Artist Feature: Drache

Our latest artist feature is with Drache (pronounced “Drashay”) – so let’s find our more …

Tell us a little bit about your yourself?

I’m 29 years old and I’ve been producing music for 10 years. I love making music and doing film scoring. I won first place in a beat competition a few years back. I have an amazing Fiancé and two wonderful little girls.

When did you first start to develop a passion for music?

At a very early age. I was in bands in middle school and a high school. My parents got me my first guitar back in 5th grade and I’ve been playing music and creating it ever since.

2011 is when I began producing, I went out on a tour in 2011 with a close friend of mine who DJ’s and produces for a living, and to so see him play every night and create music inspired me to wanna do the same thing. And here I am. I no longer DJ but I am always producing and trying create the next big hit.

Which artists did you listen to while growing up?

Pantera, Coldplay, Fatboy Slim, Moby, The Prodigy, Alice Deejay, Jamiroquai. The list goes on, but those are my favourites.

How would you describe your music to someone who hasn’t heard you before?

That’s kind of a hard one because I make all genres of music. I would say it’s more like a roller coaster because in my files it can go from a super EPIC orchestral song to a super poppy top 40 type song to a really dark type beat haha.

What music have you recorded and released to date?

Over the last 10 years I would have to say over 300 songs. A LOT of them are no longer uploaded. Some are but you would have to do some serious digging to find them. I would back in the day and not tell anyone about it.

Which artists do you enjoy listening to at the moment – and do they influence your work?

Hans Zimmer, Bryan Tyler, Swedish House Mafia, Afrojack, Pantera – they all influence my music in many ways. When I’m looking for new inspiration for new creating new music and I’m stuck I’ll usually put some of their music on and it always helps me break through that rut that I’m in.

Who would your dream collaboration be with?

The DREAM would be both Hans Zimmer and Bryan Tyler. The both of them have created scores to my favourite films and to work on just ONE track with the both them would be phenomenal.

What are your plans for the future?

Keep putting out new music, keep trying to push the envelope, gain a massive fanbase around the world. Have a career in music fulltime.

Where can we find out more about you?

I’m on all streaming platforms and you can also follow me on Instagram and Twitter.
