10 Questions With “Don’t Leave Me” Artist LUVIUM


LUVIUM might be new to the music scene but if there’s one thing we can say for certain it’s that he’s already delivering an incredible standard of production. In particular, his 2023 single “Lie To Me” showed fans around the world that this exciting, up-and-coming Austrian artist has a lot to offer.

As if that wasn’t enough, his new single “Don’t Leave Me” proves that LUVIUM is far more than just a one-trick-pony. This new single is a sensory experience like no other bringing the full force of LUVIUM’s skill as a versatile, melodic composer to bear.

Of course, while it might seem surprising that LUVIUM’s debut releases show such an experienced and skillful approach, it only goes to show just how much work has gone on behind the scenes to make him the artist he is today. With over 14 years of production experience, he’s certainly taken the time to really understand his craft and create music that feels resonant and meaningful to a broad audience.

Although he started out by founding a band, LUVIUM ultimately gravitated towards solo work, allowing him broader creative control and a space to really push boundaries. As a multi-instrumentalist, his music draws on various disciplines and genres to create something truly unique and spectacular.

Q: What are your thoughts on the meaning of success, and how do you define success for yourself?

Success to me undoubtedly entails being able to pursue one’s passions regularly, preferably while sustaining oneself financially. It appears that this dream is on the verge of becoming a reality for me this year, and I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunities my project is currently presenting.

Q: What's the most ridiculous thing you've ever bought?

That has to be my Prophet Hardware Synth. I think it was something like 4000 dollars, yet I haven’t used it in a session to this day. For me, software synths are much more accessible and easier to work with.

Q: What's the most memorable fan encounter you've ever had?

I encountered a girl at a concert, and she candidly shared that my music saved her life. That moment was paradigm-shifting for me, as I realized the profound impact my music could have in healing people and aiding them in navigating their darkest emotions and thoughts. Since then, this has become my driving passion, and I consider it a responsibility to assist as many individuals as possible through my music. It’s what propels me to continue working tirelessly on my project; I can’t envision a more fulfilling endeavor in my life.

Q: Where and when would you go if you could travel back in time to any moment in history?

I’d relish the opportunity to journey back to the beginning days of melodic and future bass. Witnessing and actively participating in the early scene and observing its evolution into what it is today would be immensely captivating.

Q: What is your philosophy on happiness, and how do you strive to maintain a sense of happiness and well-being?

For me, happiness encompasses mental and physical well-being, alongside nurturing strong relationships with family and friends — the most pivotal aspects of my life. Following closely behind is my music and my project. As I mentioned earlier, the gratification derived from helping others through my music is unparalleled. There’s also an innate need for creativity within me, and I’m grateful that I can express it through my music.

Q: How do you see dance music evolving in the future?

I foresee dance music returning somewhat to its roots, with less emphasis on following trends. While I anticipate various genre crossovers I firmly believe that emotionally-driven music still has its place in EDM, and I see renewed attention being directed toward this scene in the future.

Q: What's the weirdest thing you've ever Googled?

This is a personal one: “Am I too old to make it as a melodic bass producer?” This question lingered in my mind for quite some time, given that I’m now 32 years old. However, seeing numerous successful individuals who are much older than me and still commanding main stages at festivals truly bolsters my resolve not to abandon my dreams!
