You’ve been producing for quite some time now. What’s it like being an old school producer in this new day and age?

I mostly grew up listening to House and the most popular dance records so the music I create has a wide range of influences. It’s a split of genres now. Making house music isn’t really based on being old school, it’s just one of my favorite sounds. I like big room and electro elements, but they don’t speak to me enough to create a work that fits squarely in those lanes. There’s an acceptance behind making what fits your ear and letting go of what’s trendy for profit’s sake. I think it’s great to have your hand on a pulse, but I am most comfortable creating from my ear and taste then with pure technical skills.

How did you first get into music production? 

Recording at other studios and always feeling rushed…trying so hard to maximize the time. It’s a creative-killer so I started building my own studio so I could create whenever I wanted to- in whatever zone I needed to be in.

When was your first big break as an electronic music producer? 

I wouldn’t even say I’ve had my big break yet. My break-though came when I decided to switch from beatz to instrumentals and then to something groovy and danceable. I was experimenting and working towards something. While sitting at a train station, I was cranking my latest mix and the kids started dancing. I knew then that I was on the right path.

Domino Grey interview with JamSphere 20 Questions Deep with Rick Jamm!

Twenty Questions: DOMINO GREY – The Intellectual Electronic Music Artist!

Domino Grey Electronic Musician

Thinkin…Thinkin….

Electronic Music producer, Domino Grey from New York, has influences that range from HipHop to Deep House. He is part of a group that releases instrumental music under the name Fallout Shelter and producing records as Drew Spence and Dynamics Plus. Recently in an exclusive interview, Domino confirmed that his  prowess and skills are not only confined to keyboards and mixing desks. The man (and artist) comes across as a rational and intelligent being, who completely understands his art and the sacrifices necessary to move within, and more importantly around and outside of its boundaries successfully.

1. How long have you been doing what you’re doing and how did you get started in the first place?

Domino Grey: It’s been a few years now doing electronic music after many years doing Hip Hop and Rap. I think there’s some kind of artistic debt in trying to give the same kinds of experiences with my music that I had, when I was younger. I want to recreate what I felt then for someone else.

2. Who were the first influences on your sound and who do you consider the most influential electronic music producer in your genre today?

Domino Grey: Influential for today, I would say Deadmou5 and for dub enthusiasts, Skrillex -more so, for what they have accomplished, than their musical sensibilities overall. I think many artists see them as the end goal for their musical aspirations. It’s a little funny when the kids only look at their last two years in the big spotlight and think that’s all there is to it. So easy. Those are developed artists with long histories and are not overnight success stories. I tend to be inspired by ideas and not sounds or production techniques.

3. Do you remember the first piece of software or equipment that you actually purchased, for your productions, with your own money?

Domino Grey: First, I’m not so sure of, but most significant would be the Ensoniq ASR0-10 sampling keyboard. I bought it brand new from Sam Ash for over 2 grand, at a time when you didn’t know who else was using it besides yourself. There wasn’t a fantasy in my head like if I get this, I’ll be just like so and so. It was all about what it could do for me. When I forked over the money I thought “Okay, now you’d better be serious about this.”

Domino Grey Pretty Imposter

She posed as someone else to look like herself

Whether you find yourself rocking to and fro in your favorite armchair on a mind trip, or grooving enthusiastically across the club floor, this Ep acts as a really nice soundtrack. Atmospheric and spacey, Domino Grey illustrates his profound grasp of Electronic Music, proving he is able, to incorporate exquisite beat pulses and sounds into his intelligent motifs.

D.O.M.I.N.O. Dance Or Move In Natural Order G.R.E.Y. Generate Rhythmic Energy Yourself. In two simple words DOMINO GREY. Domino Grey is an Electronic Music producer from New York. His influences range from HipHop to Deep House. He is part of a group that releases instrumental music under the name Fallout Shelter and producing records as Drew Spence and Dynamics Plus. His newest project is contributing to the soundtrack of the Mark of the Griffin web series and comic book. It’s about a regular guy turned into a vigilante-like superhero that’s not so super. After creating the video, Domino adds his music as the final signature.

I’ve been performing, producing and writing about music for almost 30 years now. Back in the old days I hustled my way around the major labels, while today I have chosen to work in the grinding indie music market. Throughout all this time I have come to distinguish two types of music artists. There’s the genuine musician who simply creates music he feels, and let’s everyone else put their own personal label to it. All he cares about is the music. Then there is your ‘hope to make it big’, hype-and-image variety of artist, who is so unsure about what everyone else will call what his doing, that he labels himself. Just in case everyone else gets it wrong (?)!

Ninety-nine percent of the time, I know who’s making music worth listening to, before I even hear a single note, just by listening to, or reading how artists introduce themselves. A few days ago a kid approached me and asked: “Hey, I’d like you to review my music, I’m a Deep Soulful House artist, do you think you know this music well enough, to handle it?” My answer was, what it has always been for the last 30 years, and taken from a phrase I heard somewhere as a kid. “Unfortunately I only know two types of music. Good and Bad. If you fall into one of those genres, send your music along!” Needless to say, the kid was flabbergasted, and it took him a while to understand.

Domino Grey = Dance or Move In Natural Order Generate Rhythmic Energy Yourself

Domino Grey sat down to talk to us about his influences, the many aliases he releases music under, and his new masterpiece, Butterfly Affect Part 1: Facial Recognition Technology.

The Butterfly flies

I understand the concept of fake it till you make it, but I think a lot of us are sliding towards the faking it becoming all that it’s about. —Domino Grey

Let’s break the ice. Who are you? Where are you from? What style of music do you create?

Domino Grey is a New York music producer who creates under several aliases, across multiple genres. His influences range from Electronica to Hip Hop.

Domino Grey is a really dope acronym (Dance or Move In Natural Order Generate Rhythmic Energy Yourself). What inspired it?

That’s the nerd-scientist in me. Everything has to stand for something and have meaning. My Domino is about inter-locking styles and elements like you would see playing the game Dominos. The greyness relates to an inexact approach. I slide around somewhere between all the rules and music formulas. I try and make that my approach to life too. Most people call this balance in all things.

Your music has this depth to it that is hard to explain. What inspires your creation process? What other music do you listen to or draw inspiration from?

I love science, science fiction, experimentation and exploration. I love movie soundtracks- where the music and sound effects merge into one. That’s done in movies like Blade Runner, Star Trek and even Apocalypse Now. Also, I like when music tells a story. Anything epic and grand will inspire me.

New Year’s A New Year – music from Domino Grey

New Music from Domino Grey “New Year’s A New Year”

 

Album Artwork Domino Grey New Year's A New Year

New music with a message

Domino Grey and Michael from RadioWaves.US present a special message for the New Year. Vocal edit and instrumental available plus bonus Happy New Year song.

“Hello everyone. This is Michael from RadioWaves.US with Domino Grey. Now that New Years has passed and a NEW YEAR is upon us, I’d like to share some important thoughts about your next 365 days.

We use New Years as a marker of hope to bring sweeping CHANGES to our lives. Too often, we find ourselves dreaming of a better life
Most of us dream about becoming rich and draw up lofty plans and ideas about how to change our cash flow. A more realistic goal is to IMPROVE our finances by monitoring how much we spend and what we spend it on. Consider where your money goes and even where it comes from and make improvements. Eliminating foolish spending on disposable items and empty entertainment can go a long way to improving your month to month budget.

We hope to change our relationships by changing people. We see ourselves as operating in the right and everyone else that doesn’t agree, operating in the wrong. That’s a very black and white way to look at our friends and partners. Consider the idea that in-between the Black and White, there is Grey.

Disagreements and stalemates occur when we find ourselves arguing to be right, instead of sharing our ideas and concepts. We never need to change what makes our relationships special, but we can improve them by remembering why people were accepted into our lives.

And lastly, we all want to change the shape of our bodies, but how about improving our health instead? Instead of looking in a mirror and waiting for change, you can look in your kitchen and see the improvement. Choosing to eat better is choosing to live better. It’s not about working out but working out a balanced life of responsible eating and exercise.

This is Michael from RadioWaves.US with Domino Grey wishing you a productive and safe year.”

Domino Grey is a child of rhythm- born from the Organic Electronic. The mixture of our Past and Future presents us with a sonic footprint- a quiet moment in time when silence expressed our deepest emotions and music was the only word spoken. These are cascading thoughts falling across a canvass of sound. Use these new colors to illustrate your imagination. Please touch the walls and leave behind the fingerprints as evidence of your existence.
