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


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


Hi there. My name is Shea Wylie (A.K.A SHWYLiE) and I'm a 19-year old music producer from Northern Ireland. I've been interested in music creation and production for as long as I can remember. I started off doing simple audio and jingle production for a local volunteer radio station, around eleven years ago. Since then, I transitioned into making simple mashups of no more than 2 songs, then to more elaborate bootleg versions of songs. I still do bootlegs today but I like to focus a lot more on my own original stuff, since I can upload it anywhere without the risk of copyright infringement. A lot of the music I produce falls under the EDM umbrella, although I do stem out quite a bit when I try making something new! I'm always interested in creating new and unique sounds, and I'm quite the sucker for great chords.


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


A fair bit of my early production style stemmed from WiseBuddah (of all places) and the Top 40 artists at the time. I distinctly remember favouring the production style of Timbaland and Take That. I know they wouldn't be described as similar but I remember trying to get the mix of whatever I made to sound as clean as theirs did. I was also inspired from the Dj Hero video games, as they both had some of the most unique soundtracks that I have ever heard in a game. Nowadays, I take inspiration from a lot of different artists and places, including Mick Gordon (creator of the 2016 Doom Soundtrack), Pendulum/Knife Party, Zedd, Grey, as well as a few indie artists, many of which you can listen to from my liked tracks on SoundCloud. I am always looking for new music to listen to!


What´s new right now?


My latest (and most positively received) track was "Push, Fight, Feel" made in collaboration with @MarvidMusic. I have to say I had a lot of fun making this track and I hope to do more like it in the future! You can listen to that one, as well as many others of my own music for free on my SoundCloud (linked below). I am always working on something new, although I often have a lot of tracks that I don't release. Ever. So I have accumulated quite a few unused tracks on my PC. And I might upload them in the near future. Who knows? For now though, I am trying to go a little more towards orchestral and cinematic music production, as I'd love to get into the creation of game music. Someday hopefully. I'd also like to do a few more collaborations with some more artists too! Keep up to date with me using my social links below! I look forward to hear your opinions on my music! <3
