Émile Lemay-Racine: Interview


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

Inspiration: People!

Passion: Something you could do every day of your life

Strength: Confidence

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

The man with the triple o

Why do you do what you do?

There is nothing like the feeling when you just finished an amazing project/track. I love surprising myself.

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

It just happened naturally. It started with a friendship. I got my friend Julien Bergeron into mixing and I got me into producing. We still mix together sometimes and it’s always dope.

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

I stopped releasing stuff over the last year and I lost a lot of visibility. I’m still struggling to come back in the game. I’ll be releasing more stuff on labels in the future so I don’t have to worry about plays.

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

My cousin Sim L is a big inspiration for me, this guy is so based! I think we inspire each other in many ways; it’s all about the exchange.

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

Thinking that if you’re making good music people will discover you whatever you do. Unfortunately it doesn’t work like this; it’s all about promotion/contacts/opportunities/money.

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

Mixing music and industrial design together

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

Be confident in what you do but stay humble.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Please don’t forget the third o
