Catching up with FRQ NCY at his end of the spectrum
One man making definite moves within the halftime scene this year. We had a chat with FRQ NCY to get some info on his recent releases & favourite beats.
Tell us a bit about yourself, how long have you been producing? what’s your background?
“I've been producing around 6 years now. When I was younger I started playing drums and was addicted immediately. The same thing happened when my friend introduced me to FL studio, although I use Ableton now.“
You recently released an EP on Sound Museum, you have quite a distinct sound, what kind of synthesizers & techniques do you use in your process?
“I use Serum ALL the time. I've used it since it's been released and just stuck to it as my main plugin. I also have my analog 0-coast, which I'll sample and use in almost all of my tunes. Other than that sine compression has been something I've used a lot lately. Frequent has an awesome video about that on YouTube. I think Jade Cicada also has one.“
