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


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


Hi, I am mPulse, a 23 years old self-taught EDM-producer from Hanover in Germany.
I am mostly known for my Chillstep and Dubstep remixes (https://soundcloud.com/m-pulse/lovejet-all-i-need-remix) and originals (https://soundcloud.com/m-pulse/atlas), but I also produce various other EDM genres like Future Bass (https://soundcloud.com/m-pulse/changes-remix) (https://soundcloud.com/m-pulse/relax), DnB, Trap, Trip Hop and Techno.
My music relies on heavy bass, Dubstep rythms and melancholic melodies, which are often played on classical instruments like piano or violin.
Because of this combination of calm melancholic melodies with 'aggressive' beats and sounds, my music is well suited for gaming, studying and relaxing.


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


When I was 8 years old I wanted to learn how to play the piano. My parents supported me by organizing classical piano lessons for me. This was my first introduction to playing an instrument and also to creating music instead of just listening. Over the next years I always had troubles with learning how to read sheet music, instead I learned how to play the piano by listening, memorizing and improvising.
While the fact I can't read sheet music was very frustrating back then, now I think of it being the reason why I stopped taking lessons and started to write music myself. My early introduction to piano music is also the reason why my tracks always include a piano and why this is probably my biggest influence.
While growing up I listened to a lot of Hip Hop and Rap, which is why when I started producing music in 2010 I focused on producing beats. Over the years my taste in music shifted more and more to electronic music. At first listening to a lot of House, Electro and Techno later moving on to Dubstep, Chillstep, DnB and today Future Bass, Trap and Trip Hop. I also like to listen to classical music and movie/game soundtracks.
With my change in music taste, I also started producing the genres I listened to.
In general, the music I listen to influences my own music a lot. By producing so many different genres I was able to develop and maintain a unique style, that sounds different from the mainstream.


What´s new right now?

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


For me, improving my production skills has different steps I follow losely in this order:

1: Set a specific goal, for example improving your mixing and mastering skills. The more specific your goal the better.
2: Listen to music that in your opinion has achieved your specific goal. In this example listening to music where you like the way it sounds. Use this as reference.
3: Experiment with the knowledge you already have. What can you achieve by becoming better at what you can already do? In this example, try to get your mix to sound similar to the reference tracks. Don't be disappointed when you seem to fail, just keep on experimenting. In my opinion this is important to developing your own style.
4: Learn what you can't figure out by yourself by watching or reading tutorials. Compare the things you learned by exmperimenting with what others say is the right way to do it.
5: Continue to experiment with your new knowledge and see how far it gets you. I can't say this often enough, in my opinion experimenting a lot is the best way to improve yourself without sounding like everyone else.

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


I think this only happens when you run out of ideas while producing. I overcome this by pausing the current project and starting something new without worrying too much. Don't be angry at yourself if you can't finish a track, this is normal and happens to everyone.
Wait a day or two and then come back to your old project. Still don't have any new ideas? That might be a sign that the track is already mostly finished and only needs fine-tuning. You can ask someone else to listen to the current state of your track and give you feedback.
If none of that helps it could mean that the project is dead. This is normal too. Out of approximately 500 projects I started, I finished only about 100.
