Q&A with LouCii

How come you have been away from the music scene and why you decided to make a comeback?

 After I released my Middle Eastern / EDM fusion series, I felt fully satisfied at the time as there was nothing bigger than a 50 million album reach and globalizing the sound of the entire Middle East music. I decided to make a comeback this past year because I see a great opputunity in bringing the melodic sound back to EDM as most of what I hear today is nothing but noise and lacking the essence of what made EDM popular. Also, I want to expand EDM into different parts of the world presented in a way that will make it appreciated especially in the Middle East. I know that part better than anyone else and I know what they like and what they don’t. 

What do you say to those who claim that your name and music resembles the late AviCii?

There are a lot of haters in the music industry, I don't let that affect me, but to set the record straight, AviCii, and most of today's EDM artists were not born yet when I was one of the top EDM Djs in the USA playing in the top clubs and biggest dance music events. I was one of the first to bring the EDM sound to the USA and pave the way for the new EDM generation. I was at the top of my game before, and I will return to the top again.

What is EDM V2? What are your future plans?

EDM V2 is simply a melodic driven sound (Built on Big Room / Progressive House elements) fused with another true ethnic sound. I am choosing to start with the sounds of the Middle Eastern music, later, I will fuse it with something else.  I will release two EDM V2 tracks later this year, then I am planning on releasing a combination of at least 40 regular EDM and EDM V2 tracks in 2k19.

What makes LouCii unique?

Every artist is unique in their own way, my EDM knowledge combined with my Middle eastern music knowledge makes me a multi threat producer in addition to my IT status as one of the most sought after Cisco engineers in the world. This combination makes me different than any other artist.

Are you going to tour and DJ again?

I am planning on it. For those who experienced a LouCii Dj set in the past, they already know what that feels like, for those who have not, I can't wait to meet you and take you on the best dance music journey of your life. My DJ set can never be duplicated, you can take that to the bank. 

How do you feel about the 5 tracks you released early in 2018?

Well, they all made Top 10 on Beatport and my collab with DJ Bad Bxnny titled (Bad Bunny) earned her the award of Best DJ in 2018 at the Big Apple Music Awards "BAMA 2018". So I feel good about those yet that was just a tune up before what will drop now.
