Hey Andrew! Thank you so much for taking the time and interviewing with Electric Vibes. Our readers will be so excited!
Thank YOU for having me!
What makes Creamfields different then a US festival?
Creamfields has its own experience to be honest, rather than any other festival in the world, which is why it makes it different. People are always ready to dance and enjoy new music.
What made you want to be a DJ/ Producer?
My love and passion towards music, I really wanted to share my vision with the entire world, and maybe inspire others, why not …
Do you have any rituals you do before a set? If so what brought those around?
Not really…I mean it’s always me and my tour manager, hanging around backstage, getting the energy of the venue and getting ready to hit the stage! However I always have my lucky bracelet with me on tour which is kind of like a ritual if you want.
Who in the industry inspires you most?
At the moment: Armin Van Buuren, Axwell & Ingrosso, and Hans Zimmer to a name a few.
With all the different genres that are coming up, how do you view the trance crowd? Is it growing or shrinking?
No genre will shrink, I believe in evolution, and that is things will evolve…nothing will reaming the same or else nothing will advance in life…sounds will change, just like technology, and that’s part of life you know…so it all depends on how people open there mind and if they take it in a positive or negative way it will affect any genre not just trance if that genre grows or shrinks.
Do you see yourself branching out and crossing over to other genres down the road?
Trance will always be my genre and what is close to my heart…I will always keep saying that.
However, experimenting and trying new sounds is not a bad thing…as an artist you really have to try new things in order to grow, and good music is just good music, it’s what it should be all about.
Is there an artist you would like to work with?
Hopefully another collab with Armin Van Buuren, or even a collab with another big idol of mine Hans Zimmer and of course I’m always open minded to work with lots of other names, which I’m already working on, you’ll be finding more info about that very soon!
As a DJ/Producer, do you have any goals you have for yourself?
To grow as an artist and to achieve as many accomplishments as I can, to share my music with as many people as I can and bring the love to them.
If you could play anywhere in the entire world, where would it be and why?
I think it would be my home country, Moldova! There’s no better place than home. People there always supported me and every time I play there the crowd is just epic!
A fun question non music related. If you could be a Superhero which one would you be and why?
Probably Ironman, I’m a big fan of technology and robots, and that red Ironman suit looks awesome!
Thank you so much again for taking the time to interview! We greatly appreciate it and look forward to your upcoming set at Creamfields!
