A peek into the mind of MISSIN

With his entrance on the bass-filled battlefield in December last year, MISSIN, one of Serbia's smoothest, has quickly become a name not to be ignored. With releases on MethLab, Delta9 and DIVIDID all within a span of a couple of months, it would be unwise if we didn't take the time to catch up.

You've certainly captured some serious attention in recent months, I'm excited for us to have this conversation. So how long have you been in the game?

Yes! I'm excited as well; glad to be here! Thanks for catching up. I've been making moves for some time already. I've had multiple aliases and had been working on some experimental stuff before. Mainly, I was just exploring stuff to find see what I like the most. Never thought of doing drum and bass but It really did grow on me. I've been in the game for about 2 years. The phase before was all about discovery.

I'm intrigued to know more about the area that you live in. Would you say the demand for Drum & Bass is big in Serbia? Do you play many shows out there?

The Drum and Bass scene in Serbia isn't that big, however there are some good organisations who make the drum sound locally available, which is great! Synchronicity and Drop Sensei to name a couple of examples.. I don't play that much in Serbia. I wish it could be more, but people would rather attend a folk event then something different and new.

How do you find time to make so much music? I see new tracks from yourself being posted every other week, and frankly, I'm amazed.

Well, I don't go to university. So I think it is because of that, haha! It's true that I used to do that before. I think that is too much now though, I don't like putting out a new track every week. My focus has shifted to quality over quantity. I want to just have a few releases each year that are really well made. So in the future it will be less and less, sorry!

Any upcoming releases you can talk about?

Yes! I'm working on a EP for Methlab that is going to be a bit heavier then my usual stuff and more mixdown precise. Also there is something for Invisible, and I have some plans and talks for the future that I want to keep a secret! All I can say is: stay tuned!

Up until this moment, what has been your favourite track, and why?

That's a hard question, because I really don't pick favourites. I tend to listen to a lot of different stuff. There is a new favourite track every single day. It really depends on how I feel and what I want to listen at that particular moment. I really love to explore and get out of my comfort zone.

What is the next milestone for yourself; is there any thing in particular that you're working towards?

My next milestone is to get my tracks clean as possible. I want to learn more and more of the technicalities and improve my creative workflow. I think that over time it will be much easier for me to transfer my ideas onto the DAW!
