There was some playing around with:
-Drum and Bass (i was going for my fav one the hard one)
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I'm especially proud the 'Music is Morphine' project...
The project is a song, the genre is like Space-Trap or something Space in general...
The 'creators & producers" are me and a Bulgarian friend.. My friend was working on the lyrics and the details he liked in a beat and I did the beat (which I'm really proud of) and the 'so called mixing and mastering' at the day...
Why am I proud...?
Because we had so much fun working on it and we gave our pure love in something we knew it wont be perfect due to lack of experience in both of us, but there was natural force driving us through.
We really appreciated the end result and we were ready for more...
The project took place in Sofia, Bulgaria before my recording and mixing education..
