Last week Melsen released a brand new collab with German producer Flexxus. A new name on our label, so we decided to interview him to get to know him better!
Where are you from and what’s something typical in your place?
I´m from Germany, living in a small town near Hannover. We love to play and watching football here and drink some beer to it. Also carnival is here a big theme in the beginning of the year, you could say that we like to party.
What inspires you and what makes you want to keep producing music?
I like to make uplifting and happy melodies with some good vibes, where everybody can dance to. Avicii had a big impact to me but there are so many great producers out there where I get inspiration from.
What was the first set of equipment/software you ever bought?
The first thing I’ve ever bought was Fl Studio, which I’m still using. Later I bought some Krk Monitors.
What is your favorite studio plugin?
There are so many cool plugins, but one of the best is the M1 Korg Plugin, where I can make my piano melodies with.
You’ve built a steady following on Soundcloud now with over 2K followers, but how did you go about growing your community? What helped you build your audience and what did you focus on?
My first ever tracks were free to download for everyone. So many youtubers out there used my tracks for their videos, which helped me a lot to get fans and more listeners. Another aspect is, to release music consistently.
