Hey! My name is Ethan, I'm 13 years old, and I make beats for fun and to sell! I play piano, basketball, and baseball, and like hanging out with friends,
I would say I started about 2 years ago in 5th grade. The first software I used was Garageband and I quickly gained interest after taking an amateur music class at Kansas State University. I uploaded my first beats on to SoundCloud and YouTube, and after that I started focusing on remaking songs. For a while, I stopped posting on the Internet, but now I am taking beat production pretty seriously and am reaching out to artists looking to buy or use my beats!
I would say my first major influence was Lil Uzi Vert and, at the time, his go to producer Maaly Raw. I just loved the spacey and chill vibes that they gave off, and his beats were so simple and hard, I started listening to them a lot and would say I base my main styles off of those two. I also listened to a lot of XXXTENTACION and Juice WRLD (Rest in peace to both!) but I would say my major influences are Lil Uzi, Juice, Nick Mira, and Maaly Raw!
FL Studio is my go-to, although I started out using Garageband for a solid 2 years starting out!
Have a great day!
