What Musical Genre Do You Feel Best Describes Your Music And How Would You Describe Your Sound?
Progressive Trance, dance or house, occasionally has elements of oldskool and Acid House. Also i improvise so some of it could be classed as experimental.
How Did You Get Your Name? Is There A Story?
I came up with the name Force of Impulse (music) due to the way i improvise. When creating a track i usually just 'feel'' my way through it, and while improvising and jamming to find the right sound to go with say, a particular beat etc, it is usually created out of impulse when i get the feeling of the track...kind of like using the force with sounds lol..thats how it feels lol hense the name. :)
My older brother is a professional oldskool house DJ in Manchester UK. by the name of Club Freindly DJs he created a trio of DJ's...but he was starting out in the rave acid rave and house era of the late 80's early 90's..with 2 old record/tape deck hifi systems that were common back then. He tried to wire them together to get the belts in time on those old record players, as he couldnt afford decks, he was 15, i was 10. I watched him over the years growe and grow and hone his skill and become a reputable DJ based in Manchester! even performing along side Stu Allen once. He taught me to beat count! and i used the knowledge to try my hand at music production, it was many years over due.
What Are or Have Been Your Musical Influences?
My brother, as a kid watching him play all the classics back in the day, late 80's early 90's dance, rave house etc..my parents always had music on all the time, step dad played all the 80's ..we were big on Petshop Boys and Erasure and Jean Michelle Jarre, they would play all sorts really out of his Technics system.
Sash and artists alike are a big influence, but basically all the house artists, funky house, Head Kandy etc...basically all music..i listen to anything almost and i'm always inspired i just love all music to be fair.
What Are You Working On Now? Any Future Collaborations We Can Look Forward To?
I am currently just making my own music, I have a few more progressive trance tracks to do in order to make a playlist for Youtube etc..i am new to this i'm a year or so in to music production, i would love to do a collaboration as and when the time is right. I would like to explore other genres also.
What Is Your Ultimate Goal In The Music Industry? What Is Your Plan Of Action?
My ultimate goal would be to be signed by a label, also have some of my music licensed for TV, Radio r adverts etc,, i don't think i could gig at this point, as i say above i improvise my tracks. I am essentially a ''bedroom producer'' as they call it these days, its a hobby but its a dream to be able to earn a steady income from this, on the side even if its small at first.
What Is Your Favorite Track To Perform Live and Why?
I have not performed live yet, and it may be early days for that, but i would like to play what tracks the people like. It would be something high energy though to get that flow going, and connecting with the crowd :)
What Has Been The Biggest Challenge In Your Career Thus Far?
Learning how to use new gear! and also keyboard skills, practising chord progressions and stuff like that. But also branding myself and social media, gaining a following (a legitimate one) on Youtube and Bandcamp etc is hard! that's my main challenge at the minute.
What’s Your Typical Songwriting Process?
I usually start with a beat, a basic beat but i make it the tempo of what i want the finished product to be. I then try to find a good sound, that would make a good hook, then i play around with it and try to make it sound big and 'catchy' I would then create the parts of the track individually, id start with the intro, then a chorus, then some breakdowns etc..this is all before the mastering and EQ's start, thats the hard part! but i am always learning.
How Has Social Media Influenced Your Career As An Artist?
Its helped me a bit to get some followers and subscribers on youtube mainly, a mere 30 subscribers haha!! but it is ok as it is early days and i plan to get an Instagram account up and running, as ive been told to do so byt a good friend who studies in online and social media marketing.
Social media has been an amazing platform to share my creations etc, its just building those all important followers now...ill get there :)
What Are Some Tracks and Artists Currently On Your Playlist?
I follow all sorts, to name a few i love the older Trance sounds so all of those early trance and house artists, i spend my time listening to classics..but i keep an ear to the modern world also, Dua Lipa has a really great sound and vibe, i love all her tracks so far, and many more current ones like 100 Gecs and Anfisa Letyago are ones to watch!
What Did You Do Before You Started Making Music?
I just work like a normal mortal in a full time job, my music is what i do around that. I have been a welder, worked in shops, call centres and the building trade..ill try anything..it keeps you fresh!
Any Advice For Young People (Men or Women) That Want To Succeed In The Music World?
I would say once you are making music to a good standard and also that people like, to build a following, Instagram, Facebook and youtube, if you can get your music on spottily this is a great way to get noticed...having chosen the longer harder route i am now learning this...but get a sound, play around and do not be afraid to try anything in your music...and HAVE FUN! you have to enjoy it to get in the zone, and thats where the creative magic happens :)
What Would You Change In The Music Industry If You Were A Top Music Executive?
Less manufactured bands..more raw talent! So many manufactured bands or groups get so big and then just disappear! its a huge shame and bad for the fans! I would promote original artists with experience and help them, people creating amazing things are not heard, the musical machine for the mainstream charts takes over a little bit i think. There is a reason why we hear old classics being remade over and over again, just watering the original track down each time..that era 80's and 90's was so amazing and so influential that they keep using and sampling the classics...we need another era like the 80's and 90's to find new styles and new artists.How Do You Feel About Originality?:I feel it is very important! Originality in your work is essential, because you created it and it is unique. You come up with some thing original and great and people will want to use it over and over again for tv media, even in their tracks for years to come. I try to keep ALL my tracks original, then if somebody likes it or downloads it i truly know that they like my creativeness.
In this world nowadays its important to own your own originality, it becomes your identity.
Is There Anything Else We Should Know About You Or That You Would Like to Add?
I would like to just say thank you to College Underground Radio for accepting my latest track 'TrancefiXon3:44.00' and playing it it on the station. So far this is the biggest and first real thing to happen to me in this musical journey and i really really appreciate it!
Also please subscribe to me if you like this track as i am creating more tracks in the future, id like to offer my tracks to any DJ's out there who may want to spin any of my tracks, they are only £1.00 to buy on my bandcamp (see links above) all though id probably be happy to give the tracks for FREE (at first) if i knew people would be getting down to it! :)
