Hi TYPHON! How are you doing?
Hey! I’m doing great. It’s been a pretty rocky year with the pandemic still happening but praying things will get better. Nothing but positive thoughts.
Take us back to the beginning, how did you find your passion into producing electronic music?
I remember listening to Skrillex and Flux Pavillion when I was in my teens and instantly became a huge fan of electronic music; I was just a casual listener at the time. Fast forward years later I went to my first festival, Something Wicked 2016. When I approached NGHTMRE’s stage and felt the bass hitting my body for the first time I instantly told myself, “That could be me up there, I want to learn how to DJ and produce.” I went home that night and started looking up YouTube tutorials on how to produce.
You released an EP called “The Voyage” through Buygore. Could you share the creative process behind about this EP?
The EP was based on an old folktale about a fictional sailor who ventured into the seas. During his voyages he explored magical places, met monsters, and encountered supernatural phenomena. My goal with the EP was to create a free-flowing, multi genre project from start to finish. I wanted the listeners to feel like they’re going on a journey by pressing ‘play’ and letting the tracks seamlessly guide them.
What is your favorite song from the EP?
This is a tough question (haha). Each track has its own unique style and meaning to the EP. If I had to choose, I would have to say “Restless“. I had an absolute blast making the tune from start to finish and everything just flowed together.
How have you been staying productive during the quarantine period?
Getting out of my comfort zone has helped me stay productive during this quarantine. I started to produce other genres like trap, house and dnb. Setting myself a goal each month has helped me finish a lot of music as well.
This quarantine period has been hard for the music industry so now it’s time to support, any interesting new producers you would recommend to follow?
The amount of talent I have come across during the quarantine period has been insane. Keep an eye out on these guys: Hayve, Noughts, Evilnoiz, Levi Walsh, PR1ME, Guillotine, Flanders, Perry Wayne, Viperactive, VLCN, Blosso, ESAI, Mylky and Cheery-O.
Would you like to share something with the followers of Let the Bass Get You?
I appreciate all the support I have been receiving on all my music. I wouldn’t be able to do this without you guys. I hope you guys are ready for some more music because I have a lot on the way ranging from dubstep to trap, house and dnb.
I also wanted to mention that I know we’ve all been going through some crazy times, so don’t hesitate to directly message me on any social media platform if you need help with music or just want to talk!
Shoutout LTBGY for the interview and premiering my track, Restless!
