Words by Topic.

As a musician, music is what describes me and my personality and my growth best. I have a lot of artists from different genres, who inspire me. But what I gathered over the years is that I like melancholic songs the most. Even the saddest songs make me happy in a way. Maybe that's why I chose to make dance music with melancholic lyrics and even named it that way ("Melancholic Dance Music").

Swedish House Mafia - Don't You Worry Child

This is one of the most influential songs for me I would say and one of the reasons I diverted to dance music in the first place.

Major Lazer - Lean On

This track alone changed the industry so much in my opinion. It kinda set the sound for a new era in dance music. I remember when it came out, I was blown away.

Avicii - Wake Me Up

Just like 'Lean On', this song set new bars. It gave my first album 'Miles' so much inspiration. Avicii... an exceptional artist gone too soon!

Eminem - Lose Yourself

This is one of the first CD's I ever bought. I can still recall almost out whole school wanting to become a rapper after 8 Mile and this song. It's timeless.

All songs by Rüfüs Du Sol

I find them to be incredible with such a unique sound. Also, Rüfüs Du Sol's live performances are something else!
