Q: Who is Nei Fidelis? Talk us about yourself or any story about your life that you want to share.
R: Since I was a little boy music was part of my life. I remember that with twelve years old I used to create melodies in my mind.

I liked to listen a lot of new age, synth pop and disco stuff. But where I lived it was difficult to a boy have an keyboard or something.

Q: How did it all start for you?
R: At age of thirtheen a friend has borrowed me an simple 3 octaves keyboard and this was funny. And I used record dance music on cassete tapes, and I used to play making transitions between tapes, beatmaching, speeding up with a touch in the pause button while I was holding the play button locked, or decreasing the speed pressing the roll. I learned beatmaching before my very first contact on turntables. I start to play on turntables at age of fourteen, not in clubs, just in friends parties.

Q: About your inspiration: please tell us about this, the inspiration behind your productions.
R: A lot of things. Music from my favourite artists - electronic music or not - videogames and movies soundtracks or even urban sounds. I like to walk around subjects in some music, I already did music about videogames, about life out of earth, about dreams, etc.

Actually I am very inspired by stuations and ambience.

Q: What the music brought for your life after begin the carrer like DJ/producer?
R: When I was a young DJ in the early 90's, I was loving to hear and play that pop eurodance and underground house from late 80's and I wanted to do it but I did not have access to the equipment needed at the time. So I discovered the rock, I learned to play guitar and bass and I had some rock bands between 2000 and 2009. Just in 2012 I came back to be DJ side oh the life (!!!) and in late 2013 I started to produce my own music.

Q: You is an excellent producer in genre Techno! Do you started in techno at the beginning of your productions?
R: Actually no. I started making progressive house and electro house, but when I had a more serious contact with the techno vibe I was infatuated!

Q: Some DJ/producer that inspires your productions?
R: Every day even an new producer can inspires me like my heros does. But some artists guided me to the way i would to go. My first contact in techno which i pay close attention is names like Christian Smith, Green Velvet, Nicole Moudaber, Hollen, The Chemical Brothers and others. But I wanted to make music since when I was a boy and I was listening Information Society, AB Logic, 49ers, Donna Summer etc.

Q: Tell us: your best production that you considers today.
R: It's complicated to choose it because I did a lot of unreleased music who I like very much, before my first track released.

I prefeer to think that I will still do my best track. Between my released tracks at the moment I like very much of the results on "24 senses" and "Cat wiggle".

Q: What are currently your main challenges as a producer?
R: To do quality music, which people like to hear inside and outside the dance floor, which to boost the energy in the day-by-day and make myself and the listeners happier.

Q: Only one tip for new producers and DJs.
R: Listen carefully to the sound that inspires you and learn how to make your sound. If you have a sound type as a parameter, use it as a comparison. And when you reach that goal use your creativity with a quality basis to create the sound with your own identity.

Q: Do you follow sports, or have any hobbies outside of music?
R: Currently I've been just doing fitness by health. I like to run across the coast in the city I live. When I was younger I walked in inline skates and I used to play inline skates hockey. I like videogames and I am an motorsports passionate. I go to run in cart when I can and I still want to build my own trackdays car.

Q: Next steps about your project like DJ/producer?
R: I just arrived in europe, I arrived in june, so of course I want to play here! And improve my studio to be able to do more quality stuff.

Q: Tell us any thing. Topic free for end your interview.
R: It is gratifying to be able to answer these questions as someone who has a recognition for the work done.
