T.H.E – How old are you, where are you living and how long have you been producing and DJing?

Erkki. R – Hey! I´m so old that I don’t even remember – hehe (37), I have been producing with ups and downs for almost 10 years, but my final breakthrough came last year when I signed a track to ShowLand (Armada). I live in Finland and I love it here!

T.H.E – What advice would you give to any budding producer?

Erkki. R – Keep pushing until you get what you deserve!

Erkki. R – Inspiration for that track came from my new life partner, wife, soulmate who I met over a year ago. She has supported me in every step.

T.H.E – What’s the music scene like in Finland and Estonia (your native country)?

Erkki. R – I am not too sure about the music in Finland, I’m really not sure. To be honest, I don’t even listen to radio that much. Spotify is like the radio here. Same goes for Estonia where I was born. I think, it is more popish stuff over there!
