I'm a 20 year old Producer/Drummer. I've been playing drums and percussion for 14 years and I've been producing for 6 years. I utilise percussive sounds to help my tracks feel organic and fresh.
I can play other instruments too however my skill varies with them as I'm self taught, I can play; Guitar, Ukulele, Bass guitar, Violin, Alto Sax, Piano. I am currently attending Icon collective and have access to professional studios to mix and master Tracks with ease.

A: I'm currently working on a project called Floot where I'm producing minimal, organic sounding beats and songs.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not Currently.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both, digital can definitely recreate sounds very closely and you can get some really cool effects, but analog and acoustic instruments still have a specific feel and theres always slight inconsistencies that make each instrument/synthesizer sound its own way.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: People think that I'm not a musician because I produce off of a laptop, but they don't know that to produce you need to know more skills, such as sound design, mixing, mastering and on top of that I need to know the fundamentals of music theory.
