How old are you, where are you living and how long have you been producing and Djing? What’s the scene like and how often are you playing?
Hannes Bruniic: I’m 43, live in Salzburg (Austria). I started my career 1989 with the age of 16. I prefer techno, which includes different types of music styles like deephouse, techhouse or electronica.
What made you first get in to dance music?
Hannes Bruniic: I was inspired by Jean Michel Jarre, because I was fascinated by his music style which is full of melodic synthesizer sounds. I am still in love with his music and I found my personal way to connect and combine my music with elements of Jean Michel.
How difficult was learning to produce for you in the beginning?
Hannes Bruniic: As I started with making music at the beginning of the 90s it was more work than now. Cause you had to record all instruments separately without a computer. Later I worked with “Cubase” music program. This time I switch between “studio one” and “ableton”. I learned all by myself. I know, that I’m not perfect but I trust in my work and I will learn every day new lessons.

Can you talk us through your DJ setup and mix
Hannes Bruniic: Yes, of course. Sometimes I took my synthesizer with me. But this time it’s easier to take 2 USB – cause it’s better to fly because of the luggage. The set is typical me. Once someone called me “the Master of Melody”. Most important and significant are the melodic elements . The mix includes a brand new track of mine. I hope you enjoy it. My personal music slogan is “A journey into sound” – and that says all about the mix.
What was the real break through point in your career?
Hannes Bruniic: My personal break through was 2011 when I played first time at Club Space Ibiza. To stay in the line up with Carl Cox was unforgettable feeling.

Hannes Bruniic: My number one is “ljubim te Melanie”. A song – made for my wife. Second is “Srecno Pot”. The track is fantastic. A floorfiller and techno bomb. Also “Scrooge” – this one is definitely my way of music. “Sanje” is a cool track. It shows that I’m in love with a lot of music styles and i like to make experiments.
