1- Where did you grow up?
I was born and grew up in Guadalajara, Jalisco state, in Mexico.
2- What is one of the first songs you remember liking as a kid?
When I was very little and spent time in my mother's car I listened on the radio "Situations" by Yazoo. When I heard the radio by myself as a kid, first I liked "Nada Personal" by Soda Stereo and "A Forest" by The Cure. Then since 9 years old I spent my hours by night on the radio writing on paper the titles and artists on a radio station.
3- What influenced you to get into music?
Since I was 12 years old when I discovered & learned all new wave / synth bands like Depeche mode, The Cure, New Order, etc. I dreamed to have a band and do music with synthesizers. Also, when I was little kid, a friend gave me Van Halen 1984 on vinyl record and the synths on that song (1984) and Jump made me crazy about it,. Then I discovered more bands and all the new wave movement. Jean Michel Jarre was also a big influence on my teenage years and Vangelis from soundtracks like Blade Runner.
