VillanZ is a 20-year old Portuguese DJ who has had releases on Revealed Recordings and Quartzo Records. He's received support from some of the biggest names like Hardwell, W&W, Martin Garrix, Ummet Ozcan, and Blasterjaxx to name just a few. HIs latest track with STVW is out now!
How did you go about learning how to produce when you were first starting out?
I was listening to a pop song called “Alors on Danse” and I liked the track so much that I wanted to start making music. I literally searched for “How to make music” and found the FL Studio Demo. Since then, I've been producing for two years. I always focus on quality than quantity because I don't want to just release a lot of meaningless tracks. I do music for love.
What have you done to streamline your production process to stay organized and keep track of everything?
I'm actually very messy but I’ve found that working with stems makes it a lot easier to check what the track is missing and where you can add in more details to make the track pop.
Walk us through the creation of your latest track out on Revealed, “Lean Back.”
STVW and I actually finished this track in about five days. He had the original idea for it but was unhappy with the break so he sent it over to me. I worked on it and sent him the stems for what I had come up with. We did a final Skype session to go over the track one last time and then it was complete!
