LoDran


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


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


My name is LoDran, I'm an 22 years old and I am an electronic music producer & DJ from hamburg.
I just finisched my audio engineering diploma and now I'm doing my bachelor in audio production.

I started self educating in music production about 7 years ago which is also a reason why I started uploading videos on youtube.
I liked learning different stuff from youtube tutorials out there, so I started my own "tutorials" ('Melbourne Bounce' Drops) about 3 years ago which contained multiple drops of more or less known melbourne bounce tracks. My main intention was to show how this kind of music is produced, so I included the project files for the newer episodes, but I also want to show how unimaginative somekind of music is produced now adays.
I want to open other peoples minds for music and how importent creativity in music is.


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


It took a really long time till I found my place in all these EDM music genres out there. Everything started with melbourne bounce for me around 2014, and before this I experimented with different styles and genres. As melbourne bounce got more and more unimportend in the EDM-scene, I moved across diffrent sytles, like Glitch Hop, Hardstyle and Psytrance. Psytrance is the genre which inspired me the most and wich caught my heart till now.
I'm still diving further into this unique genre and leanring something new every day, but there wound be no major genre jumps anymore.
In the future my youtube channel will contain diffrent tutorials (more info below), DJ Sets and maybe a few more episodes of 'Melbourne Bounce' Drops also with other genres, etc.


What´s new right now?


I am currently working on different psytrance releases, DJ sets for youtube etc. and some new "real" music production and DJ tutorials. These tutorials will be recorded in german, as there are nearly no other quality tutorials in german on youtube.
As my current youtube community is speaking english, I'll add english subtitles, which will take much more work and time. But It is importent to me that I can reach as much people with these videos as I can, so that others also find their way to the music production as I have found it.
If anybody out there likes what I do and got inspired to feel music in a different way or even starts producing, these videos did their job.

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


If you are new to production you could start analysing tracks you like and dig into them. How is it build up? How does it work? What makes it special?
After you learned the basics of the music you are digging into, you should try to recreating a full tracks you like, like I did in my 'Melbourne Bounce' Drops videos, but its important to recreate the whole track not one part of it. This method doesn't work for everyone, but it helped me a lot.
But most important: nerver give up!
