Quintin Kelly Interview [EXCLUSIVE]
Tell us about “Solstice”. How did you come up with this idea for this song? What Inspired you to make this?
Well, we all know what the solstice is, and at the time i wrote this track, we here in South Africa, where moving into our cold season, hence the track title.
How did you begin producing electronic dance music?
I actually started 3 years ago, when one of my friends introduced me to Ableton. I was very intrigued by the software, and the potential to be able to express myself (musically). I spend a lot of time just playing around with the software, making sounds, and just having fun. But as im sure everyone knows, the more you play around with something, the better you get at it. So, pretty soon i was stringing together things to make beats, and from there things just progressed. I am now doing music full-time, and loving every moment of it.
Do you have a favorite VST plugin or instrument to use?
There are a lot of real nice vst instruments available, but if i had to choose one, i would have to say Serum. Such a versatile synth, and user friendly.
What can we expect from you next year?
Well, some more banging Tech tunes im sure. I spend lots of time in studio everyday, making music… some of the stuff no one ever hears,except my wife. 🙂 and some of the stuff i release to my digital label called Klank Records. Also in the coming months there will be a few remixes of tracks that i like, and a few original tracks. I just really enjoy making music, its a form of personal expression for me, and with out it life would be just grey.
