I: What is your most treasured memory as a musician
SSD: There is no particular moment, all this music thing is already a treasure to me.
I: Tell us about your work, what is the purpose of making this kind of music instead something else genre?
SSD: There is a link with my past, disco reminds me of some good moments of my life, especially my childhood, it makes me feel nostalgic and I love this feeling. I think disco music fits perfectly to this concept that’s why I think I feel confortable with it. It is also both hard to produce and easy to listen, which are two concepts hard to match, so artisticaly and technicaly it’s interesting for somebody like me who is in a constant research of progress.
I: What elements do you use for your music?
SSD: A computer, some gears, synths, fl studio, ableton, an a heavy collection of samples… and sometimes additional instrumentation from other people who can do music better than me.
I: Is there something that you could use for your music?
SSD: My main inspiration is certainly all the music I listen to but also moments or feelings I like, I try to synthetise all thoses things I like to make my own music.
I: What is the last concert you saw? How many band’s album do you own?

SSD: In no particular order: Alejandro Jodorowsky, Ennio Morricone, Hayao Miyazaki, Giorgio de Chirico, Moebius, Clark, Mitch Murder, JÈrome Bosch…
