Tape Notes

By In The Woods

TN:72 Rostam

Tuesday, 8 June

In this episode, John catches up with Rostam to talk about how he wrote, recorded and produced his new album ‘Changephobia’.

Giving us a full tour, Rostam talks us through his incredibly varied songwriting processes, from demoing beats on a Japanese bullet train and jamming with the TV, to improvising parts in the studio and simply writing without his brain. 

Going in deep, we’re treated to beat constructions, reverb breakdowns and sax playing that is just all feel, all alongside the subtle sounds that completely transform the emotion in a track.

Listen to find out which plugin changed the way he thinks about recording vocals, why clarity can sometimes completely destroy a vibe, and how to treat an addiction to groove.

Tracks discussed: From The Back of a Cab, 4Runner, Starlight
