Alterum


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


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


I'm a producer and dj from Santa Cruz, California but I'm currently going to college in Spokane. I make a mixture of future bass and trap with a dark science fiction vibe to it. My one song currently on soundcloud is Tempest:

I've only been producing for around a year now but it's something I kind of obsess over at this point. I love the fact that I can create music by myself on my computer and make it close to exactly how I want to hear it.


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


I started listening to electronic music my junior year of high school when my friend took me to see Major Lazer, What So Not and RL Grime. I fell in love with it and started going to any show and festival I could see after that. Those are still some of my biggest influences but I've grown to love Ekali, Krane, Rustie and Flume as well. In pretty much every song I make I'm influenced by pretty much all of these artists.


What´s new right now?


I have a few small shows coming up in Spokane at The Pin!, I'm really excited 5quar3 live at the Pin! We have a really sick lineup of a bunch of friends that all throw down. I'm also planning to release another song soon called Drain with a friend of mine, and I hope to release a lot more songs in 2018 now that I have a little bit more of a relaxed schedule this semester in college.

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


I still haven't really overcome this but my work process is super slow, I tend to take my time with my music and make sure it's exactly what I want before I feel like I can release it. In the future I really hope to speed up my process so that I can release music on at least a bimonthly schedule.
