article imageLost Frequencies talks 'Crazy,' electronic music, plans for 2018 Special

Electronic producer and DJ Lost Frequencies chatted with Digital Journal about his track "Crazy," plans for 2018, as well as the digital transformation of the electronic dance music (EDM) industry.
On the idea for the track "Crazy," he said, "I met Zonderling last year, and immediately fell in love with the quality productions and vibes of this amazing duo. They first made a remix of my cover single 'What is love,' and we started working on a new original track together because I really wanted to merge our two sounds together! That's when we created 'Crazy' together, a perfect combination of our two worlds! I'm so happy to share this track with the world, and blown away by the amazing feedback!"
This year, Lost Frequencies entered the prestigious DJ Magazine Top 100 DJs poll at No. 26, which was the highest new entry. "That was crazy! Insane! Like nothing I had ever imagined. Again, I am very lucky and humbled," he exclaimed.
His plans for the future involve many new tour dates. "I'll be playing in South America, Colombia, in January and then back to Europe before I start touring with Don Diablo on his U.S. Future tour where I'm a special guest. I always really enjoy being on the road. I'll be concentrating on my label, building up our release schedule and what we have planned for the first part of the year. I've had an amazing year, my first solo arena show at the Lotto Arena in my home of Belgium, becoming the highest new entry in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll, it's just been unreal and I can't wait for my next chapter," he said.
Lost Frequencies is drawn to electronic music due to its "variety." "I like to call my music 'indie dance' because I like electronic music and I really enjoy rock music, so I like to think I'm a combination of both. I think that is the most exciting thing about electronic music, you can enjoy so many varieties and genres, like techno, house, hardstyle, and tropical. The spectrum is so wide and vast," he explained.
The young producer and DJ shared that he finds his musical inspiration in a lot of different places, which include the countries he travels to and his relationships. "My motivation is the music I make. I have so much fun and have so much enjoyment doing what I do, I wouldn't change it for anything," he said.
Digital transformation of electronic music: Through the eyes of Lost Frequencies
On the impact of technology in the electronic music industry, Lost Frequencies said, "It has changed it in the most amazing way." "Without technology, where would we be? It gives us, both as artists and fans, the freedom to create," he said.
As an electronic musician, Lost Frequencies uses technology in his music routine. "I work mainly on Logic but I first started on Garage Band, and when I first began producing music, I watched YouTube tutorials, learning tricks and my first steps. I'm on my computer learning every day and producing, so I use technology in both my work and personal life daily," he said.
For his hardcore electronic fans, Lost Frequencies concluded, "Thank you for everything. I couldn't have done it without your support."
Lost Frequencies defined the word success as "Staying chill and being happy." To learn more about Lost Frequencies, check out his official website.
