Carl Allen is a Birmingham born Musician who has been DJing and Producing Music since he was 16 …
Carl’s musical interests began at school at the age of 13 (2000) where he learned how to play the Drums – a hobby he continued for several years.
Carl’s passion for music grew, he found an interest in Music Technology and began listening – Mixing UKG, Speed Garage and Drum n Bass.
After a couple of years perfecting his mixing on Internet Radio stations and club-performances, Carl began to take an interest in producing his own music, by this time Speed Garage had evolved into 4×4 – Bassline, at this point Carl began to use a DAW ( Digital Audio Workstation ) to compose his music in Reason 3.
In 2008 whilst working full time, Carl completed an Extended Diploma – Music Technology, in College – using Cubase.
Unfortunately, there were little opportunities after the course finished which meant that he had to practice alone at home to expand his skills, in order to make his tracks stand out.
Over the years Carl has made many tracks – but due to his very strict self-critical attitude, never really pushed his older music.
Lately though, as his confidence has grown, he’s released some of his newer music under a separate alias ‘Frequenetix’, such as ” Take Control E.P Featuring Samantha Edwards ” of which he wrote the lyrics to.
The E.P was mainly a Bassline release, but also featured his Garage remix, a House & Bass version ‘Deckstar’, a 4X4 version ‘VeeO’, aka Steve Brooke and a Speed Garage version ‘Roger J’.
Carl also produced a very popular and underrated UK Garage remix of’Latch’ from Disclosure and a remix of ‘Language’ from Porter Robinson – tracks which were released as a free download.
Now utilizing Reason 7, his production technique is much-improved, so Carl is delving into Drum and Bass aswell.
Carl’s latest work is a Liquid Drum and Bass piece called ‘Live Another Day’ Featuring Kymberley Myles, Popular for the Speed Garage hit ‘Give it to me’ & ‘We got a love’.
Again, Carl wrote the lyrics to ‘Live Another Day’ and after sending it off for mastering, It was immediately snapped up by Audio Animals Label in London and is due release shortly (See sample below).
Carl is currently working on several new ideas (Producing and Writing) in the Garage, House and Drum and Bass genres and has a massive determination to succeed in the Music Industry.
