Hi, thanks for talking to us. How are you today and what’s going on in your world right now?
Hi, I´m fine thanks. This was a great year for me – I was playing in Croatia, which is a beautiful country and my new single was released on Kaisen Records.
You’ve recently released a new single by the name of ‘Time Goes By’. How did this project come about?
I changed my style from Progressive to Deep House and I was searching for a new sound. So ‘Time Goes By’ was the first track showcasing my new style.
How would you describe this single in terms of sound and style?
‘Time Goes By’ is a distinctive Deep House track with a smooth breakdown and a catchy synth melody in the drop parts. Perfect for the club!
What got you inspired for this one?
I was inspired by other Deep House artists like EDX, Nora en Pure and Croatian Squad.
How long did it take to finalise this single?
Not very long actually, 2 or 3 weeks I think. As I finished the drop part all became very quick.
Could you walk us through the production process behind ‘Time Goes By’?
Before TGB I had several ideas of how my new style should sound. Finally I decided not to follow other artists and to create something new and fresh by combining several styles which can be found in my DJ set. So this song is a combination of all that I love about House music. The hardest part was to find the right instruments for this track, whilst the melody was easy. I´m not good at mastering so I gave it to Kaisen Records and they did a great job.
Which key plug-ins and sounds shaped the end result of this production?
I used a mix between Deep and Tropical elements by choosing exotic timbales as well as classic Piano sounds supported by a deep sub bass-line.
What kind of other developments do you predict after this release?
After the TGB release I worked on a score for the movie called ‘Mike’ – this movie was a school project. It was interesting work and it was completely different from all I´ve done before. You can check out the trailer on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaBAma4Hay8
‘Time Goes By’ got signed by Kaisen Records – how did you spark a relationship with this label?
I knew Kaisen because of Yuga. I like his tracks and I was sure this record label would give me the best support. It is important for a producer, having a label, which believes in his artists and help their build up.
Where would you imagine this single being played?
This song can be played everywhere. I´m sure, it works in clubs, bars, festivals and even in the radio.
Describe ‘Time Goes By’ in one word.
Why should people listen to ‘Time Goes By’?
Time changes, so does the music. I will show how the time goes by in life and what decisions we made in our life. That´s what my track stands for – everything changes, everything moves as the time goes by.
Do you have any other projects in the pipeline in the next few months?
Right now I´m working on several tracks. Stay tuned for more.
Thanks a lot Liquid Cosmo!
