Stenz Beats grew up in Miami his whole life raised by a broken home but stable financially. He started working with music at the age of 8. Writing rhymes, dancing, singing and scratching/mixing on turntables were some of his early childhood hobbies. At the age of 17 he started making beats and became extremely attached and passionate for this part of music. Now he produces beats for local artists and is working on having kids across the world in Japan or Europe screaming "Stenz Beats!" one day.

No I haven't had the opportunity to play live yet. I'm waiting and ready for it though. I'm not an artist. I'm the person behind the track that no one gets to see.
I love every type of music. Growing up I listened to anything from Bob Dylan to 2Pac. My favorite Hip Hop album of all time is "Me Against The World" and I heard it for the first time when I was 6 years old. I didn't understand half of the lyrics on that song but the beats and 2Pacs lyrics and vocals inspired me. I also am influenced by The Killers, George Martin who produced every Beatles album. Pink Floyd, Jim Morrison & The Doors, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Elton John. One of my favorite albums of all time is Experience by Jimmy Hendrix. Again in Hip Hop Eminem influenced me a lot because I'm white and he was one of the only white boys to change the game forever. I also love Nappy Roots, Dr. Dre, J. Dilla, Johnny "J", Kanye West, Labbi Siffre, Organized Noize, Outkast & Just Blaze.
I have Pro Tools, an Akai MPC 2000XL, M Audio keyboard, Mac Book Pro and a Mac G5.
Well I've let you internet music lovers know pretty much every reason how I make music and why I make music. So if you have read all this after listening to my beats, listen to my beats again with my words in your mind.
Peace & love to anybody out there trying to follow their dreams. And everybody going through tough times, keep your head up you'll see better days.
