From winning the discovery project to getting officially booked to play EDC, Vena Cava definitely has worked hard to where he is now. If you haven't had the chance to check out his music you should soon! Very unique and distinct I would say, and just really stands out from everything else out right now.
Now he's releasing music on Kaskade's Arkade Records, and this is just the beginning. I got the chance to ask Noah a few questions after his debut set in Las Vegas this weekend. What you'll read and come to learn is that your dreams can be realities. It's only a matter of how bad you want it.
Obviously a lot has happened for you over the past year. Can you give me some insight on really what it's been like for you emerging?
I suppose it's very exciting! Though I am very thankful for where I am at this point in time, I don't think it has fully set in yet. To be totally honest, I don't think I will be satisfied with my project for a long time. Achievements and goals have definitely been met on my end, but I feel that while each milestone has been hit, another one emerges.
Playing EDC was definitely a goal that seemed to be unreal when I first started making electronic music back in 2011, but now that I have achieved that goal, it is time to move forward to the next milestone.
Do you think that it is as hard as people make it to be to start releasing on labels and playing festivals?
I don't think it is "hard" to release on labels or to play festivals. I really just think it comes down to keeping your head in the right place, making a lot of really good music and becoming genuine friends with people who are able to make it happen. I'd say it takes more time than anything. Proper progress takes time.
How would you describe yourself as an artist and your individual sound?
My music is very melodic, and in my opinion captures a lot of emotion. When I write, I try to envision an ethereal world in which my music exists. I think pulling directly from imagination as opposed to "irl experiences" helps a lot too, so ideas won't be as concrete, and creativity will resonate much more.
What's been one the hardest struggles thus far you have overcome to be where you are?
Going along with my response to the question about good advice from successful individuals, I think the biggest struggle for me probably had to be finding continuous inspiration to write.. Writers block is probably my biggest enemy at this point in time. Haha.
