Creating the Sound is Cooper Anderson and Dylan Wissing. We've been creating, recording and mixing music at a top level for decades, for artists such as Alicia Keys, John Legend, Drake, fun., Kanye West, Jay-Z, Eminem, Future, Wu Tang Clan and many more. Our drum loops and samples are heard in releases from Native Instruments and Cymatics. We've been featured in the New York Times and Modern Drummer Magazine.
Producer, mix engineer and musician Cooper Anderson's work appears with artists like Kanye West, John Legend, Future, Rick Ross, Ghostface Killah, and the Diamond-selling record "We Are Young" by Fun.
Cooper started recording at the dawn of the digital age on an Alesis LX20 ADAT machine. "Everything I know about electronic music production started with listening to Dr. Dre and Ice-T as a kid," he says. Cooper's experience combining the exploding world of digital recording with a love of sample-based music led to a career as a first-call engineer with some of the top producers and artists in the music industry.
Graduating with honors from the Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Production and Engineering, Cooper has been deeply active in the NYC recording scene ever since, including work on the top-secret Once Upon a Time in Shaolin by Wu Tang Clan.
Cooper produces and mixes EDM, Pop and Country artists, as well as his own line of loops and sample packs.
Dylan Wissing exploded onto the international scene drumming on Alicia Keys' smash hit "Girl on Fire." His credits include drum tracks for Kanye West, Drake, John Legend, Eminem, Jay-Z, T.I., Rick Ross, Fabulous, Needtobreath and many more.
Dylan's interest in the sound of old records goes back to childhood. "I grew up in the middle of nowhere in Southern Indiana, surrounded by R&B, Soul, Classic Rock and Jazz on vinyl. It's a sound that's deeply imprinted on me and carries through everything I do to this day," he says.
Drawing from a huge collection of instruments, both cutting-edge modern and crusty vintage, Dylan creates live drum loops and samples with vibe for days from his own Triple Colossal Studios in Hoboken, New Jersey.
Dylan is an proud endorser of GMS Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Aquarian Drumheads, Innovative Percussion sticks, ProLogix pads, TnR Products and Cymbal Resonance System.
