INTERVIEWS

Interview: Background check with Davi Hemann

We caught up with Davi Hemann to discuss his musical upbringing, inspirations and favourite releases.

At the age of 18, Davi Hemann has already had quite the music career already. Alongside many free releases, he has released tracks on many labels over the last year. ‘Spaces’ on ShiftAxis was the highlight of 2017 for Davi, showcasing exactly what he had to offer to the growing Big Room scene. Starting the guitar at 8 years old, he moved on to playing shows in his local area in his mid-teens and learned how to perform on the stage at a young age. He has utilized this ability to encapsulate audiences within his productions, with every single track capable of lighting up dance floors.

We had a chat with Davi to find out more about him and his musical background.

How did you first get into music?

My parents are big music lovers and my sister had guitar classes at home, so growing up in that environment, music was a huge part in my life.

What was it like growing up in such a culture rich country like Brazil?

It is very cool! There are a lot of different cultures around here and it’s a huge honour to get to know them so easily.

What was the one track that made you fall in love with dance music?

Oh so many tracks, but I would give a shot on ‘Greyhound’ by Swedish House Mafia or ‘Seek Bromance’ by Avicii.

Who are your biggest inspirations?

Life-wise I’d say Elvis Presley, Pink Floyd and Cat Stevens but speaking about EDM, it would have to be Swedish House Mafia and Avicii.

How would you describe your musical style?

It’s very hard, I really try to not get labelled. However, I would describe my music as energetic, powerful and meaningful.

Tell us one interesting non-music related fact about yourself?

I really like to play football but unfortunately I don’t have enough time to do it.

What has been your biggest career highlight so far?

Getting to become friends with very good people in the industry and opening Gabriel Boni’s show was incredible!

Who is your favorite artist at the moment and why?

At the moment, Riton. I get really impressed with his basslines and sound design, also, the way that he introduces the vocals on the overall track is amazing. Very fresh music.

Have you had a favorite release of yours and why?

Yes! ‘Spaces’ is a really significant song for me because it was so much fun to make it and it was a moment in my life that everything was going right. I miss that hahaha!

What else is in store for you in the future?

A lot of new music, I hope. Also, maybe a little tour? Keep an eye out!
