Thanks for joining us today. Where are you writing to us from, and what have you been up to over the last few weeks?
Thank you for having me today. I’m currently writing to you from Barcelona, Spain, where I moved eight months ago. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been in the studio finishing the 2024 releases. It’s been a busy but rewarding time, and I’m excited to be here and enjoy Barcelona!
Tell us about your journey into music and what led you to this point.
My journey into music began 20 years ago with the first computer my parents gave me. Hearing electronic music on the radio and facing a lack of electronic music records in my city, I decided to create the music I wanted to hear. Since then, I’ve been exploring and evolving my passion for music creation.
How do you effectively promote yourself as an artist?
In today’s landscape, everything has changed. It’s not just about having the support of major artists, big labels or promoters; it’s also about effectively using social media, TikTok, and Twitch and staying updated on emerging platforms. Nowadays, people want to know more about artists, not just listen to their music.
Tell us about your latest release.
“I’m thrilled about my latest remix for ‘Bamboleo’. I felt truly inspired during my time in the studio and am genuinely satisfied with the result.
What has the feedback been like from your latest release?
I’m excited about the feedback! Mihai Popoviciu, Jamie Jones, Mason Collective, James Dexter, Late Replies, Ammo Avenue, AJ Christou, Proudly People, Nacho Bolognani, Joseph Capriati, Township Rebellion, Audiojack, Ruben Mandolini, and Paco Osuna, to name a few!
How do you take care of your mental health?
I prioritize my mental health by attending therapy weekly. I also practice honesty about my needs and what it takes to improve. It’s a gradual process that requires patience and hard work. I stay focused on my goals and avoid comparing my journey to others.
What is your biggest goal this year, and how close are you to achieving it?
My biggest goal this year was to sign with Knee Deep in Sound, Hot Since 82’s label, and I’m excited to share that it’s happening! ‘Between the Lines’ will be released in February 2024, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.
Lastly, what can we expect from you in the future?
I can’t disclose details during this interview, but I can confirm an upcoming release next year with what, in my opinion, is the number one breakthrough label in the scene. Stay tuned, and you’ll find out more very soon.
Sauvage Back - No Sleep EP (incl. LondonGround Remix) is available from 15th December 2023 via Bamboleo Records.
