Lockjaw


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


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


What's up! I'm Lockjaw, I am an EDM DJ and Producer from Central Connecticut! I've been producing and DJing for about 5 years now, and have been into the electronic music scene since 2010! I have produced everything from Dubstep, to Trap, Hybrid, Rap Beats, Riddim, and much more. My music encompasses a wide range of genres, and you never really know what to expect next. But one thing's for sure, you do not want to miss what's coming! Check it out for yourself! https://soundcloud.com/djlockjaw


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


When I first started producing, my influences included, Skrillex, Borgore, Boltcutter, Phutureprimitive, Emalkay, Flux Pavilion, and Doctor P. They were the producers that got me into Dubstep and Electronic music back in 2010 – 2011. When I first heard Skrillex's "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites", I knew that it was going to become an instant favorite! Nowadays some of my biggest inspirations are, Tynan, SAYMYNAME, Cherney, Infekt, Bommer, Riot Ten, and Dion Timmer. My influences and favorites have definitely changed over the years, but so has the scene and the sound of this music! No matter how it changes, my original favorites will still have a special place in my heart.


What´s new right now?


Right now I'm working on booking more shows back home for the summer, and planning some new releases very soon on Spotify! I have a lot in the works for 2018! I'm extremely excited for the road ahead and where the scene may take me. I sure as hell am enjoying the ride!

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 in music production was not taking the time to produce every single day, because that is really how you get better at anything! Practice Practice Practice everyday!

Do you have good promotion tips for other musicians?


I promote myself on as many social media platforms as possible! Stay humble! But don't be afraid to ask people to give your track a listen! I think Snapchat is my favorite way of posting clips of new music and projects in the works!

How do you personally discover new music?


I discover new music to listen to and to DJ with on SoundCloud and YouTube generally. I go to my favorite DJ's SoundCloud page and look at their reposts or likes. Even their tracks that I haven't heard yet. Sometimes I find new music on Spotify, but generally it's easier to find new music while searching on SoundCloud or YouTube music channels.

Once you discovered new music, do you tell others about the new music/artist you discovered? If yes, how exactly?


“I'm always posting what I like on my Snapchat story, and I'm always telling my friends about new tracks that I like!

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

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


Sometimes the best way to approach a track is to say to yourself "This track sounds good just the way it is!" Sometimes I find myself trying to add unnecessary layers to tracks when I should just be focusing on the mix down. Also, another way that I finish tracks quickly is to just sit down, and focus on one track at a time rather than 10 unfinished projects. It really helps you get the work done towards a track that you can get out there ASAP!
