TRAXX 24: Our Interview With ZOYA
Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?
Hey guys! My name is ZOYA and Im singer-songwriter,recording artist and DJ. I like all kind of good music and Im always open to experiment with new genres but as a DJ my main focus is Trance and more uplifting psy,hardstyle and all the weird sounds. As a singer I like doing different genres.. My last song is called "InMyMind", I wrote it as a pop/house but we also did some cool remixes…One of my favourite is Anagramma's remix which is a deep house version.
How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?
I would say that my taste for good music haven't changed and I can spot a good track immediately.. As a child I used to like THE DIVAS like Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and Whitney.. I was impressed by their voices. Later on I discovered the electronic music and then I realised that's my thing. So now Im trying to combine both-strong vocals with modern sound. I think that's the key to a successful track, especially if you come with something new.
What´s new right now?
Right now Im running my radio show twice a month. Its called "Ultimate Energy" and it's every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month on Trance-Energy radio. Im preparing a live DJ Set which will be uploaded on my youtube channel, so make sure you subscribe to it, its called "zoyasmusic". Also I m planning a few new releases and a really cool cover soon. The gigs are also coming.. My summer will be fully booked so make sure you follow me on social media facebook/twitter/instagram for updates : zoyasmusic.
What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?
I wasn't sure which direction to go. I was too naive trusting people who were saying they want to help me. Some of them really helped and we built a really good relationship and connection but most of the people just tried to use you and take advantage of you.
What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?
Proving that I can do all if I put a hard work into it.. and its not only about music, its in all aspects of life. YEs, I overcome it and I keep doing it every day.
How do you personally discover new music?
Usually by youtube or shares of friends..
Once you discovered new music, do you tell others about the new music/artist you discovered? If yes, how exactly?
“Yeah, I share the new music I like on my social media…
We meet again in one year. What has changed?
Just to keep working hard.. achieving the dream and see what happens.. Life is a journey so does music
