I am actually engineering a lot on there more but it sounds good and he’s loving it as well m. I just love when I look back and listen to my work nowadays compared to earlier in my career.

Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog but I mix in the box 100% so i guess you can say 50/50 … depends how I’m feeling I guess but analog is always going to be the original sounding signal.

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I was introduced to fl studio in 2009 where I started making beats. I didn’t have no way to record and had a slight budget so once I found out that I could record in fl studio producer edition I became fascinated with the art form of the whole process. That’s when I became more interested in engineering my own music which gave me more opportunities to mix others music as it made me better also with studying and taking lessons from the greats.
