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.
I ́m a 25 years old producer/musician from Germany. I’ve started making music in 2011 after I bought my first bassguitar. Some years and being part of different bands later I’ve decided to make my own music after buying my first DAW (Digital Audio Workstation).
I ́ve decided to produce electronic music and started writing my first songs in 2015. After 3 years of learning and growing my skills I’ve released my first album „Changes“ at the end of 2018.
There will be released many more songs in 2019. The first single „Never Stop Running“ was released in April followed by „Endless Space“ in June.
Although my music is mostly in electronic style, a huge number of my tracks are using „real“ instruments like bassguitar, guitar or piano because I really fell in love with this kind of combination.
Provide us with some info about your latest release…
The Song is based on the song „New Genesis“ who was released in 2018 on KCN´s album „Reflections“. At first I only wanted to improve the sound of the song but it changed into something completely new. I’ve changed much of the synthesizer sounds, added some catchy vocals and gave the song a whole new atmosphere.
Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?
The Post Rock Band Mogwai for their atmospheric and experimental sound and a lot of electronic music Genres and Artists (Paul Kalkbrenner, Droeloe for example) are my main influences.
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?
My sound is a dynamic combination of electronic and atmospheric sounds where I also added real instruments like bassguitar, piano or guitar. I ́m using themes from different genres. The specialty of my songs is the feeling I‘m transporting by combining the sounds and the atmospheric voices which give my songs a very passionate style. If you like this passion and special music, you should definitely listen to my songs!

Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
Both. I like the studio for having a lot of time for experiments but since I bought some great equipment for performing my music live, I also enjoy live performing.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
Nothing special yet. I’m still a newbie in the music business.
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
The most unique of my songs is “Endless Space”. I originally wrote it with “KCN” for his album “Reflections”. Since the song was released I’ve grown a lot as a musician and producer and thought about reworking this song with my new skills. I saw this as a new challenge and tried out some things, among others to bring more vocals into my music.
I am very enthusiastic about my result “Endless Space” and would describe it as my best song so far.
Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?
I´m working on many new songs and I also want to play my first live performance this year. To stay tuned and be updated about my new releases or a live concert, follow me on my socials or Spotify!
