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.

Music Review DOMINO GREY “We Can Go Dancing” by THE MUSIC FEED

The Music Feed

Domino Grey Butterfly Affect Part I EP: Facial Recognition Technology

“We Can Go Dancing”

Butterfly Affect Part I cover

The Music Feed- feeds off Butterfly Affect Part I

“Domino Grey Promises Music That’s Rhythmic

Fun, and Great to Dance To”

“Domino Grey is a child of rhythm. A quick perusal of his music makes a strong case for the validity of this statement. Grey’s style is characterized by driving percussion, deep grooves, and a lighthearted, dance-y sense of fun. It calls to mind the funky ambiance of Royksopp,  Lindstrom, or Junior Boys. Grey has previously released two EPs in 2011, with styles ranging from instrumental hip-hop to nu jazz, and is looking to continue advancing his eclectic, dynamic sensibilities.”

Domino Grey Video for Primal Themes and the Beating of Wings

The video is finished for “Primal Themes and the Beating of Wings” from the Butterfly Affect EP Facial Recognition Technology. I had put this song in rotation for airplay and saw it performing great right along with “We Can Go Dancing” and “Just Look at Me”. I figured it would be one of the simpler videos to shoot so I went with this song first. It’s a pretty straightforward story and uses the dual layers of the butterflies and my fascination with a beauty I meet at a butterfly garden. Spacely Rockit filmed all of the butterfly shots- the close ups and our interaction and a producer friend filmed all of the close studio shots, here in Fallout Shelter Studios. The young lady in the video is Kenya Concepcion.

Music Review by Devon Jackson for “We Can Go Dancing” by Domino Grey

Over a pseudo-tabla-drum synth beat, Grey layers on other, bigger, though not at all overwhelming phrases—Moogish, rhythmic, sci-fi-ish. But nothing too big. Nothing too fast. It’s all very smooth. Very tempered. Very well thought out in terms of production, in terms of the feeling it’s wanting to convey. (As opposed to so many other electronica tunes that come at you pell-mell, or throwing out everything and the kitchen sink.) “We Can Go” is more like background music that’s finally, rightfully given center-stage—to a very mellow rave set in a very evolved near future. Picture—sonically, mind—the work of Paul Hardcastle or Jan Hammer, only without their aggressiveness, without that harsh edginess.

**Shared in a follow-up: I really like this. It’s somehow different without being pronouncedly different. What does that mean? Hmm. That you’re not trying to be different, that you’re not forcing it to be something than what it is. It’s whatever it is without you having over-thought it. Really nice.- Devon Jackson

Domino Grey Says:

-Following a good review makes a nice place for me to talk about the production of “We Can Go Dancing”. Not much of a track spotlight since this one fell together in a  pretty forward way.  I was grooving to it from the start. The first working had a 4 to the floor drum track that was ‘stolen’ by another song (from B Affect part II) that was just screaming it for it. So I stayed with the disco-y type drum track. DJ Boogiepop is always asking for more effects and filter sweeps in my mixes so I started this one off really Lo-Fi with the song crunched out like a poor radio broadcast. [removed in Europrint version] This is also one the simpler songs when it comes to gear use and the amount of processing. It’s 95% KORG M3 (Music) and Radikal Tech Spectralis 2 (Base and Drops). There’s a little KORG EMX for the drums and a few plugs running in the room after that.

This track became a lead single due to its popularity. It performed best on internet radio stations although a lot of DJs said “Just Look at Me” was the one to watch for. Mostly, I’ve kept them paired together and usually drop one after the other. One of my favorite parts is when the crowd gets noisy in the middle right before the song jumps back in.

And it’s funny that I used a crash. It’s so…cliche and common in most genres of music that it’s not really done in EDM. I was thinking “Yeah, I’m going to drop a classic Rock&Roll splash right as the track restarts. A big one, a  loud one. What’s funny is that it’s the simplest element, but it was also the one I spent the most time working with and agonizing over. I tried and layered over a dozen splashes from every module in the studio and none of them fit. I knew the one in my head was from my old KORG ES-1 Drum machine so I grabbed my recent purchase, the blue-meanie (as I call it) EMX and smashed away. There’s a layer of crashes that I stripped way in the original release that I put back in for the Europrint version.

Well, thanks for supporting my music. You can find it on iTunes, Amazon, Beatport and CDBaby.

A big shout to DJ Boogiepop and People’s Choice Entertainment DJs for giving my music so much burn.
