Artist Stories: twiice

This week we had an opportunity to catch up with twiice. We asked him to tell us about his release Infinity” and to show us how Splice fits into his production workflow.

What inspired you to share this track with the Splice community?

I share everything on Splice because I think its a great website for aspiring producers to gain insights, get samples and stems from top producers. Splice enables producers like myself, who does not necessarily want to spend a lot of money starting out, with the tools to create and get inspiration from. I hope my work will be used by other Splice users to make something really good!

Tell us about your approach to writing and production. Any favorite sample packs or plugins?

I think it is really important for any producers to have a MIDI keyboard, because it gives you inspiration to improvise melodies for instance. In fact, you can start a project either from a melody, bass line or chords. I often start a track with a melody I have in my head and built it up from there. However, always be prepared to record your melody on your phone if you get a melody out of the blue!

The KSHMR Sample Pack is one of my most used packs. I really love KSHMR’s work and it is great that Splice gives me the opportunity to use his samples. I work a lot with Vengeance sample pack too although it was weird but good sounding samples. Other times, I record my own samples. The clap on my next track “ping-pong” is a sample that I recorded. As for plugins I heavily use Sylenth1, Massive, Serum and Spire.

 You’re primarily a FL Studio user. What is it about FL Studio that makes it your DAW of choice?

When I started out composing music, I found a lot of users using FL Studio and I just went with it. It was difficult to learn at first, but I slowly got a hang of it. Tutorials on YouTube were a very useful learning tool as well.

How has Splice had an impact on your production process or workflow?

I discovered Splice through KSHMR when he shared his track “Secret”. I realized that Splice was such a wonderful website and was compelled to share my work with the Splice community, to let others creates new productions with my tracks. Splice is also very useful for me to see how a track was made. The ability to download each other’s projects and learn their production methods is a big deal for me.
What are your influences at the moment?

I have different musical taste and right now, I like producing house music. I am also leaning towards producing moombathon in the future.

You’ve had quite a few users in the community Splice the project file for “Infinity” – what do you hope that they’ll do with it?

I honestly really do not like this track, perhaps I’ve listened to it too much, but am hoping that the Splice community can find inspiration through it and make it better than what it already is!

Where do you think that you music is headed next? Anything that you’ll like to share with us?

I just hope that I won’t lose inspiration. I love making music, so I hope that one day I will be able to help aspiring producers as I am now. I will try to make better tracks, and I won’t stop sharing my work with the Splice community. I am very excited to release my next two tracks on Splice. Producing music is not difficult, all you need is hard work.

We’d like to thank twiice  for taking the time to chat with us and for offering us some insight into his process. We’re looking forward to hearing many more tracks from him! Be sure to keep an eye on his Splice profile at twiice for all of his latest projects and upcoming releases.
