4 new packs from DJ Puzzle 🎉 🗣🔥

Expand your horizons with Industrial Soundscapes

This week, DJ Puzzle is back with another set of sounds. We're introducing a new genre to the Content Store: Industrial. The inspiration for these packs were a combination of classic industrial music and modern suspense films. This collection of sounds gives you vibes from artists including NIN, Front Line Assembly, and Skinny Puppy to name a few. You won’t want to miss this brand new genre.  Be sure to check out Industrial Soundscapes, Volumes 1, 2, and 3. We're also releasing LoFi Hip Hop, along with a DJ Puzzle interview.

Hear From the Producer

We sat down with DJ Puzzle and talked music, babies, catfish, ACID Pro and what's he been up to this past year.

@Retronyms: Tell us about an event you performed at that went well this last year?
@DJ Puzzle: I haven't had any performances recently I've been focusing my energy on a few production projects including a new loop pack for Magix (new owners of Acid Pro 8) which is scheduled for a big re-launch of the Acid Pro product line very soon. Also stoked to get my first movie trailer but I can't disclose the information on that just yet. Polygon a very popular video game site just featured several of my tunes in their Waluigi playlist on Youtube last week that was a lot of fun :) Lots of cool production projects and TV placements happening this year! Some of the new loops were even used on the MTV show Catfish!

@Retronyms: You just released a song called Low Key Hip Hop Beats #FAWM 2018, can you tell us more about what inspired this song: 
@DJ Puzzle: That song Low Key Hip Hop is a preview of  my new loop pack for Magix. Long story short in the late 90s Sonic Foundry released a revolutionary software product called Acid Pro. Back then there was nothing like it, no Ableton Live etc. I got a job working there editing their loop packages and then two years later left the company to start my own loop company. I did not burn any bridges so they actually hired me as a freelance producer and I produced I believe 14 loop packs for them over the years. They sold the software to Sony and then Sony recently sold it to Magix. Magix contacted me and said we hear you are THE guy to produce content for ACID Pro and we want to hire you for a big re-launch. Of course I was stoked and said yeah it's like 1998 all over again lol. Not to bore you with this sorry I just think the story is interesting how something that change my life in the late 90s has come full circle to spread more love.

@Retronyms: How do you manage to keep balance in your life? 
@DJ Puzzle: Balancing my life these days is more challenging than ever because I just had my first kid. A little girl , Maya. Both my wife and I are both entrepreneurs we run our own businesses and work from home so juggling work with parenting is very difficult mainly because we're both home. My studio is at home as well so there is no leaving for 8 hours and coming home after a long day of work lol This is great for baby though she has two parents when she needs us. Honestly though I've been in the music biz for 20 years now working as a professional so I'm pretty fast. When I have a contract with a deadline I can write 1-2 songs per day no problem. This typically takes 2-4 hours to write and produce them. Of course I'll revisit them a day or two later for a fresh perspective. 

Stay tuned for more from DJ Puzzle! Keep updated on all of his adventures on his website, where he posts about what he's created.
