1. Hi Jurgen, your new EP has just been released, how did your collaboration with the prestigious Planet Rhythm label come about? Were you inspired by anything in particular?

It’s all born in a causal way , with the help of my manager Helmar Teti. I was really mad because I couldn’t place this ep , especially on importants labels . Then my manager said to me to try with Planet Rhythm and do the release also on vinyl , because of their work also as distributor.
But it was only a hypothesis because we didn’t talk with them and to be honest I was really sad that I neither think to that. Thanks gosh that there is someone that bring me in the right way and then started this amazing collaboration with Marco, the owner of the label and the rest of the group.
The inspiration of this ep born as a sequel of my last releases, Expecially because I had a long period of stop with covid -19 , but I found the right inspiration that bring me to that.
