SEE HOW

RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW LONDON ARTIST SEE HOW

What made you decide that music is a thing for you?

I’ve been making music since I was 4 or 5, so I don’t think I chose it – it chose me!

Introduce us to you and your musical history.

I’m See How, a UK music producer living in the leafy Hertfordshire / Bedfordshire border. I’ve been producing music as part of Paris Opera House for the past 11 years but decided to launch my solo project this year after some soul-searching and a few false starts.

What was the first song you heard that steered you into a music path?

Plug In Baby by Muse started my unhealthy obsession with the band (which ended shortly after Absolution…) and so I taught myself guitar, and piano and started singing. After playing in loads of bands, it was only in my twenties that I started getting more into electronic music, and it took me a really long time after that to realise that I’m naturally more of a producer than a performer/singer-songwriter. So yeah, Muse are to blame 🙂

Where do you feel you currently sit within the music industry?

On the lap of Mura Masa, squashed between Overmono and Fred again.

Tell us two truths and a lie about you.

I appeared on Hollyoaks, as myself. I spent 2 hours in a taxi with Banksy, without realising it was him. I performed in a band with Jay from the Inbetweeners.

If you could wish for one thing to aid your career what would it be?

A therapist.

SEE HOW

What was the worst experience on stage?

Performing solo with a guitar, unable to hear anything, it started raining on me and the equipment, my hands were frozen and a string snapped halfway through. Car crash.

What makes you stand out as a band/artist?

I’m fairly eclectic in my taste, and that’s reflected in my sound. I’m not sure you could pin me down to one style, because I serve whatever the song needs, whether it’s hip-hop, garage or house.

I hear you have new music, what can you tell us about it.

My new single is called Beautiful Dreamer. It’s a big, sweeping, cinematic future house track that reminds me of classics like Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve, or Cassius’ I <3 U SO. It’s the third track I’ve released as See How, and it showcases another aspect of my sound; something bigger and full of drama.

What was the recording process like?

This is an unusual one because the sounds you hear at the start are actually the end of a different, unreleased track. But this track took on a life of its own and became its own thing. Like most of my productions, it’s a patchwork of samples, mixing and matching sounds and twisting them to fit together. Towards the end of the process, I realised the track somehow made me think of an underwater world, so I leaned into that and added effects to make the track bubble and submerge itself – something that’s reflected in the artwork.

Would you change anything now it’s finished?

I’d be interested to do a more stripped-back mix, something in the style of Overmono, ATRIP or Bicep.

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

Peace and love. Thanks for having me ツ
