Locals: INVECTIVE Interview

Where can we find your music?

Who are you? How old are you?

I am Steve Falzon (Invective) and I am 28 years old

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

I have been Djing and producing for about 10 years.

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

A huge inspiration for me has always been Perc, especially in my earliest years I have always been inspired by Perc in terms of DJing and production.
More recently I’ve been greatly inspired by I hate models in terms of DJing.

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

One artist that I respect a lot and always enjoy listening to is Acidulant.
There are a lot of talented local artists in the scene at the moment. A few other mentions would be Scythe, Inverted, Antimatter, Natura2k and Obsequent

What skills do you think DJs need to be successful?

The ability to adapt to the crowds’ energy on the fly, improvising and being creative with your sets.
Also, follow whichever time slot you are given and respect the flow of the event.

How do you stay up to date with the latest music trends?

Every now and then I open up Spotify and SoundCloud and I just search for artists that I am already familiar with.
I listen to sets and search in the comments for tracks that interest me or use Shazam to find it.
It’s always interesting to go down that rabbit hole for hours and finding gems with a few plays.

What would you say is the most rewarding part of being a DJ?

When you drop a filthy banger and you see the crowd just losing it.
It’s cliche but for me that’s the best part, the goosebumps you get from those moments is unmatched.
