I'll be joined by fellow musicians, engineers and all-round audiophiles who kindly share their tips, stories and ingenious insight from the bizarre world of music production. I shall answer questions and seek knowledge from other music makers on a quest to discover how to make things sound RIGHT.

    HOWA EP 90 - ALEX BILO

    HOWA EP 90 - ALEX BILO

    Alex Bilo made the BTS mega smash hit Butter as part of a crack writing team.
    A song that spent weeks and weeks at the Billboard number 1 spot.
    Just huge. HUGE!
    Hear how it went down from a man I'm happy to say is my friend. 
    Yep it’s rare I’m friendly with such big writers but we go way back now..
    Ah how the time flies!
    Alex came up working with many badasses before he hit it big
    Here’s some links to his old school crew:

    HOWA EP 89 - STIMMING

    HOWA EP 89 - STIMMING

    Stimming joins the pod for a hearty, autumnal, philosophical ramble which I found most fulfilling (actually we spoke in the summer but the falling leaves around here are turning my sense of time)
    He's been producing quality textural groovers for a long time and his new Album LUDWIG has just taken flight and he's certainly stretching himself to new astral spaces. Highly recommended! He says of this new album process:
    “I was making a living from dance music for such a long time, and during the last years I came to the point where I said to myself, ‘man you are hiding so much of your own horizon”
    He's a funny and honest chap that has found his voice in the noisy world of house and "outer" house. The mastery of sound is spot on. Dynamic, patient, immerse, harmonically rich. Many adjectives apply :) Welcome to the pod Stimming!
    Nitty 89 is dedicated to
    maffez synthmods who is a wonderfully talented modder and builder in Austria who turned my RD8 into a WAY more interesting machine. This nitty is an attempt to SING drum patterns using audio loopers and envelope followers to create control tracks and it works rather well!

    EP 88 - ERICK THE ARCHITECT

    EP 88 - ERICK THE ARCHITECT

    I was very happy to catch up with Erick Elliott aka Erick Arc Elliott or Erick the Architect, a Renaissance man par excellence. He's a prolific and talented musician and producer and is arguably best known for his work in his band Flatbush Zombies but as you will find out he’s so much more than a musician at this point. He's not afraid to move into new and uncharted territory and I must admit it was his twitch channel (link here ) that made me an instant fan. It's so well done, his presence on the station is so infectious and the show runs like a wildly creative leap into a kaleidoscopic universe complete with tearaway videos, performances, downright silliness and you get the sense that this guy has an endless tap open on his creative stream. We get into all that.
    The music, the come-up, harnessing the strength of being different, how to deal with self doubt and to have the courage of your conviction. We get into his collabs with James Blake and much more. It gives me great pleasure to welcome on the show Erick the Architect.
    Link to his site here
    Nitty sees me hitting sustain on the voice and piano artificially using Melodyne. Good fun

    HOWA EP 87- NED RUSH

    HOWA EP 87- NED RUSH

    Who is that Ned?

    Well for one thing 

    He is one of the very best players of the game of Ableton!

    A sharp witted and rooted fellow.

    He makes a lot of rather good, anarchic and playful music that can be found on his  bandcamp under the name Rude_NHS

    look at titles like "flocks of pigeons making noises that sound like old women agreeing with each other"

    cheeky rascal!

    that's Ned

    but he's also got his seriousness and an absolute level of badassssssery that you hear in his youtube drops, the man knows how to play the ! out of a gtr and a key and a bass and a drum. He is well versed in "traditional" music as well as immersed in the new school digital possibilities.

    welcom!e

    yep

    NED RUSH

    for more info about this very talented man click here

    He was kind enough to share a very tasty ableton set of his for you all to check. Open this if you've a copy of live and take look around. Just bonkers right?  download for ff f f  FREE>>

    _______
    Nitty 87 is part 2 of the Neumann KU100 Head sessions. This time it's all in an empty garage with paint pots, clap impulses, major doofs and the joy of processed binaural sound!

    Thanks to STILLALIVE for the excellent show music!! so intense. I love it. 

    Here's a link to all of his work. click it !!!
