The Chainsmokers – Young (k?d Remix)

Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.

I am a Polish music producer and DJ based in Miami, Florida who goes by the name “k?d” (pronounced “Kid”). I’ve been into music ever since I can remember (especially dance music). I also attended band class all throughout middle school before I ever learned about music production software.

How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?

I started producing music when I was 14 years old — a month before I started high school. I always wanted to produce music when I was younger but I did not know how, until one day, I stumbled across a YouTube video of someone showcasing their song on FL Studio. I knew instantly then and there that this was what I had been looking for this whole time. I downloaded the demo of FL Studio and started trying to produce as soon as I could. The next day, I begged my mother to purchase a copy for me. She eventually gave in and purchased a copy of the Fruity Edition of FL Studio 9. After months of production, I later upgraded to Producer Edition and it all snowballed from there. I’ve been dedicated to FL Studio ever since and am glad I started on this DAW.

Tell us about your work and some of the artists you have worked with.

My work can mainly be described as Future Bass music, but I would also say that I am a multi-genre producer. I’ve worked with many artists such as Rezz, Steve Aoki, Wolfgang Gartner, and Kayzo.

Tell us about your production environment and the gear you use.

I am very much a bedroom producer — I prefer to work at home on my desktop computer. I like to keep it simple, so I don’t use much gear aside from a Volt interface, Genelec speakers, and Sennheiser HD 660S headphones.

What is your top FL Studio tip for up-and-coming producers?

One of my top tips when it comes to music production would be to not over complicate your production process. As I get older, I find myself trying to simplify my music production, and it makes creating music so much more enjoyable. Sampling has been something I’ve been experimenting with a lot more now and I can see why so many of the greatest producers use it so frequently.
