DS_datasetup01

A few weeks ago, we asked our instagram friends to show us their production/ djing setup. We wanted to see where you guys write tunes, where you spin records, where the music was made and in return, we would select 10 winners for a free sticker giveaway, and the most creative photo will receive some free #DatasetClothing gear.

DS_datasetup02

One of the rules require to either show something Dataset on the photo, or just write “dataset” on a piece of paper,
We thought NickGrimace deserved the most creative photo, for having a friend hiding on the photo wearing a Dataset camo hat while holding a piece of paper with his instagram name. So we sent him a bunch of gear!

DS_datasetup03

For the rest of participants, we sent 10 free sticker packs that went as far a Hong Kong, we are super stoked that people are showing support from so far. Thanks for participating!.

Real name:
Jérôme MEYER

What is the best thing about making/mixing tunes:
Well the best thing to me is to get in the Zone and then forget about everything around me, spending hours in that kind of deep meditation making tunes is what really feels good to me. I’ve never produced tunes like a robot. I really have to get goose bumps, otherwise I really don’t make tunes, I’d rather get out and spend time in the nature for example or read a book, but when the goose bumps are here, no one can get me out of this vibe and the tune can be done within few hours .

Whats also amazing is that I test all my tunes in clubs and festivals many times and thats the best inspiration ever as well, ’cause I get really excited knowing I’m gonna drop the tune next weekend while in the studio .

Your favorite studio gear:
Hummm… I would say my ears haha. Nah, seriously I got a Valve EQ which I really like but its all about your ears and knowledge about music really, people sometimes are talking much shit about what gear you need to have to achieve a certain sound and thats not true at all … if you were to see the studios of some top names in the scene, you would be really surprised trust me .

What artist inspires/motivates you:
There’s a few artist that motivates me , of course close friends like Swindle, Silkie, Quest, Chefal and others … but the start of my love with bass music is Dillinja and Lemon D, they had that sound that completely changed the way I view music …

Their beats are often really hard but its always Soulful and they just have their sound … sound signature is really something that capture my attention when I listen to certain producers.

Life changing album:
Photek – Modus Operandi

Production tip:
Be open minded and find your own sound , its not about creating the same hard bass as others but make things sound your way .

Something people don’t know about you:
I’m French, I don’t watch TV and I eat snails from time to time .

Favorite food joint:
My Lady’s Soto Soup (indonesian dish), I’m a sucker for soup , I’m really a soup lover.
