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.

Bass | N3WP0RT Premieres His Emotionally Charged Future-Influenced Original “Time”

Posted by on September 28, 2018

N3WP0RT’s “Time” feels more like a story through music that your typical superficial dance music release. Focusing on light-hearted, future bass-influenced atmospheres, the song’s strength comes from not just the forefront elements like the the synth work and vocal, but also the arrangement – allowing the single to place an unwitting infectious spell over the listener.

Given N3WP0RT’s experience, the curiosity around his style, direction, and quality level starts to reveal. The soloist has over 50 YouTube uploads, a Trap Nation release, and over 1 million streams, all garnered within the last 18 months. The Washington-based DJ/producer is on to something and established curators in the scene are taking notice.

N3WP0RT share a message behind the creation of “Time” below:

“Time” is a carefree future bass track that communicates emotions of freedom and joy. It’s the type of song you want to blast as you dance without a care in the world, knowing the world is yours. – N3WP0RT

Pop | Alxxa Teams Up With Gazzo For “Umbrella” Cover

Posted by on September 18, 2017

We had a chance to meet Alxxa over the weekend in Los Angeles and she’s the real deal. Her brand new take on Rihanna & Jay-Z’s “Umbrella” has us instantly hooked. Of the Gazzo produced cover she said:

“’Umbrella’ is such a badass song, and Gazzo and I knew we could do something different with it. That’s always the test of a good song, whether it’s stripped down, produced out, thrown into different genres, does it still work? Rihanna definitely got it right with this one and we had a good time putting our own spin to it.”

Keep your eye on Alxxa. She’s on the rise.

DO SOMETHING

House | CID & CeeLo Green Will Make You A “Believer”

Posted by on June 9, 2017

CID. Unreal producer and DJ. CeeLo Green. Unreal artist and vocalist. They combine forces to deliver an absolute smasher called “Believer” that will have you moving 5 seconds into pressing that play button. CeeLo Green doesn’t always do EDM, but when he does, he does it with CID music. Of the new single, CID said:

“We are living in a time where so many bad things are happening around the world and it’s heartbreaking and discouraging. Despite that I think it’s still important to believe in the power of music. Music can be uplifting even on the darkest days. So especially now, I wanted to release a song that could give people hope and inspire peace and unity.” – CID

A wise choice as we predict “Believer” is going to smash the Spotify charts with its quality production, sunny vibes, and upbeat message. Make sure you use and abuse that play button. We will for weeks to come.

Stream it on Spotify, here.

Albums | Odd Mob Is Down For Love

Posted by on November 15, 2016

Odd Mob strikes back with a new single entitled “Down For Love” graced with newcomer Helen’s catchy vocals. This time, the duo comprised of Robbie and Harry delivers a track fusing Hip Hop and Future Bass. In fact, Odd Mob is constantly on the lookout for new sonorities to play around with, continually developing and growing their own sound. Would it be their 90’s throwback ‘Into You feat. Starley’, which dominated the ARIA club chart at #1 for a record 7 weeks, their Indian influenced track “Origin” or their bass heavy “Gassed Up”, Robbie and Harry are relentlessly experimenting with all of what music has to offer.

“We’re both huge fans of rap/hip-hop in general and basically started playing around with this old sampled drum beat. The whole track built itself around that in no time at all. It’s definitely one of our cleanest/tightest productions to date! We never set any boundaries when we hop in the studio so we’re always making stuff that sounds nothing like what we’ve made before. I mean, back in the day, songwriters only had access to a certain number of sounds, whether it be their guitar/drums or whatever analogue synth they happened to own. Nowadays we can literally use any sound in the whole world, so it just makes sense for us to always be making different music and experimenting with different sounds.” – Odd Mob
