Jakob Möller is a German music producer who regularly researches new genres. Living in Mannheim, he is mainly active in online production. Studying in a dual curriculum in Business Information Technology as well as being a freelance Producer, Jakob always lives up to the moment and tries to get as much time out of a day as possible. Since he is fairly young, 19 years old only, he only started to make his way up!
We are sharing our recent interview with him.
Pro Media Mag : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
Jakob Möller : Well, I started doing Music in the DAW about a year ago. Honestly, that was more like a “rough” start into producing. I couldn’t handle sound design at all. I was playing an electric bass before so I knew music theory and my hearing was okay though. Well, to keep things short: I am now, after hours of practice, sitting here, still trying improve my work where I can. But it pretty much started like with every hobby. Lots and lots of time.
Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Jakob Möller : The first time I saw big producers like Armin van Buuren doing their thing I was hooked. The harmonies and the emotions the big ones can deliver to their listeners is just… mind blowing. I love to have that too but I still have a long way to go.
Pro Media Mag : Tell us about your recent work?
Jakob Möller : I just recently was in the studio again working on a more clubby Track, It is still in production though. Also I am currently working on my album. As a new Artist, promoting your brand also qualifies for work I guess. I wish I could spend more time focusing on music honestly.
Pro Media Mag : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
Jakob Möller : The mood and the feel of a stage performance is intense, don’t get me wrong. However, studio work has perks too. I love being able to closely listen into my sound and focus on every detail. That’s where I can focus the most on what matters.
Pro Media Mag : Since you have been researching new genres. Which of these you really liked?
Jakob Möller : Honestly, this is maybe the toughest question of them all. Since I am currently trying to find new Genres and especially to get into my “sweet” spot, I really cannot favor any genre at all. However, everything heavily electronic such as House, Electro, EDM and all of their Variations is my love. I am sure I will still develop in that aspect.
Pro Media Mag : Have you set some target to achieve as a music producer?
Jakob Möller : Someday I want to be a producer people come to because they like my music. I don’t have crazy expectations except that I really want People to enjoy my stuff. If they feel an emotion with the song, whatever kind, I have achieved my goal already.
Pro Media Mag : Are you going to go for this as your profession?
Jakob Möller : This currently is up for debate. I am studying a dual curriculum in Business Information Technology, not really related to music. But IT is my second passion so I really want to keep going there as well. The latest hobby project is developing a website for my Music, so I can share it on an own platform!
I do not have the following yet to go as a full time producer. However, if that opportunity arises, who knows. I am always open for anything!
