What first drew you into music production and chill/future chill in particular?
I started to learn to play guitar in music school 11 years ago, and piano by myself 6 years ago, so I’m interested by music for a pretty long time. I started to produce music 4-5 years ago, when I started to be interested by the electronic music world. I asked myself:“how is electronic music made ?”, I did some research on Google and I downloaded FL Studio, that’s how it started.
I started to produce chill and future chill music because it’s my personality. Before I was searching my style, so I tried a lot of different genres, but the one who correspond the most to me is this. I’m someone with a pretty nostalgic, melancholic character, so making this genre is just like me expressing myself.
Coming from France, one of Europe’s most active clubbing cultures, do you have any favorite clubs or festivals you can recommend to our readers?
I don’t really know clubs to recommend, but I can recommend a festival: Les Vieilles Charrues, which is one the biggest festival in France. It takes place in Carhaix, in Britain, every year in July for 4 days, and it’s a really good festival. A lot of great artists came here, like Flume, Kygo, Macklemore, Lana Del Rey..
Going over your Soundcloud we can tell you love making lots of different genres! Which genre is your favorite to produce?
My favorite genre is the one I actually do, chill/future chill, with some Japanese influences (For the moment, only Until We Die correspond to that, but some things are coming).
Your latest track “Until We Die” is your best track in our opinion! From its artwork to the Incredibly powerful sound we absolutely love it. Could you tell us more about the story behind this track? Also, what is your creative process like?
Thank you very much, I’m glad you like it! When I started this track I was in a melancholic mood, so I was just expressing myself through music. I also wanted to add something personal, so I used my origins (I’m half Japanese), and it gives the actual result, a chill track with Japanese influences.
I usually start by finding the chords, and then a melody. After that, I add a beat, which will gives me a loop. I will listen it several times, like that I will have a vision of what I want, and how I can turn the track.
What are your musical goals for the future?
I would like to continue to produce this chill genre of music with japanese influences, and try to make it more “influent”. Also, I would like to, why not, start mixing or doing live performances in clubs, festivals.. And of course, to make music a living.
What do you have planned for 2019? Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
I have a lot of track in coming, some collaborations with good artists, singers.. I’m also experimenting new genres with some of these upcoming tracks, still with the Japanese chill atmosphere, but with some new elements, combination of genres.. To make something pretty unique.
