Lowkey


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


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


Recently launched as Lowkey at the beginning of this year, I'm a bass house producer hailing from West Yorkshire! I've been producing under different aliases for roughly 5 years now since I first got Reason 6 for my 18th! My tastes have shifted a little as the years have gone by but I feel they have also diversified greatly. I am very excited for the future of Lowkey since I have a neat collection of tunes ready to release and I've got even more in the works!

I particularly love remixing tunes I used rinse whilst growing up; it often brings back good memories and I seem to be able to draw a lot of inspiration helps everything come together nice and smoothly. Most of my originals I produce by myself because I often feel I can put my best in to a tune that way and I always like to produce a tune so it will make me want to jump out my seat and go nuts! I do have on a few colabs with my friends TVU and BassJacked, one of which has already been released. In addition to my tunes I also like to regularly post 30 minute podcasts to showcase what I'm listening to at present, I have 3 of my own and a guestmix out on Soundcloud already!


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


I was originally taken by bass music when I discovered the harsh and heavy sounds of dubstep by artists such as Skrillex, Datsik, Excision, etc. As I started uni in Liverpool my taste began to shift towards the 4×4 beats during the sudden rise of deep house. After a long exposure to the sound of commercial house through experiencing the Liverpool nightlife and then hearing artists like Habstrakt and Jauz switching to a similar kind of sound, I had my own ideas which I wanted to get out there. After experimenting with future house sounds I eventually learned how to get that nice fusion between dubstep and house which has been the basis for all the tunes I've been producing ever since.

I often tend to go for nice catchy melodies driven by heavy hitting baselines underneath. I'd say my biggest influences are from artists like Joyryde, Habstrakt, Moksi, etc. who I feel have absolutely nail the sound I've been after for a while now. I also draw a lot of inspiration from the UK Bassline / Garage scene because of the nice catchy hook lines and the vocals which often come with it. Most my other influences come from what I hear around me, whether its on the radio at work or whether its currently being rinsed by my peers, it all plays its part when I'm building myself a track!


What´s new right now?


My most recent and most popular release so far has been my remix of the most overplayed pop tune "Havana" by Camila Cabello, which has already seen support from some leading artists in the scene! After hearing the original played constantly on the radio and by my flatmates it was stuck in my head and was going nowhere! Therefore it was only right for me to find the stems and have a go making my own take on it. I do also have a neat collection of unreleased content! I've nice amount of remixes at the ready and I'm planning a bunch of releases with a label called Le Temple Du Son, who have already shown me lot of strong support.

In terms of touring, I don't have any gigs planned of yet unfortunately since I'm mainly focusing on my productions currently. I do however release a regular mix series "At Your Service" to showcase my most recent influences and my skills behind the decks.
