An Interview With SOSA

SOSA,  a name which is massively on the rise in the underground music scene with both productions and live DJ sets. With gaining heavy support from some of the scenes leading names we thought it was time to catch up and see what else is happening behind closed doors.

How long have you been producing music for?

5 years

How did you first get into the idea of becoming a DJ?

At a music festival called Creamfields in the UK. I can remember seeing Avicii and thinking that’s what I want to do. And so it began!

What can we expect to hear next from you?

A lot of big room music and a lot of exciting collabs coming on some exciting labels!

What does your music production setup consist of?

My setup is really basic . I have a razer gaming laptop with Ableton, an Apollo twin interface and a pair of really cheap headphones off Amazon called OneAudio.

What track of yours so far that you have released is your favourite? 

I think my favourite track I have released is ‘Needs‘. It didn’t get the credit it deserved but for me it’s a certified banger.

You’ve received some mega support so early in your career, who has been some of your idols who have been supporting?

I’ve been very fortunate to get some crazy support from all my idols like Camelphat, Solardo etc but the biggest one for me is Calvin Harris!

If you could work with any artist, who would it be and why?

If I could work with any artist at the minute it would be Billie Eilish. I just think there’s something about her voice that’s special and it would work really well on a house track I think.

Where do you call your hometown? 

My home town is Liverpool.

When working on your productions, how do you normally get a track started?

I usually start my tracks by making my drums and then I try to get a solid baseline going. I actually make my “drop” first and then work from there.

What would you say a reoccurring sound is that you use in majority of your productions?

Hmmm. This is a hard one! I use the same open hat in every song and when talking to people about music they always bring up my hat and my drums hahaha so it must be a noticeable thing!

Have you gone full time with music or do you still have a day job too? 

I’m fortunate enough to have gone full time with music recently, but I did work 12 hour night shifts while juggling music for 2 years so it can be done!
