth that from very young I was very encouraged by the music in a home of diverse musical genres.
I remember my first videogames already had some electronic sequences , which , spend hours listening without knowing it, but my great figure of electronic music to which I fell deeply happy he was with , “It’s no good” ( Depeche Mode) can still remember that heavy bass , accompanied by finely effects and saturated guitars.
Well, I think I had that in mind when I felt supported by those closest to me, and even people who did not know me , that’s when I pull out my first ep “Fast Line” . That made me feel very comfortable with which made a great change in me, as well , returning from any meeting where this , to put into production. hehe if , surely , he was an artist who woke me this beautiful and pleasant lifestyle , which recall sent an E – Mail (since found another way to do it ) he was “Deep Mariano ”
3. How difficult was learning to produce for you in the beginning? Did you take any Audio Engineering programs or production courses to help you out or are you pretty much self taught? And did anyone give any advice early on that really helped?
Uh! It was very difficult , all started near my family studying at a school of sound ” CETEAR ” and one day at home I first saw software production , it was like love at first sight, as well , that person came to my house to install the software, remember it was the fruity loops and the reason ( and at that time there was the thousands of videos out there today ) was much autodidact several years , and even still , but a moment and thank several friends producers gave me a big hand
4. What parts of the production process do you find the most difficult and what comes easiest for you? When you do hit a creative block what helps you through it?
I feel that the most difficult is when I decide to terminate my track . as always they look me or still born superfluous ideas, but it is important to know where I’m going with the track , and the easiest part is to give play to the track Once finished… HAHA .
Creativity really helps when one is totally inspired, and , I’m an artist at that time to work always feels inspired , I do nothing forced , much less do something just to do it.
5. What’s a normal day like for you? Do you have a job outside of electronic music? And what do you like to do when you’re not working on music?
Well , I usually stay up until the early hours of the morning , I consider myself a night owl, so awake to do paperwork , cook with which I enjoy doing it and then distribute my day in , search for music, spend time alone , I like reading, writing , being with friends and nurture things that inspire me
