004 - Jeff Rona's advice for Dance Music Producers wanting to Compose Film Music
Jeff Rona has seen it and done it all in Hollywood. From working with Hans Zimmer on scores such as Mission:Impossible III, and director Ridley Scott on White Squall, to iconic TV scores for influential shows Homicide: Life on The Street, Chicago Hope & Profiler, his experience in creating the soundtrack to incredible storytelling is among the most impressive of any modern composer. Add in his hugely successful diversions into documentaries, including Generation Iron (and it's sequel), and video games, such as his award winning soundtrack for last year's Devil May Cry 5 for Capcom, it's clear that we'd need an entire podcast episode in itself devoted to just reading out Jeff's credits! Not only that, Jeff has devoted himself to educating and enlightening new and aspiring composers, with his best selling books 'The Reel World', which to this day prove to be an excellent primer for anyone wondering what it takes to write music for media in the modern age. In this exclusive Masterclass with MYT's Paul Nolan, Jeff gives all the advice you need if you're an electronic music producer, and looking to diversify into music for Film, TV & Games.  This is another Beyond The Studio packed full of golden advice from one of the best in the game. You can find out more about Jeff at http://www.jeffrona.com/ This was another live masteclass held exclusively for MYT AAA members, and we have many more planned throughout 2021 with the biggest names and brightest minds in electronic music, film music and much more. You can attend these classes live by signing up for AAA Membership, which costs just £7 for your first 7 days.  You can find out more information and sign up by heading to http://www.transition.studio Subscribe to MYT on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/makeyourtransition?sub_confirmation=1  Subscribe to Beyond The Studio on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/myt-beyond-the-studio/id1545962399 Subscribe to Beyond The Studio on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/2wioBoFfzN1mBmXTXvzRz6?si=CV1WqvjhSy-eI5lo-4xmWw  #FilmMusic #Podcast #MusicProduction

003 - Dave Ralph's incredible journey to the top of the Dance Music tree.
Dave Ralph has had one of the most interesting and unique journeys in the history of electronic music. From humble beginnings in his home city of Liverpool, Dave went on to regularly feature at iconic superclubs like Cream, and tour the world with other legendary DJs such as Paul Oakenfold. Dave also jumped across the pond at a much earlier stage than most in dance music, and established himself as a well known touring artist across America, and also played a huge role in the success of Insomniac, which has grown into one of the foremost club and festival brands in the world. That's not all! Dave is also an accomplished producer, and was one of the talents behind one of the biggest dancefloor hits of the 90's, Bassheads 'Is There Anybody Out There?' Dave's been putting the lockdown to good use, and has, after a long hiatus, gotten back into the studio, and is creating some amazing new tracks with the more modern studio technology he now has at his disposal. In this conversation with MYT Founder Paul Nolan, Dave reflects on his incredible journey, which proves that success definitely doesn't come in a straight line, or even in the form you were expecting! This conversation was a live streamed Masterclass for MYT AAA Members, and if you'd like to attend these Masterclasses live in future, then consider becoming an MYT AAA Member, which gets you access to events like this on a regular basis, 20+ courses and a vibrant supportive community of other artists who share the same goals as you, all lifting each other up to greater success in their creative endaevours.

001 - Bushwacka! on Mental Health and his new venture, ListenUp Therapy
Matthew 'Bushwacka' Benjamin has done it all in a career that has spanned over 3 decades. From the earliest days of Acid House, through to the era of breakbeat, his incredible partnership with Layo Paskin and their legendary residency at one of London's most missed venues, The End, to genre defining labels such as Oblong, Olmeto and Plank, and even mainstream chart hits, thanks to tracks such as 'Love Story' - it's been a career to end them all...and that's before you get to the wilder, more challenging side of a life so well lived and immersed in electronic dance music culture. It's a journey that has led him through some challenging times, but out of those challenges emerged a new path. A fascinating shift in gears has seen Matthew recently qualify as a psychotherapist, and is now launching a mental health and wellbeing platform, Listen Up Therapy, alongside his partner Belinda. In this, the very first episode of MYT - Beyond The Studio, Matthew and Belinda sit down with MYT Founder Paul Nolan to talk about this new and emerging path, the challenges that a life in electronic music presents from a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual perspective, and what they hope to achieve through Listen Up You can find out more information about ListenUp Therapy here - https://www.listenuptherapy.com/ You can follow Bushwacka on Instagram here - https://www.instagram.com/bushwacka/ MYT hosts live conversations and masterclasses such as this every month for their AAA Members, where you get to attend live, ask questions and interact with the brightest and best minds, thought leaders and artists electronic music has to offer - with over 20 courses also available, and a supportive community of fellow artists to feel support and inspiration from, it really is the key to becoming the artist you know you can be You can find out more information and sign up by heading to http://www.transition.studio Subscribe to MYT on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/makeyourtransition?sub_confirmation=1  Subscribe to Beyond The Studio on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/myt-beyond-the-studio/id1545962399 Subscribe to Beyond The Studio on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/2wioBoFfzN1mBmXTXvzRz6?si=CV1WqvjhSy-eI5lo-4xmWw  AAA Member Featured Track!

MYT: Beyond The Studio - Official Trailer
We've been planning this for a while. Honestly, it's been an idea of mine for years - to create a podcast where I sit down with electronic music's biggest, brightest and best, for conversations that really get into the psyche, philosophy and mindsets required to not only succeed the modern music industry, but in life in general. After the 2020 we've all been through, the time couldn't feel more right for this, and so, in January, we're launching Beyond The Studio. Expect original long form conversations with some of the most well respected artists, producers and thought leaders in electronic music culture, as well as insights from experts in the field of mental and physical health, self improvement and spiritual growth. Not only that, we'll be featuring audio versions of our Artist Masterclasses, which are attended live, and exclusively by our MYT AAA Members. There'll also be solo episodes, recorded by yours truly, on a huge range of topics, all with the intention of helping you develop and refine your artistic and creative practice. All of this is covered, with new episodes every single week, in service to you, so you can become the best artist you can be, through becoming the best version of yourself - which is the central core value behind everything we do at MYT, and why I set the platform up in the first place. You can listen to a trailer episode right here, and you can subscribe to Beyond The Studio wherever you get your podcasts from. I'm genuinely excited to go Beyond The Studio with you! Big Love!
