A: What is your goal with this project?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I tend to gravitate towards emotional chords and structure.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Martin Garrix and Ava Max I think I would make a great collab with Martin given our interests in music and Ava Max would make for a great pop single.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: You can make some really interesting chord progressions by borrowing a chord from another key. You can keep that chord movement clean by using chords that are shared by both keys. For example: C > G > D > Amin (C Major is our key & D is the borrowed chord from G Major)
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Future Bass, Pop, Hip-Hop
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my ability to keep the listener interested.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: On top of beat-making, I've also scored a few video games. That experience makes me add details to music that aren't typically seen in the commercial realm. It's that bit of uniqueness that could make heads turn.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I work from the ground up. I am very much about the foundations, so when I produce, I start with the drums. I tend to build bass, chords, and melody from that. Once I have the main idea, I start adding the little details that make beats stand out (FX, foley, etc.) As for mixing, I usually give the lead instrument priority (usually the vocals) and work from there.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a modest home studio setup. It consists of studio monitor speakers & a treated acoustic environment
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by Electronic icons like: Porter Robinson, Zedd, & Illenium Also inspired by Hip-Hop producers like: Illmind, Kanye West, & Timbaland
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I typically make beats for upcoming artists.
