Tell us about how yourself?
Hi! I'm Owen Norton a DJ/ Producer from the UK! You may know me from my official remixes for The Chainsmokers and Marshmello, or from my original tracks like 'Talk To Me' and 'Name Me'.
How did you get into music?
I've been producing music for around 7 years now, initially got into it as I had an interest in DJing, and wanted to take it to the next level producing my own songs that I could play.
Tell us about your plans
So I just released 2 remixes in February, one for The Chainsmokers and one for Selena and Marshmello. I'm super happy with the support and response on them so far, and can't wait to release some of the new original tracks I've been working on in the studio. I've got a ton of tracks coming up, some different to my usual stuff, and some more aggressive clubs songs that my older fans discovered me for. Either way, I've got a lot of new music coming, hopefully something for everyone!
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
I remember seeing videos of producers online using FL Studio to produce their music, so I downloaded it and started playing around with it! Luckily I know my way round the software a lot more than I did at the start haha, and I'm able to work out an idea in no time. I really like how fast the piano roll is, making it really easy to draw in a melody I have in my head, and then I've built up my own preset and sample banks over the years that are easily accessible. FL Studio works really well for me, and I can't ever see myself using any other DAW.
Tell us about your production environment & toys?
I'm producing at the moment on my MacBook Pro with Bootcamp. This works best for me as I can produce music when travelling, and also plug my laptop into my studio at home. My studio setup is super simplistic, just a pair of monitors and a computer setup, but thats perfect because when I'm in there I can detach myself from the world and just focus on music. I love it!
