Im just i young dedicated producer in love with the craft of making beats. I started by playing the keyboard at 10. I didn't have any classical or formal training i just play everything by ear. I personally think thats the one up i have because im not stuck to a particular way of making a beat so i can flow with whatever pattern. Be like water.
As i stated earlier i started making music at 10. Playing the keyboard by ear. I think i was about 12 13 or 14 when on Christmas i got my first real keyboard where i could record full tracks instead of just playing keys. I remember how excited i was when i first opened it and started playing. I think that was the best Christmas i ever had. The more technology grew or the more i discovered about production i found out how about mixcraft and other programs that you can make beats on. I found out about the midi keyboards and started using those. Then i discovered using loops instead of playing out tracks to make a beat. So i started making beats with loops and then i discovered the MPC and now that will be my next evolving moment.
No i dont play live i thought about it. I mean only because i saw a guy by the name of Arab Muzik and how he performs on the MPC live and thats the next machine i plan on working off of the MPC and the Toraiz Sample Workstation.
Timbaland, Kanye West, Dr Dre, Lex Luger, London on Da Track, Southside, TM88, No I.D., Rick Rubin, Zaytoven, 808 Mafia, Honorable C.N.O.T.E. and i mean the list goes on as far as the who. What influences me is really just music itself. To put together something that sounds good or like something you could hear a Beyonce, Gaga or 2 Chainz record to just gives me motivation to keep going and keep getting better.
Really whatever i can get my hands on or whatever new i discover.
