He did not disappoint.
Enjoy, like and share.

We spoke to him about music and his choice of film.
When did you start producing and what or who were your early passions and influences?
I started around 2001. There is a lot of influences from different genres since I started listening to hardcore, grunge, funk, and reggae in the 90’s. Then there was the house/techno experience, jungle, trip hop, hip hop, breakbeat and everything else that followed. I always enjoyed listening to all types of music and following the cultures so I wanted to contribute something myself.
What makes producing interesting for you?
It’s being in the moment, playing with sound. I forget about everything else. It’s inspiring what we can do with technology, sampling and turning something into a new piece.
What do you usually start with when preparing for a new track?
It depends. I used to start with drums, now I start with a sample to get the main theme going.
Great FiLMiX by the way. Can you talk about the process? How did you select the tracks, decide on a theme?
I already had few tracks selected to start with. After I decided on one, I had in mind that I’m doing Waking Life and everything else just fell into place.
And why did you choose Waking Life as your film? Are you a fan?
I like the movie because it portrays different reality tunnels. Each of them is handling the human experience in it’s own way according to his reality tunnel. There is talk about existentialism, predetermination, introspection, lucid dreaming and there’s a speech about the system of corporatocracy, media manipulation and control. I could say the film is about identifying yourself as the observer, but it’s much more than that.
What films are you into? What are your favourites?
I love sci-fi. I can say all adaptations from Philip K Dick’s work are great. A Scanner Darkly is my favourite. Impostor and Blade Runner have similar themes, and accidentally watching the beginning of Impostor the second time was interesting.
Under The Skin is probably on the top of my chart at the moment. I should also mention Dark City and Twelve Monkeys. Other than sci-fi The Budapest Grand Hotel, Bowfinger, The Big Lebowski, Bad Santa and the work of Tarantino.
Do films influence your producing at all?
Subconsciously they affect us all, but I try to build my music from my inner TV.
Anything coming up in the future?
Working on few tracks at the moment.
