Born in Villahermosa Mexico, Rossemberg Maza has paved his own way into the EDM scene – but his success hasn’t come easy. After a successful incursion in RnB music production, he decided to take on the genre of EDM. At only 20 years old, Rossemberg has had 2 hit songs in Mexico, and this was before he hit the age of 18. He has travelled the whole world looking for inspiration and ideas, including having recorded in the mythical “Mouri Studios” in Tokyo, as well as a few of the UK’s most famous recording studios. He has worked with Latin Grammy winner, Gael Hedding, as well as Grammy nominee Blake Eiseman. His 2 hit songs back in Mexico were not released officially, and without promotion, the demand from fans was very high. This encouraged plays on the radio and many views on Youtube – the fans we’re driving Maza’s career. Rossemberg is proficient in many instruments including the drums, guitar and is self taught on the piano. He is a composer, arranger and producer as well. He is always on the look out for innovation and creativity, and we got the chance to dig deep into this extravagant musician’s mind right here on Entertwine. Enjoy!
Could you tell us a bit about your musical background? What led you to pursue a career in music in the first place?
Definitely music was a huge part of me growing up, my dad was always listening to the beatles and my mum to something more latin. music was always there
Where are you from? What is the music scene of your hometown like?
I was born in Villahermosa Tabasco Mexico, but i have moved a lot, specially within europe. Back home it was mostly salsa and latin sounds but moving a lot, i of course got influenced by rock and roll and Hip hop and more recently EDM.
What experiences and events have inspired the music that you’ve written and released?
Everything in my life, from bouncing from place to place, to things i see, music i hear but most than any of those emotions.
Could you tell us about a few of the most exciting and interesting live performances you’ve been a part of?
Definitely the impromptu ones and the ones where im with close friends and out of nowhere a guitar comes out and there we go, thats all you really need.
Who are you collaborating with musically at the moment?
Now mostly producers, we were trying to find my own sound and we decided to focus on me. However, Brad Grobler is an amazing producer and we got him to feature in one of the songs. Really cool!
Do you create your own artwork and visuals? If not, who do you work with?
We try to have different visuals with every single project we have on hands, and we end up using different visual workers, but we tend to avoid agencies and go to the root because i believe there is where we are going to find the maximum expression of art
Are there any activities or hobbies that you enjoy outside of music?
Sure, Music, Reading… I love history and Economics and of course im studying in the UK, so i have plenty of things to do to keep me busy.
Despite not being that into social media i would say i enjoy instagram, its so troubleless. You upload a picture and don’t have to say anything if you don’t want to. but people can see what you are up to at that moment.
Do you have any plans to film and digitally release a music video for any of your songs?
Right now we are in the process of choosing the singles so we can work in the videos for those singles. The 2 videos i have released before have been a success so we are trying to keep it in the same direction but it is a lot of hard work.
What can you tell us about your new single ‘Through It All’?
Well the single is amazing, so amazing that it gave name to the album. Its a dance anthem to keep pushing forward despite bad things happening. Brad Grobler did an amazing job. Im sure people will love it
What does 2015 hold in store for Rossemberg Maza? Do you have plans to release a full-length project anytime soon?
Through It All is releasing in the next few months and after that we will have promotion and going around places, concerts. so we pretty much got a busy busy year but this is what we love to do. lets see how everything goes but it should be ok
