What is new & exciting in your world?
I’m a person extremely curious, what I don’t know I try learn and understand, about music production I’m absolutely self-taught. Thanks to my curiosity since I started to produce music I learned Cubase Logic and Ableton Live. Nowadays I’m constantly watching tutorials about mastering and plug ins to improve my experience, so for me what is new is exciting at the same time.
What do you think are the key things which make 6th Auditorium special?
Don’t know if there is a key but anytime I have to record my show 6th Auditorium I spend a lot of time to select music into a big variety of genres so I have the possibility to be more relaxed, that I can to give to creativity the priority.
What are you most proud of in your 11 years of 6th Auditorium?
I started my show 6th Auditorium in July 2007 with my first project Cassino & Laben and when we got the invitation to have our own show we decided to grab 2 hours into Frisky Radio with the possibility to invite a guest each month, of course to invite well known artists but also new to give them the possibility to show to the world their talent. I like to give space to the new talents because when I started to make music I remember how much difficult and frustrating it was find someone willing to listen to you but when it happened I filled myself with positive energy to continue to concentrate on my music.
What do you enjoy most about creating your show?
What I enjoy most about creating my show is absolutely the complete freedom to select music of any kind, even ambient and downtempo for example, which you can not always do when you play live in front of the dancefloor full of people who want to dance and have fun.
Do you have any favorite producers or labels that you are turning to lately?
In this moment I like a lot of artists but lately the tracks which can not miss in my set are from Rick Pier O’neil, GMJ, Forerunners, Greenage, Subandrio and more. Each of these artists perfectly reflect the sound I like, dark, deep and mysterious elements but at the same time melodic situations that leave you breathless.
