Tyler Knox is an Edm DJ & Producer and lives in Italy. He produces Edm Music not for money but for his enjoyment and opinions that music is one of the strongest instruments that gives so much to all of us.
It all started when he heard the live of Hardwell at Tomorrowland in 2012 and this triggered in him a series of emotions that led him to become a DJ and then a music Producer. That was how he started his trip and his dream. Tyler's first step was to download a program to mix and then to make music, mix after mix, program after program. Tyler bought his first connsolle as a DJ and from there started playing in various parties and discos. Everything he can do he learned by himself practicing hour after hour and day after day.
Over the years Tyler has created several songs and in 2018 he released his first song with an Italian record company, because he wanted it to be really curarta in every detail.

What Are or Have Been Your Musical Influences?
Once I listened only to metal music, from heavy metal to Brutal death metal, it was a world that had taken me a lot. I had even created a band, which, however, I don't hide from you, did not last long and was more an excuse to find ourselves making noise together. All this changed when I came into contact with the music of an important Italian DJ, named Franchino who with his bombs made the ground tremble, then the real step happened in 2012 when I watched a Hardwell aftermovie at Tomorrowland where with Spaceman he changed me and it created a series of emotions that made me take the road for the DJ & Producer. The only thing that really interested me was seeing people's faces with the smile on their faces during my sets. There were several musical influences such as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Garrix, DVBBS, Steve Aoki, Vicetone, W&W, Blasterjaxx and many others who contributed indirectly in my training, in fact many of them went to see them in person on their dates

What’s Your Typical Songwriting Process?
I open the DAW FL Studio and start from an area of the song, generally beginning or from the drop or breakdown which are the parts where the emotions are real and alive and first of all I start by putting down a melody and then the respective harpsichords , bassline and many other things. Of course often I happen to be without ideas or to listen to them again and to say: is this a song or a shift at the factory? . Then I start again and often the best ideas come to me when you are not even in the studio but when you are around then I hum a melody on the phone microphone and record it and then I improvise two percussions, even if those who see me think to themselves: he is crazy. But this doesn't matter because when I finally arrive in front of the PC I have a basic idea and start working on it. I spend an average of one month on each track, because there is very little free time and every evening after work I close myself in the studio and go on to the new song.
