Thank you for taking this interview! How has the New Year been for you so far as an artist?
The New Year has been a tough one, I think we have all had the struggle of prices going up on things we wouldn't think of, it's just a matter of making sure that the bills are still paid etc. However music wise, I have been experimenting a lot more with my music and with the pandemic not being as much of an issue these days, I am also now able to get out and about, meet new people and share my music with them.
Can you tell us how you've transformed from the beginning to now as an artist?
At first I wasn't really able to come up with very many creative ideas, I have aspergers syndrome (Autism) and ADHD which makes it incredibly hard to focus on the creative aspect of making music.
However in recent years, after buying every plugin that I felt was necessary, I have found I am able to create some more interesting tracks nowadays, right now my music is in what I would call, an experimental stage, after all, if you don't know what works and doesn't, best way is to experiment until you find what works.
I Was also heavily influenced by artists such as Porter Robinson, Alan Walker K-391 and Ahrix among others.
In addition to this, after my release "Northern Lights" which was released December 15th 2021, which was supported by a fair few artists, my career quickly took off. It became a popular song on most if not all platforms.
It was when Distant Galaxies was released However that really changed it for me. Distant Galaxies was the first of my experimental tracks, and was supported by none other than NCS Artist, Four Eyes. Distant Galaxies was released April 22nd 2022.
How did you come up with your latest project?
I heard what other artists were doing such as porter robinson (his music can be described as quite chaotic at times and also experimental), Alan Walker and K-391 (the plucks are inspired by their original styles in the past.) I wanted to create something that feels unique and different that would also later become a style I can work from in future releases.
Where are you from originally?
I am from Waterlooville, England, UK
Where do you live now?
I also live in Waterlooville, England, UK However maybe in the future I may decide to move to Norway to be with my girlfriend, Ada Akimov.
Do you think where you live impacts how your music is made?
I don't believe my area has a huge impact on how my music is made, at the end of the day, I believe anyone can make music if they feel they are able to, no matter if you have a disability or not.
What was the inspiration to make music your career?
My main inspiration to make music my career was the thought of one day inspiring people to want to create music themselves. I also went through a hard time where I was bullied for who I was, and to be honest with you, that made me want to prove them wrong, and prove them wrong. But my main message to people would be, Ignore people who say you can't follow your dreams, you make your dreams, you can make them reality, you can follow them and eventually success will follow you too.
How do you want to shape your career?
I actually intend to shape my career by experimenting a lot more with my music, I've said in previous videos on YouTube, mixing genres and experimenting with music is key when it comes to creativity in music. From there I would like to be releasing on a major record label, MER possibly being my favourite choice right now, seeing how well they have handled Alan's releases.
Do you work on a tight timeline always or do you go with the flow when it comes to your music?
I actually tend to just go with the flow, restricting music to a timeline adds stress to your life which isn't something you need, it can also lead to creator burnout. This is why I prefer to work at my own pace when producing new music.
How did your latest title of your music come to be?
So when listening to the track, I kinda felt as though the track was kinda space themed and it kinda hit me when I heard the plucks played back, that this could be something related maybe with Galaxies, therefore I called it Distant Galaxies.
Is it hard to let go of the music when it is done?
If you are meaning to release it for example then I find it easy to release
those tracks after it is finished / done. I tend to release anything I've made because at the end of the day I want to share my music with the world and be proud of what I have achieved.
Do you feel an emotional attachment with your music?
I would definitely say it does feel that way, my music tends to express personal feelings or interests that I may have. Once I start listening to a track, I have to try and resist the urge to listen on repeat.
How would you describe your music in one word to someone who hasn't listened to it yet?
Where do they go to listen NOW?
So my music so far is doing very well on platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, Tidal, Amazon Music Unlimited, Deezer, Audius, Soundcloud, Pandora Music so I would definitely say that is where most people will listen to my music.
They can also find all my music with this link:
What has been the best fan reaction to your music?
I think the best fan reaction I had was on discord where someone actually DM'd me and wanted to hear my music, so I sent them the link and they said they felt inspired to create music themselves based off of what they heard.
Is there anything exciting coming up for you?
I have a couple of potential big releases coming up, one called "Flux" which I'm excited about, it is a lot more experimental than Distant Galaxies, and also "Fragments" which is my first attempt at a Drum & Bass release. Ideally I would like to get at least one of those releases signed by a major label.
Are you performing the song anywhere LIVE?
As of right now, I don't perform my music but I am looking into this as a possibility in the future, who knows!
Although I will also say that I am starting to do regular live streaming now on Twitch where I stream music production as it is happening.
Give us all your socials and links so fans can link up with you! Thank you for this interview!
