Biography

MUSIC, MUSIC & MUSIC!

The power which keeps my motor running. A world without music would be devastating for me!

That’s why i spend most of my time working, listening and discovering new music. Mixing and producing for the last couple of years has become such a big part of my live and i truely enjoy every second of it. Working with Labels such as My Favourite Freaks, Decay, KMS, Serkal, Frequenza, Traum Schallplatten, Insert Coin, Be One, Innocent Music and many more is truly an honor and reward for the hard work in the studio.

Developing my own labels Antura Records and Convention and for the past four years was a lot of fun and of course plenty of hard work. I gotten to know some really great persons during that time and looking forward to meet many interesting people in the future. Hopefully the Antura Label Group will continue to grow and thrive for years to come behind all the love and passion i put into these projects.

Interview

Hello mate!  How Are You? What do you have scheduled for today?
Hi guys, I’m doing good, thanks! Today i’m in the studio, finishing a new remix for Mr. Chuck called „All About House Music“ which will be released on Kevin Saunderson’s KMS Records. As the track name says, this one is going to be a really catchy techy House tune with a lot of positive energy. After that, I have to do some label work. Currently searching for a solid remixer for the upcoming releases on my record label Antura.

Please tell us a bit about your latest releases!
Of course my release with you guys called „Let Them Break“. Really happy about that one! Then i have  a ep called „Mind Black“ which is a collab with my Columbian mate Luis Martinez. It’s available on London based Decay Records with two amazing remixes from Paradise favourite Robert James and Oblack Label bosses Los Pastores. Also available now my release on Sebastian Ledher’s Play Groove Recordings incl. Gianni Firmaio remix and a remix i did with Sebastian Ledher for K.A.M.A. called Underworld, which is available on Antura.

Which release was the one who gave you the most attention so far?
I think there were quite a few, the release on Ramon Tapia’s Say What? Records, the track on Traum Schallplaten and my release with my mate Pedro Costa on Low Groove which climbed up in the top 10 on Beatport!

Tell us a bit about your upcoming releases! Is there anything special planned?
I have an EP on New York based Serkal which will be released digitally and also on vinyl – can’t wait for this one, it’s always a special thing for me, releasing on vinyl. There is also one single-collab from me with Peppe Markese coming out with three big remixes from Sante Sansone, Cele and Makanan on Sergio Fernandez label Insert Coin. After that there will be a Remix on Daniel Selfmade’s label Infamous for Stefano Parenti and the remix for Mr. Chuck on KMS Records. Early 2018 comes my next release on Antura in collab with Alessandro De Tuglie with remixes from Arado and Eskuche. Such a busy time, but I love it (smile)

As you are touring a lot, please tell us something about your experience. What is your favourite city or country and why?
