Pro Member Interview – Matty Galaxy

Matty Galaxy - SM

Rhythm is the thread that has woven the path for DJ and Producer, Matthieu Bohemier a.k.a Matty Galaxy. What started as a fascination with rhythm as a child has grown into a rising career, having already shared stages with international DJs, such as Grand Theft, Ryan Hemsworth, Zedds Dead and more. Matty is part of the next generation of up coming producers and is currently in L.A working alongside producer “Bongo” By The Way. Below is his interview with S.A.C.:

 

  • What inspires you to create music?

Anything and Everything. I could be sitting anywhere, mid conversation and hear a song in the distance that has a awesome sounding section I would love to sample. It could be a rhythm of a bird chirp, a cup of coffee or even something visual like art or a movie. I make a point to always have my ears open ALWAYS and let the inspiration flow to me. The sense of freedom while creating is also something that will always inspire me to create more music.

  • Do you have any musical influences who have influenced your style, or who you give a “nod” to whenever possible?

Danja is hands down my favourite producer. I spent a lot of time in Highschool studying his instrumentals while walking the halls. When the time came for me to decide what I wanted to spend my life doing, his music made it easy for me to decide that production is for me. I soak in a lot of different styles in my beats, I always try to pull from different genres and not be stagnant. I definitely learned a lot from listening to Danja and given the chance I would have to thank him for inspiring me to chase my dream and to be fearless while creating.

  • If you could collaborate with any other music creator, who would that be?

Okay.. There is a ton but to narrow it down I would love to work with other producers such as Danjahandz, Max Martin or Cirkut. These guys are sooo creative and keep me inspired.

  • Do you have any advice for upcoming songwriters and creators who are looking to break further into the creative scene?

One thing I have learned is that, face to face songwriting sessions are soooo Important! Of course the internet is huge and you can send music back and forth with someone. There is something so different about the energy exchange when your in the same room with someone, you learn so much about each other and get to play off each others energies. I would also say to go to one of the bigger Cities. Risk it all.. go to a place like Los Angeles and stay there as long as you can. I’ve found the universe knows when you are making sacrifice and will reward you. I spent a whole summer DJ’ing weddings and working at a pizza shop full time to save up to move to LA for 4 months. I sacrificed all my time to put myself in the best position possible and it paid off. I met my mentor Bongo By The Way the FIRST month I was there and I recently had my first professional music placement with him. Take the Risk, Always..

Pro Member Interview – Thrillah Kane

Thrillah Kane - SM
Dartmouth born emcee Thrillah is easily the most buzzed about artist in Halifax’s thriving hip-hop scene. One of Thrillah’s best qualities is his ability to think and rap sensually. His luscious flow combined with beat pauses that highlight his tongue-twisted lyrical pace. Thanks to versatile and energetic artists like Thrillah, Halifax is seeing a new wave of rap culture. Here is our interview with this up and coming hip-hop artist:

 

  • What inspires you to create music?

The right environment with good vibes good people and the ear candy instrumentals also things that go on in my life could really inspire the creative side of a record.

  • Do you have a process to your songwriting or when creating music?

I would normally go through several beats, choose one to vibe with and record multiple voice memos with different styles, flows and stories over the beat until the proper one stands out to me.

  • How has your music evolved since you first became a recording/performing artist?

I’m most comfortable with the hip-hop/rap side of things. I always do enjoy writing R&B and I’m never afraid to step out of my comfort zone and try working with different genres of music. The music has gotten stronger, better quality and the stage presents also has strengthened. I’m much more comfortable in front of a crowed. Before it was more on and then off the stage type of deal, now once I get started I don’t want to leave, I love to interact with the fans and just make sure everybody is satisfied before the shows done.
