Check out our interview with Ken Bauer:
So – who’s Ken Bauer?
I learned playing the piano when I was a kid. I was active in the Atari/Amiga tracker scene back in the days and a few years later I started teaching digital music production for artists. It wasn’t until 2015 that I produced and released my own track, I did it mostly for fun. I was really surprised to see the national Swedish radio picking it up as it was one of the most downloaded tracks a few weeks after it got released. This inspired me to start producing music seriously and several of my tracks have already been featured on both Swedish and international radio with heavyweight DJ support as well so I’m really proud of that.
How long have you been making music?
I have been making music as long as I can remember since I got my first hardware synth when I was kid. However, it wasn’t until 2015 I started to release tracks professionally and commercially.
What makes your style unique?
I have always tried to blend different genres as I don’t want to stick to just one formula. I started out blending Big Room, Electro & Progressive House but now I am evolving more towards Future House/Trance. Sticking to a tempo of 126-128 BPM.
Who are your biggest influences and why?
Eric Prydz, because he is the master of long and powerful build ups. I got a bootleg remix from a mutual friend of Snap vs Motivo – I’ve Got The Power featuring a 2 minute and 45 second build up before the track even started which totally blew me away. Then I have to say Armin Van Buuren. Even though I produce a lot of House music I listen a lot to melodic Trance.
Where do you see you and your music going?
I see myself moving to Future Trance which could best be described as a blend between Future house, Progressive House and Trance music but I am still having a hard time leaving out my earlier harder sound.
Describe in one word the ‘Ken Bauer’ sound?
Well, the reviewers and press are referring to my tracks as having the true “Ken Bauer” sound so why change it? Even though it is technically two words.
What can we expect from you in the future?
I actually have plenty of tracks coming up on several genre defining labels including my own.
Finally – what song have you been playing most lately?
According to my Spotify statistics it is the Tom Staar remix of Thing For You by David Guetta & Martin Solveig.
