You recently released a new song called Give You Everything. What can you tell us about the track?

Give You Everything is a track that I made close to two months ago and it is the third track that I have collaborated on with the Dutch vocalist Lacey.

How has the reception to Give You Everything been so far, and where can it be purchased?

The response from listeners has been great with a steady rise in both streams on Spotify and views on YouTube.I see the song being added to at least two playlists daily and I predict the song will get more traction as it becomes more popular. It can be purchased and streamed on all music platform,s with Beatport being the major source for dance music.

Do you have any more singles planned for release afterwards?

Yes, I release music regularly and my next release will be towards the end of November and the towards the holidays. I try to put out at least one song a month.

Are there any plans to release an album or EP in the near future?

I have not thought of releasing an EP or album yet, even though I have a bunch of unreleased tracks. Maybe that will be something I can do in the coming year.

Give You Everything has a definitive synth-pop/electronic sound. What/who influences you most as an artist? What have you been listening to recently?

I listen to loads of different music styles, being a DJ all these years has taught me to be diverse in my listening. One artist that I am absolutely mad about is Fred Again. He in my book is a musical genius. I place him on the top of my list along with the late great Avicii.

What is the composition process like for you?

Depends,sometimes I will hear a great vocal line and start working on that first and add music as I go along. Other times, it’s the opposite. I might create a melody that will lead me to where I need to go. It’s all about the vibe I have at that certain moment.

Do you have anything else exciting coming up in the next few months?

A trip to America. It’s been over 6 years since I visited my birthplace – too long, I am looking forward to creating some tracks with Averse, my nephew who is a DJ/producer as well.

Do you have any tour dates lined up for the UK?

UK no, hopefully something might pop up in the future. The U.S. for this upcoming year only and Greece.

You were born and raised in NYC. Are you still based in the city? What is the local music scene like at the moment?

Not anymore, now I live in Karpathos in Greece, an island in the south Aegean. I own a club here. I spin mostly mainstream house and hip-hop, but I do keep in touch with NYC of course, and the music scene.

Any last words for the fans?

A praise to God and a big thank you to the people listening to my music. It means a lot knowing people are discovering me and enjoying what I am putting out. I started out with 1,000 streams a year in 2018 and now I am doing those numbers each day. I feel blessed to do what I love and gain listeners around the world. I would also like to thank you for having me and asking me to do this interview.
