— DASQ

Tell us about how you initially got started as an electronic music producer/DJ; were there any specific producers or DJs that influenced you artistically?

Well, somewhere around 2006 I was spending a lot of time on computer listening to various electronic music and watching online DJ parties.

Most of the time I was listening to dark techno, minimal and aggressive beats and I was wondering how do they create these alien kinda sounds. When autumn came, I came along with the passion of techno music and started my first track.

In 2008, dark minimal techno become very popular in my area so back then I was visiting very often the clubs in my town.

There was an underground club called “Kremlin” which got my into DJ-ing after I realized that people were dancing on my tracks.

Without giving away any trade secrets, can you tell us what software/hardware you use to produce your music?

At the moment, a laptop, studio headphones, Fruity Loops and a tons of VSTs because I travel worldwide very often.

You’ve mentioned that you have performed at techno underground events. What do you enjoy most about DJing for a live audience and do you have a favorite track or mix to play?

The energy, the same wavelength of love and most of all, the people and the power of techno music. I have many favorite tracks to play.

Tell us about your label Marl Music; why you decided to launch it, and what your goals are for it.

I decided to launch it in order to find and release new talents and to grow the techno music industry.

What are some things/people/places that inspire your creativity when developing new music?

Sci fi movies, reading futuristic articles, happy people, sad people, most of the inspiration comes from my heart.

With 2020 winding down, what are some of your goals musically in 2021, and what do you feel must happen for you to achieve them?

My goals in 2021 is to make more music, and in order to achieve more goals, like playing on big festivals besides underground events, my only enemy is the pandemic. #TechnoPower
