What first drew you into music production and trap production in particular?
I first got drawn into music production in high school when a mate of mine gave me FL Studio on my school MacBook. Trap, in particular, started when I graduated and wanted to take music more seriously. This was around the time I was starting to wrap my head around trap music.
Coming from Sydney Australia do you have any favorite clubbing spots?
World Bar is definitely my favourite clubbing spot especially on Wednesdays when they host weekly event ‘The Wall’. This lot bring (in my opinion) some of the best acts to Sydney and host a platform for up-and-coming producers/DJ’s to showcase.
Going over your Soundcloud profile we can tell you love making remixes, How do you know if a track is a good candidate for a remix?
It’s a very unstructured process. Generally, I’ll listen to a song and if I feel like I can put a creative spin on it I’ll give it a go. Only a very select few of remixes I make actually make it up on Soundcloud.
Trap is known to be one of the most complex genres to produce, how did you manage to develop such great mixing skills in such a short time? Also, what is your studio setup like?
My mixing and mastering skills came from an inundation of YouTube tutorials, reverse engineering and learning from people I have collaborated or worked with. These have all coincided to help me develop a form of mixing and mastering that works for me. My current studio setup is a 13-inch MacBook Air and a pair of Apple earbuds.
Your latest track “Strange” is a great track and the drop is very minimalistic and powerful. Could you tell us more about your sound design processes? Also what synths are you using to create your drops?
Sound design is a very meticulous process for me, in this song particularly I used Serum to create that synth which was super inspired by another producer called Milano. However for most of my sound design is the result of multiple instances of resampling based off of VST synthesis or even sample-based work. Synths that I use to create my drops are usually Synplant, Serum and Sylenth.
2017 has just passed us, how would you summarize 2017? Did it turn out the way you expected it to?
2017 was great! It turned out way better than I could have imagined. I played so many great shows, made so much music and made a lot of great friends.
2018 has just began, what are your goals for the new year. Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
Every year I just want to better myself at making music. I’ve been slowly toiling away at designing and curating a “live set” of sorts so I’ll hopefully be able to incorporate that soon and also an EP in the works, which should come out this year. Im spending around a month in the US through March-April doing some very exciting things that i will be able to bring to life soon.
