Klox
Hailing from Montreal, Vincent Dupont aka Klox is making his way through electronic music and Pop as a Producer. This interesting interview will allow you to discover basically everything about himself and his new artistic project.

1 – You’ve been Producing since…
First off, I am a singer and songwriter but last summer, after moving to Montreal, I decided to build my own studio and learn the basics of producing. That’s when I realized what I wanted to do as an artist. So, I would say I’ve been producing since summer 2018.

2 – You got involved in the music realm because…
Music has always been part of my life. I remember listening to old Rock records when I was a kid and dreaming about being on a stage playing guitar and singing in front of thousands of people. I started playing guitar and singing when I was 16 years old and I got in the music realm without really noticing it, probably because I was really passionate about it and knew I had something to say and music seemed to be the best way for me to say it.

I then started writing songs and a couple of years later, I decided to make a career out of my passion and started living off my music, starting with a French Pop/Folk project. Fast-forward a couple of years later and here I am, launching this new project in a new music genre and being pretty excited about it!

3 – Your sound is…
As I said, I spent the last few years working as a songwriter/singer and producing is kind of a new thing for me. So, after hundreds of Pop songs written, I think Pop music really has had an influence on my style. I try to blend EDM elements with my Pop songwriting and influences. That’s why I consider my sound to be Future Pop music.

4 – Your biggest inspiration is…
I started producing electronic music because I was kind of obsessed with the way Flume treats sounds and music in general. I don’t know if he’s had that much influence on my sound, but I’m definitely inspired by the freedom he allows himself with his work when he’s in the studio.

5 – Fans should listen to your new single “Back Together” because…
Well, it is my first single, so it’s the best way to discover where my career is heading at the moment. I have worked on several tracks in the past year and this is the one that seems perfect to launch this new project. I think it shows what I am influenced by as a songwriter, but also as a producer.

6 – If you want to know who Klox is, listen to the track…
I think “Back Together” is a good track to start with. Not saying that because it is my first single, but because it reflects who I am as an artist. I want to be involved in every facet of writing, recording and producing and this is what I’ve done with “Back Together”. In fact, you can even hear me sing a few lines on the track!

7 –Your most memorable career moment so far has been…
Too early to tell, but the last year has been really great. I produced the tracks you’re going to hear in the next few months and had the chance to meet and work with really talented artists. It’s only the beginning, but it’s a pretty nice one!

8 – Your dream is…
Of course, I would like to have the chance to play my music in front of big crowds all around the world, but I have a simpler dream: I want to keep making music as a living. If I can achieve that and call myself an artist for the rest of my career, I’ll be more than happy. It is the best job in the world and can be really hard sometimes, but in the end, it’s all worth it. I want my career to last.

9 – Your next release is called…
“Back Together”. It will be released this fall and I think the following track will be a beautiful and smooth song named “Lost In The Cloud”… To be continued. ☺

10 – Your all-time favourite track is…
It has nothing to do with what I’m doing right now, but I would say it is “Champagne Supernova” by Oasis.

11 – Your favourite venue/club is…
A venue in Quebec City called Imperial Bell.

12 – If you weren’t a DJ and Producer you’d probably be…
I’m already a singer/songwriter so I would probably focus on that. But If I had to stop making music, I think I’d probably work in advertising as a creative or become a video editor. Something like that.

13 – You’ll only stop making music if…
I would find a way to make music even if I went deaf…

14 – In a few years, you want to be…
Get better as a producer and hopefully have my music heard all around the globe! I’d like to travel the world and have my music played everywhere.

15 – What are you doing for the rest of the day?
Will probably go out for a coffee, work on a couple of song ideas, eat and watch the Office TV show and go to sleep! It’s been a long day. ☺
