We got a chance to sit down with Virtual Riot to get some insights into his life and career. Here are a few snippets, then scroll down to listen to the full interview.

What is the meaning behind Virtual Riot?

"I wish I knew that. I came up with it when I was 13 or 14 and my english wasn't the best because in Germany, we started english class in 5th grade, so it was around that time when I first learned english, so I thought it just sounded really cool... "

What or who was your main inspiration when you were developing the project?

"Obviously Skrillex, mostly for the electronic sound. When I first started producing, I didn't know much electronic music to be honest because all of the influences I had from my family were metal..."
