Aditya – How would you describe your procution and DJing style?
Chrstphr – I’m a “Go With a Flow” guy mainly. I’m does’t like to overcomplicating the things. Everything what have in my mind, just trying to make quickly, cause I believe in the first impression. And then my soul rests, when I’m in the studio and catching ideas, and I work them out.
Aditya – Who are your influences and why?
Chrstphr – Lots of things influences me. Artist, places, vibes, sounds, musics. Everything. I really love the movies. Movies are the things that can completely take you out of everyday life, and for that little time I travel completely in my mind like a child.
Aditya – Your recent release ‘Praise the Lord’, a flip of the tune by ASAP Rocky sounds banging, what’s the creative process behind this track?
Chrstphr – In this project also, I haven’t got any idea before, just heard the trumpet sample, what I was found in a sampel pack, and the whole idea was maded in 1 hour. After that my friends told me is “Hey, this is the praise the lord from ASAP Rocky” and I was listened back the original track, and was get a idea, okay, I put his vocal in to it. And thats was the hole idea.
Aditya – You’ve played quite extensively, which is your favorite stage to perform and why?
Chrstphr – I actually really like all the vibes from other countries. Thats not a stereotype. Everytime when I in to a gig, I trying to catch the vibes from the crowd, and trying to showing my way through music.
Aditya – What’s your studio setup like? Any specific gear/plugin you cannot work without?
Chrstphr – Nothing special. I using everything in the box. I haven’t really got any type of outboard, and specific plugin. I using the most of plugins, like Serum, HIVE, Nexus, Fabfilters Packeg, and all the WAVES, and UADs. I really like to rushing, when I made a track, because once I catch the feeling I feel, I don’t want to let it go until then. The Ableton helping me much! :)
Aditya – Lastly, If you had to, would you rather spend the rest of your life in the hills or the beach?
Chrstphr – For me is the Beach. Originally I came from the Hills, so this would be a new life for me. Hahah :)
