The Road to Being ICONIC
With over 8 years of Producing and Mixing experience, ICONIC THE ALCHEMIST started shaping his sound back at RedSpace Studios in Rockville, MD where he gained valuable skills such as studio mixing abilities, learning to run sessions like second nature independently, guiding and assisting artists' individual careers, and teaching new interns the skills he himself had learned.
The name ICONIC started spreading quickly in the DMV area leading him to work with hundreds of artists. Notable east coast artists include Lorsosa, Gleesh, Manny Wave, Marty Baller, Yaddiya, and Fireman Band$. Pulling influences from all ends of the sonic-universe to tap into his own unique sound, best described as psychedelic electric trap, ICONIC gained inspiration from SouthSide, Odesza, Big Boi, Lex Luger, Wheezy, Diplo, Rick Rubin, Kanye West, and Noah Shebib.
Progressing up to Creative Director at RedSpace Studios, ICONIC decided that it was time to continue progressing and took the leap from MD to CA in 2020. Now living in Los Angeles, and founding Produced by ICONIC in 2020, determined to make a name and leave a legacy in the entertainment industry.
Growing Up & Education
Born in Rockville, MD in 1994, the earliest memories of a young Colin Torrible, which ultimately sparked a unbreakable bond with music, started with listening to techno music in the car with his father in the 90's. Starting to make beats at the age of 17, after seeing a friend produce a song right in front of his eyes, Colin was obsessed, and ICONIC was born.
"I downloaded a free version of FL Studio and spent 8 hours a day watching tutorials on youtube as well as practicing and refining my skills day after day." - ICONIC THE ALCHEMIST
Being unable to go to a prestigious music college due to financial reasons, a relentless ICONIC refused to let this stunt his growth, filling countless journals with notes from classroom syllabi found online while learning FL studio, Logic Pro X and Ableton simultaneously. Three years in, ICONIC carved out a signature sound for himself and the psychedelic electric trap sound became refined and polished. ICONIC was ready to go full steam with his ultimate passion.
The future is now
Since October 2020, ICONIC entered into a 18 month contract to create an debut album with artist JRDS (unreleased project available to hear above), due to drop on a major label this coming summer. Now that project is finished, ICONIC is eager to continue building momentum by acquiring management to help with client acquisition, and to make music that will withstand time and create a million memories.
