Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My Work starts by creating a beat, an intro, a verse, a drop etc... Once this is done, i start with the Bass and the Groove and the additional drums sometimes. And from there once that is done, everything wild starts to penetrate my music gradually.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My Studio comprises of the DAW which is Logic Pro X, a few other programs which i have programmed myself and controllers such as Akai pads and Akai MPK and Akai MPK Mini and of course the Synth ! Without the Synth and if you dont know how to use it as a Synth than electronic music isn't for you. my Favourite which i always use is the KORG MONOLOGUE.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My Main inspiration comes from the 1950's Arabic Tarab Scene such as Um Kalthum and Asmahan and so on. However being an Electronic music producer and a DJ i always look at those Idols for the Vibe but i never copy.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Taking the Genre and the Idea and the Vibe imagination from my client is the basis to start working on prototypes that could fit their demand. Three Prototypes are usually enough for a client to choose. Once the client chooses then the real hard work starts by adding more components to the Track and adjusting beats.
