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

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

Hey everybody !
My name is Shaked Alon , known as SHAKED.
I live in Israel , celebrated 21 two weeks ago , have two big sisters and i live in my parents house.
Those days I serve in the Israeli army. (In Israel you have to serve after you finish school, boys and girls as well) And that's why I don't get to see home too much. But when I come back home on weekends , I have to open my studio and produce music.

Back on 2010 , as a Call of Duty nerd (Shooting game) , I really wanted to make videos about my playing skills. I started to learn video editing , and at some point i had to edit the shooting sounds. so i started to search music programs and i found "Cubase". (which i still use these days). Searched tutorials on Youtube, and then found a tutorial about producing music, which i didn't even aim to this kind of tutorial. Somehow , i found myself producing music and built my studio in my bedroom.

I've gone through a lot this way to the success I'm having today, so much experiences , especially as a kid at school.
And thats it , It was briefly about myself.

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

Today i produce Trap and Future Bass , but a lot of people don't know that till 2015 I produced Psytrance , which is a subgenre of Trance music characterized by arrangements of synthetic rhythms and layered melodies created by high tempo riffs.
This genre is the leading music type in the Israeli dancefloors. But then i got exposed to Trap and the Future Bass music , and fall in love immediately.
The track which made me do the change in the genre i produce , is "DISKORD – Go Hard".
Do you know this feeling when you hear a song and it reminds you good times? So this is the perfect example for me.
It literally made me change my taste in music.
But i did more homework about the first Trap songs i listened:
Iggy Azalea Ft. Rita Ora – Black Widow (Prismo Remix) – I Remember myself listen to the track in my car and don't understand how the hell Zach (Prismo) made those basses so big and kicking. Still use this song as references to my tracks.
Jarvis – Close My Eyes (Ray Volpe Remix)
Gioni – Trigger
Marshvll – Space.

Just to be clear , i was literally hating EDM , never had this genre in my playlists , the only time i heard this music was just in parties…
But when i started listening to Trap, in 2015 , something changed.

I started producing Trap , but after my remix to Rockabye which hit over 35 million views on Youtube , i realized that i enjoy even more to produce Future Bass. I really like the exciting chords. you can hear it in my tracks. So today i am focusing on Future Bass.

What´s new right now?

Like i mentioned before , those days I serve in the Israeli army so i cant accept live gigs suggestions over the world because i don't have time to travel right now. When I get suggestions here is Israel I take them, ofcourse.
What's new right now? Well, Every weekend there is something new. i am cooking for you a new EP , which will include Trap and Future Bass.
In addition , i often upload remixes from contests i get participate, or remixes of famous music at that time.
Plus , I do lot's of ghost producing , to very famous bands and artists , but as it's called – "ghost producing" , unfortunately i can't tell you whom.
Don't forget to follow me on SoundCloud and I promise you won't miss anything new from me!
