Where are you from?
I live in Los Angeles, California, USA
Describe your sound:
Hmm, I’m a weird blend of a bunch of different styles. I’m not trying to be that way. I just like a variety of music. If I had to categorize, it’s future house and electro with some elements of big room, trance and trap. You could hear two of my tracks and they could sound so different you wouldn’t think they were both mine. But hopefully they both make you wanna dance around.
Tell us about your latest track:
This is a bootleg of Camila Cabello’s “Never Be the Same”. I loved her vocals and the lyrics resonated with me. The original is kind of a ballad but I could clearly hear a dance remix in my head for clubs. Check it out
Who inspires you?
It could be a lyric or a beat or even a bizarre sound. Maybe something I heard a long time ago mixed with something I just heard today. Somehow your brain is like a sponge and then blends things into something unique. I’ve woken up in the middle of the night with an idea that was bouncing around in my head and had to get up to record it immediately before I forget it. Inspiration can come at anytime and from anywhere. You always got to be ready. Use that voice recorder on your cell phone!
Where do you see your career in 5 years?
My goal is to release a lot of music consistently throughout the year and ideally have enough demand to tour. I also plan to incorporate more interesting elements to my live shows. This would include more scratching, mixing videos in sync with the music, and possibly more live instrumentation and effects so it’s more of a live electronic music show. I’ve got a lot of ideas that I know will come together in the near future.
Where can we check out your sounds?
My web www.djJounce.com is probably the single best place since it pulls all my content into one spot. I also have free remixes you can download from there. My originals are on soundcloud.com/djJounce, live DJ mix sets are on mixcloud.com/djJounce, and some previews of music on instagram.com/djJounce. I also do music production tutorials and my latest is on youtube.com/djJounce which also has tips on how I made this “Never Be the Same” remix.
Tell us something about yourself that the people need to know.
The main reason I do this is for the music as an artist and producer. If you told me I could make millions DJ’ing but I could never write music … OR … I could write and
produce my own art and just make a living with DJ’ing, I’d take the later all day. That may sound unreal, but it’s as honest as I can be. Live life to the fullest and follow your real dreams!
