Life Info: Sometimes it’s difficult to have confidence in your own ability, so when people give you positive advice, or opportunities, it’s hard to act upon it and exit your comfort zone. I’ve learned in recent months that if you open yourself up to new experiences and take the chances you’re being offered you can really find yourself in a beautiful position – don’t get scared off by the timing or ‘what ifs’.

My life advice would be to return the knowledge, or the favours, that were once given to you. Be the same kind of person that took the time to reach out to you, or teach you, and help others out if you have something to share.

Life Info: “Art is how we decorate space, music is how we decorate time”

When someone is speaking about a past event or previous point in life, one of the first things that we remember is what music we were listening to at the time. So if you find yourself stressed out, stuck in a day-to-day routine holding down a job or studying for a course, switch up the music you’re listening to. For me there’s nothing better than sitting down for a few hours and digging up some good tunes. It could be just what you need to combat the burdens of modern life.

Track: First U
Location: Luxembourg

Life Info: Talking about an important moment in my life as an artist is surely the first time I heard a Daft Punk tune. I was about 10 years old and Digital Love ran on MTV. I immediately fell in love. I started looking for their other tunes on YouTube and found all their albums followed by Thomas’ solo tracks and Guy-Manuel’s Le Knight Club project. All the disco samples from the 70’s and 80’s combined with funky basslines really impressed me. Probably since then music started to play a major role in my life. I always felt the urge to do what they did. I really love to sample for my own productions while adding a personal touch to it. For my track ‘First U’ I sampled Lone’s masterpiece ‘Jaded’.

Life Info: Never stop trying new things, because you never know when you’ll find what you truly need if you don’t. It’s easy to just settle for something stable and easy, but you’ll most likely feel empty in life if you do this versus going out and trying new things, ultimately having fun.
