If you’re not familiar with Hekler at this point I feel sorry for you. His sounds are some of the most unique and mind blowing of any artist out right now. It’s not just me who feels that way, ask Borgore, who hand selected him for Buygore’s latest fresh blood release. I’ve played tracks in the car to virgin Hekler listening ears and reactions are ALWAYS priceless. you’ll hear people literally yell, “WTFFFF!” & “OMGGG!” ‘What did I just hear, I need more!’
The man’s sound design is crazy, each drop trickling its way into your pores and causing your hair to stand on end; his tracks ooze energy. With sound design like this I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to try and get him to open up about the process! It’s not too often I come across a new producer that makes me want to meticulously follow each release.
His eerie hybrid take on bass music is unparalleled but sure to be imitated as producers from all over struggle to keep up with something so fresh and unique. After playing sets at EDC and furthering his already rapidly growing fanbase, Hekler is on the rise and we see no signs of slowing down.
We’re proud to bring you this exclusive interview with him and the second volume in our “In The DMs, Interview series” as he opens up about personal struggles in his growth and reveals only a little about production.
