Spanish music producer, DJ and remixer DOMO is one artist who continues to stay on our radar. He created a particularly unique sound, floating somewhere between melodic and deep house, with its own touch of freshness.
He recently released his latest EP ‘Juca’ on David Hohme’s Where The Heart Is Records and the result is spectacular. The EP’s title track is a catchy club record that draws listeners in with its tasteful and energetic groove. The sampling is impeccable, seamlessly weaving a male Spanish voice with an elevated female voice that locks into the haunting rhythm. “Erhu” is the second and final track, crowning the EP beautifully with its rich tapestry of ambient melodies and driving four to the floor.
Choosing to release David Hohme’s ‘Juca’ EP on Where The Heart Is Records was a natural move for DOMO, who previously worked with the label on their 2021 track ‘Wrongs’. As DOMO continues to make its mark on the electronic music scene with the haunting sound of “Juca” and the collaborative spirit of Where The Heart Is Records, we are thrilled to bring you an exclusive interview with the artist. Enjoy!
How do you maintain originality in your musical production when there are so many influences and styles out there?
In an industry where an average of 50,000 titles are released on digital platforms per day, you have to be original to get noticed. Throughout my discography, you will find melodic, deep, minimal or tech house influences. It’s only through hard work and countless hours of listening to music that I always find a way to be original without copying an existing idea. Originality is the ability to think independently and creatively.
How do you think the electronic music industry is evolving and what role do you hope to play in this evolution?
The music industry is mostly trend-based, although there is a rise in many variations of electronic music. My goal is to keep making unique house music and stay true to myself.
From an artist perspective, what do you think sets Where The Heart Is Records apart from other labels in the industry?
I believe that “Where the heart is” really cares about its artists. David remains close to their musical careers and keeps in touch with them. I think David and Will (Vance) have a natural approach, creating a very professional working atmosphere.
How do you stay inspired and keep your music fresh in an ever changing industry?
You can find inspiration everyday and everywhere. It’s just a matter of perspective. I recently spent some time in Madrid and was inspired by the sound of its streets, so I pulled out my phone and recorded this unique texture.
What advice do you have for budding music producers and DJs looking to break into the electronic music scene?
Stay true to yourself, do it for the right reasons and don’t give up!
