Mikael Weermets Interview

On Sunday we were telling you about Sebastien Drums & Avicii – My Feeling For You (Tom Geiss, Mikael Weermets, Johan Wedel Remix) and I told you guys we had a lil’ surprise…Well, right before the release (May 10th) we had a chance to talk to really talented DJ/Producer Mikael Weermets, ENJOY 😉

JADORE: Hello Mikael! First of all can you start by introducing yourself to the readers, where you from etc.?
MIKAEL: Hi! My name is Mikael Weermets, 23 years old from Gothenburg Sweden!

JADORE: how did you got introduced to house music?
MIKAEL: I started listening to house music when i was 12 years old, it was all about funky house back then, i fell in love instantly, been hooked since then! 🙂

JADORE: You are releasing a remix of AVICII & Sébastien Drums “My feeling for you” alongside Johan Vedel and Tom Geiss – how did you guys met? What made you decide to work together?
MIKAEL: Me & Johan have actually known each other for years, we are close friends and hang out a lot. Tom and Imet through this wonderful world of music, we all liked this project so we just decided to do it together, like a Sweden-France connection 🙂

Sebastien Drums & Avicii – My Feeling For You (Tom Geiss, Mikael Weermets, Johan Wedel Remix)

JADORE: When you started working on the remix, what elements did you want to focus on?
MIKAEL: When we approached this one, the main thing was to do something different than the original, but a straight up dance-floor track.

JADORE: Are there any types of steps you like to stick to when attacking a new track, any kind of golden rules you like to stand by?
MIKAEL: For me, the most essential part of a track is a powerful breakdown, a hook with a melodic bass-formula that gets the dance-floor moving.

JADORE: In your “Producers Briefcase” which tools were used most when creating the remix?
MIKAEL: I have some special kicks & more atmospheric element i tend to use a lot, to get a certain feeling to the track.

JADORE: Currently you are an upcoming DJ in the house scene, your name and tracks are everywhere, what’s the secret?
MIKAEL: I think the secret is hard work. I spend all the time I can in the studio working on new projects & ideas. I have a huge line of remix inquiries that seems to be growing everyday, and that motivates me, to see that so many people would want me to approach their track. I wish I had more time, because I have to turn down so many offers, because of the lack of time.

JADORE: Do you have any upcoming solo release? What do you think 2010 has in store for you?
MIKAEL: There is a lot of solo-stuff actually. EP´s like “This Is”, “Dumdum”, “I´ll House U”, “Love Is” are strictly my own projects, and then there are lots of collaborations besides that. 2010 is going to be a great year, my schedule is packed, both gig wise & production wise, which is really fun, in this amazing world of music, you never know whats next!


JADORE: Last but not least, will we be hearing any previews of what’s cooking in the oven right now?
MIKAEL: Yes you will my friends! We just launched my official youtube-channel which will be updated weekly, with previews, studio clips & a whole lot of other fun stuff!

Love, peace & house music! Thank you!
