Falling in love with EDM production
It was almost 4 years ago in India, when I first started learning to write melodies and drum loops. I had downloaded a trial version of Ableton Live, top of the line, modern electronic music production software. At least in little ways, I think I’ve worked on my music each day since I got into my first groove in India. Many times, there isn’t always a computer to write my thoughts down. However, I am almost thinking of some melody or baseline. I also have a deep passion for EDM; I am always listening actively to the music that is around me. Some days I would spend 16 hours in front of the computer making a track, including this one I made in Kathmandu on my 26th birthday (back when I first start producing, this track is over 3 years old!
Electronic Synthesis Techniques
I got into making electronic music because I enjoy the avant-garde nature of modern synthesis and the revolution that is taking place in the music industry as technology evolves. My music evolves with the technology 🙂
Creating modern electronic music with the best tool.
The best example of why Ableton is the top of the line for production is the release of Ableton Live 10 earlier this year. This release drastically changed my production process, as well as added a bunch of new tools to my belt for mixing audio and sound design. It also tremendously increased my efficiency. I also use various virtual synthesizers and analog modeled software to achieve a professional from my computer including Zebra 2, Serum, Sylenth1, Waves plugins, the Izotope Mixing Suite, and the newly acquired Spire. I also use Splice‘s sample libraries for a lot of drum samples and most of my vocals. I am hoping to upgrade to a new computer relatively soon though and start working with more vocalists ASAP! 😀

3 Finished Albums and counting
I have produced 3 quality albums now that I consider to be good pieces of artwork. I’ve written a lot of singles in between the albums as well and I’m really just trying to continually improve my ability to produce and mix sound, while releasing a decent amount of what I am making. However, my released music is small fraction of what I make; most of the sound design and mixing that I do gets thrown away. Recently I reformatted my computer so all of the sounds from EROS and before are now lost to time. So remember that all of my tracks are pretty highly curated and that I have spent a lot of time browsing through samples to find the ones that resonate.
Other Artists Inspire Me
Modern artists constantly uplift me and inspire me; especially underground artists that are busy making their own sound and their own styles of music. Of the Trees, ToadFace, and G Jones are just a few examples of this kind of unique individuality represented in their music. All three have brand spanking new albums coming out right now, so check em out. Its almost as if they’ve put their personalities into their music.
I very recently released 2 singles
And I am really happy with them. Turn the volume up and play with a subwoofer! They are house/dubstep hybrids, so I hope you are too concerned with genre. My sounds continue to evolve and so does my mixing knowledge and ability to create cool shit! But my mixing ability has drastically improved over the years, which truly makes the difference you can hear as my ability to make modern electronic music has progressed.
I now have a complete virtual studio and pretty much all of the mixing tools that I need for a professional sound!
Check out the latest modern electronic music track that I have mixed and mastered with Izotope plugins:
the E.T. – Blaster [Bass-House]
the E.T. – Current – [Dubstep]
Onward with More Art!
I am learning Adobe Illustrator and will get into after-effects to make music videos. ‘the E.T.’ is on a mission to express some art! This is only the beginning! I have a lot of visuals coming out with my next album, EROS, Part 2, and plan on doing a lot more with my visuals as I get better the modern software used to make them.
Make sure you subscribe to ‘the E.T.’ on Youtube!
Youtube is where I update all of my visuals, so make sure you subscribe to stay updated!
