Our Music Spotlight this week is up-and-coming DJ & producer, Draper. His work is designed to engage and embrace a range of genres through original creations in tandem with a string of prolific remixes – laden with a unique, liquidstep style of production. We had a chance to chat with Draper about his music and recommendations for other musicians.
Grooveshark: Who is your dream collaboration?
Draper: Sigur Ros, I think that would be such fun! They’re wizards of sound.
GS: What do you think is the most overused audio technique today?
D: Definitely risers/pitch fx that lead up to the ‘drop,’ I have a lot of admiration for tracks that have an effective impact from the chorus without using those ‘tricks.’
GS: What is your favorite product you can’t live without?
D: Definitely my desktop computer, it’s a beast that I spend far too much time on (mainly making music) and wherever it is, is home.
GS: How did you get involved with Grooveshark and why do you use it?
D: I got involved with Grooveshark a few years ago, it’s a really powerful tool for finding new music easily and creating playlists for yourself and others to enjoy.
GS: If you could give one tip to artists starting out right now, what would it be?
D: Take your time, you can hear when music is rushed, the best tracks are sometimes the simplest but time has gone into refining each element into the perfect sound for that track.
You can listen to Draper today in a Re-Broadcast playlist at 1pm EST on the Electro ▲ Chill Broadcast.
