Who are you, and what do you do?

My name is Estefan Saucedo and I produce electronic music. I am currently a student at UW-Madison. I am majoring in Economics and International Business. Music and school are what my life is mainly about. I dedicated most of my time to these activities. I love school, but making music offers me an escape that nothing else can. Right now I am polishing my tracks and getting a release schedule together with my manager. We finalized my stage name as Amiré. I am essentially putting the finishing touches to what will be the beginning of my career as a producer and DJ.

What forms of media have influenced you the most?

The forms of media that have influenced me the most are: The internet, and books. To be more specific, videos on the internet have impacted my life heavily. I learned everything I know about music production from YouTube videos. I owe my knowledge of production and djing to the internet. A book that has really influenced me is “Do Cool Sh*t” by Miki Agrawal. It has inspired me to keep chasing my dreams.

What hardware / software do you use?

In terms of software and hardware, I like to think that I am very minimalistic. I have a MacBook Pro with Logic 9 and Logic X. I use these programs for music production. I have an M-Audio Midi keyboard that I used to input the notes into those programs. My favorite pieces of VST software are Sylenth1 and Spire. In terms of djing I use a Traktor S2 but I am looking to buy the Traktor S8 very soon, since I enjoy digital djing.

What would be your dream creative setup?

My macbook hooked up to a 28 inch monitor, a midi fighter 3D, the new Serum VST by Xfer, a pair of Rokit 10 speakers, a desk that is made for music production and of course the Traktor S8. I would keep everything else the same.
