TSS: At what point did you decide you wanted to be a musician?
Martin Jensen: I started Djing when I was 15 and producing music in 2014. Let’s just say I haven’t looked back since!
TSS: What drew you to becoming a musician?
Martin Jensen: I’ve always loved music and entertaining people. Being a musician just feels like the right place to be!
TSS: If you could collaborate with any artist, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Martin Jensen: Martin Garrix because he’s freaking awesome! I really like his sound and I think with my expertise in melody and lyrics we could make a smashing hit!
TSS: How would you define your sound?
Martin Jensen: My sound is pretty unique. You can hear the same feel throughout each song whether that be through a remix I’ve made or my own singles. I want to say it’s “happy house”- major key and an upbeat melody, plus I’m a huge fan of incorporating the piano!
TSS: What festival or venue do you dream of playing?
Martin Jensen: I want to play Ultra Miami mainstage. I’ve watched the playbacks on YouTube and it looks amazing! I really hope one day I’ll get the chance to play there!
TSS: Do you have any preshow rituals? If so, what are they?
Martin Jensen: Before most shows during my intro I do a quick set of pushups to get my energy levels up so I can give my best show all the time!
TSS: What was the inspiration behind your recent track, “Wait?”
Martin Jensen: I got the lyrics from a Swedish singer songwriter team and I knew I wanted to make it my next track. Then I found the perfect match for the vocals with Loote and the rest is history!
TSS: How’d you decide to incorporate your fans voices into the high-energy track?
Martin Jensen: I really wanted to keep my fans in the project just like i have with all my other singles and I thought it could be fun to have them send in videos of them singing the track so I could add them to the chorus! Thank you fans!
TSS: Will you continue to incorporate your fans into your music? Why or why not?
Martin Jensen: Yes! It’s been working out really well for me so I can’t see why I would stop involving my fans.
TSS: What do you have in store for the rest of 2017?
Martin Jensen: I have a lot of remixes coming out and shows all over the world. I can’t wait! Plus, a new single to look forward to in 2018! Watch this space!
