Blog Update- 1

Personal

KLH Writing is and has always been a platform to connect ideas to their creation. It focuses on the media sphere and comments on those belonging in the public eye due to their art and/or talent. It has been my complete privilege to interview and write articles about those who I believe have tremendous talent and deserve to have their story written for thousands to see. I, however, cannot see and interview everyone that I wish to interview due to being only one individual; being understaffed.

In recent weeks, due to a staggering amount of work in which has been undertaken, both visible and behind the scenes, it has been made apparent that I will have to start looking for another writer to fill the ranks and increase content supply rates and decrease periods of content drought. I will create a post when the time has come for me to start looking.

Secondly, I would like to make it clear that contacting me to conduct an interview with you is now no longer applicable. I will contact you personally, either through your social media account or via email if I would like to conduct an interview with you. This has been due to many requests, some positive and some not so positive, and I do not have the time to respond to every request.

To connect with me and increase the odds that I will see and your work, communicate with me on my social media, listed on KLH Writing, and if I wish to conduct an interview, you will be contacted.

I like to remain as transparent as possible and will continue to do so. Please stay tuned to both my Twitter and my website to keep up to date with any news.

JVLES- A Producer with a Vision

Personalities

Disclaimer: Reader discretion is advised.

Jyle Fotheringham, known by his alias, JVLES, was recently interviewed in person due to his talent and vision to bring “Australia on the map”. JVLES and his group, SSX or Stix Shooters Xtreme, are rising quickly, with each member finding their own image and voice, while gathering an increasing number of fans who anticipate each new release of their work.

An example of Jyle’s incredible work was the creation of a “unique” styled beat. Jyle recently uploading a video on Twitter of him sampling sounds from Nickelodeon’s TV Series “iCarly“. As of writing this article, the video has amassed more than 353K views as well as 17K likes and 9.7 Retweets (Shares).

JVLES states that he always knew he wanted to be involved [in music] since he “was little listening to Eminem and rap”. In 2013 JVLES began “thinking creatively” using the software “iMPC” to create beats.

However, it wasn’t until JVLES started using the software FL Studio to create beats, that JVLES became heavily involved in the music scene. JVLES states that he currently produces 5-6 beats per week on average, in comparison to his creation of beats “whenever” in the past.

JVLES learnt how to use the software FL Studio through the study and examination of tutorials via YouTube. Most producers learn how to produce beats using this method as well.

When speaking about ambitions JVLES was adamant that he sought a “Kanye style of influence.” JVLES states that he does not want “fame or money,” he simply just wants his message to be heard. This message is “anybody can do it [music], spread positivity”.

Due to the mass of drug talk and negativity filling the music industry, JVLES wishes to combat this and instead “spread positivity”.

JVLES also states that he wishes to “make somebodies day, every day.” He wishes to start the “Australian wave” insinuating bringing forth Australian hip-hop to a more grand, international status.

However, no artists have ever gotten to where they have sought to be without hardship. JVLES is no different, however, he wishes to reinforce the point that he”never had it as hard as others” and that there was “none of that street s***”.

JVLES greatest hardship was instead, getting people to believe in him and what he does. “Nobody looks past the charts. People miss the underground and who’s in it,” JVLES states. JVLES also fought to gain his hip-hop personality and now is happier due to being comfortable with who he is.

JVLES believes these artists and producers believe will blow up in 2018 and have a successful year.

JVLES also states as a sidenote, “Shoutout to Lil Yawhh and Sife the Indigo“.

In relation to the group JVLES is a member of, SSX or Stix Shooters Xtreme, JVLES wished to touch on how he believes they will be successful due to their diverse skills and dedication to achieve their goals. He also strongly believes that each “have their own sound and are pushing their directions forward.”

The main members of SSX as JVLES states are “Majiin Blxxdy, BBY GOYARD and “6“”.

Goyard, JVLES believes, “does not get the respect he deserves.” JVLES furthers this by stating, “[Goyard] doesn’t care about plays. He will f*** with you if he likes you and your music.”

Those that are apart of SSX have a “collection of unique personalities/ sounds. You cannot box anyone [into a single sound style].” SSX can be checked out here.

JVLES “flexin”.

 

When asked why JVLES is different to other artists currently in the industry, he believes it is because he is “Australian” and can “take any sound and spin it with positivity.” JVLES wishes to bring forth positivity into the industry through his music.

Furthermore, JVLES also strongly believes that due to being able to both produce and sing as well as being versatile in everything he does, he is able to never stagnate; his sound will keep changing.

Coming up in the near future is JVLES mixtape “Blur” however he states that this name may change. He also stresses that he will create and upload music “more reguarly” and will continue to spread positivity. “Expect stuff you wouldn’t expect” JVLES finishes with in the interview process.

Personalities

Ryder Johnson, a self-taught producer from Jonesboro, Arkansas, who taught himself how to produce through YouTube tutorials and by learning the program of FL Studio 10, speaks today about his achievements and increasing success as well as it’s effect upon him.

Through the course of an interview Ryder focuses on his ambition and the effect that people liking his music has upon him as well as his desire to improve. Below is Ryder’s response to various questions;

What style music do you produce? How did you get started producing music?

“I try and produce everything, but mainly trap and EDM. I got FL Studio 10 when I was 12ish and literally had zero idea what I was doing but after I took time to learn a little music theory and how to even work FL. I kept getting better.”
FL Studio is a “complete software music production environment or Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). Representing more than 18 years of innovative developments it has everything you need in one package to compose, arrange, record, edit, mix and master professional quality music. FL Studio is now one of the world’s most popular DAWs and is used by the most creative artists” as stated on the front page.

What motivates you to produce? Do you have any words of encouragement for readers who may wish to produce but don’t know how or where to get started?

“I like the fact a lot of people are listening to my music, that has always pushed me to keep going. I recommend going on YouTube and watching tutorials lol, seems like that gets a lot of people started and the amount of joy you get when you see people liking a song you produced is one of the best feelings!”
Ryder’s produced song, Bankroll, in which artist “Jurp” raps on currently sits at 40k plays.

You state that you are an engineer as well? How did you get started?

“YouTube tutorials lol, that all I can say about that.”

A lot of producers teach themselves how to produce music. It is becoming increasingly more available to find tutorials online which previously would not have been as achievable. If you are interested in learning the basics of the current FL Studio 12, below is an in-depth video tutorial.

What has been your most successful song you have produced? Why do you think that is?

“Jurp – Bankroll. The beat to it is amazing, obviously because I produced it.”

Which artists have you worked with? Who would you work with in the future if you had the chance?

Jurp, Chxpo, Nawfside Scott, Freshie, Lite Fortunato, Taliban Trizzy, I$AIAH, LoLifeLane, and a lot more people I can’t remember lol.”
“I’d definitely work with XXXTentacion, Pi’erre Bourne, Trippie Redd, Young Thug, MF DOOM, SahBabii, D Savage, Smokepurpp, and Diplo just to name a few. “

Who do you think is the best in the rap game currently? Which popular producer do you think is the best at the moment and why?

“Young Thug is the best artist out by far. Pi’erre Bourne is probably the best producer out right now. All of his beats are crazy.”

You state that you believe you are creative and stand out, why do you think that? Is your uniqueness replicated through your music?

“I know that my music doesn’t sound like half of these guys making it right now. I think my melodies are so much more different than the majority and I love adding weird effects to my drums. I always compare my beats to alien sounds. I don’t like to think I’ve ever made a bad beat, but everybody has. But I haven’t.”
