Pyrodox has had a pretty incredible story to date. His singles have been very well received through the passion and energy which he includes in each track. Pairing this off with all the production work the artist has done, this has led to releases on Mixmash Records and many other labels. But to get a little bit of the Behind The Scenes action, Pyrodox talks about his latest release ‘Never Let Me Go’ on Mixmash Records.

To kick things off, can you tell us how the idea for the record came about?

It was just an ordinary studio day at first, making concepts and experimenting with weird sounds. After some time messing around I made the top melody for “Never Let Me Go” and I thought “This could be something!”.

When you go into the studio, do you already have an idea of how you wanted a record to sound or do you decide to go into the studio and start something from scratch?

When I enter the studio I mostly start from scratch and experiment with samples, synths and recordings. After that melodies appear in my head and I try to incorporate them in my projects. That’s how my first ideas come together!

Can you tell us a bit about the production process of ‘Never Let Me Go?

For “Never Let Me Go” I started of with a basic idea (the top melody on the drop). After that I got chords to support the top melody, then added drums, fx, variations etc. The track was done but I felt it needed something more, a topline. INA filled this gap perfectly and made the track 100% complete!

What hardware and software did you use during the production process?

I’m a big FL Studio lover. I’ve been using it for around 8 years now and still loving it (except the errors sometimes haha). As for the plugins I mostly use Massive, Sylenth1, Synthmaster 2, Spire, Nexus, Zeta+ and loads of fx plugins.

The track is a Future Bass anthem, full of driving basslines and infectious synths. Why did you decide to become a Future Bass producer and DJ?

I didn’t really decide to become a Future Bass producer, I make much more then only that! Trap, Dubstep, Hardstyle, House, I love everything and I just make what feels right at that specific moment. I do try to give everything I make a certain “Pyrodox” sound!

Ina’s stunning vocals feature on the track. How did your association with Ina come about and what do you look for in a vocalist when selecting one?

I have to give that credit to Mixmash Records. They heard the instrumental and thought Ina would fit the track and she did! Ina recorded the vocal together with Marcus in Finland and send it over to me. I was straight up blown away by it!

The release of ‘Never Let Me Go’ sees you make a return to Laidback Luke’s Mixmash Records – what were you reasons for signing the record to the label?

Very simple! I just love the label. The team is absolutely amazing and of course I admire Laidback Luke. I really like where the label is going musical wise, releasing all kinds of music of many genre’s!

How important do you think it is for labels to invest time and money into giving upcoming talent a platform to showcase their talents?

I think it’s really important to stimulate talent, both young and old. Encourage experimenting, creating new sounds and genres is the best thing you can do as a label.

What does the rest of 2016 hold for Pyrodox and can we see another release on Mixmash in the near future?

I’m working on many tracks with different artists and I also have plans to make an EP. I’m also working on a follow-up track to hopefully release on Mixmash with Shelco Garcia & Teenwolf. Other than that I will be performing a lot and throwing my own party’s!
