Thank you for sitting down with us today! To start, we want to know how exactly did your collaboration with Sarah De Warren, who lives across the world, get started?
Thank you for having me, excited to share! Sarah and I were introduced remotely by a label owner in Nashville. He has worked with Sarah for quite sometime, and suggested it would be great for us to connect as according to his words Sarah and I have similar qualities such as work ethic, creativity and passion for music. The first time Sarah and I ever FaceTimed we had the greatest conversation, lots of laughs and it took off from there.
What were some of the biggest challenges you came across, collaborating with someone that you couldn’t physically sit down with?
I didn’t really feel like we’ve encountered any big challenges with this particular track, I produced the track sent it to Sarah with no instructions, and she did her thing just right! The work flow was smooth. Um…maybe the time difference haha?
What was the most important thing you learned from the collaboration experience with Sarah De Warren?
I once again realized how important it is to not interfere with the other artist’s creative process, just let them do what they are good at, because that’s the reason why I wanted to make music with Sarah in the first place.
How has your technical music experience as a violinist affected your production in the dance sphere?
I believe that my classical background as a violinist is helping me to create great melodies as well as add more emotion to my tracks and DJ sets. Violin is my language that I use to communicate with people’s hearts and make them feel through their emotions.
Are there any other instruments or genres you plan to venture into?
I always produce and collaborate on projects of various genres with artists of different backgrounds. As for my original tracks I’ll be dropping a G-house track next. I always wanted to explore this branch of house music, but to do it in my own way – making it more feminine by adding beautiful violin solos. It was challenging but I’m happy with how it turned out. Can’t wait to share!
What are your plans for the rest of 2020?
On a personal level, 2020 is teaching me a lot of things. Some of the most important ones is to go with the current, be in the now and trust the process. Therefore I’m not doing too much of solid planning and will continue to devote my time to music creating. With that being said, I’m excited to release new originals and keep on producing new music till the end of the year, and beyond!
