Hi, my name is Matthew Vere, online I go by the artist alias ‘Vanity’. I create content on Beats by Vanity TV, a YouTube channel that reverse engineers an artists sound, monthly. I also run an audio sample library company, Samples by Vanity, that releases a sample pack alongside each tutorial.
I started making music production tutorials selfishly. Because I couldn’t find the tutorials I wanted to watch, I decided to make them. There’s a quote from Austin Kleon’s book ‘Steal Like an Artist’ that I try and live my life by:
“The manifesto is this: Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use-do the work you want to see done.”
My highest educational qualification in music production is a bachelor of science with honours degree. I only share this as I want everyone who watches my content to know that the information I present is and always will be, of the highest standard. You do not need a degree, nor any qualification to become any version of an electronic artist, but with the age of the internet I think it’s only necessary that you know who your information is coming from.
