Futuremag Music: How did you move into music initially?
Leotrix: I was always surrounded by music and I think ever since I was 2, I've always had some sort of fascination with music. I started seriously writing songs when I was about 8 and I was writing metal/rock songs and I was playing guitar. By the time I was 12, I found dance music and wanted to delve deeper into that.
Futuremag Music: We recently premiered your new single ‘Love Like’, what was the process of creating such a delicious club tune?
Leotrix: Well thank you for calling it delicious! Hahahaha. It came together in my bedroom and I was just mucking around with sounds. But the title of the song came about as like a manifestation of love. I wanted to find love in another person like I had always imagined it. I wrote the song last year before I started dating Tamikah, but I feel like it was about the love I now share with her.
Futuremag Music: What are your thoughts on the future of club music for here in Australia?
Leotrix: It has diversified so much in recent years, all the cliques of the different genres are starting to break and everyone knows each other. All the clubs are starting to book all kinds of different artists and it's creating this new wave of club music. Everyone is welcome and it's like, there's a little bit of everything for everyone in the new club music that's coming out now.
Futuremag Music: You're quickly becoming a tastemaker for club music here in Australia, who on the international stage and locally are pushing the genre?
Leotrix: Internationally, dudes like Kayzo, Snails and Herobust are all bringing out that new sound. Locally you've got, LUUDE, Enschway, Hydraulix and Oski.
Futuremag Music: What does the future look like for Leotrix?
