UK based label DSV Audio prepares for a thoughtful new phase with the debut of their VA Rebirth compilation. Featuring a collection of the finest dubstep and bass music that the scene has to offer, the Rebirth compilation showcases artists of all magnitudes. Each record from the compilation offers a distinctive soundscape while forming a cohesive unit. DMCWORLD checks in with five of the artists bringing us the music…
What can you share with us about the creative process behind your track ‘Burning Chrome’?
I’ve always loved the energy of hardstyle and older dance music, so I set out to try and combine them here with the heaviness of modern dubstep!
Why do you feel like DSV Audio was a good fit for the track?
DSV has always showcased some of the best music from upcoming artists. They liked this track straight away, which I was really happy about!
What can you tell us about the production process behind ‘Program Terminated’? Was there something specific that inspired the track?
When it comes to writing music I always try to add somewhat of a story behind it. For this track, I just found a vocal sample online, which right away put me in mind of a futuristic, sci-fi atmosphere. From there I just developed the rest of the instrumentation and it all came together pretty easily. I would suggest to anyone trying to write music to base their tracks on stories they come up with!
What does it mean to you to be a part of the Rebirth compilation from DSV Audio?
Being part of the Rebirth project is huge for me. I not only have the opportunity to show what I’m capable of with music but also to help people in need. I believe this project shows how much we can do as a community.
We are intrigued by your track ‘Stimulants’ – what was it like producing this track and are you pleased with the result?
Producing this track was extremely fun for me! My goal was to try as many new things as possible, mixing as many genres as I could, and to experiment with new sounds. I’m not 100% pleased with the result, but then I never am! There is always room for improvement!
What does it mean to you to be a part of the Rebirth compilation and DSVAudio’s charitable efforts to raise awareness on mental health issues in the industry?
To me it’s a great honour. This project means supporting those who may not be fortunate enough to help themselves. I’ve been in that position many times, so it’s lovely to be able to feel like I’m helping out!
What was it like collaborating with Case Closed and NJ on your new track “Wounded”?
Collaborating with Case Closed and NJ was a pleasure although it was quite hectic! We managed to pull off something super special and super unique to our sound.
How does it feel to be a part of DSV Audio’s Rebirth Compilation with such a positive charitable message?
Being a part of Rebirth means a lot, honestly. Being someone who deals with mental health on a daily basis, it’s really nice seeing the music industry take steps to start accepting mental health as a serious issue. DSV is ahead of the curve and stepped up big time. It’s such an honour to be a part of such a meaningful project!
We really like the combination of the vocals and heavy production in your new track ‘Take You Higher’. How do you hope your fanbase receives this track?
I had a really great time producing ‘Take You Higher’ and the track came together really naturally once I started working on it. I hope my fans enjoy the combination of a lighter vocal with a heavier production and keep headbanging to this one.
What do youlike most about working with the DSV Audio team?
DSV Audio is one of my favorite labels to work with because of their consistency and ability to stay true to my vision as an artist. I’m really proud to be a part of the Rebirth compilation because it has such a good cause behind it and a ton of great music from the other artists!
