D`LION makes music that sounds like “Someone threw a kettle down a staircase” at least according to his father. D`LION has gained support from artist like Herobust, KAI WACHI, Trampa b2b midnight t, MARAUDA and more. Read the interview below!
HI D`LION! HOW ARE YOU DOING?
G’Day sunshine I’m swell cheers mate!
TAKE US BACK TO THE BEGINNING, HOW DID YOU FIND YOUR PASSION FOR PRODUCING ELECTRONIC MUSIC?
Growing up in my early teens I’d listen to a lot of house music and only a small amount of dubstep. I started to practice producing house music as a after school hobby and also wanted to learn how to DJ so I could play at party’s when I had turned 18. One day I was on YouTube looking for new house music for a mix I wanted to practice with and I came across Code: Pandorum’s remix of “Borgore – Unicorn Zombie Apocalypse” on the recommended section and it just blew me away. I fell in love with that track instantly so I went through his other tracks and thats when I realised I wanted to make loud heavy Satan music.
ABOUT YOUR STUDIO METHODS. DO YOU HAVE REGULAR HABIT FOR CREATING A NEW SONG AND GETTING INSPIRED?
Most of the time I just sit on my computer slamming down a few beers on a weekend and just mess around making silly noises. The more beers I sink the better the track starts to sound, then on weeknights after work I’ll open up the project from the following weekend and start working around the structure of the song and clean it up whilst I’m sober. I normally suffer from writers block a lot and when I can’t write anything that catches my ear I would just take a break and play video games until my head stops hurting and I can write again. Nothing really special to be honest.
THOSE WHO KNOW YOUR STYLE KNOWS THAT YOU ALWAYS DELIVER, BUT FOR THOSE WHO AREN`T FAMILIAR WITH YOUR MUSIC, COULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL SOUND?
Man I wouldn’t even know how to describe it properly but if I were to describe my own sound personally, it would be a bunch of loud and distorted noises thrown together over a pile of hot steaming garbage. My dad says my music sounds like someone threw a kettle down a staircase which makes makes total sense because it’s just loud bangs and crashes.
YOUR NEWEST SONG “BASIC TUNE” HAS BEEN OUT FEW WEEKS, COULD YOU SHARE THE CREATIVE PROCESS BEHIND ABOUT THIS SONG?
I wanted to create a drop that had a basic riddim flow mashed with some tearout sounds to throw the listeners off guard. The intro was inspired by late 90’s to early 00’s house rave scene because I loved house music growing up and I honestly just wanted to make something different. The second drop was actually a rushed job due to a very tight deadline for the release of Without God 7 album on Interval Audio. Originally this track was just made for a laugh after playing this at a gig in February 2020 and seeing the crowds response made me want to finish the track and get it published.
WHO DO YOU HOPE TO WORK WITH IN THE FUTURE, IF YOU COULD NAME TOP3 ARTISTS TO WORK WITH AND WHY?
My dream collab is hands down Code: Pandorum. He’s the biggest inspiration to me and anything he puts out his just fire.
Megalodon was one of the first dubstep artists I had listen to and loved his music from the beginning so he would be another artist I’d love to work with.
And I guess the third artist would have to be the homie MARAUDA because he makes big tracks with big guns and big guns are freaking sick!
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE SOMETHING WITH THE FOLLOWERS OF LET THE BASS GET YOU?
I just want to say cheers to the people who support me and giving me a reason to live, Y’all really are beautiful. Party hard and rock on! Much love xoxo!
