If you're looking for a Bubblegum Bass/Hyperpop beat, I'm your person! Queer and unapologetic is the best way to describe the kind of music I make and love to listen to. I can build your song from the ground up to your liking or build something around a vocal, instrument, or diddy you got floating around in your head. Let's work together!
Who is Hex Face?
A femme (preferred name "Violet") Bubblegum Bass, Hyperpop, Lo-fi HipHop, and Bedroom Pop producer and vocalist from a lil suburb in Los Angeles.
I formally studied Experimental Pop Music and Music Composition at California Institute of the Arts with a focus in Electronic music and Vocals. I have studied under mentors who have worked with artists like clipping. and Lou Reed. And I have an undying passion for music!
What does Hex Face do?
I love to produce those super pop-y catchy get out of my head songs with a special twisted edge. I can produce any genre of Experimental Pop (pretty much anything can be ExPop,) but I do prefer Hyperpop. No matter what, I will turn whatever you want in to exactly that: the beat YOU want! Definitely email me if you are interested in these options:
~Making you a unique track from the ground-up
~Creating a super cool beat around whatever sample you created
~Personalizing a track I've already created
~Recording unique sounds for sound design sketches
~Original lyrics and demo scratch recordings
What is Hex Face's work process?
It takes me up to a week to make a radio length song (about 2-5 minutes in length,) but if necessary I can throw your track together in as little as 3 days. You get 3 free revisions!
I'd absolutely love to work with you, so hit that email button & send me something!

Interview with Violet Shue
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently I am working on a really fun hyperpop type song as a songwriter for a performing artist who has a beat already made for them! It's super Slayyyter/Charli XCX/LIZ/Hannah Diamond feeling and I really really dig it! Essentially I personified a T-Shirt.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: First off: preferred name and pronouns. It is so important that the two people who work together have a mutual respect for each other. Secondly musical questions! A big question I ask prospective clients, especially when producing for them, is what two artists created you. Like whose love child are you! It's very important that I know all of the influences a client likes or wants to emulate so that way I can best serve them. It's so cliche to say, "Oh, I want to sound like something no one's ever heard before!" Totally a viable answer, I get it. But it's not about originality anymore, it's about blending a unique mix of influences that exist into something that is super new and exciting. A drum loop that hooks you in, but then add a whacko synth? Totally what I like. Songwriting wise, the questions are a lot more typical. What do you not feel comfortable singing about? What do you want the vibe of the song to be? etc. etc.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For songwriting, I definitely put the flow and melody together before I even write a single word! I will listen to a beat that's sent to me and just ad lib a melody with nonsensical syllables until I start to really really like way it sounds. I usually pick a title that the beat reminds me off and then write lyrics based off that. With clients that send me a pre-made beat that they want me to song write for, I ask them what THEY think the song should be about and I work around what THEY would want to sing! Production wise, I usually map out the project first like you know I'll say after 4 beats I want a crazy cracked-out 808 to hit every 3 beats or whatever. And I'll meticulously plan out everything like the Virgo rising I am. I don't tap a single drum in Ableton until I've mapped out the project completely. I'll know how long a song is going to be before I even lay down a keys track!
