Markk to Release New Single, 'Caballero'
New Release Comes on July 29th
Today, Markk joins us at HMP Records to talk about his new single, Caballero.
--Hey Faith, welcome to HMP Records! How have you been?
Hello and thank you for including me in your releases.
--Can you talk to us more about your latest single "Caballero"?
This my latest single was born from the desire to release a song that could reflect the summer sounds. So I decided to make it very Latin without ever going out of my style which is the Tech House.
--Did any event or experience in particular inspire you when
producing this track?
I got inspiration from the various productions that have recently come out on the digital market and I have noticed that the greatest producers tend to use a fresher, Latin style without ever straying from what it represents.
--Who are some of your musical influences?
I am very inspired by the great masters of House music such as David Morales, Louie Vega, Bob Sinclair, Franky Rizardo and also getting involved in a more NuDisco style like that of Purple Disco Machine. I listen to all genres of music, I love music at 360 degrees because it helps me to face all the various moods that invade my life --How was the creation process for you? Any roadblocks?
Well let's say that the production was very easy because when you have the right inspiration everything is simplified.
--What’s your favorite part about being a musician?
The part I love most about being an artist is when I see the audience in front of me enjoying my set and also when they like and dance to your production.
--Who is somebody you always wanted to work with (living or deceased)?
My dream one day is to be able to collaborate with Bob Sinclair because he is a 360 degrees artist, humble that people like. I would have liked to know and collaborate with the great Frankie Knuckles who was a bit of the godfather of house music.
--To date, what's your most memorable music moment?
The highlight of my musical career was when I first played in front of 4000 people and everyone enjoyed and enjoyed my music.
--What does the immediate future hold for you in your artistic career?"
I can be satisfied as I am starting to tour Europe thanks to my previous productions and my management. And I hope soon to be able to reach the rest of the world as well.
