Babylonn


Read the Babylonn Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


My name is Babylonn and I'm a producer of electronic music. I don't stick to anything specific when making music I just kind of let my mood determine the outcome! I do have my favorites, mind you: House (All Forms), Trance (All Forms), Hip-Hop, Techno, Breakbeat, Hardcore, Synthwave, etc. My passion for music spans over the last 19 years of my life since the wee age of 6 when i first learned to play the piano. I've only been producing and mixing for 10 of those years, though. I have several outlets for my music where you can hear my musical journey through the years as I have progressed and learned. All my productions are self-taught and I have never taken a lesson in music production in my life besides a few tutorials on the internet. When the time comes for me to learn from outside sources I will be ready for sure! Anyways, thats what I do and I hope you enjoy my music as much as I enjoyed making it!


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


I originally only produced Trance for the first few years and Tiesto was one of my biggest influences hands down! I was inspired by the sounds of his early productions and many similar artists at the time such as: Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren, Prodigy, Scarf!, Faithless, etc. Sometime around 2011, I started focusing on expanding my genre horizons and started delving into more specific styles such as House, Breakbeat, and Drum & Bass and incorporating them into the Trance style I had already made for myself. Eventually I started fusing different genres together to see what I could come up with and the outcomes were ridiculous at times. Once I had managed to mix Trance with Drum & Bass to make this melodic breakdown type of style and it was crazy! Eventually I settled on 2 genres that have gone together since forever: House and Trance. I focused more on the Electro aspect of the House genre to make what I now call "Electrance". It has been my go-to style for the past couple years now and I plan on making it my own.


What´s new right now?


As of right now I'm taking a kind of pseudo break from releasing tracks to figure out some stuff in my personal life. I'm still producing but it's more experimenting with different sounds and making little 1 minute tracks to see where I really want my music to go. I have taken up more DJ gigs to try to better that part of my sound so I can get more of the technical jargen figured out so I can start playing more of my own tracks during my shows. I have a Facebook page where I'm updating my followers on the situation day by day so if anyone wants to check it out I'll have a link below for the page. I plan on starting a KickStarter page to help fund me getting some new equipment and so I can go farther with my music and my shows to bring you the best entertainment possible! This journey is just starting for me and I can't wait to see where it takes me!

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


I focused way too much on creating over-saturated sounds and it made this kind of blur of a track where everything melded together in this sort of organized chaos. I personally struggled with the copy/paste method and over used it in the beginning. My advice to anyone starting out is to make music on how you feel emotionally. The best music comes from the heart, from your own personal feelings and people can hear it if you do it right. Also, never make music just for the money, it never sounds good.

How do you personally discover new music?


I find that if you skim over any underground music site you will come across some hidden gems by just randomly going through the lists and I find some of the best music that way!

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?


When making a song you don't have to use fancy modulators and expensive mastering to get a good sound (I mean you can but you don't HAVE to) you just have to have the right balance and find that perfect pitch between your instruments. Having good speakers with a decent bass output also helps!

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


I personally have this problem myself and from experience I can tell you that the best way to finish a track is to imagine yourself in a place where the music would be the noise in the background. For example, if you are making a relaxing, chillout track, try to picture yourself on the beach with the sun shining and the waves crashing on the shore. If you use visual stimulation you can actually see where the song is headed in your mind and it has helped me finish many a track this way.
