5 insights from Wave Racer’s Reddit AMA
In 2017, Sydney, Australia’s Wave Racer did what few globally touring acts dare to do at the height of their success: step back from touring in the name of well-being. Now, having spent time to recharge, both personally and artistically, the future-bass producer succeeds his first two singles in years by opening up to fans in a Reddit AMA.
Donned as an OG titan of the genre, Wave Racer shares insight into his creative songwriting process, his handling of a track/project that just won’t unfold, and a bit of technical geek-ery for producer folk. Last, and arguably most noteworthy are Wave Racer’s takes on shifting to productions with more pop-style vocals and his growing intrigue to tour with a live band.
