Here’s just another reason why EDM is the most socially advanced genre going right now. If you’re a producer and have never heard of Splice, you and your other producer friends need to get in on this… right now. It’s the most convenient and user-friendly way to collaborate with other artists without the need to be in the same room. That’s right, bedroom producers can collaborate with other bedroom producers… and both can stay in their respective bedrooms! And while the service has been in private beta for the past 10 months, it is now available in public beta.
Think Google Drive for artists. As long as all producers involved are using the same DAW, they can collaborate on a project together, make edits to each other’s contributions, and communicate directly on the platform (Splice is currently compatible with Ableton Live, FL Studio, and Logic Pro X).
Who’s pumped about the potential for Splice? How about Steve Angello, Tiesto, and Scooter Braun, who have pitched in $4.5M in funding, believing that this is the future of musical collaboration. If you’re skeptical, check out this fine piece of work produced by Henry Fong (USA) and J-Trick (Australia), which is getting released on Musical Freedom (Netherlands) on 9/22:
“Scream” is the result of an intercontinental collaborative effort from Henry Fong and J-Trick, which was also presented in Splice’s newly released DNA player, which allows the listener to visualize the arrangement, plugins, samples and notes from the creators. If you want to really nerd out (like me) an get an even more detailed blueprint to see how it’s done, check this out!
We started working on the track during my first tour through Australia in July. J-Trick, who’s based in Sydney, and I were able to spend a bunch of time in the studio one day and that’s where the first ideas for “Scream” came together. After I left Australia, J-Trick and I kept sending parts back and forth over as we continued to build out the track. Something clicked a few weeks in and we are really excited about the result! - Henry Fong
