I made my first beat at around 2014, I was about 14 years old. I used FL Studio 11 I believe, and it was completely awful. I remember giving it up in late 2016/early 2017 before I came back and tried again late 2017.
Kanye West has always inspired me as his production style is always cutting edge and influential, he’s always coming up with new stuff.
I pretty much use FL stock plugins and my keyboard and that’s it.
It takes anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour to complete a track, and about half of that is mixing while the other is creating/arranging.
I use samples from Splice, Looperman, and any packs I can find if they’re good and cheap.
I usually start with a melody whether it be handmade or sample based. After, I build the drums around it, and mix the drums around it.
My greatest success would be my beat titled “Noelle” on my YouTube channel. It has over 1.5 million views and catapulted me to where I am today. I am extremely blessed for it and without it, I would be nowhere.
I use Airbit because it is the most aesthetically pleasing to me, and is the one that I saw my favorite producers using.
My goal is just to make a living off of this day in and day out.
I am an introvert at heart and don’t do much or go out much, so I have plenty of time on my hands to make music. It’s the only thing I really do.
Being consistent with quality. I am still getting better at that.
I did in 2016 because I was getting nowhere with anything. I started back in 2017 because this is what I wanted to do and I was gonna do it or die.
Knowing without it I would be lonely, sad, and without any source of income.
Never stop no matter what. Good things come to those who work hard.
I am open to collaborate with anyone. Hip-Hop or Trap would be the style I would be suited for.
