Which digital or analog instrument do you like to use?
I started using digital plug-ins like Sylenth , Subbombass ,Omnisphere Big Kick , etc… but when I could try analog instruments I felt the different at the moment, so step by step we are changing the Digital plugins to analog instruments.
Nowadays we work mainly with Virus TI Desk , Dave Instruments Mopho, Elektron Analog Four and Korg Electribe
Where do you looking for the music?
For me looking for the music is an attitude, always trying to find something new, something different, discovering new producers, etc.…
For buying vinyl I use discogs.com or deejay.de , also I like go to the vinyl-shops to discover old glories or new pearls
For digital music is different, there are so many music, so many options I search around the web normally, record label websites, music websites even in YouTube but finally I use to buy digital music on Beatport cause everything is there

What is your opinion of the electronic scene in Spain?
It seems that lately at least in Madrid, where I live , Start to emerge interesting initiatives that in addition to stop restricting the scene, are getting something that I consider fundamental , they are expanding electronics music beyond night and clubs , making it extensible to other times of the day and other places, This fact enriches a lot the scene and gives more oportunities for new talents to break into the scene, also it opens a new perspective for electronic music to be recognized as other cultural activity , In my opinion we can say that is a very good moment to the scene
What has been your experience with the labels?
My experience with the labels is not too wide for the moment but I would like to say that nowadays is so difficult to create a new record label, the 95 % of the labels close in less than a year since its inception so my sincere congratulations to survivors!
