Tell us about yourself & how you got into music?
Hey, I’m Kuyano, a German electro house dj and producer! I love and listen to music since I was born. In 2008 I started the project Casa & Nova together with a good friend of mine. We were just two guys, who loved to play music in small clubs, exciting the crowd with our skills. Gradually we became more famous and were touring through Germany. That was the moment when we light upon FL Studio and started to produce our own tracks. We received many chart placements, but our biggest success was an official cover of Phil Collins’ “Another Day in Paradise”, which was nominated for the Hollywood Music Awards as the best cover. Since the beginning of this year I started my solo career as Kuyano, because our taste in music has spread more and more over the years..
Tell us about your genre and style of music
I always try to create something new that brings variety to my songs. I've changed my songs a lot over the years, but I always try to stay true to my style. I would describe my songs as very powerful, which makes me very specialize in festivals and clubs.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
I used FL Studio since the first day. I tried a lot of music production programs back then, but nothing has gotten me as excited as FL Studio ever since. You have a huge choice with the included plugins and can produce solid music without spending a lot of money on third party plugins. I also like the modern and colorful design of FL Studio. As a trained graphic artist it is always a pleasure for me to work with programs that are clearly and graphically cool designed, so you are more motivated to work on your projects. I cannot get anything done with boring and complicated designs.
Tell us about your production environment & toys?
My studio is really simply equipped. I'm working with a 27 "iMac with Bootcamp so that I can use FL Studio and my VST plugins. I use a mixer and a keyboard from Yamaha, as well as two studio monitors, so I hear something :-)
