Wasabi: 2018 has been a busy year with big highlights! My label has reached the highest position with ‘Hazzaro’ and ‘Make My Day’ at Beatport’s position 2 overall!
We had great singles, plus a few amazing label showcases. The best was in Ibiza on July with Pax at Ibiza Rocks!
EG: You recently released the Sensation track. What was the inspiration to produce it?
Wasabi: My aim is to create music with passion and to give artists something interesting for their sets! The biggest motivation for me is to create tracks with emotional elements!
EG: Tell us about your Erase Records label. When it was founded and what’s the concept behind?
Wasabi: Erase Records has been founded in London in 2003. It was created during my travelling to that city and the parties I had there! I had so many friends giving me demos and I thought it was the right timing to open a label and releasing that music.
