We caught up with producer Luka ahead of his appearance on the Tradiio x 405 stage at Field Day 2015. His beautifully crafted sounds will whisk you away to somewhere beyond. It's nothing but cool, calm and collected vibes with this guy.

Check out our Q&A below and watch his exclusive Tradiio session.

How did you get started?

I started learning the piano as a kid. Then picked up the guitar and played in bands for ages before I decided to do my own thing about 2 years ago.You always have to compromise when playing with others, which is cool too. For now I’m enjoying the freedom of not having to adjust to others and that’s why I started this solo project.

Where do you find inspiration?

I have all kinds of sources for inspiration. One would be collecting images and photos and sharing them on my Tumblr. Another one would be traveling. Seeing places you’ve never been before creates a certain feeling I find very inspiring. Same with meeting new people. Especially those people who make you see things from a different point of view.

What risk would you take if you knew you could not fail?

I'd probably spend all my money on guitars, synths and drum machines if I knew I couldn’t fail. I love trying out new equipment or even new instruments, especially if I don’t know how to use them. It’s like a blank piece of paper and you can draw whatever you want. There's no habits or routines that get in your way.

What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?

I had a really happy childhood with great family and friends around me. My mum was born and raised in Croatia so we used to go there for holidays to visit my Grandparents. I used to sit at the see with my Grandpa and he would sing some Italian opera for me. I didn’t understand a word, neither did I like Opera, but it was beautiful.

When was the last time you tried something new?

I’m in Barcelona right now and we had some crazy seafood last night I’ve never tried before. It was a traditional Catalan restaurant. I love food, so I try new stuff all the time.

Whose life do you believe you’ve had the biggest impact on?

Probably my parents. They were really supportive about the whole music thing, although they would prefer me to have a ‘proper’ job. Even when I was 15 and playing in a death metal band, they we’re cool with it.

What are you currently working on?

I’m always working on new music no matter where I am. I just finished a new remix today. I do a lot of recording of different instruments at home so I can sample them on the road, without having to have all the gear with me. I’m also working on visuals for my live show with a really talented guy from London I found on twitter. I feel like this will take the live show to the next level.

What's the most challenging thing you've ever created?

Probably my Bachelor thesis I wrote last month. Such a pain in the ass. I really didn’t like university and with all the music stuff going on it was hard to sit down and spend so much time on it. You wouldn't believe how relieved I am that it’s done...

What is something you believe that almost nobody agrees with you on?

That’s a tough one. I have a sweet spot for that new Taylor Swift song but I guess millions of teenage girls feel the same. Most people reading this article will disagree with me though.

What's the next big step you feel you need to take in your career?

I just finished an EP I can’t wait to announce & release. I’ve got so much unreleased material and I feel like it’s time to get it out there. I’m also really getting into producing for other artists - I listen to a lot of different genres and I come from a totally different musical background so it’s nice to get out of my comfort zone. It’s also really challenging, since I haven’t been working with other musicians for quite some time. But most importantly I really enjoy it.
