You unveiled your EP Malibran a few weeks back. How did you first get into music?
When I was young, I did lots of skateboarding. I used to watch plenty of skateboard videos with mad soundtracks – I discovered Daft Punk, Moby, Eminem, Dr Dre, Tupac, things like that. My parents played an important role too, there were records everywhere at home.
A few years later, I set up my own band. I sang and played the guitar. The other members went to college and we didn’t have time to practice that much anymore, but I was really into music and wanted to keep on doing it. So, I turned to electronic music: I was able to do it by myself, but I was also more motivated, on another level of ambition. It was just me and an Ableton controller, I started everything on my own. After I graduated from school, I decided to spend a year in Brighton to discover the British musical landscape and culture. I met a girl there and followed her to Barcelona, where I studied music production and sound engineering. I had a clear objective in mind: entering the music industry. You see, back then I had no contact whatsoever: I grew up in a small town in the south of Belgium, near a former steel plant. At that time, there weren’t any YouTube tutorials to learn how to use softwares or downloading samples. If you didn’t know someone who knew someone, it was a nightmare. So, I struggled, and that’s why I studied sound engineering and production: I wanted to learn about it all and get a foot in the music business.
