Oct 20, 2020
Producer duo Astin Music are the winners of the Breathe Carolina Splice pack contest and we wanted to ask them a few questions about their winning track, their goals and what they are like as an artist. Find the interview below!
What can you tell us about this track?
"This track was created in 2 days after we stumbled upon this contest and saw that the deadline was in 50 hours. We were in a hurry, so we decided to pause everything in life and focus on this track only. We tried to fit in as many samples from the pack as possible since we thought that would increase our chances of winning. We aimed for the old school Spinnin' Records style type of track. This was our first time creating a festival/electro house track."
Why did you choose this style?
"We chose this style because we have never tried it before. We also like to listen to tracks in this style and thought it could be a good choice for the competition since it sounds kind of like Spinnin'."
What makes you unique as an artist?
"We are a duo from Kazakhstan, we are both 17 and we have only just started exploring the industry. We started working in FL Studio back in 2015 as a hobby, but 4 years later we decided to partner up and work in a studio. We like to think of ourselves as different from a typical producer duo since we try doing music in all genres. We do not tend to focus on one genre and stick with it for a long time, instead we try to explore every genre there is and never stick with one in order to keep our creativity flowing. We started with trap, then moved to bass house, then synthwave, hip-hop, UK bass, drum n' bass and etc. Currently, we are doing house music again."
What do you like most about the Talent Pool?
"We absolutely love the fact that Talent Pool allows starting producers to get connected, recognized and grow as artists. You do not have to already have a big fanbase and connections in order to get recognition here. If your music is good, you will grow no matter what here in Talent Pool. That is what matters."
What is your goal with your music?
"We have two big goals on our minds right now. Firstly, we obviously want to grow and become successful professional producers. After achieving that goal, we want to change the EDM industry in our home country since currently it is pretty bad. This is only a start for us and we are ready to work harder and smarter in order to achieve both of those goals."
We surely hope that Astin Music will develop as a duo and eventually change the EDM scene in their home country! Have you become curious what the 'Make My Song Pop' sample pack by Breathe Carolina contains? Check out what's inside here!
