  11. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  12. A: I really dream about giving life to the sound. It's sometimes tricky when working on electronic and urban / hip-hop projects, because it's mostly played with synthetizers. I think to old records: Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin. Giving life to autotune and leaving some rough things where I can are my everyday challenge.
