ED: Hello, thanks to you for wanting to interview us, today we would be one with the production and another with the marketing of the label and the brand


MI: Where did you first learn music? A music school? How has it panned out in shaping your career? 

ED: From an early age we were very influenced with electronic music. So when David turned 16 he bought the first equipment to be able to mix, a few years later, we decided to bet on making our productions, but we have never been to conservatories.


MI: What currently keeps you busy these days?

ED: Right now we are with the organization of the new EP of our Alpha Black label.


MI: How would you describe your style of music production and DJing to someone unaware of this genre?

ED: Our style of production as a mix is ​​characterized by very melodic music and rhythms that induce dance.

MI: Which is your dream label?

ED: Alpha Black 

MI: What is your methodology behind a set you play when you open for artists at clubs? What is the creative process behind your sets?

ED: We never really have any plans, first we see what the room and the audience is like, we listen to what is playing and what they like so we put the first album and enjoy it as much as they do, it has never gone badly like that, we believe that the important thing is to make the people who come to hear you feel, just as you are feeling.


MI: As an upcoming artist with tough competition, what struggles and challenges do you face?

ED: You always have to aspire to everything, set a high goal to be able to demand the maximum, because if not, it is not achieved.


MI: Do you have a studio? What’s the current set up like? What equipment you have and what is that you can’t live without?

ED:Yes, we have studio, currently we only use Ableton, push 1 and our pair Adam A8x for perfect sound.

MI: Tell us about your productions thus far, your releases.

ED: Each of them is a different story to tell, we like to start from 0 even when they ask us for a remix for an artist, it is best to start a path that makes you feel good about yourself and that you feel is reflected in the sounds of the records. We have works in Tenampa, WOOD, Dear Deer, Awen, Alpha black.

MI: What’s coming up for You down the road?

ED: Work, new artists to meet, new sounds, new countries. But above all, a lot of music.
