Welcome axero only 18 and producing some of best melodic stuff we’ve heard, come take a look into his personal life, production process and everything in between!
HBTMAG: We loved your collaboration with Sterkøl “Can’t let you go”, How was working on the production of the track, How did you two meet?
Axero: First thank you for the kind words! Sterkol contacted me because he loved my track “River” and asked me to do a collaboration with him, I accepted his offer because I think he is a very talented guy. He sent me some piano chords and a saxophone line and I thought it was amazing, I dropped it into abelton and I made the track around what he sent me. Then, he contacted a singer he already knew and we added the vocals to the song. I was really happy with the end result and I’m happy a lot of people like it.
HBTMAG: We noticed that you are a very melodic producer, do you have any classic musical background?
Axero: For me, melody is the most important thing in a track. I don’t have a classic musical background and I didn’t learn
any music theory. Although i have been playing the guitar for 3 years. That’s why I love adding guitar to my tracks. I also play the piano but not at professional level.
HBTMAG: What drew you into edm?
Axero: About 5 years ago, my brother bought his first controllers and he showed me how they work, but I didn’t really like it.One day, he tried to produce his own song and I discoverd how to make music on a computer, and immediately I was fascinated about it. So I can say it’s thanks to my brother that I’m here today.
HBTMAG: When did you start producing EDM?
Axero: I started with production about two and a half years ago.
HBTMAG: We’ve noticed that your style shifted from classic progressive house to a more tropical style, what encouraged the shift?
Axero: Since I started producing, I always liked progressive house but also tropical, when I heared tracks such as “Klingande – Punga”, I knew I want to produce music in a similar style, at first it was so hard, I tried a saxophone plugin but it sounded bad. Later, I had the opportunity to work with a real saxophonist, that’s why I make tropical house music only right now.I don’t want to change my style, I want to be free to produce Progressive or Tropical when I want, the only thing for me is a good melody, I don’t care about the genre too much and I hope my fans understand.
HBTMAG: why did you call yourself “axero” does it have any special meaning?
Axero: Finding an artist name was a real headache for me, I chose Axero because it sounded good to me,
Yet it doesn’t represent anything.
HBTMAG: Given that you are based in Limoges, what do you think about the edm scence in france?
Axero: There are some amazing producers in France such as Madeon, Klingande and many many more… I think The EDM scene in France is nice, although I think we don’t have enough festivals and shows to answer the demand for edm in France.
HBTMAG: What’s the best advice you’d give to an up and coming producer?
Axero: I receive this question very often, I think that hard work is the most important thing for someone who wants to get better at production, Since I started, I have produced more than 150 tracks! I also made a tutorial on youtube for beginner producers.
HBTMAG: any upcoming releases we can get excited about?
Axero: I have so many amazing tracks to finish and I’m so impatient to release them, lately I have been trying to work with more singers and I hope you like the vocals! You can expect Tropical house aswell as Progressive house in my next few tracks.
HBTMAG: Where do you see yourself in 5 years, what are your long term goals?
Axero: I’ll go where the music takes me, I hope it will be at the top, although the most important thing for me is to live off my passion.
