Colin (aka SouthPaw) here
I am an aspiring full-time producer of all things audio.
This electronica project is a hobby, serving as both practicing tool
and outlet for my creativity. Ever since the early years of 2000-2004
i've had a passion for primarily electronic genres of music,
-------- chronology of musical influence --------
it began with the swell of (what no one can agree to in terms of genré
definition ) Artists being produced out of Manuel Reuter's "Zooland Records" and
their close musical cousins ( Special D, Alice deejay, Master Blaster ) and so on.
Then a few years passed before i started discovering Funky House, and listening to
a lot of artists found at Ministry of Sound. It wasn't until i developed a stronger
interest in production that i was introduced to the broader Electro music spectrum,
drawing upon genres like italodisco, early electro and more, i listened a lot to french
electro, (justice, daft punk, Kavinsky etc) not to mention electro house. And suddenly i'd
found a meld of the Funky House i had such a nostalgia and reverence for, and hard
hitting + distorted electro sounds. Artists providing this interesting fusion were
Deadmau5, Wolfgang Gartner among other.. so thats where i'm at now.. basically
oh yeah, i'm trying to catch up with the musical Zeitgeist, that has shifted while
i wasn't paying attention. replacing oddities like ke$ha and the very loud and proud electro basses
with drops and wobble sounds from dubstep..
