Could you describe the specific moment or experience in Spain that inspired “Dime Que” and how it shaped the song’s lyrics and overall feel?
In the evening, I always listened to Latin music. Think sea, sun, and beach – it’s like the recipe for a summer song. There wasn’t one specific moment, but a lot of good memories. So, it’s really this mix of the music and the whole Spanish atmosphere that got me in the mood for “Dime Que.” It’s my way of capturing a bit of that Spanish magic and sharing it through my music.
Choosing to release this single in Spanish, a language connected to your origins, how did this decision affect the song, and did it present any distinctive artistic challenges or opportunities for you?
Every song comes with its set of challenges, regardless of the language. When it came to releasing this single in Spanish, it was more about embracing a part of my roots and adding a different flavor to my music. I’ve been fortunate to receive positive feedback, which is super encouraging. You can definitely expect to hear more Spanish songs from me in the future.
Though you began with visual artistry and hip-hop production, you later gravitated toward electronic dance music. What particular aspects of EDM captivated you, and how do they influence your current creative process?
EDM is a world of its own, and it captivated me for a few reasons. One, it’s incredibly versatile. There’s this vast playground for producers to explore within the genre, and that’s super exciting creatively. Plus, it’s not just about production – I’m a big fan of EDM in my personal listening time too. That connection with the music on a personal level plays a big role in influencing my creative process.
Could you provide more insight into your sound design process and how you choose the elements that best suit your tracks?
My sound design process is really guided by my instincts. It’s all about that gut feeling – some sounds just click better with me than others, and it really depends on the overall structure and vibe of the song. You see, there’s no fixed formula for creative work. It’s this dynamic, intuitive process where you explore different elements and see how they fit together to create the desired atmosphere. It’s like painting a canvas with sounds, and it’s often the unexpected combinations that bring out the magic in a track.
Are there any specific techniques or production methods you’ve recently explored that have had a significant impact on your music?
With every new track I tackle, there’s always something new to learn. In the case of this song, I’d say it was the drums that really grabbed my attention, and left a significant impact on my music.
Could you provide a sneak peek of your upcoming release? What can we anticipate in terms of sound and theme?
Absolutely, I’ve got a new EDM track on the horizon, and this time, it’s in English. I don’t want to give away too much just yet, but I can promise it’s something special. I’d say the best way to experience it is to tune in on September 29th. Trust me, it’ll be worth the wait, and I can’t wait to share this exciting new sound and theme with all of you!
Earlier, you stated your aim to collaborate with two accomplished singers and songwriters by the end of the year. Can you share any names you have in mind, and have you made progress on this mission?
