Tell us a little bit about your new song ‘Higher Baby’. How did this song come alive?
To be honest – I had a huge hangover the day, I wrote the piano drop. It was a Sunday and i was just messing around with some piano sounds. Well, this is what came out.
What inspired you?
I just love the sound of piano on house music.That in addition of good weather outside and a shuffled snare drum made me build this track.
Where did you get this vocal from?
It’s actually custom made. I built it to fit the track I took a 10 second sample of a woman singing “Oh yeah hey baby” and chopped the sh*t out of it, pitched it, reversed the chops and so on and on and on.
How did you get into producing electronic dance music/house music?
I’ve been making music since around 10 years. Back then I was playing the guitar in some metal bands but I always listened to other music genres as-well, so I was that guy with a laptop on stage and always tried to bring some electronic elements in to the songs – that was the beginning.Now just since December last year I’m producing house music regularly.
What is your VST plugin or instrument to use?
KORG M1 and Spire
What can we expect from you in 2016?
A lot of cool new tunes i guess!
