My name is Maximus Base, a.k.a. Fractalist. I am a music producer from Cardiff, South Wales. I call myself the Fractalist, as my music is ever evolving and no track I create is ever the same; similar to the fractal patterns that can be found throughout nature. Although I predominantly make Drum and Bass/Future Jungle I do not tie myself down to a specific tempo/genre, as I feel this is limiting to the creative process.
The production software I use is Cubase, and I mix down in ProTools. All my Bass and Synth sounds are created from scratch and if I ever do use presets they are always modified and layered with various effects. My drums are all sample based, again layered with effects. I try to use as many live instrument samples in my work as I can. I play guitar, piano, didgeridoo and am learning the violin.
All I wish is for people to enjoy listening as much as I enjoy making these beats!
Thanks to all who have supported me thus far. Especially my housemates who have to put up with my noises, musical or otherwise.
Keep listening, keep loving.
Maximus, the Fractalist
