About the course
Monstercat is a new-age Record Label. Self described as an independent label, a tech startup and a media company the label has defined one of the biggest collection of cutting-edge artists and music makers in the world today. With sounds that can be categorized to include Dubstep, House, Electro-House Future Bass among others, the label has built an army of fans creating some of the most incredible events in the electronic music scene.
Born and raised in Peterborough, England, Michael Stonebank is no newcomer to electronic music. Having made an impact in various corners of the music industry, under a number of aliases, the 29 year old’s production style is as broad and colorful as his history. Stonebankis a culmination of Michael’s musical journey, influenced by the UK’s Drum & Bass and Hardcore cultures, as well as the growing complextro sub-genre.
Too often, producers confine themselves to the boundaries that define a particular genre or label. Recognizing Monstercat as a multi-genre label, Michael took the opportunity to create an all-encompassing alias, fusing elements from different genres he’s produced over the years and compiling them under one entity. Needless to say this approach paid off!
Having fine tuned his craft over the years, Stonebank is no longer confined to a specific style. Instead, he utilizes his experience to explore his creative side and continue to create the music he loves. His sound teeters the line between melodic and aggressive, offering an element of unpredictability to his productions. In his first course for FaderPro, and in proud partnership with Monstercat, Stonebank takes you on a creative start-to-finish journey creating a record from scratch that fits perfectly into the forefront sound that is Monstercat.
