How did you first start playing electro and progressive house?
I started very young and at home, I imagine that like almost everyone. First trying to mix with cassette and later with turntables!
What do you attribute to your success?
I believe success in life in general, and at a professional level I still have a long way to go, although I
am working hard to achieve it!
Your recent track ‘Evolet’ is out now, where and when did you record it?
Evolet came up very quickly, the sound came to my mind and I shot it in the studio. It’s a club sound,
now I’m just working in another direction.
What inspired the songwriting for Evolet?
I needed to transmit something fresh, with punch, with much joy and it was achieved.
You had a massive touring schedule in 2017, what do you find most rewarding and challenging of maintaining such a busy schedule?
I love to be on tour continuously, this year we have the obligation to overcome 2017 in everything.
I have to keep doing a lot in my career and I do not want to stop. I want more shows, more
productions, more collaborations and even more interviews … hahahaha
You had a massive residency at Pacha, how did you prepare for each show?
I really like to improvise, I am one of those who look at the track and give them what they ask for.
Although after so many shows at PACHA I already know the public well and I like to drive them crazy.
What do you think think is the key to a successful string of residency shows such as the Pacha shows?
Hard work, passion, a lot of sacrifice, a lot of excitement … all this is what TAAO KROSS adds up
every day to keep taking steps in the industry.
What do you have planned for the rest of 2018 in Ibiza and the rest of the world?
Keep working, soon I can reveal that you will be with me at IBIZA, but there are very nice things,
many shows in many countries and a lot of music to play
You have all the info on my website … www.taaokrossmusic.com
Are you or will you be working on new music?
I’m working on a lot of music, on incredible things that excite me a lot, on completely new sounds, I
want to innovate in the electronic scene and I have to get there!
What influences your songwriting and sound as a whole?
It influences me from my life day to day, experience, the family … I try to relate the sounds to
everything that surrounds me.
Favourite place to hangout?
IBIZA I adore her for all that she has given me, for all that she gives me and for all that we are going
to do together.
What hobbies do you have outside of music?
Enjoy the family, my friends from my city and the other life outside the shows and music.
