Who are you and where are you from?
How come you started producing housemusic and which track/artist have been your biggest inspiration?
I got inspired to start producing music when I lived in Brazil. The clubs there really made me understand how importance of electronic dancemusic is. Eric Prydz has been by far my biggest inspiration on the electronic side of music, Tracks like Frankfurt and Balaton thought me a lot about structure and sound within housemusic.
If you could give one very good tip for young dj’s/producers to make it to the top what would it be?
Work alot with your friends to exchange ideas and skills.
Try to expirement with mixing styles like house and rock or maybe techno with rap and stuff like that, the result often becomes very interesting.
What would your ultimate gig be?
To be able to fill a massive club like Pacha Ibiza with a Line-up with my best friends like Flores, the Intergalactico crew and my girlfriends Dj Duo Rebecca & Fiona, this will hopfully happen this summer Hahaha!
Describe your own music style?
The influences is probably 30% House 30% Techno 30% Indie 30% Rock like Iggy Pop & The Doors (I Like that attitude), to much percent I guess hehe.
What are your top 5 tracks at the moment?
Ellie Goulding – Starry eyed (AN21 & Max Vangeli remix)
Ida Engberg & David West – Abtaka
Groove Armada - Paper Romance
Dadalife – Love Vibrations (Savage Skulls remix)
Rebecca & Fiona – Waiting for fun
Just a few weeks ago you signed with the great label: Ultra Records! It must be a great feeling and will this make any change for you as a producer?
Its awesome that i get to work more international and that my music its gonna reach out to a bigger crowd. I will still make the tracks like before and keep the ”Adrian Lux Vibe”, that is what got me this far.
Tell us a little about your upcoming track called ”Teenage Crime” on Axtone Records?
I wrote it during a hectic time in my life when I was out partying almost everyday living a very carefree life. during that time I faced alot of situations that came to inspire the lyrics. And then Axwell heard it through a good friend of mine and wanted to sign it imeditly. The singer is a good friend of mine, she is a big inspiration to my tracks, we work alot on both mine and her upcoming album.
You have any upcoming gigs in Sweden?
I have a gig in April with Style of Eye and Maskinen in Åre called LaLora, its going to be Massive!!!
