Does your Pseudonym Irregular Synth have a deeper meaning?
“Irregular Synth” means a kind of sound which is simply “Not regular”. I chose this name because in studio i usually use some machine that gonna totally change the original synth, so, some collegue called me “Irregular Synth” and from that time I adopted it and it became my “Artist name””
You are touring a lot, please tell us something about your experience and what is your favorite city or country you had been playing?

If you could define the music you make, curate and play without using genre terms like house or techno, how would you describe it?

What’s your favorite producing tool and do you also use hardware for your productions?
“I use a lots of hardware, my last gift in studio was the ROLAND AIRA series, but my favorite hardware it’s the Moog, my bassline it’s from the moog,and for me kick and bass it’s the 80% of the power of the track,even the synths sometimes are out from the moog.”
Do current, contemporary sounds and styles influence you in the Studio? Or would you describe it as a timeless working environment?
“I always try to do what i feel and what i love,my influence is what i feel during my shows around the world,i bring in my studio the crowd powerfull for do the best track ever.”

After 1 hour of my set the dancefloor was totally in rave,and my big mate Angy Kore said “Vinz jump on the desk” it was really funny do it,it was just once in my life,but really funny!!
