Check out EDM Chicago\’s’ exclusive interview with David Solano below.
EDM Chicago: Coming to Chicago what kind of experience are you looking for?
David: I know Chicago is one of the birth places for EDM so I expect an amazing, educated crowd. I’m looking forward to a crazy night!
EDM Chicago: So how did you become exposed to electronic dance music?
David: I was born in Colombia where EDM has always been huge. I always heard it on the radio and in most nightclubs, so at a very young age I found myself trying to figure out how to make it myself. I didn’t feel satisfied being just a listener. That’s when I knew I wanted to produce.
EDM Chicago: We know your being recognized by some of the top Dj\’s like Tiesto, R3hab, Steve Aoki, Robbie Rivera, etc…. Who would you like to collaborate with?
David: I’d love to collaborate with guys like Tiesto, Showtek and Tommy Trash. I’m a huge fan of their sound and I know we could make a banger together. Hopefully it will happen soon!
EDM Chicago: What are some upcoming releases you can tell your fans about?
David: I just released a track with R3hab last month on Spinnin Records called \”Do It\”, which was the Life in Color Anthem. I have two solo releases coming out on Spinnin Records, one of which comes out the end of this month, June 28, called \”Kaboom\”. I’m also in the process of making a second collaboration with R3hab which I’m hoping to release in the Fall.
EDM Chicago: How frequently do you think artists need to release music these days in order to stay relevant?
David: I think it depends on how big an artist is. If you want to get noticed, you need to release music every month to build momentum so that people can start following your music and your sound. EDM has exploded on the music scene so fans have unlimited choices on what to listen too. It’s important to stay connected with your fan base and keep them aware of your music on a regular basis so you don’t get lost among the crowd.
EDM Chicago: Outside of producing and playing music, how do you like to spend your time?
David: Music is my life so I don’t have too much free time completely away from it. When I do I play soccer—I’m a huge Fanatic! Also, I love to spend time with my family and close friends.
