Read the Cw!tt Interview below and share it on social media.


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


My name is Christian Wittendorf and I'm from Granger, Indiana, United States. I'm 22 years old now and in my senior year of college at the United States Merchant Marine Academy where I plan to sail on commercial ships (think big container ships if that helps) after I graduate. I first got plugged into music through cello in middle school and high school which was a fantastic experience. I always had the desire to produce music but didn't know where to start. Then one of my orchestra buddies showed me FL Studio 4 years ago and I've been producing with it ever since.


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


Originally when I started out, old dubstep including Skrillex, Doctor P, Flux Pavilion, Rusko, and Bassnectar had an impact on my production. Now I produce all different styles within EDM with all sorts of influences such as Ekali, Diskord, Zomboy, and Space Laces. Even with such great artists though, I'd say the main influence for my music comes from two hometown producers that I constantly bounce ideas off with and even collab with, decent and girardot. It's neat to hear our different perspectives on music, how we produce, various VSTs and sounds we use, how we master tracks, and how we each have own imprint on music.


What´s new right now?


Currently I'm working on a new EP as well as entering remix contests. If you want to check out my work or what I've been up to, you can check out my soundcloud page and facebook for news and details. Links will be posted below.

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?


My challenge has been not to emulate but create. Especially with my EP in the works, I've tried to put my stamp into music where listeners would look more at it being my music instead of a genre. Finding out what I enjoy producing, what comes naturally to me, and being able to take it from my brain to FL Studio. With that, it's difficult because it's delving into undiscovered territory where I can't compare it to something to see if sounds the way I want it to.
