Interview with ImpacKto
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: There are two recent projects that I am proud of. One is my song "Dance". That I fuse rap, with some salsa (Latin sounds, mixed with G Funk sounds). I totally wrote the song, and added some ideas for the beat. The other project is "Voltaje" (it has not yet been released). It is lyrics and music made by me.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on developing my music career as a Latin Trap, Reggaeton, and Latin Hip Hop artist. I am starting to exploit my abilities as a beatmaker, to help other talents find their flow, and their sound.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Honestly no. I discovered SoundBetter by researching ways, tools, and spaces to develop my musical career. I am 100% focused on making money with what I love, and exploiting my capabilities to the fullest
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. Because the universe of sounds it has is bigger, I like it better, and it is not limited to a physical space. The digital has made the processes faster, and better, so that musicians can work in a more competitive and collaborative way. I love digital sound
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Help them find, or develop their identity, musically speaking. Work hard to add value to your sound; with creativity, and hard work
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Make music that motivates people, gives them joy, fun, energy, good vibes. Give a soundtrack to people's lives, give good music to the delight of those who understand, love, and appreciate it
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Not taking people into account, what each musical style is, conceptually. Close only to the theoretical, and not connect with the fanatic. Not enjoying the movement, and what you are doing
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: 1- 3 References of how you want your project to sound (it does not have to be 3 songs). 2- What do you want to achieve artistically? (and if possible, how far do you want your project to go) 2- What kind of people do you want to reach?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have at least two clear references of how your project should sound (a clear aesthetic)
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 1- MacBook (With Ableton Live and libraries, Nexus and Kontact) 2 - Arturia Midi Controller. 3- Some condenser microphone 4- Interface 5- money for advertisements, and digital investment
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been writing songs since I am almost a child. In 2011 I started in freestyle battles, I reached national competitions. In 2018 I seriously set out to make music. I have about a year studying, and practicing creating beats, but since I was a teenager I tried, and experimented, different ideas, rhythms, aesthetics, structures, and sounds with different DAWs.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I can write a song in different ways. I can freestyle melodies and flows over the beat and create chorus an verse liryc over that flow. I can make a beat and then give that sound concept a lyric.
