“I didn’t even notice it was getting followers until I got contacted by the first label if they could submit a few songs to it. Since then I pretty much rely on these submissions to fuel the playlist.”
What music did you grow up listening to as a young kid?
I absolutely loved The Black Eyed Peas when I was like 8. Even though I couldn’t understand pretty much any of the lyrics, it didn’t matter. In 2010, I discovered Skrillex – and everything about his music just felt right. Since then, dubstep and other electronic genres are my most favorite thing ever, I really can’t get enough of it
Name one of your favorite albums of all time?
When it comes to dubstep, I’ll have to go with Skrillex’s Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites – simply because that’s what got me to dubstep in the first place and the songs never got old for me
What is the best concert you’ve ever been to and why?
I don’t really go to concerts mainly because there are not so many of them here (at least when it comes to electronic music). I was at a Pegboard Nerds performance at Prague last year. It was fun, but it was more like a regular party then a concert. Still fun though
What is the last song you listened to?
Razihel – Legends (feat. TeamMate)
Pretty good song to be honest. Just a part of my personal playlist that I play on shuffle every time. I like the Hyper Potions’ remix better though.
How did the playlist come to be?
Well, to be honest, I never really thought the playlist would get big. I made it simply because Dubstep Gutter didn’t have any official playlist on Spotify – so I just made one for me and my friends. I didn’t even notice it was getting followers until I got contacted by the first label if they could submit a few songs to it. Since then I pretty much rely on these submissions to fuel the playlist. It’s become more of a promotion thing for new artists rather than Dubstep Gutter playlist, but I never charged money for it and don’t plan on doing so – I produce myself and it would be a shame for these producers to never get the recognition they deserve.
What is your favorite quote? Or do you have a life slogan?
I try to live by “everything you do returns to you”. I’m not particularly religious or anything, but this is generally what I try to apply to everything I do. When something bad happens I always try to find out “why is this happening” or “what am I supposed to learn from this”. I think this is something more people should look into, because I really believe most people want to be a good person at their core.
