This month I spoke to ROLI about my creative process and advice for fellow creators and producers. I have been a big fan of their Seaboard, Equator plug-in and Blocks (which I used during my live stream at the New York Times last year and definitely recommend aspiring producers to check out their Noise app for i-OS.

ROLI has launched Start Making It, a new initiative to inspire, entertain and support aspiring music creators to do more in 2018. They say that, whether you’re a complete beginner looking to take your first step making music, or already creating but want to improve your skills, it’s easier than you think to Start Making It. Here’s the ROLI press release:
Every musician had to start somewhere. So ROLI spoke to musicians — from established artists to up-and-coming stars of the future — to discover how they find inspiration, overcome obstacles and discover their own distinct musical voice.
Madame Gandhi, the boundary-breaking electronic artist, activist and former drummer for M.I.A., explains how important it is to trust in your own voice and clear the mental space to tap into your authentic inner-self.
“It takes a lot of self-confidence to trust my own intuition and believe in my own ear. At my shows I sell merch that says ‘Own your voice’, which is a message for marginalized communities, and for young women who are conditioned in this era of #MeToo to not speak up or trust our own voice. But if something sounds good to you, it’s perfect,” said Madame Gandhi.
