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


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


Hi, My name is Jim and I go by the name BMKNS.

I'm a 16 year old drum & bass producer from the Netherlands.
I started producing when I was around 13/14 years old, but I have been producing drum&bass (mainly liquid dnb) for about 4 to 5 months. I also DJ but I love producing more. My goal in the future is to become a famous drum&bass DJ/producer or own a big record label.

The software I started using was FL Studio 11 but after a year of learning FL Studio I decided to switch over to Ableton Live 9 and I'm really happy about because it works a lot better for me. The plugins I use the most are Serum,Massive and SAUSAGE FATTENER!!

I put as much time as I have into music but when I'm not producing or dj'ing I'm probably riding or working on my mountainbike.

If this is the first time that you are reading anything about me and are curious about my music. Here are 3 of my best tracks and if you like liquid dnb, I'm sure you are going to like it.

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


My influences change a lot because I listen to so many artists. My music taste changes a lot because most of the time when I find a new genre or artist that I really like, I then really want to try to make music that sounds really similar to that genre or artist.

When I started producing and dj'ing I really wanted to be like DJ BL3ND but than a few years later I found Marsmello and Slushi on soundcloud and I really wanted to be like them. I still like their music and I sometimes I still try to make future bass like them but when I found out about drum&bass that changed the world for me. When I started listening to drum&bass I immediately felt a connection with the genre. When I'm producing drum&bass I just know what to do and what would fit perfectly in my track and that is something I have never had when I was producing future bass or any other genre.

Producing drum&bass just feels natural for me and that is why I love it.


What´s new right now?


I'm working on so many projects that it is hard for me to just focus on one project and finish it. You should really follow me on soundcloud because a lot more is coming in the upcoming months.

I just released a new track on the 5th of december it is this one be sure to check it out : https://soundcloud.com/bmkns/outside

I hope you enjoyed reading this interview

Cheers!!
