Interview with Michael Herrick


What inspired you to start producing music?

I got into electronic music when my friend started DJing, and every time I heard these mixes he made, I was so curios how they actually made the songs. I did a little research and bought Ableton and a midi keyboard and never looked back.

How would you describe your personal style?

It definitely has a heavy pop and hip-hop influence, but I grew up listening to heavier music, so I think you can hear that in my tracks as well.

Do you have a favorite project that you’re most proud of?

It’s almost always the latest project I’m working on. The next one is always better than the last in some way, since I’m always improving. I’ll release a track that I’m really stoked on, then the second I’m back in the studio and make something cool, my enthusiasm shifts to the latest project.

What was it about ‘Namaste’ that inspired your remix?

It’s such a cool, unique track and I loved the vocals, and since it’s a different style track than I usually make, I knew it would be fun to make it my own.

How was it working with Lachi and Julian Javan?

They’ve both been awesome. Julian has been giving me production tips which is great, and I’ve worked with Lachi before and loved her work. Hope to work with them again!

Moving forward in your career, where would you like to see yourself?

I’ve been producing for about 4 years now, but never have DJed, so I just bought a DJ controller a month ago. After I get some more practice on that, I would love to start playing some shows. But I don’t have aspirations to make it big or anything, I just want to make good music and have it be heard.
