2018 Rewind: Blaqwell


How was 2018 for you?

Blaqwell: This was great year! Big events, fresh productions, and we signed some great releases to Brobot Records from some quality talent.


So much happened in 2018. Had a few stand-out gigs… Shared the stage with one of my personal favorites, Derrick Carter.

Great time in Mexico playing WHO’s WHO Music Festival with Phil Weeks, Harvard Bass and Brillstein.

I put out some well-received originals and remixes I’m really happy with and my design company, Artikal Creative ,also had its biggest year so far. Definitely feeling good about 2019.


No real lowlights on a personal level. I just wish I’d gotten more done.

Song of the year?

Too tough to call. But there are a few productions that stood out for me.

Shiba San – ‘All I Need’; Marst Paris Detroit Express (Darius Syrossian Remix); Junior Sanchez- ‘Strong Enough’; Demuir – ‘How Beautiful Your Are’; Nic Fanciulli ‘Star’ to name a few.

What’s your New Year’s resolution?

That’s easy: LEARN MORE. DO MORE!
