Episode #557: A.V.A Live Radio Behind The Music with Jacqueline Jax :
Interview by Jacqueline Jax
host of A.V.A Live Radio
Person Interviewing: Stefano Gaetano
Song name: I Can Fly (remix)
Music Genre: EDM, dance, electronic
Remix of a great country band I had the pleasure playing with. I loved the hook and askem them if I could remix it. All about good times. Fun, high energy vibes. Just want people to feel good and have fun dancing and jamming to it!
“I Can Fly” is about combining the best of many different worlds. I love all types of music so if two different genres like country and electronic and join forces just makes for a better party and good times!
Where do you create your music?
Every song has it’s own origin. There really is no set plan to making a great song. It all starts with your inner emotion. Day to day your mood changes and that reflects in the music. Going into the studio feeling loose with a certain vibe in mind you roll with the sounds and start building from the bottom up.
How do you stay focused and balance creating with life..
Sleep, sleep, sleep! Djing 4-5 days awake on top of studio and traveling life can spiral out of control pretty fast. Making sure letting your body recover and always setting time apart for yourself is huge! Having a strong support network is also a big part of it, family, friends….they go a long way!
What piece of music advice forever changed your way of thinking?
A fellow friend/dj of mine told me it isn’t just always about playing what people are going to like, that is obvious. The game changers are the ones who can push their limits to new sounds and music they have never heard. That stuck with me not only in the dj booth but right into when I began producing my own music.
I live in…
NJ, USA (Belmar…Beach life forever!!!!!), the music scene here is great! You can find anything from rock,reggae, jazz, country, to dance, electronic, and old school! Legendary venues like Stone Pony, the old House of Blues in Atlantic City, to modern night clubs have and continue to kill it with new and old cutting edge music from all genres!
