As a bass player in his local church, it wasn't until Preditah saw Reason 1.0 at age 14 before he realized you could actually make your own beats. His timing couldn't have been better. A new genre called grime had just arrived on the UK music scene and Preditah set about to learn and ultimately master the style. We visited Preditah at his university dorm room, which doubles as his production studio to check out how he layers his grime instrumentals.
Cookie Monsta first experienced making music on the Playstation but it was no game for him. Before long, he had graduated up to Reason and had gained recognition for some of the most grimey and aggressive dubstep basses you could imagine. We caught up with Cookie Monsta at his Nottingham, UK studio to see how he layers up synths to accomplish one main goal: melting your face off!
When Daniel Snow sets out to record he starts out by clearing the dinner table first, not because his mom raised him that way but because that's where he makes his home studio! Yet Daniel's music sounds fantastic. He has passion, character, talent, and everything else you can't buy off the shelf. We met up with him to see his recording process first hand and you gotta hear the result.
