We had the good fortune of connecting with A . Swain & Lipe ProducedbyNWP and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi A . Swain & Lipe, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
For us ProducedbyNWP came to life once we had let a couple of our artists out of their deals . We decided it was time to start our own thing as a co-production duo & show the world what we can do. We met at a Panera Bread Co in 2015 and made the decision. We began building our music catalog & later that year released our first single “A thousand Likes “ distributed by Sony Music the orchard . We knew we had something special from there .
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Being a producer takes a lot of work from finding the right sounds , mixing , blending those sounds . We spend hours downloading new drum kits , to create the biggest sound possible for our tracks . We love the challenge of producing multiple genres from Pop , R&B & Hip Hop effectively. Being able to adjust with the times as well always have to stay current . Because when you’ve been around music for a long time it’s easy to get stuck in a certain direction or sound , but we have been able to stay current with what’s going on in music no matter the year or what’s currently “in” we have that sound for everybody. We believe we can produce music for anybody in the world . Our sound is a blend of what’s going on, what’s “popular “ but we do it our own way. Which is different from others . We are unique in our own way. We are excited to show that in our upcoming album that we are working on releasing! We will be showcasing our production in different ways working with artists from different genres that we’ve come across over the last 7 years .
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We live in two different areas Aswain is in Orange County Irvine area & Lipe lives in the Los Angeles area . There are spots around Newport Beach , Restaurants along the beach Swain likes to take people there. Great vibes and great food . In LA Lipe recommends Grand Central Market. Which is a mixture of restaurants all in one place . Plenty of different things to try. Great food and service . It’s right in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles . There’s bars around , live music . Plenty to do !
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We want to shout out Mitch Dudley head of management at Sony The Orchard for believing in our vision. Giving us a platform to continue to release music on major markets. Big reason we are able to still do things a certain way , thank you to the whole Orchard team . Thank you for wanting to partner with us . We are grateful!
