How to Find Your True Musical Style With Attom

This week, Attom sat down to chat on the EDMProdcast.

Attom is an indie-electronic music producer who’s released on labels like Ultra, Foreign Family Collective, and Lowly Palace, and released official remixes for artists like ODESZA, Selena Gomez, and Jai Wolf.

If you’re currently struggling to find the right genre or style for your artist project, this is the episode for you.

We discuss Attom’s background in music, looking at the lengthy road he took to find his unique sound. Attom had early success in a style he didn’t love making, which is more common than you might think, so we talk a lot about the importance of finding a style of music that both you enjoy writing and fans respond to. 

We also talk about his early success with remix competitions, the importance of finding validation early on in your production career, and what he learned taking a gap year to focus on music.

On the production side, we dive deep into his writing workflow, looking at how he effectively builds ideas from scratch. We discuss how he creatively uses Splice samples, his approach to layering, and why trusting your taste is critical for your growth as a producer. Later on, we discuss how he creates music that’s built to be performed live, and how to deal with the perpetual overwhelm that most producers face.
