SR0046: BREEZE AND THE SUN
I fell in love with music at the age of 6...
...when I started playing classical guitar and then entered the conservatory of Music. Since then, my music journey has never finished. I studied and love classical music, but I also started to experiment and get interested in fusing classical and house, afro, electronic. DJing was a way to experiment with the discoveries I was making in the world. And it was the perfect occasion to enjoy music with perfect volumes and in amazing atmospheres.
Where I lived has definitely influenced my style and my taste.
First, the Middle East and its alluring sounds. I lived in Tunisia, I travelled in Algeria, Palestine, Jordan .. I was fascinated by their melodies and sounds. Then Sub-Saharan Africa. Senegal, Côte d'Ivoire, Cape Vert, Mozambique, where I live now. The rhythms they have and the voices are hypnotizing, they are mystical. I got into afro-house and deep melodic house.
My original inspirations are Worakls and Nora en Pure, very different but with a melodic touch that I really like. In the afro house scene, I love Elfenberg’s and Oliver Koletzki’s productions, but I also got to discover and really like many of the African producers, like Enoo Napa, Themba, Moo & Jo, Fnx Omar. In the deep melodic house scene, my inspiration is All Day I Dream, the label, and all the artists who gravitate around it. I like their concept.
In my mix for St. Romain you will find a lot of melodic and afro house, our productions as well as some other great tracks in that style. And also a little surprise of a soon-to-be-released track with a great remixer 🙂
Good music and good people.
With My Other Side of the Moon, the label of which I am co-founder, we started to organize label parties, with the idea of bringing a different concept of music. We wanted to offer only good quality music, of genre-affectionate of house/deep house/melodic/afro house; we wanted to bring artists in line with our program from other countries; we wanted to be as much environmentally and socially sustainable as possible; only good quality drinks and people who came because they share these values. We succeeded, but then COVID hit... We are looking forward to continuing with this project!
