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

Hi, my name is Anand Dorian, I’m a 20 years old producer/dj from France. i love to create new sound and make music,

back when i was a kid (around 7 years old) just after a very blurred period; i started to learn about music theory, to be honest i wasn’t really good at it when i was young, but i was good to play instruments!
in parallel with my music theory lessons i was playing in a orchestral band i played xylphone, drums, and various percussions instruments for some years
When i got 13 years old i wanted to create and produce my own music, i was searching on internet/youtube how to make music with a computer, and then i discovered my first *DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) : Reason,
i didnt found it very simple the first time, some months later i was looking for a daw to produce my music in a more simple and intuitive way, and then i found Fl studio!
the thing i loved about Fl Studio was the pattern system that we can’t found on other daw
I fell in love, and thats where the whole story begins, hope you like my music! ?

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

Well my list of Influences is really big, i think i listened to a lot of music by before, but i also think i listened to 1% of all the music on this planet, i dont know if you got me, but of course i was always inspired by house, electro-pop music and electronic music in general,

back in time before i started to produce my own music on my computer i listened to a lot of musical band, but if i have to remenber of only one i would say Dire Straits,
the interesting part is where i started to produce my music on my computer and which track/music dj/producer inspired me enough at this period to take the step of creating my own music,

When i was 12-13 back in 2011 i listened music from Daft Punk, Laurent Wolf, Basshunter, Kaskade, David Guetta, Alesso, Axwell, SHM and Avicii, 2012 was the gold year for EDM, i discovered a lot of new artist at this period, 2012 was also the year of big edm hit, Hardwell – Spaceman, Swedish House Mafia – Don’t You Worry Child, Otto Knows – Million Voices , Knife Party – Internet Friends, Harlem Shake, Porter Robinson – Language , and so muchhhhh moreeeee ,
all thoses tracks and all thoses artists inspired me to create my owns music,

i also want to do a little wink to a friend from the shadow who inspired me a lot from his mystical and original melodie and vibe, M if you read this, you’re the man !

and yes my tastes changed over time, today i am inspired a lot from the sound of Hexagon, (Don Diablo imprint)

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

patience, focus, be honest to yourself, find your imperfection, and work on them to make them perfection, if you are not sure about a track, then the track is probably not too good, because when you are sure, you dont even ask yourself the question ?
just produce produce produce and produce,


[gravityforms action=”conditional” merge_tag=”Yes” condition=”is” value=”Yes”]
What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?

to me i think the best way to finish a track is to produce the “body” the “skeleton” of the track, the arrangement in first,
you can do that in 2 hours max,
you set where is the intro, where is the build up ,where is the drop ; break etc if you have no idea just take a cool track that you like for reference, put it in your DAW,
then put quickly the kick where you want it to be , be really fast when you still have your idea burning in your mind, put your clap, hit hat, melody, bass etc , shaker, downlifter , uplifter fx etc put EVERYTHING!,
do it in like 2 hours max and then you can take all the time you want to work in details after the arrangement finished,
and the track will always be finished because you set up every part by before, believe me

When you work like for 8 hours on a drop this can be good, but it can also become dangerous, because if you work too much you can perhaps forget your main first idea and how you wanted to maked sound your track at the beginning,
then you start to forgot where are all your different parts, where is your intro, where is your break etc, and then you dont really know what to do , what to add, and then you start to get bored and lazy,
you can work for 8 hours on your drop and even more if you want, but do it after you put all the idea/ arrangement of your track, and your track will be even better! simplicity is your friend just try this, hope i helped you ?
