Enter The Dojo For oddprophet’s First Ever Q&A [TMN Interview]

It’s always an honor to share a debut song from a new act, but having the first chat with them is a whole other thing. Luckily enough, we caught up with one of Never Say Die‘s newest family members, oddprophet, for his first ever interview. The budding bass beatsmith is surrounded by legends in NSD, but he may end up taking the reigns with his extraordinary sounds.

Not only do we have his first interview to share with you, but below you can find his EP, Process, complete with four masterful works. Upon listening you’ll see just why we’re so hyped on this cat. In catching up with him, we cover where he came into the music scene, how Process came about and what the future may look like for this promising star. We’ve said it about so many acts, but we’ll say it again here: Get to know oddprophet before everyone else does.

’oddprophet – Everything’
’oddprophet – No More’
’oddprophet – Process’
’oddprophet & Ecraze – Spread Like’

TMN: Can you tell us more about your origins as a producer? When did you first start producing and did you have any musical experience before that?

OP: I started messing around on FL Studio for fun around 2011. Before that it was guitar and choir in my high school. Nothing creative until I picked up a DAW and looking back at some of the “songs” I made back then, it always gives me a good laugh on how poor they were. It’s nice to look back at where you’ve come from, but it’s motivated a couple of friends to know that with practice and time you can always be better.

TMN: Tell us a bit more about your hometown, Swansea. How did your environment influence your sound?

OP: Much like the UK, par London, there was no dubstep scene. It was all drum and bass, deep house and grime that would bring in the crowds. Shout out to events like Funktion Tek that inspired me to write jump up for a bit, but that’s not where my real passion lied and I always had a soft spot for heavy dubstep. After moving to Cardiff, I could really focus on developing my sound as my course would go over the basics for the first year. It was that year I found the sound I wanted to continue making from all the free time I had to experiment!

TMN: What was the inspiration behind the ‘Process’ EP? How would you describe the difference in sound from your previous ‘Notorious? EP, which was released on Never Say Die Black Label?

The main idea of the ‘Process’ EP was to make music that stood out and had the perfect mix of sound design, heaviness and dancey flow. Sometimes, with the over-saturation of EDM, it’s easy to come across loads of similar songs that lack character and individuality. Not “being a part of the process” was always a main objective when creating new music. ‘Notorious’ EP had the same notion behind the production of those tunes, but this one I went full out and wasn’t scared to try something more crazy. The positive comments on ‘Process’ have given me courage to take it up a level next release.

TMN: How did the collaboration with Ecraze on “Spread Like” come about?

OP: The collaboration with Ecraze was already settled after “Ammo.” Being a quiet fan of Thom’s music for a year before he noticed me, having him reach out and ask to collaborate was the major step I needed to get my music out there. He was amazing to work with and so it was a no brainier to work on something again. Still in debt to him for welcoming my name into Never Say Die and we’ve been great friends ever since. Our next goal is B2B somewhere in Europe, probably Paris. Spread Like is not the last song we’ll make together for sure. Graphyt is also sure to make an appearance with a tune with us some time.

TMN: Do you have plans to tour anytime soon?

OP: Touring has been the dream for a while now. It’s quite simple to understand why producers want to tour. It’s not work for any of us. To earn money doing what you love is not working and it’s quite scary to understand that a tour is already in the works for oddprophet. Things are happening faster than I thought they would! Traveling is another reason why I’m glad this will be happening sooner rather than later.

TMN: While it’s hard to name just 1 dream collaboration, who is the first person that comes to mind when you think about potential collaborators?

I haven’t told him yet, but SVDDEN DEATH and I would probably make something quite nasty. He uses that same balance of heaviness and flow I mentioned. Songs like “Take Ya Head Off” are almost too good to be real because the balance is so point in my opinion. Honourable mentions include MUST DIE! & Spag Heddy right now. Both have given me major support for my tunes this year and to be a part of any of these artists’ discography would be a true pleasure.

[Bass] Fox Stevenson – For Fox Sake EP

Fox Stevenson has long been regarded as one bass music’s best. Instead of riding his success out with minimal effort the producer has continued to expand on his impressive catalog with even more great records. His latest is the EP, For Fox Sake, that came out on Disciple. With three originals and a D&B mix of one of the songs, this EP has all the great Fox signatures and a whole lot more.

For Fox Sake may be our favorite release of his to date. Things fire up quickly with “The Heat” and from there it’s tough to not just stick it on repeat. However, once you move to “Miss You” you things get even heavier. The motif continues with “Gunshot Sonata” that builds upon the last track’s weight. Lastly, we’re left with a drum & bass remix of “Miss You” that acts as a nice change of pace for the project. Overall this one is top notch. You’ll want to grab a copy of it for yourself.

’Fox Stevenson – The Heat’
’Fox Stevenson – Miss You’
’Fox Stevenson & Scamp – Gunshot Sonata’
’Fox Stevenson – Miss You (D&B Mix)’

[Pop] Kaerhart – Drain My Love

Kaerhart
Drain My Love

Today in the dojo we’ve got a debut single to share with you from Kaerhart. The songwriter, who has worked for the likes of Vic Mensa, is stepping out into the spotlight with her own project and we’re all about it. Her first single “Drain My Love” is anything but average.

Kaerhart is no stranger to writing a great song, which is exactly what she did here. The single is liberating on multiple levels and is just the right first step for Kaerhart to grab everyone’s attention. She certainly has ours. The hybrid original is one of our favorite releases in the past few months and may just end up on our best of 2017 at the end of the year. It’s that good.

[Electronic] Mauwe – SMOKED A PACK

Mauwe
SMOKED A PACK

Mauwe is back with their second single under their project together. “Smoked A Pack” sees the duo continuing with their highly addictive crossover sound. Never would we have said that having smoked a pack be a good thing, except now.

“Smoked A Pack” is a tale of love and loss, but it’s not your typical boring, watered down cheese-fest that most pop acts push. It’s a simple, thoughtful portrayal of the feelings that come and go in a relationship. From the vocals down to the details within the instrumental, Mauwe got it right with this one. They’ve amazed us with their first two singles and we’re excited for what’s coming next.
