Interview with HVWKiNZ

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: A project that I am truly proud of is A.L.O.N.E. It really does show my growth in music production and sums up my knowledge of music creating. I was proud because, I worked on it by myself and did not need any help from anyone and I can proudly say it is one best I have made yet.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: At the moment I am trying to grasp the knowledge of Amapiano and see where it can take me, and I can learn from it.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: I would recommend you to hire Musicality. Musicality has this feel and aura in his beats that it can make anyone have another world feel. Especially his remixes, my favorite of them all is the remix of Garou's theme he did an outstanding job on it, and as you listen to it you feel as if I can conquer anything in my path, so he is the best producer and underrated of them all.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Analog, it can give a song a human feel and I do not have to worry that I need the power to use any of my instruments.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: That no matter what is your request you will adore it at the highest level.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: If the client has given me a job that I do not of its origins, it is exhilarating to research about it, and what kind of community it has expanding my knowledge of the music world.

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: People do tend to see me as inexperienced because of my age, and where I am from.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: What tempo do you want the beat? What sort of style are you looking for? What is the deadline for this service? Are there any artists or producers I can use as a base for these services?

  17. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  18. A: If you want to hire me, do not feel the need to be formal, talk as if I am a close friend, and I do not mind extra detailed descriptions of the wanted service, the more detailed the better for you.

  19. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  20. A: I would take my Predator laptop, Midi Keyboard, Mic, Solar panels and Wifi.

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: Music Producing has been my hobby since 2017, using Drum Pads 24 and in 2018 owning my first ever laptop from my brother's childhood friend Jotam and some BOSE headphones from my brother Sfiso. And using FL Studio 12 ever since.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: My style is basically just doing what I feel like is good. I can't describe my style but, some of my friends and partners say that I have an old school type of style, like when the hip hop industry was just starting in the old days, when a beat was just the breakdown of another song but adding some snares, kicks and hi-hats and 808s.

  25. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  26. A: I would like to work with the artist Nasty C. He is one of the artists that I truly respect in the music industry of South Africa, his style, his optimistic personality, originality and respect of his home country and culture.

  27. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  28. A: If you're facing a breakdown or not finding any inspiration for making beats. Try doing something else that is not related to producing, Try finding another hobby may be meditating, yoga. It is of utmost troubling at first but you will get used to it. Then as soon as you get to your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) ideas will as a speeding bullet.

  29. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  30. A: I usually work on Trap Metal, Hip Hop, and Soundtracks (OST) for my book's characters.

  31. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  32. A: I mostly combine what I have learned in other genres and combine them to make a new style, because now I am in a stage where I am trying to find my sound, my own style. But now I'm trying to learn anything that seems worthy of my journey of music in the future.

  33. Q: What's your typical work process?

  34. A: My beats come from what I feel like what the soul sees as suited for the moment. If my mood is upbeat I make Amapiano and Boom Bap beats if it's raining I make Lofi or Pop music (for some reason). But every other day I make Trap Metal, Orchestral Hip Hop and any genre.
