One of the most refreshing and motivational ways to live your life is fully immersing yourself into your passions, and that is something that Henrik Engstler from Würzburg, Germany has proven time and time again. More widely known by his moniker hnrk, Engstler has discovered his own means of producing music and supporting as many people as he can. Working as a producer for Lil B and existing as a member of Team SESH has paved hnrk‘s way for learning what truly works for others especially himself. In hnrk’s newest EP entitled depurð, it is not difficult to get lost in each distinct beat, achieving the tranquility and ambiance of a warm summer night or the serenity of floating in a body of water.
I asked him a few questions about what keeps him driven and doing what he loves and he responded below:
Hi, what drives you to do what you do?
HNRK: I don’t really know, I love music and I started doing it in my free time because it’s fun and I encourage everybody to try it too : )
What was your though process and focus for this newest EP?
HNRK: Well I made all those beats late night and I feel like they all represent a similar mood of melancholy so I made an EP.
What is in the future for you?
HNRK: In the future is making more music with cool people : )
What are some of your favourite releases this year so far?
In his newest mix created for Steep Sounds, hnrk transports listeners to a better place full of incredibly upbeat and inspiring emotions.
