...my bedroom is my LAB, my mouse is my SCALPEL, music is my PATIENT -Ben Blush
OK...Here's the scoop: There's a reason I have less than half the songs on here that I had before...I took off ALL the good ones...the ones that'll make me money are gone...the ones left are either with me rapping, random beats I made that I have no intention of selling, or OLD beats...so this is what you'll have to do to hear what's good (literally)...holla at ya boi: c_hill69@hotmail.com benblush@gmail.com

Started sampling oldies from Body & Soul CD's... 14. Skill level OFFICIALLY passed Lil' Jon 15. Found my samples... 16. Started making beats like a madman to make up for lost time... 17. Downloaded a shitload of ModernBeats drumkits (they are worth the money...but I didn't pay) 18. Started writing seriously... 19. OFFICIALLY one of the elite beatmakers in America... 20. Sold some beats...others being saved for certain specific rappers... 21. First contract received, not sure if I should sign...
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I used to be in a band...FLAVA BAND!...I love the live feel but for now I'm stuck behind the boards...One day I'll be back though...
Your musical influences
I used to be a band bum...literally, I would be in the band room at all times messing with instruments...I taught myself 90% of what I know about music...I love oldie music...I love to be creative and I try to be a beat ahead of everybody...I incorporate a whole bunch of little, hidden, tricks and tweaks to create sounds...I love any and ALL music...
What equipment do you use?
From the time I started I've been using Fruityloops...say what you want...I'm the 10th Wonder...I mastered the program and now I'm using FL Studio 6 XXL...Got me a TASCAM USB/MIDI Interface, MXL 990 Microphone, I sometimes do vocals in FL Studio using my ASIO sound card but other than that I use Sonar and Acid for vocals...I hardly ever use MIDI...It's just me the screen, a mouse, a keyboard, and some headphones...any headphones
Anything else?
I AM the best kept secret...When I finally let loose on the industry it's gonna be OVER!!!...Please, for your sake, don't copy my songs...I pay $30/per to have them copywritten and I am just waiting to sue someone so I can get rich quick and build me a studio so I can make more music for you to copy...
