And that's a fact. I've always liked EDM and all of its subgenres. My favourites definitely are hardbass, hardcore and happy hardcore. I like techno, glitch hop, psytrance, speedcore, dubstep and others, too.
One day I was bored, so I looked up something like "how to create music for free" on Google (at that time I didn't even know what "free software" and "privacy" meant) and I found a couple tutorials that helped me getting started. I created a song called "Heartbeat", look it up, I challenge you to find it. It wasn't very good, but it was my real first music attempt.
Time passed and I totally forgot about this hobby of mine.
In late 2021, though, I once again happened to feel bored, so I decided to fire up LMMS in my Void GNU/Linux setup and start making some hardbass just to flex upon my friends. And that's how I got into music production. I produce it under the pen name "MirkoDiTV".
My tracks are DRM-free, usually licensed CC-BY-3.0, and available on multiple platforms. Here's a complete list:
You can also find my music on the following proprietary websites, which unfortunately impose DRM (see Defective by Design):
My DAW of choice is LMMS. It is free software. Sometimes I also use Ardour, but I personally am too lazy to learn JACK.
I usually combine multiple genres in one, creating unique (and, why not, "weird") tracks that can't really be identified by a "music genre" tag. That said though, all of my songs can easily be classified as EDM.
I do music just for fun, nothing serious, thus, I will not be producing more than one song a month, at least not anytime soon.
I like fast music, and by fast I mean at least 140 BPM, preferably from 175 to 999 BPM. Other elements that make me like a song, are kick, powerful ones, and drops (of course, everybody likes a good drop).
My main inspiration sources, when it comes to hardbass, are the talented Hard Bass School duo, Davay and DJ Blyatman. S3RL, TheFatRat, OMFG, Technikore, Razihel, Skrillex and Goblins from Mars also really changed the way I see, listen to and produce music.
My music is free/libre! The music itself and its source (DAW projects, vocals, cover art and sometimes [for unfortunate third-party non-free licensing reasons] samples) are completely free (as in freedom). Guess you could say my music is "open source", lol.
Every song I make gets its own Git repo at https://git.mirkodi.eu.
