ABOUT THE CONTROLLERS
The Controllers are no ordinary set of record producer’s. Unlike the many clichéd testimonies heard everyday, they really do compose in all genres, from the organic 1950’s do-wop era to yesterday’s heavily synthesized number one. Who would have thought that two individuals, living near opposite lives would collaborate on a life changing experience in 2007 by the single element that got them started, a love for music.
Raised in a home that appreciated world music, Amour began to realise the importance of music in society and began playing the Piano at a young age. By 14, he was a classically trained pianist, yet he chose to pause developing his playing further in order to start his newly found skill of composing. Fast-forwarding a few years, he was introduced to many new genres and styles of music, thus increasing his knowledge of composition, production and engineering skills to suit each one.
Growing up around garage and lyrical rap unlike Amour was Michael’s way of understanding music. Somewhat moving on from his upbringing with an influential urban scene, Michael began accomplishing what can be only known as passion for all types of music, slowly gathering enough knowledge to understand the subtle differences around him. Without being formally taught how to play an instrument, Michael began using his skills to understand instrumentation, which now leads him to pick up any western instrument and play ideas on, one after the other.
The Controllers do not have a set of end-all-be-all equipment. Having skills to figure out equipment in minutes, they can accommodate a vast range of studios, from a lo-fi 4-track basement studio to a fully blown Pro Tools system. This allows them to work with artists that prefer to use a set DAW or method, while still retaining their signature sound.
