Lives in New York, produces house music, is 19 years old and has already released two amazing EPs. Total Babe and Paradiso. (not even jealous at all)
Latest tracks by Cream Dream
Not only has he got the two Eps behind his name, he has a whole heap of edits and remixes out there. His style ranges from banging house all the way to the smoothest disco. With a back log like cream dream, he is sure to press all buttons and please the right people.
We had the chance to interrogate him and bleed him of a mixtape, check it out!
SS: yo yo, first of all. Giants or Jets?
Ahh I’m a Steelers fan but if I had to pick the Giants or the Jets, I’d go with the Gmen.
SS: Late Night No. 7, due for release on PB&J Funk Compilation on the 12th. Having heard the preview. Your sound is getting huge and maturing nicely. Are we expecting a new Ep anytime soon?
Thanks! Yes, I’m currently in the process of working on a full length album due out late Spring 2012… I cant give much more info than that but I can say I’m collaborating with 2 good friends and producers on some tracks, really exciting stuff! I’m also planning to release a small EP before that, hopefully in a month or two.
SS: What goes into the process of creating a cream dream track?
I can’t say theres a specific process really, it depends on the particular track at the time. Since my songs rely on sampling, usually cutting up a sample I like is the first step. That process can be the easiest or the hardest, I’ve had samples ready almost immediately and some take tons of time. After that, I program drums and other elements I think would work together for a track. Then, the most important step for me is playing it all out on my APC20, its basically a live session where I get to feel how each element works together and which ones do not. At the end of it all I take the best sounding bits and make it a track!
SS: You remind me of an early Bob Sinclar, partically his album Paradise. Who are your biggest influences?
I pretty much grew up listening to that whole french house scene including Bob Sinclair, Daft Punk, Phoenix, Alan Braxe, Benjamin Diamond, Air, etc. So all those guys have a special place in my heart but I’m also influenced by artists like Aphex Twin, The Neptunes and Pete Rock. Also my family and friends provide a great deal of inspiration for me!
SS: Have you delved into much of the Analogue world, or do you prefer making your tracks with the ease of the Digital world?
Unfortunately, not yet. I have an appreciation for the Analogue world but at this time I don’t have money to afford the equipment hahaha
SS: Favourite VST?
I try to stick to Ableton’s built in plugins for EQing and effects, the only VST I use is Ozone 5 which is great for mastering.
SS: What gear are you running?
13″ Macbook Pro, Ableton Live 8, APC20 and an X-Session Pro.
SS: Have You been shopping around for any Labels?
Yep, I have a new track, Niltsuh’, that Ive sent to some labels and artists. No reply yet but fingers crossed!
SS: Being underage, are you and your buddies responsible for any of the crazy warehouse parties?
Hahaha no warehouse parties yet but we throw pretty wild house parties regularly.
SS: Any gigs/tours lined up?
I’m currently in the process of working with a agency to start playing in New York City and other places for next year.
