What was it that first got you into music. Did you always see yourself writing dance tracks?

My father definitely pushed me towards music. Before finding the right path for me, I tried different genres, but it didn’t take long to understand that writing dance tracks was exactly what I was looking for. I have always wanted to do something that brings energy and happiness to people. I believe that this is somewhat the essence of dance music. I have always liked the idea of creating a sound that can be listened to on the radio as well as in a small club, let’s say universal music.

You’ve been producing music for a while now and you’re only 24! Does music run in your family?

Music is a cult in my family. My father and uncle founded a music band called Hypaton when they were young, which is actually where my name comes from. Since I was young every evening, when my father came home from work, he used to sing and play the guitar, and this had a great influence on me. I can say that I was born with music in my blood. As a youth, I used to replicate what my father played and listened to, which mostly consisted of 70s music, but as I grew up, I discovered that writing dance tracks was my true passion.

You became a viral sensation with your clever future rave reworks, gaining attention from the likes of David Guetta. How did it feel to get this recognition? 

I must say that the emotion was very strong. Behind those 40-second videos are years of work. In the previous years, my music was often rejected, so attracting David’s attention made me feel very fulfilled.Often people from the outside believe that it’s just luck, but in reality, it’s perseverance and hard work that lead to success. For many years, I trained in the studio to produce tracks, and only last year  I started publishing my Reels. Everything is part of a process and, above all, as I already mentioned earlier, it’s important to keep believing in yourself. If your work is rejected by someone, it doesn’t mean that it will be rejected by everyone. Work hard, and sooner or later, you will meet people who appreciate what you do and that’s a beautiful feeling.

Having grown up loving a variety of different genres, it must have been a hard decision choosing a genre to hone into. Could you describe your creative process?

My love for various music genres is a significant asset to my creative process. Without even realizing it, I tend to incorporate elements that reference these genres in different ways into my productions. My creative process starts when I feel a particular inspiration. I never force myself to sit in front of the computer. When ideas light up like light bulbs in my head, I start developing them with my laptop. As my father says, music is all about emotions, and for me, are the positive ones that allow me to develop my ideas to their full potential.

Who, and what inspires you?

David Guetta has always inspired me. I remember that during my adolescence, I always listened to his/her great hits, which inevitably influenced my approach to music. I frequently draw inspiration from movies, especially Marvel films that incorporate classic popular songs in a futuristic environment. These elements serve as a launching pad for many of my creative ideas.

You’ve just released a an electrifying rework of La Bouche’s ‘Be My Lover’ with David Guetta. Who would you like to collaborate with next?

At the moment, I feel very connected with David. Working with him is very fun because we have very similar musical tastes, and we’re working on other projects. I will always be open to explore new collaborations with artists with different music genres. This approach allows me to infuse a fresh perspective and energy into my own productions.

Your music continues to win new fans, amassing over 50 million views and counting. What has been your favourite track that you’ve created so far?

Firstly I would like to say that I am really grateful for the amazing support that my fans have shown me on social media Maybe it’s obvious to say, but “Be My Lover” is my favorite track at the moment. I had a lot of fun producing this track and the idea for the song was developed in less than 2 hours. I knew right away that it had something special.

What’s your production set up?

At the moment my production setup is really minimal because I live away from home, since I’m attending  university. I only use a laptop, a gaming monitor, a pair of headphones and a keyboard. However, in my hometown in Italy, I have built a professional studio over the years with plenty of space and equipment for music production. I must admit that being able to produce in the atmosphere of my studio in Italy greatly facilitates the production process and allows me to work smoothly.

What show has been your favourite that you’ve played and why?

This question is very funny because at the moment I’m just a producer. I have never performed, but I have had the opportunity to attend several music festivals such as Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Dreamstate. I will be making my DJ debut this summer.

What are you plans for the rest of the year and what can we expect from Hypaton?

The plan is to make as much music as possible, so you can expect lots of new records coming out. And, as mentioned earlier, you will start seeing me performing around the world!
