POINT OF VIEW INTERVIEW #12

PRODUCER/DJ: AViDD


When I first heard Avidd's music, one thing that stood out to me was the diversity he has with his music style. He is an oddity with many tricks up his musical sleeve. With only the six tracks he has out on Soundcloud, Avidd is capable of producing both a soulful groove as well as a tight and hyper sound! He can envelope all types of sounds and beats to create a track that blows your mind, such as "Scrub" and his recent release, "I Told Ya." From getting recognition from music blogs, like Nest HQ, to playing shows with artists like Fan Fiction and Seimei, it's easy to see that Avidd is a gem in the electronic music scene. To get a sense of who Avidd is and what direction he is heading towards, check out the interview I did with him below!

Question 1: What got you into making music? 
I took piano lessons at an early age from my neighbor, and was in choir throughout elementary school, and from there I started a band with my friends in middle school.  Eventually I got tired of having to meet up with them every time I wanted to make music so I turned to music software, and that developed into what I'm doing today.

Question 2: What people intrigue you or inspire you to pursue music? (Can be in any field i.e music, writers, etc.) 
HudMo, Bonobo, Machinedrum, AWE, Lorn, Three 6 Mafia, Nicolas Jaar, Carmack, Goldie, Blink-182, Canblaster, Four Tet, Jamie XX, Eprom, Inoj, 123mrk, Sinjin Hawke, Outkast, Noisia, Vangelis

Question 3: How would you define your style of music?
This question is always hard to answer, but I would say eclectic electronic. I don't plan on ever making one genre specifically, because I'm obsessed with how limitless music is, and that's one of the most exciting parts about it for me.

Question 4: What influences your style of work?
Naturally the people mentioned above, and lately I have been digging back to older classics.  My influences range from gutter trap to ambient music to pop.  Traveling, seasons changing, and meeting people with different backgrounds influence me greatly.  

Question 5: What is your favorite track that you have produced so far?
The one that’s sitting on my hard drive right now that’s not out yet :-).

Question 6: How far do you plan to take your music, any future plans? Who would you like to work with in the future?
Definitely.  I’ll be getting into producing more pop music this year and working with more rappers/singers.  I'm already working with some of my favorite musicians right now and very very excited about what we have in the pipelines.
