EXCLUSIVE COVER INTERVIEW WITH ROBIN SCHULZRaverMag: Your song “Sugar” with Francesco Yates is very reminiscent of the Baby Bash song “Suga Suga”. Do you find inspiration in songs you grew up with? How do you discover new sounds? Robin Schulz: Samples in my music are usually influenced by my personal music taste and history. I look to what I like about a sound or how I can take an old song into a new direction. I also look for new singers, songs and am always seeking new sounds.

EXCLUSIVE WITH MORGAN PAGEExclusive with Raver Mag: Why do you think that is? Why do you feel some great local talent goes away or just fades out? I ask because there are so many DJs and artists now that it is a shame to see them give up on their dream, especially when some are very talented. Morgan Page: I am not sure why, but I think it’s because a lot of people want to be a big fish in a small pond and only do what they feel are comfortable with. No one likes to feel discomfort but sometimes you have to invite some failure, you have to invite some discomfort if you want to grow. I think that’s the key. You need to get out of your comfort zone and hustle it up. You have to know going in that you are competing against people that are so much better then you are and you have to work it as best you can. Even for me now, things are somewhat easier but it’s still hard. That never goes away, you have to always fight to have your music played and you still have to work hard to keep ahead of the game.
EXCLUSIVE COVER INTERVIEW WITH NORA EN PURERaverMag. While traveling, how do you stay level-headed? What gives you energy? What makes you “feel at home?” Nora En Pure: I wouldn’t say anything really makes me “feel at home”, until I am actually back at home! Of course speaking to loved ones via Facetime or so when I am away helps, and having certain foods or listening to certain music. The very best is having someone join me on tour, but of course that’s not always a possibility.
EXCLUSIVE WITH NURKORaver Mag. Who were some of your major inspirations when you started creating music? Whose music did you draw the largest inspiration from? Nurko: I would say that two of the people that have inspired me are, What So Not and Seven Lions. I’m am also very inspired from classical artists like Beethoven, Schubert, Mozart, Bach, Chopin, and many others. The classical artists were absolute geniuses and used their knowledge of classical music theory to set certain moods for their pieces. I strive to capture the same emotions as them in my music. https://soundcloud.com/user-793759422/inpetto-raver-mag-miami-music-week-warm-up-1
