Getting into Music and Production
Well how I got into music production, it was part of my life, it just happened, I was just an ordinary church drummer, but yet I loved the likes of drake, Lil’Wayne and the whole cash money group.
The stunts in their instrumental/ songs motivated me to give a trial to my drumming skill but I couldn’t do it….I then decided to find out what the Americans use in making music….Went through searches on Google, got the software, explored it and learnt it on my own indoors till I was able to produce for somebody.
I got to meet few friends who loved what am doing in school… And that’s how I get to meet people every day.
Asides Amem, Other Songs Produced that have gotten Attention?
Not much songs though. I produced “Carolina” by Razor ft Nayme Harvey and Morgan. ‘Ata Ufa’ by Razzy and Teaser’s “Shake Body” and a few other nice songs.
Meeting the Unik Brodaz
Well, my meeting with the Unik Brodaz was designed by God. They came to record in my studio through my bosses Feelingz and MC Collins. Their “Amem?” project was an ongoing project before we met and had already been touched by up to five producers and was sounding good. So they kinda heard ma sounds and then liked it and so they insisted I have to take on the project afresh with them.
Influences in Production
Uhm!.. The likes of Killertunes, Spellz, Master Kraft, Tekno, Krizbeatz…these guyz are my influence in the music production industry. They are sound gods.
What It Feels Producing A Street Anthem Like “Amem?”
I feel great and destined! And this happened within the short period of time I emerged and boom, I produced a hit…it’s an exciting and amazing feeling!
Getting some Accolades after the Song became Big
Lol, yeah a lot of it! I get accolades from folks I know and those I don’t know….Good Compliment everywhere I go to.
Inspiration Behind the beat
What inspired the beat is the progression of the song…. Almost same vibes but the sounds were not from Run Town’s song, “Mad Over You”…. It’s a total different sound. People will always criticize no matter what!
The Journey so far as an Upcoming Producer
It hasn’t been easy though. I have experienced some tough times and good times, but on the whole, there is hope!
I hope to take my music grind to the next level, outside where I’m from. I look forward to working with bigger acts and produce more hit songs.
