Rob Gasser and The Brig go into more detail about their new emotionally charged single “Take A Fall”. Take a look at this interesting interview and learn more about them.
1 — First of all, what led you to make electronic music?
The Brig: In my childhood, I listened to a lot of electronic music. Basically Eurodance, Trance music. In 2003, I started trying to create my own tracks in these styles, using FL Studio and Reason. After 10 years, I began experimenting with styles and chose my main style; dubstep.
Rob Gasser: I first heard electronic music online on YouTube and I was immediately hooked and wanted to learn how to make it. It took me a while to get into it, but luckily I had found tutorials on YouTube to help me get started.
2 — Did you ever have another career path you wanted to pursue?
The Brig: A couple of years ago I worked as a sales manager, but now I only concentrate on music. Most of all I like to create music and I do not want that to change.
Rob Gasser: As far as I’m aware, not really!
3 — What was it like working together on your new single “Take A Fall”?
The Brig: Working as a team was an excellent experience. We did not have any problems agreeing on the final version of the track. All of us made an equal contribution. I would like to thank Rob and Ashley and I hope to work with them again in the future.
Rob Gasser: Working with The Brig was a great experience! He’s a talented producer and he always knows how to improve on my ideas & turn them into something completely different and fresh.
4 — What was the most challenging part in producing it?
The Brig: Perhaps the most difficult part was creating an idea. The arrangement and mastering happened quickly.
Rob Gasser: I think this was one of the smoothest projects I’ve done in a while, no complaints here. I suppose starting the project was the hardest part.
5 — Can you imagine how different the song would sound without Ashley Apollodor’s vocals?
The Brig: It would be a completely different track. Ashley’s vocal is unique, and I would not want to separate it from the track.
Rob Gasser: Ashley’s powerful vocals definitely made the track what it is today, so I can’t imagine Take A Fall being Take A Fall without her vocals.
6 — Why does chopping up vocals are so popular now?
The Brig: Most often for trends, you have to create something new. Chopping up vocals is a great way to get a new special sound.
Rob Gasser: I definitely think Skrillex had a lot to do with popularizing the sound (his vocal chops are still some of the best out there.) I personally love them because you essentially turn the human voice into a completely different sounding instrument.
7 — Are you planning to release remixes for “Take A Fall”?
The Brig: Of course, now there’s a remix contest for this track so we’ll have a lot of them.
Rob Gasser: Yes! We’re currently running a remix competition.
8 — If you were to release a new track together, what would you title it and how does that will sound?
The Brig: To name a track, you must first create a track, so I cannot say. But the track would sound great.
Rob Gasser: We may or may not have already started more stuff together, all info will be revealed in due time 😉 But usually the track title doesn’t come into play until we have a solid idea going.
9 — Is there something you love or hate about the current EDM scene?
The Brig: The EDM scene now is good but I would like to see more artists with a unique sound.
Rob Gasser: There’s definitely a lot of innovation going on, which I love!
10 — Finally, how do you see yourselves in 10 years?
The Brig: I see myself as a successful DJ and musician who will travel the world.
Rob Gasser: Hopefully still making music!
