Cazzette, a Swedish duo consisting of Sebastian Furrer & Alexander Björklund, first came to our attention when we were on YouTube watching a video, that wasn’t about cats for a change, of a giant cassette tape hovering above a city looking very District 9. We were pretty excited to learn that the music was made in FL Studio….
Tell us about how you got into music ?
Alex: Music has always been my biggest interest ever since I was a kid. I remember listening to it all the time and once I got older DJing came naturally to me. But just playing music was not enough. I had to make the music that was going to be played as well.
Seb: I basically started out playing the guitar and drums, but never really felt it was my ‘thing’. My dad, who was a DJ in Rome in the 80s, introduced me to Electronic music in the early stages of my life.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
Alex: I found FL online somewhere and started to play around with it. Few years after that I met Sebastian and then Ash our manager and I feel really blessed that I get to do what I do.
Seb: I believe it was late 2007 when i got introduced to FL Studio 4 by my dad, since he got the demo when he bought a new desktop computer. I got hooked instantly, and no other sequencer made sense to me. The workflow in FL is incredible, the plugins are very cool and the layout is so great. That’s important when you’re working so many hours a day!
Tell us about your production environment & toys ?
Today we work on Macbook Pros with ‘Boot Camp’ but we are really excited to try out FL for Mac when it arrives. Some of our favorite things to use within FL is the automation system, the peak controller for sidechain and the 3xosc. We use the slicer as well when we edit loops and sample vocals. External plugins that we use are Waves and Sylenth1. We also have a Virus Ti that we use if we want that really analog feel.
