How did you first get into electronic music?
The first time I heard electronic music in the late 90’s on the tape, absolutely without any description and markings. A little later I bought my first CD – it was a hard trance mix from the UK label Tidy, which determined my further development.
What do you consider “true progressive”?
For me true progressive is a message to the audience. This is more than music, I really can’t explain the effect created when listening a tracks of the late 90s and early 2000s – this is magic. Today is difficult to find similar music, but there are very good tracks even in techno.
True progressive is a way of life and thinking outside the box.
What do you think makes a track or a DJ mix exceptional?
Good atmosphere is important for any track I think. It is difficult to create exceptional track with a specific pattern – years will pass and people will forget about it. The same thing are suitable for DJ mix.
What do you find most important when you are producing a track?
One of the most important thing is reaching the right balance when mixing. Some of my projects I did for several months, endlessly changing sounds, instruments and effects. However, sometimes I’m finishing a track for just 1 day, so the second important thing is the right attitude and a good mood.
What do you hope to communicate through your music?
The situation of electronic dance music is ambiguous. It’s quite far from the truth what is now called progressive house. The abundance of manufactured packs with loops and construction kits, a plethora of videos like “how to make a track in 20 minutes” and the transition from vinyl to digital has done its job – music market is full of an unknown tracks and artists.
My goal is simple – to convey to the listener the high-quality material, positive emotions and, of course, the true progressive house music.
