What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.

When I was a kid, I never wanted to become a musician. However, I was always playing with instruments and sounds because I enjoyed it. I loved playing and now that I’m on my 30’s I still love to play but the difference is that now I am a professional musician and producer.

Provide us with some info about your latest release…

Beyond is a further step into my current exploration of synthwave sounds.

Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?

I’ve been influenced by industrial/electronic music and classic music (mainly). I also get a big part of my current inspiration out of cyberpunk and retro futuristic aesthetics.

In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?

If you check out my tracks you’ll find variated styles, all electronic, some glitchy and minimalistic, even orchestral. I currently don’t want to stick into a unique style of electronic music because 50L1D is my project for exploration and after some exploration the results are always good.

Please name your 3 desert islands albums, movies & books…

Albums:
NIN – Pretty Hate Machine, Tool – Opiate, KMFDM – Don’t Blow Your Top

Movies:
Blade Runner, Natural Born Killers, Fight Club

Books:
F. Nietzsche – Aurora, P. K. Dick – Ubik, J. L. Borges – Ficciones

Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?

I love both. The studio is a space for me and my partners and collegues, a very intimate space for music creation. Performing live is a fulfilling experience because there occurs a magic connection with the audience. This connection only exists on the stage.

Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?

Not actually.

Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?

Vector 34. Check it out and you’ll find why it is unique.

Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?

I’m probably keep making synthwave. although 2019 is uncertain.

Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…
