What first drew you into music and Dubstep in particular?
Growing up, I listened to all kinds of music like orchestral music, ambient music, classic rock, techno, and trance. During middle school, I found out about drum and bass, and then dubstep came into the mix. I never heard anything like it, and I was very intrigued by all the different sounds. I wanted to make music like that, so in my last year of middle school, I started to teach myself how to use Ableton.
Your track “Elixir” with clozvre is mixed/mastered to perfection and your ideas are out of this world! How did you achieve such a great signature sound in such a short time? What is your creative process like?
Thank you! (Shout out to clozvre- he’s very talented.) Getting the hang of music production wasn’t a short process at all. It takes a lot of patience. I like warping, distorting, and chopping sounds up- it’s fun! I usually find a particular sound that I like, play with it, and then build a track off of it.
“Knives” is a very unique producer name, Does it have any special meaning? How did you choose it?
IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH LITERAL KNIVES I SWEAR. I get, “If we collab, can I be spoons? Forks?” a lot. That gets old really quick haha. It started out as a nickname, and it just kind of caught on.
You have recently released a remix of “Grey Magic” The track is a modern Hip-hop/Dubstep fusion and we wonder if you plan to release more hip-hop sounding tracks in the future
Ruby and Scrim are so cool, and I love their style of music. I definitely plan on doing more tracks like that for sure!
What are your musical goals for the future?
There’s so much that I want to do, but as of right now, I want to DJ more. It’s such a great feeling when people enjoy your music. There’s no other feeling in the world like it.
What are your goals for 2019, any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
I’m working on a short EP, as well as individual projects and collaborations with some of my friends!
