Tzinah Records: Could you remember when and where have you felt it for the first time that you were to become a music artist?
Arseniu: I was playing with my cousins at small parties, like 10 years ago, from cassette tapes, mostly my friends were pushing me to do this but i was still keep it just hobby, i don’t know if was a feeling, i was just making music and looking to see were it brings me.
Tzinah Records: Why did you choose to create and play this particular type of music? Are there any artists that touched you deeply while developing your own style?
Arseniu: I think i didn’t choose this because i was making deferent gender before, buddha bar, deep house etc, one day i just try to make more minimal track, i send it to Radu Mirica (Ensis Black), he liked it, give me some tips, and i made a 4 tracks EP after…hehe, but after i was feeling that i had more to express so i combine what i was doing then with what i feel now, my music is and will be a mixture of deep house, dub and minimal touch, this is what i feel to make now.
Tzinah Records: Please, briefly, describe for us, the current state of the underground music scene in the place you come from. Is it any good?

Tzinah Records: Without giving out too much about your secret weapons, please tell us how does the magic work in your production routine. Software? Analog? What does your DJ set-up imply?
Arseniu: I start making music from nothing, hard way, and this is good because now i can make music from scratch easily , now i am mostly using modular synths, i just love them, virtual ones but soon i am waiting an analog upgrade ..hehe, my dj set-up is a pioneer mixer 600, 2 technics turntables, hard way, like i said this is the best way to a good sound and better understanding of music.
