A: I create the flow and atmosphere needed to make it real
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I listen to the music for a few times, getting the feel and vibe of it and then I start adding layers of percussion. First I create a solid version that fully supports the music and then I expand for more artistic and creative ideas.
