Some people may say: „This guy has such an easy task releasing music. All he has to do is to chose from already World-famous hits and simply remake them…” Yes, this partially again is the issue of not having my own music. But I must admit it isn’t so easy still. There are just so many of these hits and it isn’t so simple to make the right selection.
From one hand I also need to take steps forward with the music and my image, but from the other hand I’d still like to stick to the genre I chose and what I mostly like: to “live” in Hi-NRG. And there are many other factors too… For example the lyrics, whether or not it requires change of genders. The actual style (within Hi-NRG) so that the songs don’t all sound the same. Whether or not the chosen song suites me as an individual and the characteristics of my voice — there are hits that I’d like to do, but simply do not fit my personality.
So I am constantly looking for music. It is like doing a research, sort of digging the archives. Ordering old or reissued CDs, surfing on YouTube within the music era we call “retro” these days, testing or rather „tasting” songs.
And I am putting long, endless lists together, adding songs and taking some off.
It is a very long process, requires a lot of time and energy, just the same as when people look for real pearls of the nature. But very exciting and enjoyable.
Stay tuned to see what my new pearls will be!More...

“Why don’t you have your own songs?” “Why don’t you get someone to compose music for you?” “Why did you choose Hi-NRG?” “What is the point of covering / remaking hits of other artists?”
These and many others… Questions that I am getting about the music I am doing. Yes, it’s also true: I cannot call it my music, because these songs aren’t originally mine. It’s the music of an era. Even if I had the luck to be a part of the booming Hi-NRG success, I would have been too young to be a performer. But it is still good music with good grooves and melodies. It is indeed difficult to create new nowadays. Trends are coming and going — new music with new sounding is created, but some hits and many of the basic music components of the “old days” stay. Getting all the above questions from time to time I answer with a theoretical question back: “Why to create new music when the “old hits” are still liked?”
Almost 20 years are gone ever since these hits were born, so in any event: it is time to bring them back. Those who were fans of this music in the 80s – 90s surely like to have a retro-flash brining back those memories. Talking about the younger generation: these hits are old enough to sound new to them… I have always been a fan of this kind of music and I am so happy to be able to record and perform them, still and always giving me the complete music-euphoria. So remember the old days with me — more hits are on the way…
