Artist Feature: Key Wane

Posted July 17, 2017, 8:02 a.m.

Artist Feature: Key Wane - Beyoncé, Drake, Big Sean

It would be easy to forget when looking at his album credits that Key Wane is just 27 years old. He has the producer/artist roster some work decades to rack up. In fact Key Wane seems to have a knack for not just working with A-List artists at the top of their game, but providing them with hit single after hit single.

But with all that success and more platinum records than he even has time to hang on his walls right now, Key Wane is staying humble, hungry and active. We caught up with him to talk shop and hear his story.

Behind the Song: Rock and Roll by Halocene

Posted Sept. 17, 2014, 1:11 p.m.

The band Halocene won our recent A-List Song Challenge with their upbeat punk rock anthem 'Rock and Roll'. I was really impressed with the production so I asked the band if they were up for sharing the Reason-file with the community—and they were!

If you have Reason 7 or above, you can download the track and check out how it was made. This is a great example of mixing in the box, with extensive use of Reason's big mixer. Regardless of skill level, there are both songwriting and production tricks to learn here. Brad from Halocene was even kind enough to record a short little voice over on how you get around the document at the end of the song.

Download the song and check it out!

A-List Song Challenge Winner

Posted Sept. 12, 2014, 12:47 p.m.

We challenged the Reason community to create the best song they could, featuring the A-List Electric Guitarist or A-List Acoustic Guitarist. And wow did you deliver! From the darkest industrial metal to heart-melting ballads, there were some fantastic entries this time around. We had a really hard time picking the winning entry. In the end, there can only be one winner though and the jury at PropellerHQ have chosen... Halocene!

Much impromptu headbanging occurred at the office when "Rock N Roll" started playing the first time. Pure energy! The combination of a great hook, sky-high production values and gritty guitars made Halocene the winners of ALL Propellerhead Rack Extensions. Congratulations!

Make sure you check out Halocene's music, their latest album was entirely made in Reason!
