MYST from Nightbreed interview by Keyvent
During the 1st anniversary of HardSpot Events we used our chance and interviewed one of the biggest newcomers in the Hardstyle scene, MYST!
- What do you think about the German hardstyle scene if you compare it to the Netherlands?
I think it’s a bit smaller but the people here are very dedicated, the energy is good. When I entered the room it was the right energy I need for a good party.
- You´re really busy travelling around the globe. Where do you get your energy from?
Throughout the week I just do music so I save a lot of energy I don’t have a job where I have to go on my knees and do hard work or something so I have a lot of energy for making music. From time to time I do some fitness.
- Besides hardstyle/hardcore is there another music genre you listen to?
I don’t really listen to a lot of music. I used to listen to a lot of metal, soundtracks, and I used to play guitar in a Punk Rock band for 2 years or so but then I started with producing. Nowadays I barely listen to music, maybe only for a reference for my mixdown. Normally you use music for relaxation but for me it’s more like doing work. And I get my relaxation more from watching series and playing videogames.
- Which track dominates the dancefloor?
That´s a hard one…
If I had to choose one I would say Legends of Endymion. Endymion made a bootleg of Yellow Claw’s “Legends” and I play it in my sets for two years now and it’s going crazy at every party.
- What can we expect from Nightbreed Records this year?
If I speak for myself I will bring a minialbum in like a month or two. And Crystal Mad, Degos & Re-Done and Endymion are also releasing new Albums. So there´s a lot of stuff coming from the label.
The scene is growing in Germany I like how the organization is putting a lot of energy in booking guys like me and just keeping the scene alive and letting it grow so that’s great!
The interview was recorded during the HardSpot Anniversary on the 10th of February.
Big thanks to MYST & Nightbreed!
