What up! It's A. W!llz Le Artiste! Not much of an introduction but, whatever. lol
Solo. Started in college in 09. The beats I make were majorly weak. Took a lot of practice and STUDY before I started to get better. I'm still learning. I know that wasn't much of a history, but, I don't want to bore you with specifics.
No, I don't play live. I wish I could! Ha!
I have to say 9th Wonder was the one who changed my whole beat making perspective. When I saw him on the MPC making Beautiful Lady, I was so amazed. But, lets not forget Just Blaze, Alchemist and many others whom I spent countless days listening to and learning different techniques.
I am currently using FL studio 8, Protools 8, along with a Korg M3. That's a good line-up in my opinion!
Yeah, I just hope everybody loves the beats. All comments are welcome here as long as they are relevant. Songwriters, lets make history!
