Interview: Who The Fuck Is Dechard?!

HypeFeeder: Would you care to introduce yourself for our audience? What is your name and what do you do?

Dechard: Hey there! I’m a music producer from Italy that goes by the name of Dechard.

HypeFeeder: What are you up to at the moment, do you have any plans for 2015? Are you working on any specific projects?

Dechard: 2015 is gonna be a very intense year, there’s many projects going on but the one I really would like to tell you first is my upcoming electronic band called Quixotic. We’re making a mood, way more than a genre, sounding vintage also modern yet and our vibe is tropical and cinematic.

HypeFeeder: As a music producer do you create your own material or just work on other peoples?

Dechard: I started producing my own house music tunes and this led me to get to start many collaborations with musicians that offer different styles. One of them is Sabrina Petrini, a talented pop singer from Sweden. She’s pretty popular in her country and doing great things in America too.

“Music is a language, so before creating music make sure you have something to say.”


HypeFeeder: Can you talk about your production process? How do you get creative in the studio?

Dechard: You know I produce many different styles and since I’m based between Italy and California process is different from time to time, situations are always located in different places.

HypeFeeder: What is your favourite part about being a music producer?

Dechard: Music is a spiritual thing. I mostly love the fact to convey my emotions through music, a very powerful language.

HypeFeeder: Why did you choose Dechard as a stage name, does it have any meaning behind it?

Dechard: Well, my stage name “Dechard” comes from my little cute cousin in Belgium, because at the time she couldn’t pronounce my real name, Richard :)

HypeFeeder: What and who are some of your major influences? Please give a few details about what you enjoy about creating music and what inspires you to make it.

Dechard: Music is a language, so before creating music make sure you have something to say. Art got a powerful message, unfiltered beautiful, historical, in a way that goes beyond science.

HypeFeeder: Do you perform live, or have any future plans to work in a live performance side to your work?

Dechard: Yes, I’m actually planning my first tour across America and Mexico. I’ll DJ around many venues and private events also, looking forward to it!

HypeFeeder: Is there any band or artist you would love to work with? If so, who are they and why?

Dechard: Oh man, there’s so many I would love to collaborate with. As a DJ I had the chance to remix some artists like Edx, Bob Sinclar, Alex Vargas and this make me feel so blessed.

HypeFeeder: What are you hopes for the future? Where do you see yourself as an artist this time next year or the year after?

Dechard: I’ll surely get closer to my goals!


HypeFeeder: If I was to turn up at a show, what should I expect from you in terms of music and showmanship? Is there any crazy stuff you do to pull the crowd?

Dechard: I think the best thing is just to be yourself, always.. like I’m playing with the whole crowd at the show, not just being there for them

HypeFeeder: Do you receive much fan mail, and if so what’s the craziest, creepiest or coolest thing you’ve ever gotten from a fan?

Dechard: I love being in contact with my followers! Last Christmas I received a really cool portrait from an American fan, it was awesome

HypeFeeder: Name one thing you love, one thing you hate and one thing you think everyone should try at least once before they die?

Dechard: Confidence, lack of intelligence, enjoy every minute of your life with no regrets.

HypeFeeder: If you could have one wish, what would it be and why?

Dechard: I wish my family could join me more often when I’m abroad, they’re very important to me.
