|If you have been to a club in the past couple of years, chances are you have heard one of Lazy Rich’s massive electro tracks destroying the dancefloor. The Lazy Rich signature sound is recognized from it’s aggressively crunchy basslines, huge chord stabs, and bouncy beats, to it’s funky synth lines, complex edits, and huge anthem-like build-ups. The UK native now resides in Vancouver BC and spends most of his time managing his record label Big Fish Recordings, writing new original tracks and remixes, playing shows all around the globe, and even writing his own software, Label Engine (www.label-engine.com), which designed to help labels simplify the daunting tasks of accounting, royalty payouts, and track promotion. We were lucky enough to catch up with Rich a midst his busy schedule for some tips and tricks for all the producers out there.|
The Lightning Round…
Favorite VST Instrument at the moment? Bit old now, but I’m really enjoying Sylenth for chords and adding some depth with background arps.
Favorite VST effect at the moment? Character which is included with the TC Powercore is a must for getting the most out of your bass synths.
Favorite Sound Library? Toby Emerson Essential FX of course, use it in EVERY track!
DAW of choice? Cuabse 5
Do you use any hardware? If so favorite gear? None, hardware scares me!
Producer you are digging at the moment? R3hab
How long have you been producing for? 5 years now
Biggest mistake beginners make? Not comparing their tracks using a variety of different speakers – just because it sounds ok in your studio doesn’t mean it’s going to work in a club.
