gwEm


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


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


I'm gwEm, an electronic music producer and DJ from London. Mostly, I produce music on my Atari ST. An Atari ST is an old home computer from the late 1980s. I just like the way it sounds and find the limitations inspiring. Some people would call my music chiptune, but I prefer to see it as a kind of electro-punk. I like a good party and try to keep everything energetic and with a good sense of humour. Most of my tracks have shouty rapping and guitar in.

I also use my Ataris to DJ and play live.


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


My taste is totally changing over time. But I would still say my main influences are still The Prodigy and Judas Priest. I listen mostly to energetic music like Drum'n'Bass and Power Metal, but everything is an influence as long as it is good. At the moment I am listening to alot of underground hip-hop.


What´s new right now?


I am currently working on two major projects. Firstly is a new gwEm album, which will feature an industrial influences and also my Atari like usual. I have also started a 1970s style Krautrock project with collaborator Matt Nida.

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?


My biggest mistake happen early on. I wanted to completely push the aggressive side of my music, but actually its a much better idea to have a varied output.

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


My number 1 tip is to listen and use your ears. Its normally possible to figure everything out using those alone!

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


I make a rule to finish every track I start. Its no good to have alot of half finished tracks on your computer. If you don't like it you can change it so you do like it, or combine two or three tracks into one.

We meet again in one year. What has changed?


I expect to have finished the next gwEm EP, and to have played some gigs with my Krautrock side project. Furthermore, I anticipate dabbling in some lo-fi hip hop experiments. I think about music all the time and try to make things happen.
