How do you describe your genre of music?
Honestly it’s a few things but it’s represented with a few different sounds. To the softer side of things I’m inspired soul, pop and R&B. The harder stuff is more hyphy, trap and bounce music.
Where did you come up with the concept for the song “No Sleep”?
“No Sleep” was created with “love” in mind but from the perspective of a person trying to convince that “he’s” the better situation for her and get out the “friend zone”
What is your collaborative process like?
To collaborate with Plænet Wün was so super cool, great writers and producers so to work with people like them really helped me bring this track to life.
Which artists are your biggest influences?
A wide range of artist and producers I take elements from I’m a big fan of N.E.R.D., Kanye West, Justice, Flosstradamus and Kaskade to name a few.
What has been the highlight for your DJ career so far?
Being on tour has been something I really enjoyed. Just being able to play in front of people and connect with them has been big for me.
What are your plans like for the rest of 2017 and beyond?
Just work and more work. I would like to put out a lot more music and some visuals.
Anything you’d like your fans to know?
Stay committed and honest with yourself, have fun and love hard. We only get one life.
