Locals: Ed Black Interview

Where can we find your music?

I currently have no music productions out yet. Once the world goes back to normal, I will be able to travel abroad to further my knowledge in music production and hopefully release my own music in the future!


Who are you? How old are you?

My name is Edward Bugeja, I am 24 years old, and I was born and raised in Malta.

What is your stage name?

Ed Black

How many months/ years have you been Djing / producing?

I have been DJing for around 4 years now, and I started playing in local clubs a bit over 2 years ago. Production is something that I will definitely be working on in the future.

Why do you want to share your music?

When I discovered techno in my early teenage years, I instantly knew that I wanted to be part of this unique culture of music. At my first ever techno rave, I felt that I had found my safe haven and a great community of people who believed in something different.

This pocket of music has given me so many special moments as a dancer, and I hope to deliver the same special feeling that I have felt as a dancer to others listening to my music.

Mention an artist that inspired you to become a DJ/producer?

There are so many great artists that have inspired me over the years, but if I have to mention one artist that has left the biggest influence on me, it would definitely be Zak Khutoretsky aka DVS1

Is there a local artist that you look up to and love to see play at events?

It would definitely be Infinite Dub, who was previously known as Serial Depth. He plays Dub techno nowadays but he has been of great inspiration to me throughout the years. He is also a good friend of mine and still remains one of my local music heroes.
