Who are you inspired by?
What inspires me really is the positive energies & some cool music and emotional one like Manse’s tracks, Kaaze, Suyano
How did you get started & what were your difficulties in starting music production?
What made start producing is the ideas I had in my mind like ” How do they make this & that, is it difficult” basically it was just the curiosity and what it really made start & go on in the EDM scene it’s a trio that we all know for sure (Swedish House Mafia), and about the difficulties I had in the music production, there are many to be honest, I started in 2013/2014 and it was hard, to be honest, to find masterclasses or videos to help you go further, so it was a bit hard for me but if you want something you should work hard to learn it and that’s what I did, I kept grinding and looking for everything that can help even just small stuff.
Please explain your creative process, like how do you start making a track or what do you do to get an idea to start a new track?
The process in making a track or start an idea is very simple, to be honest, I just open my daw and start playing with chords and imagine how I want the track to be and I keep going, and sometimes I try to listen to lots of tracks to get some fresh ideas and get my ears clean mixing wise
What is the story behind your artist name?
This is the most question I get every time, the story behind it is that I didn’t take the name, my friend did I was asking him what should I do and this & that, and he came up with it! (Shoutout to QAAYEL!)
What are your favorite genres?
Progressive House for sure, Groove, Indie dance, and some original Pop
Who are your favorites, I mean artists?
My favorite artists are the ones that inspire me (KAAZE, MANSE, and SUYANO)
What is your favorite part of this line of work? Your least favorite? Why?
It’s the people in it, and how you can make your fans/family/friends happy with your music also the positive people that are pushing you to make cool tracks and keep working hard!
Is there a hidden meaning in any of your music?
A lot of hidden meanings, If you can go and start listening to from the first release of 2018 till now, you will understand how my life was going and every song you gonna find lyrics that are so me and how I lived that month or day! it’s more like an ep.
Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans?
I’m not that type of guy that ignore his fans or tell them to send their stuff on my mail, I just love to talk with them and know how they think about my music and try to get their friend or whatever. I just love talking with my fans, because without them I wouldn’t be doing this interview! LOVE YOU GUYS!
What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?
The only advice I can give is that No matter what and no matter who that want to stop you or drag you down, just ignore them and make him regret it when he sees you in a big place and doing it right. WORK HARD, DREAM BIG
