LAPUTA


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


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


My name is LAPUTA and I have been involved in producing Electronic music for the past 15 years. It was only since the back end of 2015 I took the plunge into becoming a solo artist, as the majority of my time being involved within music was spent being part of other projects. I currently have been releasing the majority of my music with a relatively new label 'Ninety9lives' and I'm also in the process of my second EP collaborating with Singer/Songwriter 'Ryan Konline'.


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


My main influences have changed quite a lot. Going back about 8 years, I would tell you they are Avicci, Deadmau5, Calvin Harris and David Guetta. But over the years as the EDM scene was evolving, So was I as an artist and a musician. Now, the majority of my influences are from artists I know personally and artists I discover whilst playing video games. It's quite ironic really, at one point I was inspired by the headlining acts of that time who I didn't know or had never met, to now being inspired and heavily influenced by the more 'up and coming' artists I talk to every other day.


What´s new right now?


I've just released my first ever EP with label Ninety9lives titled 'Reminisce' which you can grab here: http://99l.tv/EPReminiscePM
and its free to download! Also you can check me out on twitter: @OfficialLaputa and Instagram: @laputaofficial

I also have an up and coming release soon with Ninety9lives so make sure to watch out for that when it drops!

Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?


I would honestly have to say Avicci. Although his music doesn't influence me as much anymore, He also produces on Fl Studio and we are the same age haha.

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?


My biggest mistake was depending to much on others to get things done. My advice to people starting out is to learn as much you can to market yourself whether that's from designing your own single art to creating the visualizers for your tracks to upload to the web.

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

How do you personally discover new music?

[gravityforms action=”conditional” merge_tag=”” condition=”is” value=”Yes”]

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


There are a lot of mixing tutorials on the web and in magazines. Educate yourself about that side of things as much as you can. music production isn't all about a catchy melody.

[gravityforms action=”conditional” merge_tag=”Yes” condition=”is” value=”Yes”]
What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


Do not distract yourself with other music when in the creative process. This might sound silly when you are lacking inspiration but what you will find is that you become inspired to produce a new track in a different style completely disregarding the half completed track. DO NOT START ANOTHER PROJECT UNTIL THE TRACK IS COMPLETE!!
