Some weeks ago we announced the winners of the Tommyboy Remix Contest organized by Findremix and Pornostar Records. This is the interview I made to the winner, Zack Marullo, who won a release on PornoStar and stuff by Propellerhead, Camel Audio and FabFilter:
Who is Zack Marullo?
This is one of my projects. I found myself in this name. I’m just a Hungarian DJ and producer from Europe.
When have you started with music production?
I’m Interested in producing. I had some projects in the early 90’s too with FT2, but my professional work started about 6 years ago.
What is your studio setup?
Mostly I use Ableton, but sometimes I work with others softwers, for example Cubase, FruityLoops and Logic. I have a lot of vst from Native Instruments, Steinberg and TC, but I know the brands of Propeller Head yet. I have quite more samples too.
How do you get to know Findremix?
One of my friends advised it to me.
Do you think it is useful?
Yes, of course. I think , it’s a really cool thing. I like much more the prizes!
Have you entered other remix contests?
No, never, but I won a Hungarian DJ Championship 3 years ago.
What is your working method when starting a remix?
I wanted to make a track that sounds like this. I really liked these contest’s samples. I just wanted to make a seasonable clubsound.
Among other things, you have won a release on a top level house label. Is this your first release?
No, my first release was out in 2006, on Morrison’s Rec. Since than I have some releases on the other labels.
Good luck in your music career, and keep producing good tracks!
Many thanks too and all the best for You!
