INTERVIEW: Todd Helder

-Hi Todd, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

I’m doing great, I just released my new single on STMPD RCRDS called ‘Smile’.

-Firstly how did you get into DJing and producing?

I got into music production when I was around 15 years old, at first I was just playing around until I entered a remix contest for Marshmello’s ‘Alone’ and won, after that things started to become more serious but a lot more fun!

-Are there any inspirations behind your track ‘Pixel Love’ that you’d like to share?

At the time when I made the track I was super inspired by Louis the Child & Whethan, their productions are super sick & their sound design is super awesome as well.

-Any plans to release a video for the single?

Not at this moment.

-How was the recording and writing process, has it been a long time in the making?

The track actually only took me a few hours to create because I had already built and heard how I wanted the track to sound in my head. I like to bring bits of EDM and Trap into a lot of my productions but I also really appreciate Jazz too and added some smooth piano chords, so it’s a real blend of all the music I love.

-Does the new single mean we can expect some more new material from you – how’s that coming along?

Now I’ve released ‘Smile’, my next main goal is my album. I’ve been working on it for a while now, and it’s grown into something a lot bigger than I thought it would.

-You’ve just performed your first show at Ushuaïa supporting Martin Garrix, how was this experience?

Crazy, the fact that this was my third ever gig is unreal. Ushuaïa was the one that did it for me. The fact that I got to play on the same stage as some of the most iconic musicians of all time was unreal. The best moments of my set were when my fans where singing along with my songs which gave me a lot of energy and happy vibes.

-What else is happening next in Todd Helder’s world?

Lots of new music coming!
