Quotes

#Quote
1 [on EDM and drug problems in the music world] They are within a minority of shows and, although they are tragic and shouldn't be overlooked, you can't blame an idea for how a culture has taken it and run with it.
2 [on 'electronic dance music', 2014) I don't think I created the scene. People caught wind of what I was doing and created this kind of crazy dance music. Even though EDM is still one of the biggest things right now, it's still not as chart-topping as rap or country or pop music. It's still underground to some extent.
3 To me, it's always a joy to create music no matter what it takes to actually get there. The real evils are always whatever stops you from doing that - like if your CPU is spiking and you have to sit there and bounce all your MIDI to audio. Now that's annoying!
4 With 'Bangarang,' I didn't make any announcement, no campaign. I just put it on my Facebook and some other places. That's how I've done everything with my previous records. I've always kept it organic.
5 I want to continue to constantly put out great music, expand further and further with the live show and music that is attracting music fans from all over the place, not only for ravers or electronic heads.
6 I was never really a DJ... I just kinda figured it all out at once as I started to tour. I was making music and producing and I just had to start to DJ as I got more into touring.
7 I'm always on tour, so I'm always trying new tracks out live before they're released. That's more necessity than anything, because I don't get a proper chance to sit in a studio and work on tracks like other producers do.
8 My best monster bass sounds have come from FM8. People think they all come from Massive, but most of the ones that kids online are trying to recreate in Massive are actually from FM8. I also really like Sylenth1, my Tone2 Gladiator and some other granular soft synths as well.
9 Throughout my years in From First to Last, I was always dabbling and making electronic music on my own time. The first records I ever owned were crossover electronic rock, like Prodigy, Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails.
10 The people who I grew up making music with, we've all grown up and become successful in different ways. My manager supported me since I was 16 and believed in me as a musician. He's been there since Day 1, and there's so much to be said about doing something with people that you love.
11 I do most of my vocals - aside from a couple of little one-shot vocal samples. I record everything into the Saffire with an SM58 then scratch it with loads of plug-ins. I don't do much vocoding to be honest. All my vocals are usually done with Melodyne and a ton of other plug-ins to make it sound weird.
12 I don't think I'll be remembered in a big Michael Jackson, Led Zeppelin way. I think I'll be remembered in this way: by the people who were there, who can't capture or explain it. I'm not trying to brag or anything. It's not about me. It's about facilitating a good time for everyone.
13 I like doing things in a very minimal, unconventional way as a personal way of saying, 'Look, I made a career out of carefully and craftfully, though unconventionally, making records on laptops and blown speakers.'
14 I really like iZotope Trash, which is a great plug-in for distortion, as is Ohmicide, which I love. It's an absolutely crazy multiband distortion, compression, EQ and filter, which pretty much lets you do anything.
15 If something gets too easy... I want to do something else. But every album is going to be me, no matter what.
16 No one worries about genre when they're dancing. They're not asking themselves, 'Is this song a dubstep song?'
17 Singing's not my real passion.
18 There's been not a dime spent on marketing for any record I've ever put out.
19 I seem to spend a minimum of eight hours a day in transit of some sort or another... that's eight hours of your life gone. People always ask if I suffer from jet lag, but it's kinda become really normal for me... Although the jet lag does become a factor and you're pretty much always tired.
20 I don't do much press. I don't like to talk about my music too much before I do it.
21 I don't like being overexposed. I don't like being on covers. And I don't like people talking about me.
22 I don't like hype cluttering art.
23 I don't really think about recognition; I'm not really involved.
24 I prefer the gloominess to the sun. I don't know why.
25 The greatest gift of all time is that you can make creation infectious because people spend less time being negative... If you log all the time with negativity in the while world, I wonder how much better the world would be if people sat down and did something positive. It spirals.
26 Hip-hop and electronic music are so similar, in the fact that they're both very visceral, have so much bass; a lot of times, it's the same tempos. The culture and some of the sound design is different but a lot of times, it's the same stuff.
27 I don't care about having money. It's about being happy, man.
28 I never set out to be part of a genre, because I listen to all types of music.
29 I book myself tight. If I have any time off, I get antsy.
