Q&A - DJZII
Tell us about your story and how you started producing music.
Oh, I went to a military music school, played in a band. After some time, I became interested in writing music for the orchestra and studied the Sibelius program. I quickly got tired of it and wanted to write my own electronic music. For a very long time, I couldn't decide which style I like to write music in more. I was looking for myself in trap, dubstep, but then I really started to like tech-house and I started to try myself in this style of music. These were pretty good works, I don't think Fisher would have played them, but I played them sometimes. Then at some point, I started to like the dirty sound of house and I realized that I had to understand how this is achieved, I really liked this groove and so everything went off.

What are you looking for in a track when it comes to playing it as a DJ?
