Music is an ever changing and growing concept. It needs to move forward.

1) Hello. Please tell me shortly about yourself. My name Andrew LaFleur, better known as Atragun in the music world. I am DJ & Producer who mainly specializes in electronic music (mainly trance and progressive) and currently lives in New York City.
2) Your first meeting with music as artist, compose, dj. My first meeting with music was around 6 years of age when I began taking piano lessons. My first meeting with electronic music was in the late 90's/early 2000's with Daft Punk's one more time and Eiffel 65's Blue
3) How long time you making, playing music. I've been producing since with Logic Pro 8 since July of 2008 (although I briefly produced with Garage Band in 2006). I also was in my middle school/high school band from 2002-2009
4) What is music for you? For me music is something that gives me a reason to keep trying to move to the next level, it is something is universal and can be shared by everyone. Without out I don't know who I would be today and where I would be today.
5) Your favourite record of all the time. Hard to choose just one! I would have to say either Armin Van Buuren-Burned With Desire (Rising Star Remix) or Daft Punk - One More Time
6) Your favourite artists of all the time. Armin Van Buuren, Daft Punk, Akira Yamoaka, Scott Brown, Sean Tyas, Rex Mundi, Brian Eno and many more!
7) How you see music in the future? Music is an ever changing and growing concept. It needs to move forward. At the same time it can't forget who what it came from (at least with the music I work with). Im cautiously optimistic about the future of electronic music and music in general.
8) How you see yourself in music business in the future? I see myself still DJing and producing. At the same time I also hope to be doing even more in the music business. Perhaps running my own label or just doing what I can in the music industry.
9) What can you tell to younger music composers, djs? If you truly love what you do, stick with it! Be open to constructive advice, be realistic and be hard working!
