I’m Carl Edouard (Real name : Charles Balembois) I’m French DJ and music producer.
I worked with international artists and recorded many songs. I also performed in several big clubs in Europe (France, Denmark, Belgium.. etc.) and collaborated with many brands. Most recently I worked with “Mercedes-Benz” and I was a finalist in the 2012 BPM Contest.

Do you have any tips for our readers that are trying to break in the industry?
I see everyday more and more young people who wants to break in the industry. It’s a good thing but too many are naive about this business. “This business is a connection business, music represent only a little part of success.” The best tips that I could give to you is to move and meet many people who work in this business. Try to speak with labels, artists, managers.
Sometimes it takes a long time to become aware of the reality. Don’t forget you can’t create success alone. I heard so much bad songs on the radio, how can they play that? They are not good artists? But they are good in management.
