Chill, Interviews | Trove Shares About Tastes, Dreams, And The Year So Far[Exclusive]

Posted by on June 20, 2019

Trove has experience some riveting moments in his young career, with over 20 million streams to his name already and a heavy reputation in the songwriting community as a guy who’s got “It.” Singles like “Revelry” and “GTFO” put Trove’s color’s on full display for all to judge. Needless to say, his sound and collaboration partners always impress as the soloist continues to add new fans to his base.

Trove took the time out to chat with us about life, end of the year, and much more. Check out the interview in full below:

What EDM music school stands out to you the most?

Trove: I have some friends that have attended Icon Collective in LA and have spoken really highly of the education and training there

For young producers out there, when would you say is the right time to quit the day job?

Trove:I tend to jump the gun on this kind of thing. It definitely wasn’t the right time for me but it drove me to really try and make it work. I would recommend honing your sound and skill until you feel like the music you’re making is creating enough opportunity to keep you busy and learning throughout the week. Save up some money in the bank so you’re a little supported and go hard full time to make it work.

Who would be your dream collaborator?

Trove:Would love to work with Rufus Du Sol or Flume.

How do you do get the creative process flowing?

Trove:Usually I’ll scroll through sample packs or presets until I find something that pricks my ear and then I’ll play some chords I like. Once I have something I can built off, I completely change and tweak the sound so it sounds unique to me. Lyrically, I’m always scribbling notes and often times they’re terrible ideas but sometimes you get a good one to build off of too.

What music platforms or general music apps do you find most relevant right now?

Trove:Spotify and Apple Music I think are at the forefront while platforms like YouTube music and TikTok are on the come up. Being able to see your stats and influence throughout different regions as an artist is a big win!

What are you most excited about this year?

Trove:All the traveling I’ve done and continue to do! I’ve visited 7 countries this year already and will be doing 3-4 more this year for songwriting.

Techno | Point Blank Shares About History Of Techno Music

Posted by on November 17, 2016

Techno fans have a special treat today. The electronic music school has released a video discussing not only the history of techno music, but also production tips discussing, in detail, elements of education for the Ableton user. James Wiltshire, who has been featured talking about historical and production points with Point Blank before, uses his charming UK voice and impressive intellect to deliver a balance of history and knowledge.

Dope facts you probably didn’t know if you got into dance music this decade: Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson began to create what is now known as early Detroit Techno. Early tech-heads were influenced by the book Third Wave – I won’t give away any more interesting facts – but the video is worth the watch.

News | G4G Initiative Is Emazing Lights’ Best Move Yet

Posted by on December 20, 2015

There are few times where a story goes beyond the music / product / festival, and it is those times I am happy to share most about.

Emazing Lights, known around the word for their foundation of the gloving movement, their Shark Tank appearance, and sister clothing company iHeartRaves, has got the internet buzzing about one fan’s life that’s been changed forever from gloving. His name is Matthew.

Matthew deals with cerebral palsy and a paraplegic disability. He is only 17. Like any American with a disability at school, students and life in general isn’t always kind to people in Matthew position; but it was one action from a single individual that changed his life.

After seeing Matthew casually practicing arm and finger whips and dance motions, his brother suggested that he get into gloving.

One glove set and a handful of practice sessions later, Matthew was deep into a new hobby that not only brought a new form joy and happiness into his life, but also improved cognitive abilities once hindered by his disorders.

Shocked, Matthew’s parents contacted Emazing Lights to tell them how there son’s finger dexterity and arm mobility improved. This connection between EL and Matthews family inspired a series of actions which will now have an impact that reaches far beyond the two groups.

After meeting the CEO and learning about the new, but unanticipated medical benefits of Gloving, Emazing Lights has started a charity initiative entitled “Glove 4 Glove” which boast a massive, but noble undertaking: for every glove set sold, Emazing Lights will donate one glove set to someone in need.

If that’s not an inspiring story, I don’t know what is. Emazing Lights has set a standard that other EDM accessory companies should strive for.

The Glove 4 Glove initiative is well underway. To learn about G4G or how Matthew’s life has changed, follow the links below.
