Jaytech on the Importance of a Professional Mindset & the Top-Down Mix Approach

Sam MatlaPodcast%s Comments

 

Who is Jaytech? It’s hard to know where to begin.

He started out as a classically trained pianist, entering and winning various competitions as a child before being introduced to the world of electronic music.

At age 16, he had his first vinyl release.

14 years later, he’s released 3 artist albums, toured the world, had releases on key labels, and worked with many different artists.

He’s one of my favorite producers, and due to that, this is one of my favorite episodes to date.
