partywithray on Keeping Music Fun & Working With Marvel

This week, partywithray sat down to chat for the EDM Prodcast.

Freddy AKA partywithray is a self-described ‘swag house’ producer from LA. After playing in indie rock bands for a long time, he’s taken a turn into electronic music with a very deep, bass-and-vocal driven sound.

In this interview, we discuss working with ZHU and how they both went to the same high school. He uncovers how knowing the person you work with in the studio can lead to fun creative results, especially when working in person.

We dive into the sync deal with Marvel for The Falcon & The Winter Soldier series and how that came about, and about how just putting your music out there can sometimes lead to unexpected, positive results.

As you’ll notice, partywithray is great at keeping a light and fun approach to music and production, so make sure not to miss this one.
