Fenn Soroll

TGMS Future Stars: Fenn Soroll

Welcome to Tanzgemeinschaft. Please introduce yourself.

Thanks for having me. My name is Martín Fenoll, and I make music under the name “Fenn Soroll.” In my local scene, I also work with the moniker “MartinFenPer.” It’s very inspiring to do both because, as a local DJ, you have to know a lot of music and really understand how to read people to create the best environment and vibe possible.

How would you describe your sound and style?

My sound has a lot of variety. As long as it feels fresh and fits with my other works, that’s when I know something is worth sharing with the world. Sometimes it’s more of a classic house sound, other times it can be more melodic or experimental, and sometimes it’s afro. As long as it excites me and makes sense to me, I will share it.

What triggers the idea for you to begin a new project?

Honestly, it sounds typical, but passion and curiosity. I’ve tried doing things in the past with thoughts like, “Does this fit with what’s popular, or is this too weird to put out?” I always ended up leaving the project frustrated. Now, I am calmer and more disciplined, enjoying myself with almost no worries other than creating something which is truly worthwhile for me.

Do you have a recent release to showcase? Tell us all about it and something about the process behind it.

Yes, my latest release is a remix I did for Otimo and his track “That Woman!” It’s very Afro House. The cool part is that I have a Fiverr profile where I help artists enhance their songs and visions. Otimo asked me to do two remixes with my style. One is “That Woman!” and the other, “Hold On,” is coming in June.

What other releases have you planned for this year that you can tell us about? When and on which label?

I have some upcoming work in the coming months. One is a collaboration with PREXSE, Vic Rippa, and Josh Botz called “Bulletproof (Hint Of Motion).” It’s a very commercial deep house sound with nice vocals and good vibes. Another one is “Better Off Without You” with Vkr, which is probably one of my favourite songs I’ve ever made. It has a very uplifting classic house sound, and I’m really excited to share it soon.

When searching for a label, what are you looking for? What do you expect from a record label?

I look for a relation between my sound and their releases, and a bit of commitment from the label to try to make the releases go as far as possible. Many labels don’t care about the music they release, or at least that’s my perception.

What is one thing that would make your musical career more successful? Where do you see yourself in five years?

Although I’ve often complained about being in a very small city, I also have to admit that it makes you grow a lot because you have to be very versatile with many jobs, both visual and audio. Being curious about social psychology is also important, as psychology and music go closely together. This is necessary to stay on the scene and continue doing what you love most.

Which characteristics of other artists do you find annoying? Which encourages you to move on?

What I find weird is the constant search for falsifying social media profiles, with comments from people who don’t care about your project and request them through private messages. What motivates me to keep going is making fresh music that people enjoy and support. If I can change a bad day with just one of my tracks, it means a lot to me.

Who are your musical or audio heroes and why?

I choose different things from each one, but one of the ones I see myself most reflected in, in terms of career advice or general business advice, is Diplo. Musically, I like Eric Prydz, Axwell, deadmau5, Ten Walls, Bob Sinclar, and Eden Prince, among others.

When it comes to your field, producing, are there any particular ideas or pioneers that you frequently go back to or who really influence your thinking about the work you do?

Not really. I have production techniques that I have developed on my own. I’ve never taken a music production course. But the only rule I follow is that if the idea excites me, I continue developing it. If it doesn’t excite me, I try, to at least finish it, and then I decide what to do with it.

Thank you
