Firstly, briefly introduce yourself.
Ryan Hemsworth, from Earth. My style is impetuous. My defence is impregnable and I’m just ferocious.

What would you say are the most popular songs you’ve created?
My most unpopular songs are probably: this cover I made of The Smiths’ ‘Girlfriend in a Coma’ or a seven minute medley I once made from as many classic Nintendo themes as I could, but with really abrasive synthesisers.

What is your favourite song you’ve worked on and why?
Maybe ‘Cream Soda’ with my friend Tomggg. It just ended up so bright and happy, it seems to make people enjoy life for the duration of the song, which is all I could ask for.

Do you think that production software becoming more accessible to just anyone is a good or bad thing for music?
Both. It’s giving tools to amazing artists who might not have had the means to create, record, produce and release music before. That also opens the floodgates to any person who wants to take a crack at being a superstar producer DJ. But in the end it makes it all the more exciting to find great music when you do.

What influences you as a producer?
Birds that are obsessed with mirrors.
