What is your name?
Hi, I’m Luca Schreiner
What is your genre of music?
I would describe my genre of music as a cross over between Dance and Pop music.
Give us a little bio about you.
I’m a 25 years old artist from Germany. I’ve already had the chance to work as remixer for artists such Shaggy, James Arthur, Kelly Clarkson, Clean Bandit, Backstreet Boys and many more! Besides that I’m also releasing my own original songs. I’m signed with Ultra Music, the US- based music label which is the home of artists such as Kygo, Deorro, Steve Aoki and many more.
What made you go into music?
Due to my dad, who’s in the music industry for quiet some time now, I’ve always been in touch with music, in particular electronic music, from a very young age on. When I was 16 years of age, I then got into music production and literally started from scratch by watching tutorials on YouTube.
You released your single ‘Tomorrow’, tell us more about the single. What is the meaning behind it?
Tomorrow was super special to me, since the song was a bit different in terms of its style than the other songs I’ve worked on. It was way more „Pop“ which was great! I’m a big fan of experimenting with different styles and genres and feel like being open minded about every musical style is what makes a good producer.
Describe the track in two words.
What was the recording & writing process like?
Working on „Tomorrow“ was so much fun, since it was a little more „Pop“ than the other projects I usually work on. The song is really driven by its vocals. At first we had some difficulties finding the right singer for it though. We’ve tried recording the song with different singers, but I didn’t work out the way I wanted it to sound until I had the idea of sending it to Adam Turley. I know Adam for quiet some time now and we always wanted to get a song out together. I’ve sent him the idea of „Tomorrow“ and he absolutely loved it. After hearing the first demo of him singing on the track I knew he’d be the right one for this song. He absolutely nailed it and I’m so happy to have this track out together with him
Do you enjoy working and collaborating with other writers and artists?
Absolutely, it’s always great to link up with likeminded people that share the same musical vision and idea. Also, since I’m not a singer myself it’s always super helpful to have someone with me that can translate the idea I have in mind.
Will we see an EP or album and if so, what can we expect? When will new Luca music be coming?
You expect a lot of new original songs! I’ve never had this many songs ready at the same time and me and my team are just trying to find the best release-schedule for all these tracks.
What else can we expect in 2019/Early 2020? Do you have any tours in mind?
For the next months I’m fully focused on writing and producing new music really. But no worries new tour dates are coming for next summer!
You have remixed some very well known artists, how did they come about and what was your reaction?
I was literally blown away by the fact that these established and well-known artists wanted me to do a remix for their song. It all started with a bunch of remixes I put on my SoundCloud, that did quite well. After some time, the first artists & labels reached out to me who liked what I did.
Will we see any new remixes in the future? Or are you more poised to release solo music?
I have a few new remixes that will be coming out early next year. But I’m mainly focusing on my own songs at the moment.
Do you play any instruments?
Unfortunately I don’t play any instruments! I basically learned everything I do by trial & error or by watching hundreds of YouTube tutorials on how to produce and write music.
How do you get inspiration to write songs?
I think what’s really important to stay inspired is, to get out and spent time with people. Another thing I love to do to get inspired is to jump in the car and just listen to some radio music. There’s so much great music out there and while listening to the radio you’ll just open your musical mind for new styles and genres which are still commercially viable in a way, since they’re getting played on the radio.
Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?
The biggest goal I have in my career is to see people continue enjoying my music and coming to my shows. There’s just no better feeling than seeing people having a great time to your music. So hopefully I’ll still see myself producing and playing my music to others and see them enjoying what I do.
What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?
The song that got me into electronic music was „Adagio for Strings“ by Tiesto. Oldschool Trance at its best 😉
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
One of the biggest advices my dad always gave me is to never give up. No matter if a single or a remixes is sometimes not working as expected, continue working on new music and sooner or later your music will find its way to the people. I’m really happy to have someone this experienced in music business next to me.
What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?
I would really say that young aspiring musicians should open their mind to every genre. You’ll learn so much just from analyzing other styles and genres, either it’s how the music is written or how elements and sounds in this particular genres work.
What quote or saying do you always stick by?
„Never give up”
Where in your hometown is a must go to visit?
My hometown is Stuttgart and it’s definitely a must go to visit city! It’s a city full of history, since it’s the place where Mercedes and Porsche was built.
Your coming off tour;
1/ Where do you go first?
Probably I’ll first go home to rest for a bit and recharge the batteries.
2/ Who do you see first? Probably my girlfriend and my family. It’s just the best to spend time with them and sometimes it’s also great to just step back from music for a moment.
3/What do you eat first? You’d probably see me eating a takeaway Pizza. HUGE fan of Pizza and after a stressful tour it’s just the right thing to eat I guess.
Do you have social media accounts so your fans can follow you?
You can follow me basically everywhere. Just type in my name on whatever platform and you should be able to find me.
Thanks for your time!
Thanks for having me!
