Q: Introduce yourself...
Hi, I'm Ashley a.k.a Mystic Trip a Producer based in London.
Q: How did you get started producing drum and bass?
I started mixing before producing. I was playing out on local pirate radio stations and DJing wherever I could, and after a few years of playing the music I became interested in how it was being made. So I got a copy of Reason on a computer and started to get some ideas down.
Q: What can we expect from you musically?
It can vary depending on what i'm making, but I steer towards the melodic side of things.
Q: Who is supporting your music right now and how did you decide which tracks are good enough to promote?
A few people that I know of: Scott Allen, Conspire, Al Pack, Soultec... As far as deciding what music is good enough to promote, I would usually sleep on it...I find if I come back to a tune with fresh ears, and still really like what i'm hearing than It's good enough!
Q: What is the drum and bass music scene / community like in your area?
The scene here is strong, there's always something happening. It's nice to see people still go out for the music!
Q: What are you working with in the studio?
I use Reason, Some Yamaha HS80 monitors, a Mac, a PC and a little M-audio Axiom25 midi keyboard. I keep my set up basic!
Q: How were you able to develop your own sound?
I've loved music as far back as I can remember - Everything that I hear has shaped my sound in one way or another, whether it be an old soul tune, a drum pattern somewhere, or even something another artist has worked into their own production. If i like the sound of something, it's going to influence / shape my sound.
Q: Do you have any advice for young producers wanting to get started writing music?
Listen to as much music as you can! Across all genres.
Q: Do you have any new projects we can look out for from you?
Yeah, I'm finalising a few tracks that will be coming out soon. Also I have a limited 12" touching down. I'm really into my vinyl so i'm looking forward to that!
Q: Any shout outs or parting words?
Big up to everyone that's been following my sound and Thanks to you guys over at TMG!
