I live on the East Coast on Australia, in it's 3rd biggest city, Brisbane (behind Sydney and Melbourne). I go to school, play sports, socialise; the normal things a teenager would do.
What is the main genre of music you produce? Electro, but I have dabbled in drum and bass and slower, ambient mixes.
How long have you been producing? 2 years. Ever learning
Do you enjoy producing music? Of course. Why do something you do not love?
What specifically made you want to produce music? Listening to what other people made with machine I had access to. Also, the surprise on peoples faces when they say 'You made this?!'
How/where do you post your music online? I post it here on IDJ. Exclusively. Shouldn't I get bonuses for that?
Which sequencing platform do you use most? Reason 6
What is your favorite instrument/electronic sound? A driving sound that surges along at the moment, but it depends on my mood. I'm starting to get into Chicago house and some Progressive house as well.
What is your favorite type of electronic music? Anything with feeling and emotion behind it. Fuck commercial...
Who is your favorite electronic artist/musician? I have a general Top 10, with The Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Faithless, those sort of artists.
Do you DJ in addition to producing music? Yes.
Do you prefer acoustically or electronically produced sounds? Live instruments have a better sound. They are more flexible and sound more realistic, because they are.
How long does a typical track take you to complete from start to finish? Depends on how many layers I want. 1 week - 3 weeks, on and off.
Which brand of speakers/headphones are you using? Reloop RHP 10 Premium Edition. Decent for $80. Really cool colours as well. I would recommend for studio or bedroom DJ's.
Do you consider yourself good at creating music? No. I think I have a lot of work ahead of me if I want to get where I want to be, but commitments like school and sport are sometimes getting in the way.
Do you consider yourself a successful producer? No. But what does successful mean? It's different to everyone, so that question is subjective...
Do you think you will continue producing music? Until I can no longer hear, or I get a proper job or I lose my love of making music i.e. not for a long time
