Wynton talks about his music journey
We are sharing our recent interview with music artist Wynton.
Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Wynton : Hey, I’m Wynton! I’m from Houston TX and I like to make music. My album is through-and-through experimental phatstep and I’m stoked to share it. I hope people dig it, I won’t lie. I like it and I hope other people do too.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Wynton : My big brother. A long, long time ago he introduced me to a program called eJay. It was a simple drag and drop music maker, but I was hooked. You couldn’t even change the bpm. Hip Hop eJay was the one I used, there were dance and techno ones too. Eventually, I found Fruity Loops and decided to make that my DAW of choice.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release “This Love Is Smooth But Trippy”?
Wynton : There are a lot of different sounds I experimented with. I love low-pitched snares. I love a huge sounding kick. I love a nice fat synth. I like to use pingpong delay in stereo to wrap the music around your head and make it feel three dimensional.
Twist Online : Any particular track from the album that’s your favorite?
Wynton : Dance With You. It’s got vocals! It’s one of the trippier songs, when the pre-chorus hits, it drops and hits you square in the face with a fat bass drum that fades left to right around you. Then, when the bass drops, the synth line hits with a delay on it, man I get excited just thinking about it! Throw it down!
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Wynton : So far, so good! Nikki Minaj hit up my Instagram the other day wanting to collab with me. Just kidding. One of the responses I got was ‘woah, that’s trippy.’ I knew the guy. I was pleased.
Twist Online : What’s the best part of being a music artist?
Wynton : Being able to turn nothing into something, and then something into something cool. You can do anything you want to sonically, there’s no rules. You can get as experimental as your brain will allow as an art form.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Wynton : I want to make vocals my focus. I’ve been practicing my vocal fry and screams. I’ve got a sick falsetto. I can’t wait to record that M. Shadows type stuff, gritty good stuff.
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
Wynton : Yes. I’ve got 3 or 4 songs I’m working on for the next album that is shaping up to be released next summer. Look for it June 30th, 2020.
