Out Now Magazine Spotlight series featuring Two Can for an exclusive interview
Where are you from?
Hey Out Now! Im Myles Sach-Haber aka Two Can. I’m 26 years old. I have a pet dog named Cello, and he is a bordoodle.
I live in Melbourne, Australia by the beach in St Kilda,
When did you start making music?
This ones a story I haven’t ever really told anyone, but basically, when it was my 10th birthday. I requested to have it at a recording studio in Melbourne, as I was a guitar addict. For the birthday party, we got to use loops and use the producing software Acid to make a song, and then they record it to a CD at the end of the day, and each kid has a CD of our music. I actually have a photo from the party. Below is my 2 friends and myself (on the right) recording some sounds and making a song! This sparked my curiosity how you can record music and make something with multiple layers and have control of that. From that point on music was my main focus. I started DJ’ing house parties in year 10 for school mates, and getting drunk on the weekends for 18th birthdays, was fun times haha.. Throughout that time though, I was playing guitar still, and took jazz as a subject in year 11 and 12. I would then discover the producing program Logic through having to record a jazz album as our final assignment. The engineer who recorded it was using logic and gave me his spare copy of it (absolute legend) and then I started doing music more seriously. I took a gap year after school, and went back packing through Europe. In Berlin I met a dude after going out one night who used Ableton, I saw what I wanted to do on Ableton more so than what I was doing on Logic at the time and made the switch.
How do you describe your music?
I find this question tricky, I would say if Calvin Harris, MGMT, and Flume had a child, it would be something similar to that.
Favorite moment from your career?
There are a lot, I think it would be a tie between when Dua Lipa asked me to tour with her for her first ever Australian tour, or when I got my first publishing deal with Peppermint Blue (Universal Music Australia) by my publisher Smiley Clearly.
Who is your biggest musical inspiration?
The Beatles. I think If someone held a gun to my head and asked me to write every lyric they have every written, I would walk away alive.
What is your producing software?
Ableton for production, protools for mixing and recording. I find separating the work flow so Ableton is purely a creative tool and protools is a purely mixing tool really REALLY helps my workflow. A lot of producers get caught in the details of less important things and spend a lot of time doing fixes to things that don’t really matter at the end of the day. I think it’s crucial to be creative when you need to be.
What other things do you do besides making music?
Video games with my best friends (mainly Fortnite), cooking (I make four cooking book recipe dinners a week) and spending time with my friends going for afternoon beers.
What is your favorite track of all time?
I Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd.
What is your best-producing tip?
As i mentioned above, separating between two softwares for different things. I know every producer reading this has started an amazing idea and then got lost in tweaking the production and lost the spark in the process, and lost the spark from the song. Separating between two softwares eliminates any chance of that happening!!
Why did you start making music?
I have so much music and melodies in my brain from when I play guitar, and production is a way I can let all the chaos in my mind release. Its kind of therapeutic now I think on it.
What are your goals for the future?
I will be moving back to LA in a few months, and my goal is to really start my journey over in the states. I want to start writing for lots of the Universal Music Roster, try get some really good publishing scores for there pop roster, and start developing a bit of a catalog outside of Two Can. Think what Mark Ronson has done, thats what I want to aim for!
What advice can you give for young music producers/DJs?
Its an extremely tough industry and to trust the process. It is way easier than said, but I mean it. I have had songs absolutely ridiculed by super high ups in the industry, and the next week others turn around and offer 5 figure deals to sign them. If you believe in the music, someone else will, so trust your ears more than any, and take negative feedback with a grain of salt. If you can get over the self doubt side of things, it becomes a lot easier.
