DMCWORLD checks in with one of the hottest producers on the US electronic music circuit. Cutting his teeth on releases with Stereo Productions, Younan Music and Shake Recordings as well as b2b sets with Hot Since 82, Technasia, Marco Faraone and Paco Osuna…we grab five minutes as he releases his brand new single on Ultra…
Hi Fiin, welcome to DMC World! Could you tell us a bit about your new single ‘Wild Trees’ and the inspiration behind it?
Hello, thank you for having me. The idea was born from a simple African chant I heard and I was working on an afro house groove prior days which made perfect sense to try it. It all came together when I got the opportunity to work with FLU and his vocal was a great fit.
Your single features the singer, Flu from INUDE – how did this collaboration come about?
I like to work with other artists/vocalists on my productions a lot. Thanks to Ultra I got introduce to Flu and liked his voice from the start. Hopefully, we keep working together in the future.
You’re very quickly making a name for yourself within the Miami electronic music circuit – where did it all begin?
Its been crazy the past months or so. It all began when I became the youngest resident DJ in the old Heart Nightclub about 5 years ago or so. Through those years I earned my rank by opening/closing for the biggest artists week in and out. Plus insane marathon and after-hours sets. All of this had a huge effect on helping me establish my name in the scene.
How long have you been running your weekly nights in Miami? What effect has the current time of cancellations had on this part of your career?
On Sundays together with my amazing partners, we started Relic about a little over a year ago and it since has established itself as a staple in the Miami scene by helping and pushing local talent and making it feel like home to everyone who came on Sundays. I think everyone has had the same effect in terms of their career because of the virus, I mean we’re all kind of on pause. In the meantime I’m trying to be as productive as possible, working on new music, live streams, marketing ideas for Relic, etc.
Has music always been a passion of yours?
Music wasn’t always a passion of mine. In fact, I discovered it by luck. I was actually studying Medicine and I came upon a live set from a local DJ legend playing at the legendary Space Terrace and that was it for me.
Now that we are all in isolation, what’s been keeping you busy and have you found this time musically productive?
It really hasn’t changed my routine much other than I can’t travel or play any gigs. But I’ve been doing what I always do which is spending an immense amount of time crate-digging and searching for music. I’ve taken on reading books and learning how to play a new instrument. I also have been working on finishing some upcoming tracks that I’m super excited about. And just overall keeping myself busy but involving everything with my craft.
What can we expect to come next from you?
I’m currently working on so much music and projects that I can’t wait to share with you all as soon as this is all over. So keep posted and a positive attitude!
