So with the new single available to stream now, we sat down with him to find out more about his origins and what has been inspiring him most lately.


What was the first instrument you fell in love with?

I’ve been in the choir my entire childhood and have always been fascinated by the human voice. But love is a strong word, and I must say the moment I fell in love with an instrument was my first lesson with a digital dium. The Roland hpd10 that I still have in my studio. It was the instrument that started the journey into electronic music.

What kind of music did you love when you were younger?

I was a big rock fan, classic rock. And my first ever concert was: in flames.

What was the first album you remember owning?

My first cd I ever owned was a collection CD of Queen.

What is the one song you wished you could have written yourself?

Honestly never thought about this before, feels a bit weird stealing someone else’s work haha. But I think Fred Again.. hit something special with: we’ve lost dancing.

Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?

I tend to imagine a vibe or situation or feeling I’ve been in and translate that vibe into sound. How do I get you to feel the same way through sounds? And also, no idea is a bad idea in the beginning! The process needs to be fun too!

Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?

Been listening a lot to Elderbrook, Avaion and Bunt. Also been watching Ortopilot live streaming a lot lately.

If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?

At the moment I must say Fred Again.. he seems to have so much fun!

What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?

The people! Being in the same room as someone and talking but without words.

And what is the most frustrating part?

Troubleshooting, for sure!! Always a cable not cooperating or a software update haha.

And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?

It’s a marathon not a sprint! You can have fun during the journey too.
