From one artist to another I only want things to sound the best I can make them. With my first album published I am ready to aid and learn with fellow artists so we can both be and sound our best! Genres I have a preference toward EDM but am very open to most music aside to country. I look forward to us discovering our sound together!
I WORK IN LOGIC PRO X. I can do mixing and mastering and I'm open to collaborating with artists to make a track as well. As a DJ I'm all about the new sounds and love to play with samples! Sometimes giving yourself a limit is a great door for inspiration! Beats are easy, but capturing the story is one heck of a ride!
