POST 100 – Collaboration Is My Motivation

This week’s Saturday blog post is from collective member KNØTZ. See what he’s got going on!

Hey ladies and germs,

Firstly, if you’re reading this, I want to thank you for taking the time to get over to the WhiteNoiize blog. We post a lot on this page- (We just hit 100 posts!) and not everyone always makes it over here so THANK YOU! I’m writing this blog post to talk a little bit about what I have going on, but more importantly– why collaboration is so important.

There’s the old saying “It takes a village” when it comes to raising a child, but I feel like the same idea can go to just growing as an artist in general. I created my KNOTZ brand almost two years ago. Just a baby to the scene, I started going out and about to different shows around the town. It didn’t take long for me to meet all kinds of amazingly talented people who began to influence my work. Everything from DJ’s, producers, promoters, even the people attending the event all began to shape who I was becoming as an artist. Then, back in February, I decided to partner up with SJPJ to create WhiteNoiize.

WhiteNoiize is supposed to be an outlet for collaboration and community. To showcase the amazing talents all around us and give each other a voice. From the get-go, the community outreach and support of WhiteNoiize has been nothing but amazing. Every month it seems to grow exponentially! We’ve gotten to meet so many talented people and showcase their work, all within our first year.

Recently, I decided to further my collaboration efforts and began to work on my first huge release “Trying” with my buddy Mark (Disaiple). He was the first person to teach me the basics of producing (and is STILL teaching me things). This track was such a big deal for me because of how many firsts it was. First time collabing on a track, first time singing on a track that I wrote, first time making a future bass release. The track came out better than I could have expected and the support from the community is still blowing my mind.

Now, I’m excited to be releasing the stems for my new track to you guys! I’ll be putting together a remix album with some talent from the community. You can download the stems below. All submissions are due by SEPTEMBER 1ST. Please email your remixes as a private link to knotz.music1@gmail.com to be considered for the album! Expect for the album to come out around SEPTEMBER 30TH.

Collaboration is so important. From working on music with each other, to just spreading ideas, collaboration can bring the best out of everyone. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. That’s what we did with WhiteNoiize and now look! We’ve got our own little Village now!

To end off this post, I’m announcing my new release coming MONDAY, JULY 31ST. The track is entitled “Clowning Around”  and was actually a three-way collab between Houston locals (and previous WhiteNoiize guest artists) XWIRE & MAEL. Be on the lookout for this new track! As always, thank you for the support, and don’t forget to support each other!!!!

POST 098 – “Trying” by KNØTZ and DISAIPLE – OUT NOW

KNØTZ: This track is a lot of firsts for me. My first time writing lyrics for a song I’ve produced. My first time collaborating with someone on a track. My first future bass track AND the first track I’ve ever sang on. It’s a song about learning when to let go. Hope this resonates with some of you! ❤

DISAIPLE: First major collab with my buddy KNØTZ, who I taught the basics of producing only two years ago.

POST 063 – “Activation” by KNØTZ is OUT NOW

“This track was a fun one for me to make. I tried some new production techniques and worked on expanding on things I already know. Still in my ‘baby’ stages as a producer, I feel like ‘Activation’ marks the start of bigger things. Can only grow from here!”

POST 019 – Jumping Into Music Production

Each week, we leave Saturday open for a blog post about some of the things on our mind here at WhiteNoiize. This weeks post is about “Jumping Into Music Production” by KNØTZ.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about for my blog post this week. There are so many topics I felt like I could cover but couldn’t quite set myself on a topic. I figured music production was a topic a lot of people are interested in and maybe I could give my two cents on the matter. I’m calling this “Jumping Into Music Production” because I’m going to focus on the “where to go and what to do” of getting started. There are SO many elements when it comes to producing. Sound Design, samples, effects, plug-ins, which DAW to use etc. etc. Here are some common questions and my answers to them.
