Danish headphone brand, AIAIAI, have released the second episode in their new short film series, ‘My Process With… DJ Zinc’. An exclusive insight into some of today’s leading musical talents, ‘My Process’ launched in January 2021 with the multi-award-winning saxophonist and composer Nubya Garcia.
‘My Process With… DJ Zinc’ takes viewers deep into the art of music creation, and what for Zinc is the ‘perfect breakbeat’. He reveals the secrets of his signature style and how he combines leading modern technology with years of experience and old school know-how, citing how he created some of his biggest records with “just a laptop, a pair of headphones and a good idea”. Zinc talks honestly about his approach to music making, with plenty of advice and tips for up and coming producers and artists.
In his ‘My Process…’, Zinc shows how he creates authentic sounds – once made on expensive and cumbersome hardware during the rise of jungle and drum & bass – with a contemporary edge. Zinc believes that with the technology now available to music makers there are simply “no excuses” and to demonstrate how a previously high entry barrier to music production has been removed, the film shows him leaving the comfort of his studio to give his tutorial on a laptop in a local London café.
