Music is the host language and has no boundaries! To be part of artists’ lives is a big dream for us and now that we have been reached by new music, we are extremely happy to present you the gigantic artist “Artento Divini”

Where are you from?
I am from the Netherlands!

Who are your biggest artistic influences?
“At the moment, I listen a lot to techno producers like Danny Avila and Umek and try to combine this with melodic breaks and short builds. However, my biggest music influence is the man who brought Melvin Warning and me into the studio, Randy Katana. That Tech-Tribal-Trance sound still grabs me; it feels like you hear a steam train in these beats that just wants to go.”

Tell me about how your creation part begins, and how your workflow is.
“My days start at 7 a.m. to wake up and take care of our special needs daughter, who is 4.5 years old. I go through all the rituals before she goes to a special needs childcare from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.When I get back home, I grab breakfast and check some social media before going into the studio. I don’t have a real workflow; I only have a limited time of 3 days a week from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to produce or master tracks for clients.”

Where do you find inspiration?
“I love listening to many different genres of music. When I have an amazing gig, I try to keep that vibe in the studio, and sometimes ideas pop up during the day. However, I have to be honest; since we had our daughter, it doesn’t happen as much anymore. :(“

When is your favorite time of day to create your music?
“My favorite time to create music is during the night, and now I try to push myself in the studio from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., in addition to the limited time I have during the day. However, when my nights are interrupted, it’s hard to push yourself. 

Describe how art is essential to society nowadays
“People are visually oriented. The problem with social media and TV is that opinions are visualized and formed quickly. When a group of people looks at the same thing, a discussion can arise because everyone has their own opinion. But with music, it’s different; it goes deeper and evokes emotion in a completely different way. When a group of people listens to music, a feeling is created, which people radiate and share, creating a vibe. For example, on the dance floor.”

What motivates you to create?
“All the emotions I have at the moment and what I am going through serve as a kind of outlet through music.”

How do you define success as a music artist?
“I don’t define success by big cars or houses; I define success as having the freedom and luxury to produce music, pay your bills, and maintain a balanced, happy, and healthy lifestyle.”

Does art help you in other areas of your life?
“Music helps me in every area of my life. Whether I’m stressed, at the gym, or on my way somewhere, I always listen to music or the radio.”

How do you develop your art skills?
“As a producer, I watch tutorials in the evening. Recently, I bought a bunch of presets for Serum, but they were built in newer versions and are not compatible with the version of Serum I use. So, I re-create the cool sounds in my Serum, which runs on OSX 10.10. Now I really understand what is going on and how some of the effects are created. :)”

What is your next move?
“To reinstall my Mac Pro 2010 with a new SSD, it is still on OSX 10.10, but it’s not connected to the internet. That’s the key.” 🙂

Where will we see you in 5 years?
Hopefully still active in the music industry and onstage.
