Ucros Interview with New York Style Guide
Sebastian Rodriguez, also known as Ucros, is a Miami-based DJ and producer. We had the pleasure of interviewing Ucros ahead of Miami Music Week:
1. How did you get into music and how long have you been producing?
My father’s music influenced me from a very young age. Growing up we would listen to classic rock, new wave, disco, and synth-pop in the car, at home, really anywhere and everywhere. Since I started producing music about 5 years back, I’ve incorporated sounds from that era into my style.
2. Who are your main musical influences?
The artists who have inspired my sound are definitely Eric Prydz, Depeche Mode, Fehrplay, and Michael Jackson, funny enough.
3. Do you have any notable successes and setbacks in your music career that you would like to share?
Though there’s so much left to accomplish I’m proud to have already reached the number 2 spot on Beatport’s progressive house charts. I’ve opened up for legends such as Roger Sanchez, Fehrplay, Cocodrills, and many other household names. I’ve even performed around the country at some top-tier electronic clubs and many of my tracks have been released on some pretty prominent labels! I’d say the only real setback has been getting the ball rolling on releasing on some even bigger labels. But I’m confident I won’t be waiting much longer!
4. What would be your dream label to release on?
Without a doubt, my dream label to release on would be Pryda Recordings. I think we’re a perfect match.
5. What do you hope to accomplish musically in 2022?
What I am certain I’ll accomplish in 2022 is taking an even bigger leap. I’m targeting releases on bigger labels and performing at massive events.
6. Do you have any upcoming projects or collaborations?
I have a couple of remixes that I’m working on for some labels and a collab EP with a good friend of mine coming out soon. So, stay tuned!
7. What is your ultimate career goal?
My ultimate career goal is to become a household name in the electronic scene. To be in the same conversion with some of the most talented producers and performers. Hope to be well on my way!
