Similarly, Dark Drake has also risen as one of Italy’s most talented exports.

With its heart-pumping basslines and gargantuan synths, “Low5” can absolutely dominate any festival or club stage around the world.
We sat down with Dark Drake to discuss latest release, his debut performance at Tomorrowland and many more, read the interview below:
Tell us about the origin of your music. How did you discover your sound?
I never had a particular or specific sound, every project has its own sound. If you listen to my music, you can hear that it is neither House nor Deep. I prefer genre with a lot of energy like Bass house, to name one of them.
Who do you consider to have been your biggest influences throughout your career that have made an impact on your productions?
I always look at Calvin Harris for his passion and his general career. I love the passion to music that he has. He is a singer and an incredible producer. Who would not want work in the studio with him? I think everyone would like to have the possibility to create a song with him.
You’ve just released a massive record titled “Low5” on Tommie Sunshine’s imprint Brooklyn Fire. Could you tell us how the track came to life?
In the last year and still now, I’m working on all my projects with Rasalifers. We met some months ago and we find the main melody of the drop. We immediately felt it right. Then we finished the track in some weeks. I tried some times to send to Tommie and when he finally heard it, he immediately texted me that he was really amazed by our track!
Speaking of your latest track, it received huge amount of support from the likes of Hardwell, David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Afrojack & Ummet Ozcan to name a few. How does it feel to get support from artists like that? And what’s the best piece of advice you’d give to aspiring producers?
It was a huge honor to be supported by this artists. Every singular support is another brick on our career. Everytime, we try to catch more supporters. For the new producers I can only say that you have to believe on your track and think big. You have to look only on your objective.Don’t look the haters, don’t look on nothing. You have just to believe on your dream and you have to focus on every step. Don’t get rid of the “no” because one day they will become a “yes”.
Congratulations on being announced as part of Tomorrowland’s 2017 lineup. Could you give us hint about your preparations for the set? Any surprises we can expect?
I tend to not prepare my set before the gigs. I have never prepared before my set, because every place could be different and you have to be prepared to the reaction of the crowd that is in front of you. I will try to do the same thing for Tomorrowland.
What are some of your plans for 2017? Any follow-ups? Upcoming singles?
I have just begun my own label Geometries. I’m trying to share my music in the world, I hope to have good feedbacks. I have another track on Brooklyn Fire with Rasalifers and more music with others labels.
