Reliably informed

Who are you and where are you from?  
My name is Paul Tyson and I’m from North Shields.

What is it you do?  
I produce original electronic music which I self release on my own label, Turning Tide Records. 

How long have you been doing it?
I started the project around 18 months ago, which is when the first release went out on all platforms.

What inspires you?
My main inspiration comes from a bit of an addiction to learning new techniques in the studio. I had no idea how to write or produce music 18 months ago. Once I started, I got absolutely hooked on sound design, writing, mixing and mastering. The whole process is just endless in terms of how far you can take it and that really motivates me. It’s about believing where you will be in a year, or two years time and focusing on quality over quantity. I’m an ex raver, who spent a decade of Saturday’s in Shindig. I’m still obsessed with that scene, but fatherhood and generally getting old means I don’t get out as often as I would like these days. Trying to recreate that music I used to dance to is inspirational. That sound never leaves you.

Tell us about your music?
My music is fundamentally House music, with a dark melodic edge.  I love ‘musical’ dance music. I love a good vocal and try to incorporate them into most of my tracks. I worked with Medusa, another local musician on my latest track and it was great to collaborate with someone else. She did an amazing job on the track and she’s on fire with all of her projects.  

What have you got coming up in the future?
So much music to release. I should have about 15 tracks up on all of the streaming platforms by the end of the year. I’m then going to step into the world of Instagram marketing and run a campaign for 6 months to try and grow the project. I’ve been doing a lot of research on that lately and I’m excited to get that moving.
