I am "JWEEX"
Q - Your alias?
A - JWEEX.
Q - Your name (Nickname)?
A - Joshjan, but many people say it’s a hard name to pronounce so I get called Rico allot too.
Q - Your age?
A - 20.
Q - Where were you born and raised?
A - I was born in a city called Arnhem (in the Netherlands) and was raised in Zutphen (also in the Netherlands)
Q - Where do you currently live?
A - Warnsveld, the Netherlands
Q - Your artistic influences and where you draw inspiration?
Q - Your perfered DAW?
A - Started on good ol’ FL Studio but transitioned to Ableton Live.
Q - Your favourite plugin?
A - I want to say OTT, but I have to go with Serum.
Q - Are you self-taught or did you receive education, if so, where?
A - Both really. When I started making music I taught it myself how to handle a DAW (note, FL Studio). When I transitioned to Ableton I did get some help from a school called Pyntago, they give private- and group lessons for producers. They showed me how to operate Ableton Live. I also took some lessons over at DutchDjWorld. They primarily taught me about sound design, working with various vst’s and mastering but they also taught me how to DJ.
Q - Artists you've worked with?
A- None, so far.
Q - Events that you’ve taken part in?
A - I was a part of the selection in N.E.W. (Nieuwe Elektronische Waar, or New Electronic Ware). They select 10 artists every year and help them get closer to their career in music production based on the track they submitted. I sent them my track What About It, it’s a pretty heavy dubstep song which I also presented pretty loudly to my entire school (evil laugh) when I explained my passion as the subject on my thesis. Once I heard I was selected they did a meetup, a short interview, a photoshoot and released the track you submitted on an album on Spotify. That was my very first official release.
