1) Describe Yourself In Three Words

2) Your Fave Release Of All Time

3) Artist To Watch Out For?
Alex: My mate Mirko aka – XS. He’s a young creative whose already developed his own sound and is putting out some awesome content. Can’t wait to see what the future has for him!
4) Advice For The Dreamers, Trendsetters & Up N’ Comers Out There?
Alex: Get creative. Start thinking outside the box and start using the events in your life influence your creations. The world is so overpopulated and with so many people doing the same things, it’s sometimes hard to stand out and be unique. By using your thoughts and emotions in the things you do, it drives your passion in a whole other way and allows you to truly get a new perspective on ideas etc!
5) What do you have going on currently? What can we look forward to?
Alex: I currently have been working really hard on my production and starting to gain a sense of direction in the sound I am chasing. I am planning on releasing my first ever release as Profound by early Feb as well as release my new Dark Prog alias with one of my best friends in the new year (but we will keep his identity a secret for now!)
I am also pushing pretty hard to get my 3 track EP finished by July next year and to release it under my label, Brahmasutra records. I also have 2 releases coming up next year for a local label (also a secret for now) under one of my mates compilations, one being with an international from Mexico.
