Hello Potential Collaborators! My name is Roan (my producer alias is Grandmaster Sus) and I am looking to work with artists of all types who are on a limited budget, but still want professional results! I will work for as little as SoundBetter will allow on whatever you need! (Some specifications below.)
I was recently browsing SoundBetter for a vocalist for a track that I have been working on, and came to the unfortunate conclusion that I don't have even close to enough money to afford a majority of the providers on this site. I understand why artists charge what they do, but regardless, I cannot afford them.
The point of the story above, is to hopefully connect with artists who are struggling financially, but still want their music to be heard!
I do not have an impressive list of radio hits, or huge acts that I have worked with, but what I do have is passion for music and a lot of awesome beats and professional plug-ins waiting to make your music sound the best that it possibly can!
I definitely excel in hip-hop/rap, rnb, and pop production, but I am willing to try anything if you're willing to give me a shot!
I work a full-time job as a video editor (I can edit your music video too), so I cannot provide a target date for when things will be finished, as work will have to come first. But I will work as hard as I can to get your project done in a timely manner!
I love working with artists on a track from start to finish, but if you have a project that you're stuck on or need a few finishing touches on, I am happy to work with you on that as well!
I look forward to talking with you about your project and I look forward to making some awesome tunes!
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Interview with Grandmaster Sus
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started playing the drums at 5 years old and music has been a huge part of life since then. I played in a touring jazz group through middle school and high school. I started making beats and producing in high school and have been doing it ever since!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: It's hard to put a finger on what my style is. I like to incorporate elements of multiple genres in all of my productions. I am a huge fan of Pop/EDM and Hip/Hop and I try to include elements of both in all of my beats.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with MGK. I really was not a fan of his early hip-hop stuff, but I really like his recent more pop-punk stuff!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Be careful how many Youtube tutorials you watch because it can easily kill originality!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on hip-hop/rnb and pop tracks.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is definitely beat making, but I'm also super fun.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to think I bring a lot to a song. I'm fairly creative and can assist an artist lyrically if they are in a rut. I am also very musical, so I can fairly accurately add elements to a song that an artist is looking for. I am also a drummer, so I have a good ear for how drums should sound and creative ways to program them!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to begin at the inception of a song. If the artist is using one of my beats, I like to create 8 to 16 bars of the beat at its fullest, so that the artist can get a sense of how the song sounds with most elements in place. Then I like to break everything down and begin to create the full layout of the song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work off of a macbook. I primarily use Studio One 4 as my DAW. I have PreSonus E3.5 monitors and AKG K240 headphones. I have an M-Audio Oxygen 49 Midi Keyboard. I also have a yoga ball chair for posture reasons.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: This is difficult because I have so many inspirations. One of my main inspirations has always been Kanye West. I love his experimental style. I am a drummer, so I've really been digging Travis Barker's productions lately. FINNEAS has also been doing some unique stuff for Billie.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly make beats, but I also edit, mix and master if needed!
