If you are ready for some great euphoric and energetic Hardstyle, be sure you catch me playing on the Main Hardstyle stage of Dance Valley 2015
We had the honour to have a little chat with Fabian Schmidt, also known as Omegatypez. He started off his musical journey as Omegatypez back in 2011 as the tracks ‘Wanna Feel’ and ‘Dirty Style’ got released. He singed at Fusion Records and Omegatypez was off!
So Fabian, what does music in general mean to you?
‘I could not imagine a life without music. I think music is a way to express emotion. Music can bring you up when your down and is a form of expression.’
Did you got the interest in music from your parents?
‘Yes, my parents brought me up with a lot of different music, but I think the interest in music came by itself. Back in the days I started to listen House and Drum ’n Bass. And a couple years later I remember a party were I heard Headhunterz playing for the first time. I think that was the moment the Hardstyle thing started for me!’
What music do you listen to besides hardstyle?
‘I guess almost everything! I really like Zedd and Axwell & Ingrosso for example. I also like music from the 80’s.’
Do you have secret hobby?
‘No, haha, I don’t have a secret hobby! Too bad huh 😀 !? I play football in my hometown, so that’s not a surprising hobby I guess. Besides that I like gaming and hanging around with my friends.’
What are the things that can annoy you?
‘Oh man, I hate it when I’m having issue’s with my computer while I’m producing. I happens occasionaly that my computer crashes when I’m working on a track. That’s something I find REALLY annoying! Another anoying thing for me is delay while I’m traveling, or when a flight is cancelled. When the schedule is tight you don’t want any delay.’
What job would you have had if you weren’t an artist?
‘After school I actually wanted to be a police man! But I had to make a decision if I wanted to go on with my education or go to for my music a ful 100%. And I’m glad with the choice I made!’
What did you had to sacrifice to become the artist you are right now?
‘Especially time and effort. When I chose to go for a carreer as an artist I knew it would take a lot of time and effort to make it work. So I think those are the most important things I had to sacrifice.’
What inspires you?
‘Headhunterz has always been a great inspiration for me. His music made me wanted to do the same thing, in my own way off course. Also a lot of other big artist inspire me to improve my skills and do what I like. Not only Hardstyle music, but also other genres inspire me.
What’s your favourite dish/food?
‘Ehm, I have to say that I love food in general haha! But I like meat a lot, and I guess the basic stuff.’
Who are you taking with you to Dance Valley 2015?
‘I think I will bring along my group of friends. Last year I also took some friends with me and we had an awesome time. While I’m not playing we will walk around and explore the festival grounds.’
We are stoked you’re playing at Dance Valley, why shouldn’t all the hardstyle lovers miss you set?
‘I will play a lovely euphoric set which will fill the Valley with uplifting melodies. I think my style fits perfect to the ‘Festival/Summer feeling’. So if you are ready for some great euphoric and energetic Hardstyle, be sure you catch me playing on the Main Hardstyle stage of Dance Valley 2015!’
