How did you first get into music production?
When I was younger, I always listened to Michael Jackson, Hardwell, and Vato Gonzalez. I knew that I wanted to be a DJ from a young age. I bought my first DJ set and played around with it for a few years until I decided to sell my DJ set in order to buy a MacBook with Logic Pro. I was making music almost everyday, getting better and better. Then I came across the "Herman Brood Academie" where people like Martin Garrix and Julian Jordan went to study music. I got accepted and thus followed three years of study. Things really started to happen after starting school there!
I've been a fan of yours ever since hearing "Lush" on Armada Zouk back in 2017. Seeing your sound grow and evolve from future house to big room and now to your signature bass house style has been an absolute treat. Can you walk us through your growth as a producer over the years to where it has gotten today?
Tell us more about your track with Dastic, "Find You" which is out now on Future House Music!
Dastic said he really liked my music and asked me if I wanted to do a project with him. I liked his stuff as well so I instantly said yes. I sent him a cool drop idea that he really liked, so I sent over the project files and Dastic started working it out. We sent the project back and forth a few more times until we had the final result that you hear today!
How do you see your sound evolving in the future?
I think you need to a few samples like claps, kicks, effects, and small fills that you always use in other tracks so that people instantly recognize it's a Tommy Jayden track. Then I try to use new sounds in the drop of every track to keep your tracks refreshing!
What's coming next for you in the second half of 2019? What can we all get excited for?
Lot's of new music is coming and some really cool ADE shows as well!
