Newcaise – New Artist Q&A

How did you first get involved in the Underground music scene?

Querijn: I think for me personally it was Monstercat. I was a dubstep fanboy I must say. After checking out all of the channel I found some Hardstyle tunes. Went checking out more & so my love for it became more & more. Somewhere between 2016 & 2017 I decided to search songs but couldn’t find any. So I went over to Liquid DnB since it was always my favorite second genre. So after finding tunes like Amaryllis – Hiver I started to love this genre even more then Hard style.

Jochem: I was browsing the internet one day. Found some Netsky tunes but wasn’t really familiar with the term “Drum & Bass.” After Querijn mentioned the genre we went checking it out together. He suggested some tunes & artists to follow and listen to.

What made you get into the producing side of things?

In 2014 I started producing Hardstyle with a few mates. Collaboration went shitty and soon he started producing on his own. Jochem came in touch with producing because of me about 3 years ago. He started with producing House/Dance. In the beginning of 2017 we decided to start a collaboration. But there was a small problem. Which genre were we’re going to produce. I didn’t want to produce Dance/House & Jochem didn’t want to produce Hardstyle. I came to the conclusion that Drum & Bass might be a suitable genre. So we decided that Drum & Bass was the genre we were going to produce.

What influences you when making music?

Nothing really. It really depends when we’re making music and if you feel creative or not. Sometimes a tune can influence but most of the time we don’t have any influences.

Can you tell us about your production process?

We mostly just start with chords. Doesn’t matter if it is for pads or piano. Then we’ll make the first drop then the intro and then work off the track till the outro. It also depends on the tune. Sometimes we will make the drums first and then come up with some chords or melody.

What makes drum & bass different from other genres?

Querijn: The atmospheric sounds together with some rolling drums and it’s tempo. Other genres don’t seem to create the same feeling I have when I listen to Liquid DnB. On the otherhand. Drum & Bass has a full spectrum of styles. Even within Liquid only. From jazzy vibes to chilled down vibes. Then you have Neurofunk ,Jump up and Jungle of course. These styles are lovely & sick in their own way.

Jochem: Just as Querijn mentioned Drum & Bass has a wide spectrum of variety & styles. Even though we mostly like Liquid we can also enjoy listening to some Neuro. The vibe some tunes have is incredible and I hope we can achieve the same feeling with some people with our music. I also get some sort of motivation boost when listening to Drum & Bass tunes. Don’t know why though haha.

Who are your favourite Producers/Dj’s?

Querijn: Producers – S.P.Y, Monrroe, Pola & Bryson, Malaky, Changing Faces, Liz-E & Seba. Dj;s – Changing Faces, Silence Groove, Command Strange, Monrroe & Satl

Jochem: Producers – Keeno, Netsky, Hybrid Minds & Monrroe. Dj’s Keeno, Netsky & Hybrid Minds.

How do you feel about the Drum & Bass scene today?

We think it’s still a very good community and that’s a miracle because of its size. A genre with a huge audience is most likely to fall apart and become normal without this community feeling. Also it is good that young producers get a lot of opportunities even when they are very very small. A lot of producers want to have a chat with you and maybe even collaborate with you if they like your music. Even though they have 3k followers on Soundcloud and you just haven’t even reached 100 yet. We’re happy to be a part of this community because it means the coming 10 to 15 years will be great with a lot of releases & gigs.

Do you have any advice for other up & coming producers & Dj’s?

Produce tunes you like. Don’t follow a specific style because it gives you fame! Also deliver a wide spectrum of tunes. Do not hold on to the same elements over and over again. It will get boring overtime. But if you want to improve your sounds you could always contact more experienced DnB producers. Or search for forums with a production section where you can ask feedback. We learned a lot from these things. Also watch a lot of masterclasses and tutorials.

What has been the most memorable time since your involvement in the scene?

The moment we heard that we were going to have a release. For me personally (Querijn) it felt like a dream coming true. I wanted to achieve this goal since I was 12 years old. Although it was a bit fame based back then.

What are your future plans on Default Recordings?

I guess we will release many more tunes on the label. And maybe even make it bigger if we have a recognizable name haha. But for now we are still small you can expect to have most of our releases on Default Recordings 🙂

Comma – New Artist Q&A

How did you first get involved in the Underground music scene?

Throughout high school I always had a large interest in drum and bass, but being too young to attend actual events, me and my friends would arrange parties in different venues around our local town. These would often get shutdown by the police by it gave me an insight into drum and bass and the rave scene. Once I turned 18 I started attending actual events and festivals.

What made you get into the producing side of things?

I guess what first inspired me was listening to the UKF dubstep tutorial song on the UKF dubstep channel when I was about 14 and was fooled into thinking producing was as easy as the song made it out to be. I think it’s safe to say I was wrong. From then on I’ve always had a copy of FL on my computer.

What influences you when making music?

I’m a big fan of loads of different genres apart from drum and bass. I experiment with loads of different sounds and I try to get inspiration from these different styles when producing my tracks. I guess my style is currently a melting pot of minimal drum and bass and jump up, taking different elements from each. I also tend to try and make music that is similar to what I listen to in the car so it changes quite often.

Can you tell us about your production process?

Most of the time I will start with either a drum pattern or sample that I want to work with. From here I will usually load up a vst (either Serum or Massive) and make the dirtiest synth possible and work from there. I usually go back to a track multiple times changing or adding things before I finally think it’s done.

What makes drum & bass different from other genres?

The versatility of it. I would consider myself quite young in the spectrum of producers out there, and the fact that my dad was listening to jungle and drum and bass when he was younger and now I produce it just shows that so far it has stood up to the test of time and evolving with each generation.

Who are your favourite Producers/Dj’s?

Right now I’m loving Skeptical, Nausika, Alix Perez and Kahn and Neek on the producing side. DJ wise I would have to say Skeptical and Alix Perez along with Chimpo, Serum, Calibre and Lenzman.

How do you feel about the Drum & Bass scene today?

I think it’s great; there are loads of events going on up and down the country. It also has a heavy interest with the youth of today which ensures that it won’t be going anywhere quick.

Do you have any advice for other up & coming producers & Dj’s?

Yesterday you said tomorrow. You don’t get it by wishing. Basically just listen to one of Nike’s ads.

What has been the most memorable time since your involvement in the scene?

Driving to Croatia for Outlook for sure.

What are your future plans on Default Recordings?

I’m constantly producing and I have a few that are ready for release so keep your eyes peeled.

Effekttz – New Artist Q&A

How did you first get involved in the Underground music scene?

Got my first set of decks in 97′,Soundlab DLP1600’S . I spent every spare minute on them , up to 16 hrs a day sometimes. I started buying my vinyl from Vibe Records where i met some quality producers & dj’s like Coolhand Flex and Alibi . Done a few dj competitions early on . I had a residency at a night called Point Blank that Swan-E headlined at the end of 97′. The next year i was playing alongside Kenny Ken , Brockie , Marley Marl , A-Sides and Mampi Swift at an event called STEPPERS . Other events included Alpha Project where i played alongside Randall also Deadly Fusion playing alongside Twisted Individual . All the while mixing on several internet radio stations like www.Planetdnb.com , Bassbinterrorists , www.globaldnb.com ( every saturday 8pm – 10pm GMT ) and www.brainsmudge.com ( every wednesday 9pm-10pm GMT ). I have had the odd guest slot with Flapjack on dnbradio.com also i have done a few Pirate radio stations one being RudeFM back in 2002.

What made you get into the producing side of things?

Going to Vibe Records and Streetsounds to buy vinyl and meeting producers, watching them work got me intrigued and the thought of playing my own tracks to an audience swung it for me.

What influences you when making music?

My influences vary really from hearing new released tracks or just flicking through a new sample pack. I get up every day and all i think about is making beats so i don’t need no help in starting a track. Still got the love even after 19 years.

Can you tell us about your production process?

I like to start off with a strong kick and snare and then root through the sample packs and find a string maybe, from there i am already making the track in my head trying to find samples to fit the bill.

What makes drum & bass different from other genres?

Drum & Bass is always changing. It’s fast paced and needs to be kept up with itself. It’s versatile and there are many styles to choose from.

Who are your favourite Producers/Dj’s?

I dont really have a favorite producer as such. The likes of A-Sides, Saxxon, Randall, Jaybee, Pixel, Vapour, The Invaders, Serum and Ed-Rush & Optical are a few but the list could go on. As for Djs again my list could go on and on but Kenny Ken , Hype , Randall , Coolhand Flex are probably the top few i listen to the most.

How do you feel about the Drum & Bass scene today?

Like i said before the fast paced and versatility of Drum & Bass make it very interesting. The varying styles are making it appealing to a wider age group bringing alot more people to the scene. I’m enjoying being a small part of a big thing. It’s a good time to be involved.

Do you have any advice for other up & coming producers & Dj’s?

Don’t stop doing what you love. Ignore the haters and do your thing, Your time will come.

What has been the most memorable time since your involvement in the scene?

Luckily for me i have several highlights. One is looking up from the decks while playing a Hokey Cokey Bootleg i made and watching a whole venue full of people actually doing the Hokey Cokey all arm in arm then having to reload it a few times so they could do it all again. Also mixing alongside some of the biggest names in the scene including people who i had listened to from a young age. Loving certain tunes and growing up to be friends with the very people that made those tunes.

What are your future plans on Default Recordings?

I have a couple of little gems awaiting release in the future but apart from that i am on it every day so be seeing you soon. Big-Up’s

DJ Ransome – New Artist Q&A

How did you first get involved in the Underground music scene?

I was a college student and I had not long started a two year media production course (which later I decided wasn’t the right choice for me) and I managed to meet a fellow student who at the time was starting up a small record label which did Hard Dance music. We got talking, I sent a few demos to him and got my first release on there and he put me in contact with other producers/djs in the Hard Dance scene.

What made you get into the producing side of things?

From an early age I was always into music, used to play the keyboard a lot and record ‘songs’ I had written onto mini-tape. My Dad’s friend also wrote music and had a studio set up which I always enjoyed playing with when I visited. I think the enthusiasm continued through and when I finally got my first DAW and a laptop, that really helped me.

What influences you when making music?

I listen to lots of varieties of music, and I take in what I hear. I find this is something that I do instinctively now. I do listen to drum and bass music mainly so I always take influences from the genre.

Can you tell us about your production process?

The production process for me usually starts with me spending time getting the drum section sounding full. I usually have days where I create my own drum layers and make my own sample library. After the drums, normally I’d look for samples and little loops and ideas. I work a lot with samples so it’s all about getting the main structure of the track down before going back and filling it out. At this point, I’m doing a rough mixdown as I go but it’s not as important. It’s good to just get the ideas down because we all know that they don’t last forever!.

What makes drum & bass different from other genres?

Drum and Bass is very technical in production I feel. It’s one of those genres where you can make a clean sounding drum and bass track where it’s all about the sound design however you can flip it over and write something that sounds gritty, hard and lacks that clean production you find in other genres. Other genres in EDM rely on important formulas such as kick drums but I think with drum and bass there are so many ways to achieve the same sound. Production is not about rules in my opinion, if it sounds good, that’s all that matters.

Who are your favourite Producers/Dj’s?

Too many to name because there are so many! Artists that come to mind are people like Random Movement, Silence Groove, Calibre, Nu:Logic, Current Value, Noisia, Mefjus representing the harder stuff. I don’t really have favourite DJs as such, because the quality is too good to pick people out. The people who I listen to on radio shows, supporting etc they know who they are.

How do you feel about the Drum & Bass scene today?

Drum & Bass as a genre itself is in a good place at the moment, the sound design and production levels are always improving. The output of the sub-genres is always immense, buying too many great EPs at the moment! You’ll always have that ‘commercial’ side in itself which can always bring wide spread debates over but I think drum and bass is one of those genres where people will just write/dj how they want to and that’s that. Sometimes it’s not about playing all the ‘bangers’ on big festivals but it’s good how big dnb is getting across state-side now. The european’s are still well on top and know how to push drum and bass to new boundaries.

Do you have any advice for other up & coming producers & Dj’s?

If I were to give advice, I think it’s important to focus on one thing; Djing or production. I actually prefer writing music rather than Djing which is counter-intuitive considering of my artist name! I love doing the radio shows that I do every week on DNBRadio, considering at the moment I’m busy with university studies I enjoy playing great drum & bass music worldwide. I think if you’re starting out, look around, get in contact with other DJs/producers. The internet is a wonderful place to learn production techniques. Get in contact with people, send over demos and DJ mixes to radio sites, you just never know. I got onto DNBRadio from a friend who I had met over another online streaming site many years ago. Also, one last thing and I wish I’d have done this, actually do send out stuff to people. One thing I still to this day am afraid to do a lot due to fear of rejection or nothing back, I sit on lots of music that I feel is crap.

What has been the most memorable time since your involvement in the scene?

For me, most memorable has been hearing one of my tunes being featured in a Camo & Krooked Mix a year ago. The buzz I got was insane. Still get the giddy feeling when I hear others play my music.

What are your future plans on Default Recordings?

Future plans, to have more releases with the label! As much as my artist name is not the catchiest and can be misleading, I love to write music. Djing I couldn’t do without as well, I’ll always keep practicing at getting better. Always room to improve.

Accelerated Culture – New Artists Q&A

How did you first get involved in the Underground music scene?

Accelerated Culture started out as under age ravers with fake id’s going to big drum and bass events such as Best of British, Telepathy, One Nation, Raindance etc.. We were young and loving the music and hype party atmosphere. Our favourite DJ’s at the time were Andy C, Mampi Swift, Bad Company, Nicky Black market etc..

What made you get into the producing side of things?

We originally started DJ’ing so we could play our favourite tunes that we had heard in the clubs, from there it was a gradual progression into making music and the formation of Accelerated Culture came a few years later.

What influences you when making music?

Anything from a sample to a everyday sound you hear on the street. We both have different tastes completely apart from dnb. Many times we will hear a sound record it on a phone and take it into the studio for vibe or beat. Whatever grabs us at the time, we go with.

Can you tell us about your production process?

The Accelerated Culture process is different for every tune, in essence we don’t have a specific process and try and start fresh with every project. We work separately and together but in general we just go with the flow and try to keep it as simple as possible.

What makes drum & bass different from other genres?

Its fast tempo and high energy make it one of the most exciting genres in the edm scene. It’s a very versatile genre which allows a lot of other music to be become adapted to it. The dnb industry has been growing and with so many new artist’s and audience’s coming in it is a very exciting time to be part of it.

Who are your favourite Producers/Dj’s?

There is a lot of good music out there. In saying that Pendulum, Friction, Andy C, Noisa, Mampi Swift, Alex Perez, Ed Rush & Optical, are just a few names that really stand out.

How do you feel about the Drum & Bass scene today?

There is a lot of good music and a lot of good producers which has opened things up more doors in the genre and crossing over to others. We feel at the end of the day drum and bass has been constantly changing and redefining over the years and no doubt will continue to do so.

Do you have any advice for other up & coming producers & Dj’s?

Keep going, finish as many projects as you can and do not loose sight of your goal.

What has been the most memorable time since your involvement in the scene?

None specific they have all been great but playing at Brixton mass brings back some good memories.

What are your future plans on Default Recordings?

We are excited that the new Accelerated Culture EP is on the way, and we have a truck load of projects in the finishing stages so watch this space for more music in the future. Massive respect to Default Recordings, a solid label with some great ideas. Watch out and expect to see more of Accelerated Culture and Default Recordings later this year.

Projekt – New Artist Q&A

How did you first get involved in the Underground music scene?

Well i haven’t really been involved in the scene until now really, but music has been around me most of my life.

What made you get into the producing side of things?

Well me and my best mate taner we use to just mix at his after a day at college, we use to mix jump up and a bit of house thats how it all really started for me.

Then after a while i just downloaded a DAW and loads of bloody samples and taught myself how to produce really, and haven’t stopped enjoying ever since!

What influences you when making music?

A lot of things, life mostly haha…but i guess certain things do make me get in that creative mode.

The most creative i can get is after a music event, because my mind has been pretty much tortured with all different types of productions through the whole night the next morning i tend to just go and open my computer and let the creativity flow.

Can you tell us about your production process?

I normally start with the beat, that way i can eventually get the idea of what im trying to achieve in the outcome, so if its a funky neuro break then i would go onto my bassline.

I’ve heard people start with their intros first but i always make my basic flow in the track and start to add the rest of the bits after that, that way i can work my intro around the main part of the track

What makes drum & bass different from other genres?

Well for me its an ever changing genre of music, as they say its a genre that never dies! and on the other hand i don’t think your ever going to find a genre that can keep a single person moving for 8 hours in one night and not get tired ha ha.

Drum and bass is a wonderful example of how sound can move someone’s emotions, even with a sweet dnb steppa you don’t even need vocals you just need that rhythm and a good bassline that for me is why drum and bass stands out from any other genre!

Who are your favourite Producers?

That’s a hard question, I would have to say mefjus obviously because he is the god of neurofunk!

But at the moment I am really digging Amoss’s style, love their productions!

and last but not least technimatic, they amaze me with their style and the feeling you get when you hear a technimatic track being dropped in a set is unbeatable…biggest fan right here!

Who are your favourite DJ’s?

I’m going to say Dj Marky….now that guy knows his shit! Never seen someone mix so passionately

I cant really mention any others cause everyone has their own style of mixing which shouldn’t be the best or the worst, you would have to ask me on a night out which was my favourite.

How do you feel about the Drum & Bass scene today?

Got to appreciate all these new artists that are bringing the genre into the big time events, don’t think I have ever heard so much drum and bass being incorporated into other genres of music.

You even getting drum and bass bangers on the charts now! Who would of thought!

Do you have any advice for other up & coming producers & Dj’s?

Be passionate in what you do, don’t let it become something you don’t enjoy.

For me the whole point in music is to express myself and let out bad energy…even good energy.

And being able to play live in front of people is my dream…and getting paid for it is only a bonus of the job don’t let that become the most important thing otherwise you have defeated the purpose of why you did it in the first place.

What has been the most memorable time since your involvement in the scene?

Just being in a crowd of random strangers skanking the whole night away, have the best time of my life at a drum and bass event and I am going to cherish those moments to I get old.

What are your future plans on Default Recordings?

To release tracks that help to inspire people in their everyday lives, and play sets that can get a crowd moving ha ha.

And to collab with other artists! That’s what im looking forward to the most, its amazing what 2 peoples perspectives on music can sound like when it comes together. And last I think my overall plan is just to have fun…life is short so live it to its full capacity…just live a little.

Creatures – New Artist Q&A

How did you first get involved in the Underground music scene?

We each have a love for electronic music and production and we have all taken the Level 3 BTEC Music Tech course at City of Bath College with Harvey going into his second year. Jake first got into the scene by going to festivals throughout his child life and teens and being exposed to heavy beats and bass from an early age. Ben has been listening to phat sounds for many years and this is now culminating in crafting his own. Harvey’s DJing skills began at a young age and has gone through every phase of drum and bass obsession.

What made you get into the producing side of things?

For Ben: Neurofunk and anything with dark reeses . For Harvey it’s Drum and Bass in general. For Jake it has always been a soulful love of music of all kinds and electronic music is just one inspiration.

What influences you when making music?

Ben: Interesting futuristic sounds. Harvey: Rolling beats and dark sounds; anything which makes me dance. Jake: Everything.

Can you tell us about your production process?

Start with good sounding drum samples. Give each sound its’ own space with EQs and Stereo imaging. Push each sound to the max with the least amount of plugins and effects. Take inspiration from other styles of music of all kinds.

What makes drum & bass different from other genres?

The range of different styles, sound design, soundscaping, rhythmical variations and generally different kinds of imagination makes drum and bass stand out for us. We love the element of excitement and exhilaration which can be found in drum and bass. The kind of themes which you can hear in drum and bass are often much more vivid and create a far more visceral experience than those which can be found in many other genres. We Love Drum and Bass!

Who are your favourite Producers?

Some of our favourites: Subtension, Maztek, Noisia, Spor, Billain, Octane and DLR, Break, Dj Die, Kryptic Minds, Biome, Icicle, Stealth, SCAR, Allied, Amoss, Audio, Detail, Alix Perez, iM3, Armenez, Audiomission.

Who are your favourite DJ’s?

B-Traits, Harvey, Audiomission, Loxy, Ant TC1, Emperor,

How do you feel about the Drum & Bass scene today?

We love it! We feel that there is plenty of fresh material still hitting our eardrums and we reckon there will be for years to come. Our vision is to create wild music which satisfies the needs of the progressive nature of the scene.

Do you have any advice for other up & coming producers & Djs?

Get monitors, practice, don’t overdo it on processing and enjoy what you’re doing. Also, do something different, we don’t want to keep hearing the same music!

What has been the most memorable time since your involvement in the scene?

Producing together as a group and creating music which we all enjoy.

What are your future plans on Default Recordings?

Continue making tunes and see what the label has to offer us and vice versa. We look forward to what is to come with the label and also developing our skills!

Kidsan – New Artist Q&A

 

How did you first get involved in the Underground music scene?

Mainly just through friends sending me songs and telling me to listen to certain producers. To start off with I didn’t really take to drum and bass very well as I thought it just sounded like a repetitive fast beat with strange computer noises over the top but after finding a few tracks from Pendulum, Nero, Netsky . etc. to ease me into the genre I started to like it. Once my friends had got me from loving all things metal to being obsessed with drum and bass I pretty much took it from there and started to search for artists and producers that I liked and tried to find music that was new and had something different about it.

What made you get into the producing side of things?

I’ve been into making music since I was about 10 and started playing guitar. After being in a few bands I decided I should have a go at recording some of my own songs so I got an 8-track and recorded some songs. Around a year or so later my friends started to use software such as Ableton and FL studio and they introduced me to them. I really got into it and started to learn as much as I could from the internet and Youtube tutorials and I basically just messed around with Ableton and other software until I understood them and could get the sounds that I wanted.

What influences you when making music?

I have quite a lot of influences when I am making music. I generally listen to a range of genres or get some sample packs from different genres to get a nice mix up and to get some new sounds. There are some influences that happen by accident such as in making ‘All I need’, I was playing the piano intro whilst there was a thunder storm and it was pouring down with rain and I thought it added the perfect background ambience so I used some samples to replicate what I was hearing. I think it’s the little things like that which give a song character and add a little something extra.

Can you tell us about your production process?

I don’t really have a process I just end up making a song out of the blue usually. I tend to either think of a tune in my head and then get the midi down and take from there or find some samples or create a synth that I like and start to build the song around that. I also tend to write most of my chord progressions and tunes on guitar and then translate it into a synth or just record it and use it in the song if I think it will sound good in context. But like I said most of my songs happen by accident or come about when I’m not expecting them so the process is different for every song.

What makes drum & bass different from other genres?

It’s mostly the energy and groove that I find separates it from other genres. I think that the following drum and bass has separates it from other genres as well, as drum and bass fans are usually very loyal to the genre and try to listen to a range of producers and DJ’s. Although, I prefer it when drum and bass has aspects of other genres included to mix it up and to create a hybrid as hybrid genres are always more interesting and experimental.

Who are your favourite Producers?

This is kind of a hard question as I have endless amounts of favourites and they pretty much change every week, but at the moment I would say Lenzman, Ivy lab, Calibre, Logistics, Fred V and Grafix and Brookes Brothers are the producers that I’m listening to the most.

Who are your favourite DJ’s?

The top of the list has to be London Elektricity, and then I would say high contrast, Dimension and Andy C. All of these would be in my list of favourite producers as well but I saved them for this question as they are putting out my favourite mixes and playing all the best tunes around at the minute.

How do you feel about the Drum & Bass scene today?

I think that the drum and bass scene today has changed quite a bit from when I first started listening to it. I’ve only really listened to Drum and bass for the past 5 or 6 years but even in that time there has been quite a change as there has been much more drum and bass songs in the charts and it is becoming more mainstream which is good in a way because the more the merrier, but it has affected the style of music as well due to producers trying to conform to more popular styles of music and dialing back on the parts which their original fans used to really like. Things such as the heavy bass, more complex beats and synths and also the actual synths used have changed as many producers are using trance and house style synths at the moment.

Do you have any advice for other up & coming producers & Djs?

Just stick at it, even when it seems hard and like it’s not going anywhere. Make sure you understand the features of the software and how to use it then learn a bit about music theory to help with your understanding of how things should fit in the mix and other aspects of processing and mastering. Main thing to remember is… Practice makes perfect.

What has been the most memorable time since your involvement in the scene?

My most memorable moment is pretty recent but it has got to be seeing Shy FX and Rockwell at a local club a couple weeks ago. I’ve been listening to Rockwell quite a lot recently and his set was great. I’m looking forward to going to more drum and bass nights as I’ve just turned 18 so I’ve missed out on loads of really good nights in the past when I couldn’t get ID.

What are your future plans on Default Recordings?

I plan to hopefully keep releasing songs and just keep practicing and working on tunes to make myself a better producer and to develop my sound.
