Hello World.. Yeah! I am excited by the achievements and highlights I got this year, I’m very happy!
SUM: Tell us how “Rhamm Thrash” came to be? How would you define your style and who/what are your musical influences?
Yes of course!, I consider myself as a Future groove producer! Following Electronic Music influences such as.. Electro, Dub, Techno, Groove and Experimental drums, currently I go for a futuristic composition and I find difficult to stay in one phat! haha I create everything I think and feel, I’ll explain:
I feel that my music is a mixture of imagination and emotion .. yeah, this prompt me in to an adrenaline rush, I also notice that in the dance floors when i’m playing, is Amazing! hm, I will say that my influence is the Universe.
SUM: Recently, you have released “B Polar EP ” which was a Techno oriented EP. Please describe shortly the creative process of the EP, what inspires you and what tools you use Software/Hardware that helped you to do this original productions a reality.
The creative process of the curiosity for a new sound was first done in my house then re done soon after in my studio. B Polar is one of my best works, this project showed aggression that translated in to Techno!, my mind was filled with large grooves and tried to experiment. I have 10,000 hits in my (Soudcloud) and now gaining more fans and exposure due to Big Alliance Deep which I call home. B polar is a modulated mix with some wonderful waves and the use of some frequencies cuts to create that strange line that screams like a giant of angry nature!
I love A.N.A. VST!, is very cool
SUM: How many hours a day do you see yourself doing your magic in your studio?
Today I have some spare time to think more about what I would like to create. I like to concentrate for 6 to 8 hours a day to produce and those hours are in the evening, love the dawn primarily 03:00 am for me is the best time to think.
SUM: What feels more rewarding for you, music production or Djing?
I will not be hypocritical, I love the contact with the crowd, that’s huge for me!, those who know me, know how much I love play! … but my sentimental value is definitely towards the production of music.
SUM: What is the best or the craziest memory you have from a live event?
I have several memories, i got a gig in Angra dos Reis RJ Brazil in 2012 which changed my life!, played to 2,500 people and was massive! I screamed and screamed the crowd was crazy .. great grooves!, it was a lot of fun, what a super dance floor. I still also remember a girl putting her hand in my ass while I was playing, I always thought it was strange but the curious thing was that I was playing my Single ‘Techno Virus’ and I understood that was the reaction of Techno! (Laughs) .. and after… to the Beach! oh lord Thanks MUSIC PARADISE .. yeah Rafael Alves!
SUM: So far what you think has been the highlight of your career?
I will say this with a strong attitude, is has been exactly 2 years that I have been with my new crew and label ‘AMU13 & Alternative Mafia Underground’. My gut feeling say “I’m next” but not now!, the truth is that I wish to have more space and confidence on my country’s industry.
I want more confidence on stage, I’m new and I already have much of the market next to me, I’ll wait to get a full menu!, several options .. haha that’s my idea.
SUM: How do you feel the music scene in Brazil relates to the electronic dance community in the U.S.?
We are very close in the sense of ideas and imagination, Brazil is good party country and keeps growing, great artists from the United States play here and immediately fall in love, here the energy is hot and explosive!, I would love to perform in LA one day.
