Dave Luxe: Interview

 

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Dedication, work, traveling, empathy, love.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

Just a regular dude, a music enthusiast. Nothing very fancy I guess !

Why do you do what you do?

Because it's a part of me. It's the only thing that gets me thru the day.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

Always been hooked on music, since my childhood, started playing piano at a young age even if I hated it. Then I came to Hip-Hop with the graffiti. When I decided to quit I naturally turned into Djing, I was going parties more than anything else anyways. I started going to illegal raves, and got hooked on electronic music, and started collecting vinyl records. The rest is history.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

I don't know. It's more like it's what I do that helped me overcome the toughest things that happened to me. Sometimes I even think it saved my life...

But for who helped me, I would like to shout out my mom, she's been really supportive since the beginning. Coming home super late (or actually very early), making hella noise all day, you know what I mean.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Not really, it has always been a personal thing. When you love what you do, the rest comes naturally. Started in my bedroom with my friends, ended up playing festivals. When you put enough love and work in it, the sky is the limit.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Until now I have to admit I was pretty lucky until now, I don't think I made any bad decisions... Yet. Of course we all have some hard times dealing with the business side of stuff, but I would do it again if I had to. Signing a bad record deal, investing money in a weak project... Every experience is valuable tho.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I'm working on a couple remixes and tracks for compilations right now, but I definitely gotta start working on my debut EP. One day maybe lol. Besides that I'm working on my first US tour, and also discussing to sign on a dope management company.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Just do what you like the most, don't try to please other people too much, and take your time to perfect your art. Don't rush it, don't release unfinished stuff, or try to collab with anyone. Just do it for the love and the rest will come. Also, more music, less internet, and that's for me too !

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Just wanna give a big shout-out to all the good people supporting my music, especially those that are with me from the very beginning (and that's a very few ones of them). Let's try to make this world a better place.
