Here is the text translation:

Today in the Studio Damian Politansky, the representative of Sonic Division and musician, Hello!

Damian , you have engaged in electro music, but now for some reason I switched to TRANS why?
Well actually it was not electro, electro, freestyle, I started at the age of 15 and these were my first steps in music.

Time affected?
Likely to time, and maybe style, you want to make changes, what would it become a chore. We have changed the style of the progressive-trance, and about three years are engaged in this direction.

And in your opinion, how did this direction has been developed in Poland, it seems to me that this is not bad.
If it is Poland, all now felt much better, I don’t know exactly how developed it now, but it seems to me much better than several years ago. Now this music is more developed in the world and it is still quite popular.

How did that together with Maciej you have created a project Sonic Division, but you are at a great distance from each other, heavily probably have to work?
To begin with, that it’s not very difficult, now that we have the Internet and phones, we can easily share ideas we have come up with, and it all started when we first started electro-freestyle, we met online and then we came up with the idea of a joint project. One song, second, third, and went on.

Many popular DJs play your music all over the world. Armin Van Buuren or Above & Beyond , a great success, what do you think?
You can say so. Every aspiring to write his music was always first to set goals for yourself, by any means hit the playlist famous DJs of the world.

Can we all earn good money?
It depends on what you understand under »normal» money.

I mean, what would the money was quite enough for life.
Again, hard to say, if you have enough упертости and you got down to business seriously, you should be able to capitalize on this, and if you do that for myself only, it is hardly possible to earn something.

How are you feeling about that?
More it for myself, and I am working in other напрвлениях and therefore, progressive-trance for me as a rest from the basic work.

With whom of the world or Polish celebrities do you work?
First of all I work with Holenderska Armada, D-Blue records and other companies, to which we give a few songs, remixes etc, but still the main publisher is Holenderska Armada.

Why first of all, you work with Western publishers, and not with the Polish?
The matter is that in Poland there is no good publishing house, with which one can work seriously. Just here more developed other directions.

Such as pop?
Pop, dance, all the music that we hear on the radio.

Think you just need to grow to a certain type of music?
I would not like to assess in such categories, because not I define any trends in tastes. Simply between the us and the West is still a huge gap.

Your future plans?
To finish my studies, I am studying in Wroclaw on Politechnika, and about music, I like to write music and beyond.
And their future where you see? In Elenia Gore or outside it?Depends on many factors, not sure yet.

A reminder, today we had in the Studio representative Sonic Division and composer Damian Politanski. All the while!
