David Lawson better known in the electronic music scene as WRLD is one of the most promising young talents, having released with renowned record labels such as Monstercat and reaching massive promotional platforms like Mr.SuicideSheep at just the age of eighteen. Now focusing on music full time, he is living what many producers consider to be the dream. In this episode of the EDMProdcast, I sit down with David for a conversation that is short, sweet, and very much to the point. We discuss his methods of songwriting, workflow tips, his approach to time spent while producing, and what the future holds for WRLD. Enjoy!
What we talk about:
- How to develop a song from an idea into a full composition
- Approaching introductions and arrangements
- Mixing ‘as you go’ instead of as a separate process
- Referencing and analyzing other music to compare frequencies and stereo image
- Recreating sounds to increase your sound design proficiency
