TranceAttack: You have a huge year 2013 behind with your first releases on Mainstage, your regular signing on Armada and continuous support by W&W, Armin van Buuren or Hardwell. Have you already realized what happened the last months?
David Gravell: For me it went really fast! I have a lot of cool shows coming up and my music is climbing the beatport charts which I am really happy about! It is really a dream coming true!
TranceAttack: How do you describe the music you produce?
David Gravell: My tracks are bigroom with a bit of techno feeling basslines. Also I use a lot of vocals on my tracks to get a lovely feeling.
TranceAttack: Can you tell us how you started to produce music?
David Gravell: I must say I’ve been doing it for quite a while now and I think one year ago I saw a lot of artists making music and in my opinion it all sounded the same. There was a lot of music out there and everybody is making the same music over and over. It was really hard to be unique in the musical industry. It took me about one year, or something like that, and I started making kinda trance I like. Then I finished the track “fire away” and it was signed to the mix compilation of W&W and after that it all came together
TranceAttack: How did the first contact with W&W and the signing for the Mainstage Vol.1?
David Gravell: When I made the major decision to make trance music with my own stamp on it. It all happened really fast for me. The first track was ”Fire Away” that was recently signed to W&W Mainstage Compilation vol 1 on Armada Music. I just send a e-mail to W&W.
TranceAttack: You are active as producer and also as deejay. What was first?
David Gravell: I was producing first and then I started playing in small clubs in my home town!
TranceAttack: With your great start in the business what are your advices would you give to young talents to stand out from the crowd?
David Gravell: My advice is to create something new, be unique and take the time with producing. Follow your own heart and do what you think it’s best!
TranceAttack: You are described as the “must-watch name for 2014” from Armada. Can you tell us about your plans for the upcoming months?
David Gravell: I’m just doing what I love to do with my music. It gives me a good feeling to know that a lot of people like my music.I like to play at so many places and let the world know who I am and share my passion with music to them.
TranceAttack: You were part of the amazing line up of “ASOT650” and performed in the “Talent Room”. Please, tell us how it was for you.
David Gravell: I think this was the best show I did so far! Almost 6000 people went crazy on my tracks! Everybody knew all the tracks I recently released on Armada Music and I got some new Exclusives which I premiered for the first time and I was speechless! =)
