For my latest interview I decided to step into a genre that whilst I occasionally listen to, isn’t my regular cup of tea.

Not …

After having made his way into my interview section, Trifonic makes a natural continuation of his relationship with Speakhertz by talking to me about his music-making and production. As someone who’s brand of electronic music falls outside the mainstream festival favorites, it’s likely that you’ll find a sea of unconventional production advice, which you’ll be able to apply to you …

Following Steven Slate’s inaugural article, I got the chance to speak with the Danish chart topper, Morten. You may know this signee of PRMD Records for his progressive house sensibilities on tracks like “Look Closer“.
