When producing, I'll either have a beat that someone will be inspired by to work with, or they will have an idea or something already written and have me with around their idea, which I find to be more fun and a nicer result.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I work in 2 separate studios, a home set up for my music production, and a recording studio in the city of Halifax for vocal tracking. My home setup and based around FL Studio and consists of a Roland Juno keyboard, studio monitors and a preamp for recording whatever other sounds. The recording studio works with ProTools and consists of a M Audio ProjectMix controller, a RODE mic, and a pair of Yamaha HS8s.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
My inspiration comes from the old and new greats such as Kanye West, No ID, Just Blaze, Noah "40", J. Cole, Boi-1nda, Travis Scott, Tyler the Creator and Key Wane.
