Growing up in the digital era, Alan found an early interest in computers that later turned into a fascination for programming and graphic design. In 2012 he started making music on his laptop with the help and feedback from his online friends. His music gained great popularity among gamers who used Alan’s tracks in their own YouTube videos (UGC). The songs spread all over the world and later caught the attention of the record labels.

“Music kind of just happened spontaneously a few years back. I found a track on Youtube I liked a lot – it inspired me and it made me start exploring producing myself. Everything started online with people, or rather nicknames, from around the world helping each other out. Now music is a big part of my life and what I want to pursue”.  – Alan Walker
