So Jordan, we have been seeing your name pop up quite a bit on Triple J and on the InTheMix website, great work ☺ What would you say have been your major successes so far as a producer?
Yeah it’s been great so far, had lots of momentum going into this year and the year before. Going into the Triple J studio twice for interviews was a big push for me, also being featured on Inthemix as a local producer you need to hear was also a big surprise!
We love your unique style, takes us back the 80s. What made you aim for this style of music.?
I didn’t start out making music by saying “I want to make 80’s music” I was experimenting with a lot of electronic/dance styles when I first started out…and somehow I grew more and more attracted to 80’s music. Started looking at artists who were pioneering the modern 80s revival scene and from there I’ve been making it since.
Do you have any upcoming shows or tours?
No current shows or tours are in place. I do aim for the earlier part of 2013 to hook up my live set and hopefully I can start touring mid 2013.
Many people we talk to in the music industry still have to balance a day job, how do you manage to squeeze in the time for music?
It’s not easy being a full time University student and part-time employee. Honestly I don’t manage my time…I spend way too much time making music haha! It’s something you need to keep at daily to produce results.
What can we expect from in the future, what releases do you have scheduled (are we aloud to have a sneak preview)?
Currently the aim for 2013 is an Album, so maybe less output from me in the year but hopefully I can get down to laying the foundations for my first LP.
Inspiration seems to be a key thing with musicians today, who would you say are your key influences?
Influences for me are pioneers of the 80’s revival scene, artists like Mitch Murder, Miami Nights 1984, Lazerhawk and MPM helped me realize my vision of what I wanted to make.
What influenced to start producing your own songs?
I simply got sick of DJing and had this urge to make my own music, it’s far more rewarding!
What software do you use to produce your music?
I run Ableton Live as my DAW with a handful of Arturia and Korg synth vsts. As well as a huge selection of 80s drum samples!
Any advice for the upcoming musicians?
Don’t rush making EPs/Albums, be patient and work hard at refining your sound. Too many young producers are too eager to release music that is really half-hearted in production. Put everything into it and patience and the results will show.
