Excuses Remix DJ Moskitto and DJ Shiva – News at Music 100 Life.
News at Music 100 Life recently caught up with DJ Moskitto and DJ Shiva, who have been making waves in the music industry with their innovative remixes. We sat down with them to talk about their process, what inspires them, and what we can expect from them in the future.
First of all, can you tell us a little bit about your musical background?
DJ Moskitto: I’ve been involved in music since I was a kid. I started out playing the piano and then picked up the guitar and started writing songs. I’ve always loved mixing different genres together and creating something new, so when I discovered electronic music it was like a whole new world opened up for me. I started experimenting with production and soon found myself drawn to creating remixes.
DJ Shiva: For me, it was always about hip-hop. Growing up in the 90s, that’s all I listened to – Tupac, Biggie, Wu-Tang Clan. But then I got introduced to Electronic Dance Music (EDM) and it completely changed my life. The energy of the music was unlike anything I’d ever experienced before and I knew that’s what I wanted to do with my life – create music that makes people feel good and gets them moving.
So how did you two meet? And how did you get into collaborating?
Moskitto: We actually met through SoundCloud – which is where we release all our remixes. We were both really into each other’s work and reached out to each other about collaborating. It just made sense – we’re both passionate about music and we share a lot of the same taste so it seemed like a natural fit. Plus, we both have experience performing live so we knew we could put on a great show if we ever had the chance to play together.
What’s the story behind your name? How did you come up with DJ Moskitto and DJ Shiva?
Moskitto: Well, my real name is Moises but everyone calls me Mo. I used to work at a coffee shop and one of the regulars there used to call me Moskitto because he thought I looked like a mosquito. It kind of stuck and when I started making music under a pseudonym, I decided to go with Moskitto.
Shiva: My name is actually Shivendeep but most people just call me Shiv. I got the name Shiva from Indian mythology – it’s the name of the god of destruction. I guess it just fits my personality – I like to go hard in everything I do, whether it’s my music or my live sets. Plus, it sounds pretty badass.
What’s the creative process like for you when you’re making a remix?
Moskitto: For me, it starts with finding the right track. I usually spend a lot of time digging through different songs and sounds until I find something that speaks to me. Once I have the track, I start mess around with it in my studio and see what kind of ideas come to me. I’ll try out different melodies and rhythms until something clicks and then build from there. It’s always a bit of trial and error but that’s part of the fun – seeing what works and what doesn’t and finding new ways to put your own spin on things.
Shiva: For me, it’s all about the vibe. I want my tracks to make people feel good so I start by finding a song that has that positive energy. Once I have the track, I start playing around with the beat and adding my own flavour to it. A lot of times, I’ll sample other tracks or use elements from other genres to create something unique. My goal is always to create something that makes people move – whether they’re dancing or just nodding their head along – and tells a story at the same time.
Do you have any advice for aspiring DJs or producers out there?
Moskitto: The best piece of advice I can give is to never give up on your dreams. When I first started out, there were a lot of times when I felt like giving up but music is my passion and I’m so glad that I stuck with it. If you’re passionate about something, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it – just go out there and do it!
Shiva: My advice would be to never stop learning. There’s always more to learn, whether it’s about music production or performing live. The more knowledge you have, the better equipped you’ll be to take your career to the next level.”
