Sam Matla on Starting a Business, His Most Influential Books, and Building Success as an Artist

A few weeks ago, my friend Serik (aka Hyperbits) reached out to me and proposed an idea: what if he interviewed me on the EDMProdcast?

I loved the idea.

So for this episode, I’m the one in the hot seat. We talk about a range of topics, such as my background, how and why I started EDMProd, my favorite books, my daily routine, and much more.

This episode is brought to you by EDM Foundations.

EDM Foundations is my course for new producers, those who’ve been producing for under 12 months, or even those who’ve just started. You can learn more about it here.

The whole idea of the EDM Foundations course is that you learn the fundamentals of music production by actually doing and not just learning concepts. The course consists of 12+ hours worth of streamable video where I walk you through the creation of 3 songs, and give you advice for creating your own original.

We’ve had over 600 people sign up for the course, many of them have had great results. Hope to see you in there.
