What first drew you into music?
I started playing piano and electric guitar casually when I was in elementary school. During high school I fell in love with edm through deadmau5 and skrillex. I was like “I need to make music like that.”
Your track “janguru” is absolutely amazing! How did you achieve such a great signature sound in such a short time? Also, what is your creative process like?
Well I’ve been making electronic music since 2013 so I’ve had a lot of time to find my “sound”. I’ve listened to many musicians so I pull inspiration from all of them. When I first started I would try to replicate the style of musicians I looked up to. Every time I approach a song I try to imagine making a videogame sound track, so you’ll find most of the sounds in my songs sound like they would belong in a videogame.
Going over your Soundcloud we can tell you love experimenting with new sounds. Can you tell us more about your studio setup and some of your favorite plugins/instruments?
My studio is pretty simple. I use my laptop. monitor speakers, a midi keyboard, mic, and my electric guitar. I make most of the sounds In FL studio through plugins such as Harmor, Sylenth1, and 3xosc. I mess with a lot of soundfonts to recreate real instruments such as violins, choirs, etc.
Your music sounds very organic and authentic. Do you play any real-life instruments?
They only real instrument I play in most of my songs is my electric guitar and ukulele.
What are your musical goals for the future?
I’m trying to release music more often. I tend to go back and forth between adding my own vocals to my songs which usually take a longer time to produce compared to instrumental songs like Januru. I’m hoping in the future I’ll be able to release music on a monthly basis. I have some new labels I want to release with.
What are your goals for the coming months? Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
I have a song coming out on new years featuring my voice and my guitar. I have a bunch of wips just about ready to be completed.
