Looking back, what were some of your earliest entries into music appreciation? And music production?

Earlier, I wrote the music no different from the other ordinary performers of the garage scene, not very high quality. It wasn’t until the beginning of 2019 then I began to quietly grow and discover the sound of which I dreamt.

What inspired you to start making the electronic music that you are now?

Music from musicians: Burial, Volor Flex, Irrelevant, AtsuBox.

What key pieces of gear/software are you using to define your sound?

I write music in Fl Studio 12.05,  I also have not expensive but good quality headphones “Phillips SHP2500”, Mixer Freeboss Pro-fx8 (For recordings microphones and my synths), Synth Korg Monologue, Sampler Yamaha-su200, Rack effects processor Proel Zetaverb, Children Synth Casio (I only use his with my effects processor).

Has your arsenal of equipment changed much since you first started?

Yes, I’m starting to write music on a very small and slow laptop (he made me very nervous), but in 2018 I start to build a computer and now all is okay.

Which three albums or artists would you say have influenced your sound in a big way?

Burial – ‘Burial’ (2006), Boards Of Canada – ‘Music Has Right To Children’ and The Prodigy – ‘The Fat Of The Land’.

Any new or upcoming artists on your radar?

I have collabs with my friends, but now I want to make music in style jungle-90s, and to write his first album in the style of jungle.

What inspires you outside of music?

Neon lights on the street at night, walking with my current girlfriend, sounds of real-world, black & white atmosphere photo.

What do you want to accomplish with your music?

Now I want to achieve the eldest of sounding rave culture 90s in their tracks, start doing real jungle music 90s, revive all of this and show current youth what such realistically is good music.

What, in your opinion would be the perfect genre fusion?

Oldschool sounds with dark tones, jungle rhythms, acid synths, more atmospherics sounds, and more live sounds.

What can we expect from you in the near future? Any upcoming projects or releases in the pipeline that you would like to tell us about?

I have no special plans, just one goal. Achieve a steep and the right jungle 90s.
