We love the warm atmosphere you've delivered within your single, "Ven Ya." What inspired you to venture off into the world of Latin-infused EDM for this single?

What inspired me to venture into the Latin music world was seeing how big Latin music has grown over the past years. I wanted to bring something and fresh for my audience and many new listeners as I experiment with a new genre. I wanted “Ven Ya” to be special for the summer and I’m proud that I was able to do it.

Could you tell us who the vocalist is on your single "Ven Ya"? Why did you want to add a female's vocal to the track, was it the missing piece to the puzzle that is single?

The vocals on the track are from vocal samples I’ve been able to chop up and make sentences out of from sample packs producers can go online and use. I’ve of course have always put my own twist on vocals that I use by breaking down sentences using different sounds to make the vocals stand out as I’ve done on my past songs. It was a great piece to the puzzle in my eyes. Absolutely proud of how the vocals came out!

Could you break down your creative process behind "Ven Ya," and how you went about tweaking the production to deliver this warm Latin-inspired atmosphere?

After being able to work on chopping up sentences with the vocals I also worked on the drums by setting the whole track at 100bpm to give it a summer vibe pattern with hi-hats, kicks, snares, and more instruments in between that you hear come and go which is always fun to experiment with, especially with a new genre. I’ve used different effects and filters as well.

Seeing as many notable DJs and Producers have downloaded your music, why do you think your music has been so successful thus far? What do you bring to the table that other DJs/Producers lack? We would say versatility. 

It’s great to see some of the world's biggest DJs download my music. There are people I’ve looked up to and seeing that my music is out there makes me want to keep pushing and promoting. Promotion and versatility have always been a must for me and my music that why I truly believe I bring much more to the table than other DJs and artists. Being able to make dancehall, r&b, rap, EDM, Trap, Grime, Latin, and being this versatile is something tons of other artists lack in this industry if I’m being truly honest.

What has been your biggest source of inspiration while creating new music this year?

My biggest source of inspiration has been me listening to Latin music for a while now and I’ve always been a fan of Bad Bunny, Anuel AA, Ozuna, Nicky Jam, Daddy Yankee, and more. It’s great to see other DJs like Major Lazer, DJ Snake, and others work with Latin music too, for me, that’s my inspiration for my music in 2020.
