Really big fan of Brazilian producer DNYO. Luckily I found a recent set of his in the depths of Soundcloud as it all has gone a bit quiet on my music feed recently, maybe due to the crazy schedule some of these guys have had over the Xmas break. Who can blame them!
Check out an interview of DYNO’s below.
1. What are your earliest memories of music, what did you listen to growing up? How did you get involved in electronic music and what made you decide to pursue it full time?
DNYO: My earliest memories as a little kid were singing in the church choir, classical was my favorite for sleeping, there used to be a station back then that played only instrumentals and classical, I remember that’s how my mom would put us to sleep. I liked what my mom would put on the radio, I remember the 80s being very melodic, and music was amazing in the 80s. I got into electronic music in 97, I already knew what dance music was, I usualy say that it found me and not the other way around, very unusual actually, walking to a bus stop and finding a cd on the sidewalk called “Tranceport – Paul Oakenfold” that was it, a week later was downloading BBC’s Essential Mixes on Napster and buying singles on CDNow.com. That era was magical, it was the 1st time I felt good about everthing in my life, and it took me to a whole new world you know? At the time I didn’t think of being a DJ, I would get started spining as one a few months after that, but what really caught my ears was how all of that music was being made, so producing really is my first love.
