What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I was a Band keyboardist! Completely nothing else except an Electronic Keyboardist and I Dreamt to Join a band like Akcent or K-Pop that are completely outta the genre I work on right now! I've Qualified Trinity Collage of London Keyboard Course till Grade 5, i.e. 6 Years Including the Initial Level with Distinctions every year and So I am a Keyboardist. But I cant even tell you how I Switched from a Rock/Pop Keyboardist to a Big Electronic and House DJ Music Producer! I just started listening to Martin Garix Animals and My favourite Tracks I can almost ever Listen are...1.Play Hard - David guetta(Original Version) and 2.Reload - Sebastian Ingrosso (Original Mix) that Just Changed my view point of the Music what I Was working on, i.e. Pop and rock! THANKS TO David Guetta and Sebastian Ingrosso And Hardwell for Inspiring the Really Most to get developed with a living career in Music Production.
I started all this stuff since 6.5 or 7 years and this Long huge journey of time brought me here at this Stage where I can Write these Interview questions Confidentially.
How would you describe your style?
My Style : Insanity
Its All about The Music that People love, and I love what the Crowd loves.
My Style is to Start with the Simplest part or the Most Common part of music and Take it to an Another Climax! Like as Taking the Public and Taking them to an Another world. My Music gets the Public Hypnotized to dance and Feel the Rhythm that tears their ear's Sound Capacitors and Blaze a Trail on the Accurate Synth repeating Pattern. I hope you appreciate it too :D
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I love All of 'em Great peeps out there but Hardwell can be a Due Producer Firmly(All others are Literally great, No Partialities and No Offense)! That guy, Really smooth and friendly to work with, with really Professional Top level Skills that inspire me Pretty much at Huge Extents would be the one I WANNA Work with...Surely Someday :))
Can you share one music production tip?
Yeah Sure, and that is TRY TO BE VERSATILE! Look Out for the Music Out of your genre! And MAKE SOMETHING NEW on whatever you work and Master it! Don't Start anything from 0%, learn it to 5% and leave it....At least reach 50% and then call yourself a Master in Production.
I think that's the main thing that really helps a Lot for a Music producer;)
What type of music do you usually work on?
Electro House is the Main Type that I work an love to work on/for. Lot of projects come up asking for a Deep Synth effects to make a party atmosphere glow Red and Black!
Electronic, EDM, Electro House, Trance, techno, House, Deep house are the Most Basic Genres of all the time i had!
What's your strongest skill?
-Right Selection of what to use in what project is one of the best things I can state that I got.
-Thinking What You REALLLLY wanna do while making a new track, If i get a Music Idea, I stay stable and apply it and I Don't Stand up till I get what I want! For example, If i wanna create a Specific Synth in Hamor, thats it, no more strolling around, Just sit and Keep twisting knobs till i get whatEVER i want. I don't care if I'm hungry or it is Day or night, what time, Anything at all, means I'm completely dedicated to my work and I love it!
-My Mixing skills at the time of DJing...The Right Scratch, right time, right drop and right Tempo, and You're gotta go! Doing all those things in just 20 seconds and turning the right Fader up at the Very first beat makes People become a Fan of you. and I think that i got a lil bit of it too :)
-and I never say NO to anything related to music! I'm ready at anytime, anywhere to do something for my passion coz I Care...
-Deciding How long a Song should be played in a Club or festival is really damn important to become a Dj/Producer.
What do you bring to a song?
The INSANITY! the music that is actually Electro but that'll make you think its something other than Electro! I bring a Charm to the music that Wont let you guess its genre easily unless you ask me what Did I just play xD. I bring a Perfection to every sample used in the song and maybe thats the reason why I am here.
What's your typical work process?
I started just listening to some sorta music but, now I Produce Music for living.
I start with Keeping in mind, my other songs that i usually worked on...Remembering to Make Something NEW, NEW, NEW and thats what my first step goes like...
I pick up a Synth voice and start putting some Piano Roll bars on there with the most Common chord progression and then move some Notes from like A to A# or C or F or like some Tones or Semitones up or down to make it sound Professional. but Still i get nothing what i Want! So, then it goes to bassline and Starting to add some FX to the Music that I actually dont know, hah but it goes like really nice when you transfer ONE note from First octave directly to 3rd or 4th one to make it sound Touching! I almost barely use 3 note synth chords...2 note chords dont clash or fight much with the bass and kick...So I start Mastering the Music JUST FROM STARTING! yeah it might be lil bit difficult to remember what I just Mastered but it happens a lot to me, when I Decrease the Bassline Fader and after sometime when I add the X-Axis Saw Synth to the Full Levels, Bass might Sound really Low or nearly turned off BUT when I increase it, i find it fighting with the kicks and Clashing a lot that makes a Full Faded Kick to lose its Effect that actually makes it a Kick. After I compete making a tune, I set it in the arrangement view and my usual Working therapy is the Make a Music a bit longer than it should actually be BUT crowd must not get bored! Its a Trick, Start with just Kicks, Add a Bass with an Automcation clip for its Fader from 0 to 80%(Not full) and then the Support tune that Goes with the Main Music and Add everything that you wanna combine it with the Main Music.
I always find parts when I can make the Song transfer from one tune to Another that Makes the Beat Hearttouching and even more Exciting.
Ofcourse after adding the out of course tune, you'll want to get back to your main music, so My style to set up a Build Up and Cutting edge Zatox Snare by 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/6(if needed) for like 12 or 16 Beats and a Bass Drop to the Main tune ONLY and starting the whole pace with the 3rd beat to setup a Fixation break and giving time for public to accept the change!
I end usually with a Bass Drop and a crash Effect but I also Continue the Kicks with some variations and add a LPF Clip at the End that Makes it Glow as it is an FX Change!
haha, liked it? that's almost everything I work with and deal with! Maybe Many of here do the same, and they'll feel this Great Method making them a Successful Producer. :)
Tell us about your studio setup.
For my Studio, I had used an M-Audio interface but because of more channels required, I Switched to Proton 3000 and that works Flawless! Kept working on an M-Audio Oxygen 61 and Switched to Novation LauchKey 61 Since 2 years and I love 'em both. And.....The most Important Thing EVER, the Monitors/Speakers! i got a Pair of Huge StudioMaster Studio Monitors that actually, I think should be World's top 20 best Studio Monitors one should work on! My Great Releases are done by them. Now even more Important thing that's a DAW and the System I run it on, i.e. an iMac 27 inch 2015 with 16 GB RAM and insane Strength of Processor on what, I run FL Studio as My Main/Primary DAW and Mastering Software. My Fav is Ableton and Logic and I work on them on Special and Complex Projects but FL Studio makes everything so easy and simple even on complex projects that I am an FL user. So, when I get done with a Track and wanna check out how it comes outta the speakers wile mixing, I Swap it directly from my Mac to one of the CDJ-2000 Nexus Players (Black Edition) Connected to the DJM-900 Nexus Professional Mixer and Mix the No-Completed or non-exported track with some other already out Track Syncing and watching what bass suits the best with what frequency. That's kinda like all by my Studio Setup and ts pretty much everything that fulfills my Professional Requirements....
Oh yeah, did I just forget about the Plugins? My Favs are Sylenth1 for the Insane Great Synths and Saw....Next Credit to Nexus! I got a List of like really every single pro plugin starting from beginners to Pro level in my channel list! and I use all at times and need/requirements!
One more thing, If you're a Producer, you'll never want to make your Neighbour's House to vibrate because of your Bass! lol So i got Professional Pyramid Acoustic Panels on everything single uncovered area of my Studio walls and Stuff and they work Great as Heaven.
So that's all I can Say on my Studio Setup!
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Quite a lot of things! But First comes their sense of Reading or Analyzing the crowd, their track selection and the way and the part they make that completely brings the public to a deep trance! The musial Pattern and the Time signatures they put up, their art of taking a tune from MINOR to MAJOR without even letting anybody know there was actually a change and that comes out as something pretty new and exciting! That's all Inspires me to be VERSATILE in Genres....They inspire me to come out of my Mastered genre and look out for increasing and spreading my point of intelligence.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Electro House and Party Music is the Real Common type that I can Assume that someone is gonna ask me out and the Same gets as a gig! Electronic Music has got too high at Certain Extents that theres a New way and new crowd to Appreciate it. Especially the House Music has got the Chance to win people's Hearts when the Bass Drops and Builds up to a New Chord Progression.
