RVMII


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


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


Yo what's up! My name is Andy I am 17 years old and I produce trap/bass music under the alias 'RVMII'. I'm from the US (Specifically from California) and I've been making music for about a year now. I'm super excited to do this little interview for you guys and I hope you enjoy it!


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


A lot of my influences have changed over the past year and I definitely have been changing the way I want to sound a lot as well. I got into making music because of a friend on Xbox named Higher. He was making dark trap beats and I thought that was cool so I wanted to hop on that trend. I have been a fan of electronic music for about 7 years now and the way I found it was through the Call of Duty community. I used to be a trickshotter/sniper as a kid and genres like dubstep and drum and bass were huge in this community because every montage had electronic music or underground rap over it so I'm no stranger to bass music! I started making electronic music when I saw Marshmello perform on the EDC Las Vegas live stream in 2016. After that I wanted to gain Marshmello's sound but later as I dove deeper into the scene I found Slander and Kayzo. I loved how brutal and hard their sound was. When I first heard their music, I Instantly fell in love with them and I started looking up to them. So I went from wanting to a cute, fun sound to a hard, scary, brutal sound HAHA!


What´s new right now?


I have only been producing for a year so I'm still learning the ropes in music production & sound design and I am still messing around with projects on my computer. I want to gain some experience with Ableton and Synths before I start working to gain the sound that I really want. The only problem with that is that my laptop is literal TRASH (I don't recommend using a $300-$400 Walmart Acer laptop to begin getting into music production lmao!) I'm working on getting some money for that I can buy all the equipment and software that I will need to start this journey with music. As far with new releases, I have a remix that I am planning to release around Christmas time. I have been working on this remix for a long time and I hope that everyone will enjoy it. Once I get everything I need expect me to pump out a lot of music! I'm hoping that this happens next year in 2018! I am also planning on attending to Icon Collective in the future. I have been keeping in touch with an administrator these past months and I already took a tour of the place and I absolutely loved it! I think I will be at Icon in about a year or two so I am also excited for that! I'm also planning on learning how to DJ in the near future, I just have to find a way to get some CDJs or something that I can start practicing on. I'm probably going to start practicing when I'm at Icon just to have some help from the others there. I think that pretty much sums up everything going on with me at the moment. I would appreciate it if all of you guys follow all my social media platforms and my soundcloud. I am going to start being more active on my social media and posting everything going on with me and things happening in the near future so follow me to keep up with me! I hope to see you guys there!

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?


I think the biggest mistakes I made when I started making music was hopping onto electronic music with the mindset that I'm going to be the best producer/dj ever and getting stressed because my songs don't sound like that big DJ's song. The tips I could give someone wanting to make music is have fun with it. Don't think of it as a competition, just have fun getting lost in the world of music. Try to be different than everyone else because that's how you really get noticed.

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


My biggest challenge is finding time to work on music. I am in my senior of high school and school really keeps me busy. I can never really find time to work on music. This also affects my work flow because when I work on music for some reason. I'm hoping I can overcome this as I finish my high school soccer season and as I graduate from high school.

We meet again in one year. What has changed?


This is a really tough question!

I'm hoping to have started making some original projects. The only reason I only make remixes as of right now is because my laptop is crappy and it can't even handle my projects. My current original projects make my CPU s**t itself! I'm hoping that I already have my Macbook Pro and some of my favorite VSTs so that I can work on music with no problems. I hope I have a lot of time to work on music and gain a better workflow because I would really love to start taking music to the next level. Hopefully I have gained somewhat of a fan base. I really want to share this journey with others and I want to work on branding myself.
