Entel Interview:

Tell us about “Drifting”. How did you come up with this idea for this song?

Drifting is the second song off my upcoming EP Leaving My Mind. This EP is my response to some personal life struggles I have had over the last few months. All 3 song titles follow a theme of how I have felt in regards to the world around me, and wanting to break free from my mental barriers. Drifting got its name because at the time I wrote it, I felt like I was just coasting through life without any sense of direction. This song was the out come of those feelings so the name felt fitting :).


What Inspired you to make this?

A burning desire to finally follow what I wanted artistically, and release music that was a representation of who I am. More importantly, music that I believed in and loved. I kept feeling this pressure to try and write songs that I thought other people would like, and would help me “break” as an artist. I quickly realized I had it all wrong. Through that process Leaving My Mind was born, as well as a few other singles that I am very excited to release this next year.


How did you begin producing electronic dance music?

It all started with the last band I was apart of in high school. We were just a couple of dudes being guys making a lot of noise in my buddies moms basement. As we progressed, we wanted to play shows but promoters kept asking us for recordings to hear how we sounded. We didn’t have any, so we found a way to record some demos in the basement. I immediately fell in love with the recording and producing process. This eventually led to me getting a copy of Ableton, and starting to produce and record on my own. Its been a beautiful journey that I have loved every second of.


Do you have a favorite VST plugin or instrument to use?

Sylenth and Spire are my two favorite VSTs. Also, I highly recommend the free distortion plug in Camel Crusher. Its a staple in how I process a lot of my synths and sounds.


What can we expect from you next year?

Lots of new music :). I have lots of music ready to be released that I’ve worked on over the last few months, now its time to let the world hear it!


Entel says his main message is:

“Doing my part to spread positive vibes through music <3.”
