Here at Techibeats we are always looking for awesome new producers and few have stood out to us like Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman have. This Swedish duo have been working so hard to put out amazing progressive house tunes, and they have been doing just that. Whether it be a remix or an original track their productions are always top notch, unique and make you want to dance! We were lucky enough to catch up with these guys for an exclusive Techibeats interview.
Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman – Roll The Dice (Original Mix) | Beatport
First of all thanks a lot for the interview, I am sure you guys are very busy. For our readers who don’t know you guys why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourselves and your background in music.
Well, we are 2 guys from Sweden that love music, in all of its forms. May it be Rock, RnB, Hip Hop, Metal you name it. We bring all of our influences to the table and try to do electronic music that we enjoy!
How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard your music?
We would like to describe it as big, euphoric and correct.
You guys have had some amazing releases in the past which were endorsed by some of the industry’s biggest names. What can we expect from you in the future?
We have a couple of originals in the making and some remixes already done. That alongside some touring this fall/winter will make things exciting!
If you two could collab with any artist, electronic or not, who would it be?
They are to many to mention, but as we have said in the past perhaps: Rob Swire, Wolfgang Gartner, Noisia and Axwell (No internal ranking). We tend to be suckers for production quality…
If you had one day where you couldn’t get in a studio and didn’t have a gig, what would you do if you could do absolutely anything?
We would probably hang out with our friends. We don’t do that to often these days…
Do you guys have a set process when you get in the studio (ex. you always start with melody) or is it always different?
It’s always different and we tend to discuss this quite a bit. In the end it always ends up the same way. We end up having a track and we add as much detail as we want to make it complete. We go back and forth a lot during the making of a track and almost never start the same…
Let’s move to something a little more technical… What DAW do you guys use and what are some of your favorite plug-ins?
We work with Cubase 6 and i think our favourite plugins overall are in the Komplete package from Native Instruments. As we say to everybody who asks, you wont get more value then Komplete. It’s amazing…
Any plans to head over to the US anytime soon?
We are working on it!
Do you guys have any words of wisdom for up and coming producers?
Keep trying hard and don’t let people try to get to you. Have an honest approach and respect your colleagues. Music is not a competition… if you work hard you will eventually get where you want to be!
