Melsen interview – Get to know him.
What have Don Diablo, Sam Feldt, Nicky Romero, Lost Frequencies in common? They all play music in their sets by one man, Melsen. He already worked with labels like: Hexagon, Protocol Recordings, Flamingo Recordings, and of course our own Big & Dirty, but who is this keyboard wizard? Who is the man behind the name.
We sat down with Melsen to get to know him a bit better. Read the interview below
- Who is your biggest example in music?
It’s hard to name only one example because I have so many. Stevie Wonder is definitely on the list, I think he’s one of the best musicians and singers of the last century. In dance music one of my biggest examples is Axwell, I think he’s one of the best producers in the world.
- What kind of instruments do you play?
I can play keys, saxophone, drums and right now I am starting to learn how to play the guitar.
- Could you tell us more about the track “Get To Know You” and production process?
This project started with a very basic house beat. It didn’t took long before I had a cool bassline. The hardest part was looking for a vocal element which adds a human touch to the track.
- Do you have more hobbies?
I like to watch football, drink some beers with my friends and occasionally I play games (mostly FIFA).
- What is a useful tip you can give other producers?
Over the last couple of years I have learned that you have to keep pushing when ideas don’t come easily. It’s annoying and tough but keep creating even though you think you don’t have the inspiration. So keep pushing, it will come eventually.
- What can we expect of Melsen in 2020?
A lot of music obviously. Right now I am working on some collabs with amazing producers. So all I can say is stay tuned!
Stay tuned for more interviews.
