A: As a member of the Joy label, I’ve connected with numerous talented local and European artists, fostering a rich network in the industry.

Q: What’s the most significant lesson you’ve learned from others in the industry?

A: The paramount importance of being a good human before a musician. In production, the valuable lesson that less is often more.

Q: Share two truths about yourself.

A: First, I started creating music at 13 on FL Studio, eventually progressing to Reason, Ableton, and Cubase. Second, I’m proficient in playing various instruments, with the Zorana being one of the coolest.

A: Playing at Burning Man—a dream I aspire to fulfill.

Q: Thoughts on potential misinterpretation or cancel culture?

A: As a Jewish individual in Israel, grappling with the persistence of anti-Semitism is challenging. It’s disheartening when misinformation clouds understanding, especially surrounding significant events. The sanctity of places like Rava, which should be spaces of acceptance, is sometimes overshadowed by external influences.

Q: Do you entertain conspiracy theories? Why or why not?

A: No, as it doesn’t contribute to personal growth or career advancement. Time spent in the studio creating music is more worthwhile.

Q: Worst on-stage experience?

A: Playing at a seaside venue during a label party in scorching weather—my white shirt turned transparent. Awkward, yet the event remained memorable.

A: I have a deep passion for movie soundtracks, and my favorite artist in this realm is Hans Zimmer. The intricate way he weaves music into cinematic experiences has been a profound source of inspiration for me.

Q: Tell us about your latest music release, “Eye of Acid.”

A: My new mini-album, “Eye of Acid,” is a dance floor-oriented EP with three sections. The goal was to infuse a sense of euphoria and joy into the tracks, creating an immersive experience for listeners.

Q: What was the recording process like?

A: Crafting each track on the EP felt like narrating a unique story. The entire creative process spanned two months, during which I experienced an incredible flow of inspiration, allowing me to bring each piece to life with a seamless and captivating energy.

Q: What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?

A: In this creative realm, every production journey unveils new lessons. It could be a technical revelation, such as discovering exceptional sound sources, or a creative breakthrough, like incorporating live recordings—capturing various sounds at home and transforming them into loops. These insights have the power to elevate a track from good to extraordinary.
