Hey! Introduce yourself. Where are you from?
My name is ANASASTASiiA. I was born in Ukraine and am currently living in sunny Miami.
When did you start making music?
I have always been messing around with music since my childhood. I remember when I was 5 I heard the track Children by Robert Miles and since then I fell in love with this kind of music. When I was 18 I started singing. I recorded a few songs but always did it for fun and never took it seriously. Only when I came to the US I understood how different the music scene is here and I took it more seriously and dug more into it.
Who inspired you to start making music?
Old school trance producers. As you can see I have some trancy vibes in my tracks and I love it.
How would you describe your music style?
It’s a mix of some modern progressive house with a little bit trancy vibes as I said before. That’s actually what inspired me most trance genre. But my next releases will be more dark with some techno style but still, I’ll remain melodic as I think it’s all about melody.
Who are you listening to now?
Tale Of Us, Anyma, Camelphat, Meduza…
What’s your best project or single so far?
From the results of 2022 my track Skyline is one of the best-selling and streaming track of all Interplay labels and there are 5 of them: the main label and 4 sub-labels. So I think it’s kind of a big one.
Any upcoming releases from you to look out for?
Oh yes. I have one for sure scheduled for January 13. It’s my first independent release with German singer Yna. Then I have a remix for a track by Heerhorst coming soon as well. In March I have one more track coming on Interplay, and in May I have an EP coming on Freegrant Music and one more track on Purified at the beginning of 2023. So as you see my 2023 is starting to be busy already.
