While people across the world are asking the struggling individuals to get professional help to stabilize their mental state that has been disturbed due to the breakout of COVID-19, a global pandemic, this DJing sensation in the world of EDM has found a new way to make his fans enjoy the quarantine life.
Being locked up in a house, for a few months now, TR3AL got a chance to improve his craft further and now he wants to share his enhanced skills with his global fanbase. He states, “Overall, Covid-19 helped my creativity. I was able to pause my career and lock myself in the studio and focus on music with no distractions.” During his time at home, he has worked on his single, “Quarantune,” a track that features his iconic danceable house vibes and dynamic sound design.
Full with Passion, Struck by Inspiration, Packed with Energy
Terrel Williams, who the world knows as TR3AL, was born on April 28, 1983, in Santa Clara, California. He is an African-American who is an owner of a true Californian-personality; his love for entertainment and passion for music is something that overpowers all his desires. Even though California is not the ‘hub’ of EDM, Terrel fell in deep admiration for this genre of music. He described his love for EDM in the following words, “You might find it strange that a Californian is so passionate about EDM, a rare thing to see, no? Well, TIESTO happened to me. The moment I saw him perform, I could feel my soul leave my body to dance on his amazing tracks and mixes.”
The boy, struck by the love for EDM, developed a passion for this genre, which encouraged him to pursue a career in music. He stated, “I was always into dance music and loved the energy.” In 2017, TR3AL started DJing in his local clubs, and while doing so, he realized that to become a top DJ, there is a need to have his own music and remixes.
Creativity and uniqueness are what make TR3AL stand out amongst the crowd, and for him, these are the two factors that are crucial for success in this industry. “When it comes to dance music, you have to be creative in terms of production.” He looks at Tiësto, Steve Aoki, and Don Diablo as the biggest influencers in his life, people who instilled a passion in his heart for music and helped him learn the dos and don’ts of the EDM world. While discussing the major influencers in his life, he added, “By listening to them you can tell they have their own sound, so for me finding my sound was very important. I give a lot of credit to those three.”
