About: Protis has been writing music since 1998, when he was still in high school. The name Protis came about from watching the TV show Pokemon; his original name was Piggy, and just how Pikachu evolves into Raichu, well he decided that Piggy would evolve into Protis. The name has stuck ever since then.

Protis is a big fan of computer-based music. The first computer program he used for music purposes was Cubase Lite on good ol' Windows 3.1 operating system. Over the years he moved on to Cubast VST, where he further developed his skills as a songwriter. Most of his early recordings were instrumental works, as at the time he was unable to compose decent lyrics.

After a while, Protis decided to leave the realm of General MIDI and progress into the world of loops and samples. He accomplished this by using the ACID range of products. Countless hours were spent with this brilliant piece of software, coming up with lots of cool beats.

Protis has also dabbled in the FruityLoops software, now called FL Studio. He utilised FL Studio to write songs which contained his first self-penned lyrics. He was surprised at just how well his lyrics came across in each song, fitting in well with the music. And all this from someone who could never write words to his songs!

Protis has been recording cover versions of his favourite songs since 2012. All of the covers he has done feature on this channel. He has also had the opportunity to collaborate with some talented musicians from all over the world! He never thought in his wildest dreams that he would be able to achieve this. Protis intends to continue challenging himself musically in the future.

Twisted - Keith Sweat (cover added by Protis)

This one comes from the mid-1990s, I think. Two versions of this song exist, but this one samples the drums from Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing". Needless to say, this version is commonly referred to as the "Sexual Healing Remix". The audio has been enh

George's Helper - Peter Murray (cover by Protis & BandHub musicians)

For me at least, the best thing about BandHub is that people have the opportunity to learn new songs. None of the musicians that helped with me this one had heard of it previously. It was completed in July I think, but only now have I decided to put a mix

Holiday - Green Day (cover added by Protis)

The various clips for the video were filmed in March 2015. The audio portion was still missing drums at this stage. I had a few people in mind to play drums for me, but these didn't work out unfortunately. So I left this project for a few months, only

Everybody - Backstreet Boys (cover added by Protis)

Instrumental backing obtained from a friend in 1999, as a MIDI file. This was then played through my Technics SX-KN930 keyboard. Ever since I first purchased the VoiceLive 2, I have been excited to do my own cover of this party favourite. I wanted to s

Chain Reaction - John Farnham (cover added by Protis)

Completed in June 2015 using FL Studio. The project was started in January of this year, and I was working on several other songs at the same time. Keen observers may notice that I have done something slightly different with the various clips in this vi

No Reply - The Beatles (cover added by Protis)

Completed in March 2015 using FL Studio. I came up with the piano arrangement during one of my BandHub sessions. I was playing along to a cover of this song by a user called Keith Todd. This video has more going on in it when compared to my others, s

Why Don't You Get A Job? - The Offspring (cover added by Protis)

Completed in February 2015 using FL Studio. This cover was a real challenge to finish, having started on it back in July last year. I was not happy with my original vocal recording, which was done in November. Try as I may, I just could not get the ove

Locked Out Of Heaven - Bruno Mars (cover added by Protis)

Completed in February 2015 using FL Studio. I had heard Brian Fitzy's live looping rendition of this song, and it inspired me to do my own version. I started working out the piano arrangement in October last year, while my computer was away being servic
