Interview with BKO
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm currently working on mastering my next album, Shadow Boyz. It's been in the works for the last year & every track has been bounced and recording. Now it's pencils down & time to be mixed.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Hire me for who I am. I am passionate about music, but more of the music that brings value to the listener. If you want to make a track that sticks with people - I'm your guy.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with an Artist like Kid Cudi one day. As a 21-year-old, I feel there is so much to learn from someone of his caliber.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be afraid to be yourself. If you're attempting to get into music just because you want the life/sound of a popular artist, it's important to understand how they got there. And that was by being themself.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I tend to base my work on mostly the sub-genres of hip-hop, such as emo-rap/trap. Regardless, I've made songs that could be classified as straight rap or pop.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Efficient workflow and discipline. I'm constantly recording & jotting down new verses and hooks, rarely getting the frowned upon, "Writer's Block". When I have I deadline, I stick to it. With that being said, I ensure that all tracks have the potential to move someone, or hit home.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Versatility. I love that term & all of its meanings. Whether that includes making an emo-rap love song, a club beat, or something more fast-paced, calling for freestyles. I love hearing the transition of energy between different vibes. I'll never be caught up within one niche of music.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It all depends on the day. I mostly enjoy recording at night as there is a natural vibe and essence that brings verses to life. Once I get into a rhythm and ideas start to flow, I can record a track rather quickly.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I currently have a studio set up primarily for recording vocals. I mostly work with beats sent to me through LogicPro, recording all of my audio with an AudioTechnica Microphone & a Scarlett plug-in.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Growing up, I always was fascinated by the versatility Kid Cudi possessed. As I grew older, I still vibed with Cudi but latched on to new sounds from artists such as JuiceWRLD, Trippie Redd, Travis Scott, etc.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I provide to others as a motivator within music. I tend to see the end project or master of a beat that has the potential to be a great track. As a songwriter, that often includes creating a beautiful hook or verse that an artist can run with.
