What Musical Genre Do You Feel Best Describes Your Music And How Would You Describe Your Sound?
EDM, Dubstep and Synthwave most of the time. My music is rather energetic, melodic, powerful, mellow and dreamy. It can express joy or sadness through various instruments. Sometimes the atmosphere becomes dark.

I used my imagination. I looked for a name and I found it at home.
What Are or Have Been Your Musical Influences?
Depeche Mode, Muse, Bloc Party, Netsky, Feint, Fred V & Grafix, Dimension, Koven, Noisestorm, Porter Robinson, Madeon, Marshmello, Skrillex, San Holo, Andy C, Delta Heavy, Pegboard Nerds, Two Steps From Hell (epic music) and other artists. I listened mostly to electronic music.
What Are You Working On Now? Any Future Collaborations We Can Look Forward To?

What Is Your Ultimate Goal In The Music Industry? What Is Your Plan Of Action?
To share great music with people who like it and to develop a source of income. I want to grow my SoundCloud and Spotify profiles first. I am open to new opportunities.

Getting radio quality sound has been a big challenge. My first songs had nothing to do with the music I produce now…

I don’t really have a typical process. I can start making a song from a vocal sample, a drum sample, a melody or a chord progression.

What Would You Change In The Music Industry If You Were A Top Music Executive?
It’s hard to say. Maybe provide more assistance to new artists.
How Do You Feel About Originality?
Originality is important to stand out as an artist. I think that I still have many things to experiment with, and new paths to explore. And I would say not to focus too much on the originality at the beginning.

The piano is one of my favorite instruments, I play it from time to time.
My website may be subject to change (content and design).
Apart from music, physical and mental health is a subject that means a lot to me.
And I’d also like to add that my parents aren’t musicians.
