Exclusive Interview with Henrix
Miami native DJ-producer Henrix is no stranger to Miami Music Week. Now that the biggest week of the dance music calendar has begun, Henrix has quite a busy week ahead of him. Armed with some new tunes (which will be coming to fans via some big labels), he's set to make 2015 a breakout year. Check out what Henrix has planned for both Miami Music Week and the near future. Also, check out the preview his forthcoming track with Bream and vocalist Zashanell, "Alright" below.
Having been active for quite some time, what're major developments and evolutions you've observed in WMC/MMW?
Henrix: I think the change from it being more of a underground thing, to it becoming the global phenomenon that it is today. I think that started happening around 2008 honestly after Swedish House Mafia & Laidback Luke released "Leave The World Behind."
Tell us about your upcoming releases. We heard "Raverz" is going to be released soon on Size Records, which is getting a lot of buzz. Are there any other tunes in the pipeline?
Yes we are scheduled to release with them. As far as other tunes there certainly are more. Just signed two different ones to two big DJ labels. One is a new label ;) Also have other tracks coming as well that im looking forward to releasing.
Since you're playing shows in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Newport Beach and all throughout Winter Music Conference in March alone, are the forthcoming months looking as packed?
Yes! I took some time off touring for a bit so I can focus on my music more, as last year I went 8 months straight of touring and didn't really have much time for studio, but now I'm getting back on the road soon. I'll have a lot of new material for the upcoming shows so its good I took some time off haha.
Give us some background on your residency in Las Vegas at LIGHT. How often are you planning on playing there in 2015?
It started last year, I was only supposed to have a few shows but I guess they liked my sets and added more haha. We extended it through out 2015 and ill be playing there at least once a month sometimes twice!
Where we can see you performing this year at WMC/MMW?
On the 25th Ill be at Therapy and the 27th at the Clevelander. Then on the 28th ill be heading out to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. It's going to be a fun week!
