Temple One, the 28 year old Trance DJ and Producer, has been gaining an increasing amount of recognition within the electronic music scene. He is consistently putting out high quality music for his listeners, and seems to be only getting better. With a booked schedule and little time to himself, we respect his efforts to set aside a piece of his schedule to catch up with us at EDM Exclusives. Here is our EDM Interview with Temple One:
When did you realize you wanted to dedicate your life towards music?
I have always had huge passion for music ever since I was young. I think at around the age of 12 the idea of working in a studio was very appealing to me so I just started building up my own from there and what started as a hobby has materialized into something much more than that.
It seems like a dream job! We know you have a full schedule, but how busy is the life of an electronic music producer actually?
Like anything, If you work hard, stay focused then the results will come, so I it’s a case of you get out what you put in. So yes, can be incredibly busy both in and out of the studio.
Thankfully we were able to get a piece of your time! How has your music grown since songs like “Love The Fear”?
You made a great point referencing your “certain sound”, it really is what makes your music, your music. What is the biggest mistake you have made in your career?
I have made a few decisions in which maybe I should of gave more thought however, I see it as a learning curve and gives you more experience for the future.
Very true, there is always a lesson to be learned. The remix you did for Rory Gallagher’s “The Sun Rises In Your Eyes” was sold to raise funds to be donated to Help for Heroes. How important is charity to you personally?
I think its very important if your in a position to help and support in any way possible then that can only be a good thing.
You certainly teach everyone a lesson in selflessness when you set aside donations for a charity. What are the major differences between the mainstream and underground electronic music scenes, in your opinion?
In the mainstream, money comes before the music. In the underground its the opposite. The underground is driven by the love of the music and any success from that is a biproduct of your passion and dedication.
Damn, I could not have said that better myself (generally speaking)! What is your favorite piece of gear to use?
I’m a huge fan of synths such as the Sylenth1, Massive VST and more recently the Spire VST. I pretty much use them in every project. I use the ‘Quadrafuzz’ plugin a lot too Its a native plugin for Cubase which can really ‘thicken’ your sounds up.
That’s some good intel, some need-to-have’s for every producer. If you could perform anywhere in the world, with any artist of all time, where would you perform and who would you perform with?
Vangelis Cafe del Mar, Ibiza. Different, but would be really cool.
I wonder how that would be. What projects are you working on right now?
Instrumentals, Remixes and a vocal follow up to ‘Together We Escape’ so a very busy studio schedule ahead!
Sounds good, sounds good! What’s the best way for your fans to reach you?
Any last words?
Just a huge thank you to everyone that’s supported me this year Really means a lot and am very much looking forward to the new year ahead!
