Asian Dan Interview: Meroz

1. Who is Meroz?
Musician, Producer, then DJ
I’m not worried about having the “coolest font” or the most “Retro Look” Its more about putting out quality music, be it using a sample or straight raw production.
I’m not letting peoples opinions on what is the new thing persuade me in the style of music
I produce. I make what I am feeling at the moment or what is presented to me.

2. What are your biggest influences? What was your first musical memory?
My Family and Friends, Positive people as well. Good Books, Movies and Art of all kinds.
My First Musical memory would be strapping on a pair of headphones at a very young age trying to sing along to the radio at early hours of the morning. After being put to bed. After Finding out I was terrible at singing I decided to play percussion Instruments.

3. Who are your favorite producers/DJs?
Todd Edwards, Paul Johnson, Daft Punk, Sebastien Leger,Teenage Bad Girl, Neil Landstrumm, Fred Falke, Alan Braxe, Hystereo, Cassius, Air, Phoenix,Frankie Knuckles, Cajmere, Sneak , Rush , Skip, the list is waaaaay to long.
Basically anyone from the early to mid 90’s and the first french touch wave House or Techno.

4. I know that you have a band too and enjoy producing rock music, what draws you to electronic and dance music that rock music does not fulfill?
Well I am a musician first and foremost so I never get enough of making music, this is another outlet for me to be creative. That and I love this music so much its been a big part of my life.

5. You are based outside of Chicago, how does it feel to be part of such an important city to electronic and dance music? Who are some of your favorite Chicago DJs/Producers?
Blessed, Who wouldn’t feel excited or inspired by the city alone. A few are listed above in the earlier mentioned favorites.

6. Future plans for Meroz?
Maybe a clothing line or a shoe sponsorship….. that would be nice…….
Nah some more ep’s possibly a full length and any remixes that come my way.
Some shows would be great. I also have this great plot to take over the music scene we will see
Happens. Now Bush is out of office its nothing but Future and Plans!!!!!
