Collaboration stories: Vigilante

Vigilante is a music producer from London, UK, who has been collaborating with creatives all over the world and his collaborations have been staff picked 3 times. In this interview, he tells us about his background, who he’s worked with on Twine and gives some on advice on how to find people to collaborate with.

What are your musical background and influences?

“I grew up listening to my older brothers hip hop vinyls & CDs. He was really into the East Coast stuff. I took a liking to anything produced by Pete Rock and make mix cassettes. I like to think my style is a mixture between east coast him hop, my influences growing up in East London when grime was rising to prominence and my interests in anime & comics. I made some early tracks with a really, really bad PC & free software which I believed helped develop my creativity.”

Who have you been working with on Twine?

“Twine has become my go to site to connect with other artists who are serious about collaborations. I will have a look on he notice boards and try and connect with anyone I like. I’ve also had a lot of messages from artists wanting to work with me. I’ve done a couple of songs with Androck and A few with Sahjon and just had a 4 track EP drop by HeyeRule. Twine makes it easy and convenient to connect with likeminded artists in any country and a great platform to showcase your material. I recently begun working with an artist named Veda and sent her over a track which I can’t wait to share with everyone. I haven’t done much work with singers, but I’m excited about this one as she has awesome vocals.”

What’s the best way to find people to work with on Twine?

I try to have as many projects going at once as the pressure seems to bring out the best in me. I have a lot of material I’m sitting on & will continue to use Twine to find the best talent out there.
