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


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


My name is erbdout and I make some things. I've been a practicing DJ since 2008 and moving into original production in 2014. I've taken breaks from both over the years but they are still the first loves.


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


My taate changed drastically after I became interested in production around 2014. I used to DJ french sounding house music in my bedroom, rap and edm at parties, and top 40 and specialty music for weddings and events of all sorts.

When I dipped into production some weird dark ambient stuff came out, just in time to be included in a little ongoing video game project between a lifelong friend and I called, "Relax".

We keep saying we are going to finish it someday but between you and I, that sound is impossible to recreate and is most likely tied to the strange headspace I was in during that that time.


What´s new right now?


No solid projects on the horizon. I'm always in the studio cutting samples or putting together small beats. Yall can follow me on the socials to see any new projects.

How do you personally discover new music?


Nothing will ever top Soundcloud for me. It is still the best place for finding absolute musical gems. Being DJ minded as I was in the beginning, I used to dig for music on soundcloud like it was a day job.

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


It's been helpful for me to try and learn something new everyday besides the usual practice. Instead of wondering passively how a certain effect or sound was achieved, really focus on breaking down the process of it. You'll learn many related techniques and tricks that you might not have discovered otherwise.
