We’ve all dreamed of self-releasing the music we produce in our bedrooms and finding success with help from the internet. Apple Music’s new INDIY playlist showcases some artists that are living out this dream, self-producing and self-releasing their own material. It dives into a blend of indie and R&B music – “mellow but adventurous”, as Apple describes.

“The tracks here have as much to do with the expressivity of soul as the left-field subversions of ‘alternative’ – music that invites you in but still keeps things a little weird and abstract”, the Editors Note continues.

To celebrate the launch, two of the artists featured – Marie Dahlstrom and Bamily – have shared Instagram posts demonstrating how they use Logic Pro X in their work. Marie Dahlstrom details her signal chain and how she applies certain plug-ins to achieve her desired vocal sounds. See it below.

Bamily has posted a short video talking through the Logic Pro project of Little Brother, breaking down the instrumentation, effects and arrangement. The full video breakdown is due for upload in the next few weeks.

Currently, there is a 90-day free trial for Logic Pro X, where budding producers and songwriters can get stuck into recording and production. You can also check out our Logic Pro Tips video series to get up to scratch on using the revered DAW.

Some of the other artists that make an appearance on the INDIY playlist include the sample-heavy psychedelic artist Yves Tumor, rising UK star Beabadoobee, who was sampled in Powfu’s mainstream hit Death Bed.

You can listen to the INDIY playlist on Apple Music now.
