Ladies and Gentleman, please welcome, mandu! We recommend to play his awesome music during reading for better perception!
Hello mandu! How would you introduce yourself?
﹥I’m Mandu, I was born in Thailand and raised in Australia and I’m an 18-year-old beat producer.
When did you start making music?
﹥Around 2014, when I was 15 I started playing around with garage band and FL studio on the mobile phone and around 2016 I got myself a midi keyboard and made some stuff on the computer.
What is your favourite instrument or a plugin to use while creating music?
﹥The Softpads located in the EXS24 plugin on Logic Pro is the goto for me. I’ve used it in every track for the last 2 years.
When you get started with creating new piece, what do you do at first?
﹥I usually just play around with the EQ, filter, reverb, and pitch to any sample that I’ve downloaded and then go from there.
Who had (or has) the greatest influence on your music?
﹥My main focus in my tracks is to bring out the atmosphere and let the reverb of the instruments/vocal samples stand out. XXYYXX, nuages and clams casino have had a great influence on that factor for me.
If you could create something with any artist, who would it be?
What is your greatest inspiration?
﹥To see everyday people create and share.
What gives you the greatest boost to keep on creating music?
﹥To try and always improve and to see how far I can go.
What thing about making music do you wish someone told you earlier?
﹥Stop producing and study for exams, then return to music when they’re done.
What part of making music do you cherish the most?
﹥To be able to sit down and create something emotional and sad when I’m feeling a bit down is something I cherish the most. Once I upload it, the people that comment and can actually relate to the title or something in the track is also very satisfying. Making music also cures my hangovers.
What do you prefer: sampling, simply playing music or maybe both sound fine?
﹥Both sound fine to me. I feel a sense of freedom when I don’t sample and probably prefer that a little more even though I sample quite a lot.
