How was 2019 for you?
DJ 3000: The handful of EPs I released in 2019 were all received very well, and I collaborated with some great artists so I’m very grateful for that. Overall, 2019 was a good year for me and predicting 2020 to be an even better one.
I would have to say just the long hours spent in the studio exploring new sounds, ideas and concepts and seeing the hard work pay off when the projects are finally released and being received well by your peers.
Not being able to make music in a proper studio for all of 2019. I purchased a house this past year so I spent all of 2019 remodeling it and build a proper studio, so I was forced to make music on a laptop and MIDI keyboard. All the producers out there can feel my pain because after 15 minutes of making beats on headphones it will drive you crazy. I guess as a lowlight of 2019 it ain’t all that bad.
Song of the year?
The song of the year from me is this tune called “Moon” by TSHA. I absolutely love this song, and I think she’s dope! I heard this in some random place and I had to Shazam it to figure out what it was. I know people reading this will ask themselves “It’s not even techno, why is he picking this tune?” But I don’t really listen to much techno these days because I make techno all the time so I like to listen to other styles of music for inspiration or just to chill.
What’s your New Year’s resolution?
I feel like I say the same thing every year, but I really need to make more music! I can go long periods of time without even turning on my studio, but then again there are times I can crank out tunes in s short amount of time when inspiration hits.
