Vance


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


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


Hey whats up, my names Mark Montag and I go by the name Vance. I'm a producer from Toronto, Canada.


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


I have tons of influences ranging from musicians to athletes to family and friends. Speaking musically I would have to say Flume, Jauz, The Chainsmokers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lorde , J.Cole … the list goes one. These artist are very special to me because the style/drive/passion/creativity their music brings to people.

For sure, at first I was mainly making future house/bass house… then I heard of Louis the Child and Whethan, and I was blown away. The bounce in these tracks was so addicting that I stopped everything that i was doing and listed to every one of their songs one by one. Now I'm experimenting in that pop/hip-hop style. I fell like thats gonna blow up soon.


What´s new right now?


I am pounding out a lot of music so expect new stuff soon. For right now check out Yup Boy, its my first release under Vance. Also I'm in a group called Grim Deeper with Kneptunes and Chu99ie, the group is mainly bass house/dubstep.

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?


Not using multi band compression lol… that thing saves lives! Biggest tip, watch tutorials. You can never watch enough of those things, they will teach you the ropes and get you started.

Do you have good promotion tips for other musicians?


Try and get an account on every single social media platform. Even if you have like 200 followers all it takes is one person to hit retweet and it can snowball. Also post stuff haha… don't just have an empty account and complain you arn't getting plays or followers, people want to see volume.

How do you personally discover new music?


I love searching through Soundcloud seeing what people are reposting and liking. Also just talking about music, such as showing friends new artists and songs will bring out a whole new world for them and hopefully they will do the same!

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


Perseverance is so key! On the days you feel shitty and just want to bum around, hop on your computer and make a beat. For me some of my best tracks have come from forcing myself to make something. Truuust me
