Night Stims – Finding Partners To Push Your Carrer
Maykel Smits, known by his fans by the stage name Night Stims is an EDM artist who fueled his goal of turning a newly started music career into his full-time occupation with the help of SoundCampaign. His recent interview with our team is a lesson in starting strongly, believing in yourself, and smartly relying on trustworthy partners.
Even though he only started DJing and producing professionally one year ago, the response from playlist curators and the new number of listeners he accumulated in such a short time made him the perfect success story relatable to every independent artist who aims to make music their full-time gig.
Many of our artists share Maykel’s ambitions and dedication – and this interview is filled with tips you could apply right away in your career.
Turning A Passion Into a Career
Like most, even for Maykel, it was not just one moment that pointed him toward a music career. He was always listening to a wide array of artists on the radio – which eventually influenced his way around the decks from an early age.
The Dutch DJ best describes his style as Melodic Trance with a touch of old-school vibes. As soon as he unleashed the list of influences, from rock legends like the Rolling Stones and U2 to EDM giants like Armin Van Buuren and Tiesto – it makes sense that his music doesn’t follow a specific lane, making it unique.
Listen to his new tracks to get a feel for how modern Trance can still sound old-school and refined. The smooth vocals in the intro give you the tasty of melodic, while the build-up gradually takes you to the realm of his favorite Trance Artist, Giuseppe Ottaviani.
In just over a year, Night Stims’ name is behind 11 more tracks you can enjoy, with more coming in 2023.
