Catching Up With DAMIAN R SANTOS


Catching Up With DAMIAN R SANTOS

What first drew you into music and EDM/Big room in particular?

I started DJing when I was 14 years old with a pair of CDJ and one Mixer. A year later I decided to become a producer and I was trying and looking for the style that best represents me while I continued as a DJ.

At 18 I released my first official release and from that day I continued releasing tracks and making several remixes like the Big Bang (Life In Color Anthem) of Borgeous and David Solano or Louder of Jacob Plant.

There came a time when I stopped to evaluate what I am doing up to that moment and make progress in my music.

This lasted 2 years and now I’m back with a lot of motivation strength and hundreds of new ideas.

Of these ideas “Trump It” was born, with a jazzy sound that has been supported by PBH of PBH & Jack Shizzle.


Your track “Trump it” is very modern and the mixing is amazing! How did you achieve such a great signature sound in such a short time? Also, what is your creative process like?

Thank you for your words about “Trump It” it is very nice and motivating to hear this from you.

“Trump it” was born when I decided to release a different track from the usual Big room / Electro house.

I really love Timmy Trumpet and his sound, so it has inspired me with the trumpet sound of the break and from there I started to try different sounds with which I played like the saxophone or the piano to complete the melody and give it that modern and jazzy touch that you talked about.

It has not been an easy process to reach the final result, I tried many things before I found the sound of “Trump It”.

This is because it’s the first time I’ve tried this fusion and it really has not gone bad.


Coming from Spain do you have any favorite clubbing spots?

Without any doubt Ibiza.

Ibiza has an incredible atmosphere for any lover of electronic music.

Since two years ago I travel once a year to the island and it always inspires me. I go back home with a thousand new ideas, besides enjoying one of the best places in the world as a musical paradise and as a natural paradise.



Your track “Trump it!” is a modern Big Room/Jazz fusion and we wonder if you plan to release more Jazz sounding tracks in the future.

Surely yes It has gone very well so I’ll try more things with this Jazz fusion in the future but I will also continue with the classic Big Room.


What are your musical goals for the future?

I would tell you that people recognize me and act in many places, but rather I see it as a result of hard work not as a goal.

The most important goal is to continue making music as well as possible and that people enjoy it.


What are your goals for the new year, any upcoming projects we can get excited about?

Continue working hard and never stop learning.

I have many projects in my mind that will be coming out in the next months which I hope will have the same great vibrations and energy as “Trump It”.


Thank you so much to you and HBT Magazine for this interview and I hope to talk again with you soon!
