HI STONED LEVEL! HOW ARE YOU DOING?
I’m doing great, working a lot of new stuff and trying to make the best I can do to improve and stack up some new tracks.
TAKE US BACK TO THE BEGINNING, HOW DID YOU FOUND YOUR PASSION INTO PRODUCING ELECTRONIC MUSIC?
I’ve always been a huge music fan, I grew up listening to a ton of different music genre from heavy metal to jazz and I always had a lot of fun to just vibe to any type of music. When I was in High School one of my good friend and I were watching a lot of EDM festival recaps and I really discovered how intense the vibe was in those kind of shows but I felt like it was missing a little bit of heavyness to it, then I discovered Trollphace, Krimer, Funtcase and landed on the NSD soundcloud page and instantly I knew this kind of music was meant for me so I decided to start producing dubstep. A year after, I went to my first Valhalla Sound Circus, saw some of my favourite artists and had such an amazing time that I really knew I had to start pushing my music and try to make myself a place in this industry.
ABOUT YOUR STUDIO METHODS, DO YOU HAVE REGULAR HABIT FOR CREATING A NEW SONG AND GETTING INSPIRED?
I don’t really have any particular producing habits, I usually start with a little sound design session, trying to make some dope sounds and when I have something that I like, I just try to make something cool out of it. Then I try to make an intro that fits the vibe correctly and the rest just comes by itself.
YOU RELEASED AN EP CALLED “PAIN” THROUGH “BASSWEIGHT RECORDS” LABEL. COULD YOU SHARE THE CREATIVE PROCESS BEHIND THE EP?
For my EP, I just wanted to make some of the heaviest tracks I’ve ever done, had no ideas how it was going to be honestly. I first did my track “Diablo” and I felt like the energy and the darkness behind that track was something very original, something I never did and barely heard anywhere else and I really wanted to push my style this way. I’ve always been into the cinematic music so I tried to make that the main element of my tracks and try to basically tell a different story for each tracks and it ended up being some of the tracks I’m the most proud of.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SONG FROM THE EP?
My favourite track of the EP has to be Pain no doubt about it. The vibe, the energy is just something completely crazy and I feel like it represents my style really well.
WHO DO YOU HOPE TO WORK WITH IN THE FUTURE, IF YOU COULD NAME TOP3 ARTISTS TO WORK WITH AND WHY?
That’s a tough one, there’s so many good and inspiring artists in the game but even if I know I’m far away from that being some possible collabs, my very best top 3 artists I would love to work with in the future would be Svdden Death, Kompany and PhaseOne simply because they’re some of my favourite producers right now. They’re sound design, the heavyness of their tracks is really something out of this world in my opinion and I feel like the blend of their styles and mine would be something really crazy, I’m really looking up to those guys and I wish someday I’ll be able to make one of those happen.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE SOMETHING WITH THE FOLLOWERS OF LET THE BASS GET YOU?
Right off the bat I’d like to thank everyone who know me and support me from Let The Bass Get You and for those of you who didn’t know my I hope this interview helped you to discover my music and know a little bit better who I am. I’m currently working in my best music so far, working with one of my favourite artist of all time (wich is not included in my top 3 artist since somehow I’ve been able to make it happen) and I’ll be ready more than ever for what’s coming up next. If you have a passion, a dream or anything that makes you feel good about yourself, stick to it, keep pushing and never let it go, some crazy and unexpected things can happen from it and that’s hands down the best thing ever.
With that being said, stay safe out there, have a good one !!
One love, Stoned Level
