Get To Know Needs No Sleep With New Track + Q&A [TMN Interview]

If you like house music, then you need to know Needs No Sleep. Just as his name says, he will keep you up all night with his energetic tracks that have received support from the likes of Afrojack, Dyro and Tommy Trash. Mitch Thomas, otherwise known as Needs No Sleep, is one of those producer’s on the brink of taking things to the next level, one that will put him in front of the biggest crowds available.

Needs No Sleep recently came out with a new single called “Who Can Do” before he came to the dojo to answer several questions about the project and himself. Over the course of our talk, Needs No Sleep covered topics like the new track, the scene in Australia and what’s to come next. Enjoy “Who Can Do” while you enlighten yourself with NNS and get ready for more goodies soon from this talented producer.

TMN: Thanks for joining us, Needs No Sleep! Congrats on your new track. How did the idea for this one come about?

NNS: I started with the vocal hook of the track, ‘Who Can Do What I Do’ which I recorded with my own vocal in my studio. I then played around and added some FX to it to have it sounding how it is now. After that I made the drop, and then a buildup and breakdown to go with it.

TMN: What would you say is the most ‘Needs No Sleep’ element of this track?

NNS: The heavy bassline groove is a clear indication that it’s a ‘Needs No Sleep’ track!

TMN: Can you tell us a little about how you began making music?

Having previously worked under another alias, I’ve been producing music for about 6 years. It’s given me the time to really hone my craft and sound which is part of the reason for the new ‘Needs No Sleep’ alias.

TMN: What’s the scene like in Aus? Does the music go down a treat?

NNS: The scene is great, as are the people in it. Great environment to nurture collaborations and receive feedback when needed

TMN: So tell us a bit about the process of making your work. Did you find that inspiration just flows as soon as you hit the studio?

NNS: One of the most important things that I live by is that you cannot force creativity, forced music will never be as good as music that comes naturally from an idea. Whenever I find I have inspiration for something, I will try and jump in the studio straight away to capture the idea that I have in my head. If that’s not possible then I will make a voice memo of it in my phone to then re visit it when I am in the studio later.

TMN: You’ve teamed up with Vicious Recordings in the past. How did you end up working with the team?

After the success of “Get Faded” and how well that was received, we decided to team up again for “Who Can Do.” I know the guys as we both live in the same city so we’ve had a great working relationship.

TMN: What’s the weirdest thing that’s happened to you while gigging?

NNS: You wouldn’t believe the half of it – also NSFW, haha

TMN: What’s next for Needs No Sleep?

NNS: After this release on Vicious I’m teaming up with Sebastian Bronk for a collaboration called “Trashed” which will be released on New York Label Uprise Music.
