Dizzie put together a really strong demo of my lyrics that meant i couldn't not hire him. His vocal styling was perfect for the track and he produced really strong ad-libs and ideas to go with the main lyrics. It's always great when a singer can bring something extra and understands about providing extra passes in different octaves which non-studio experienced singers can be unaware of.
Interview with Dizzie the Wizard
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be afraid to experiment. Music production is a creative process, so it's important to be open to trying new things. Don't be afraid to experiment with different sounds, instruments, and effects. The more you experiment, the more you'll learn and the better your music will become.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am inspired by a wide range of musicians and music production professionals, including Kanye West, Andre 3000, Machinedrum, SpaceGhostPurrp, and Three 6 Mafia. These artists are all incredibly talented and innovative, and their work has pushed the boundaries of music in different ways. Kanye West is a master of sampling and beat-making, and his music is always sonically interesting and challenging. Andre 3000 is a gifted lyricist and vocalist, and his work is both playful and thought-provoking. Machinedrum is a pioneer of electronic music, and his work is always experimental and forward-thinking. SpaceGhostPurrp is a unique voice in hip-hop, and his music is often dark and atmospheric. Three 6 Mafia is credited with popularizing the Memphis hip hop sound, and their music is raw and energetic.

A: I've been writing music since 2015.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with Andre 3000, Danny Brown, and Childish Gambino on a high-energy space-themed song with driving bass and synths.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Consultation with the client, Contract Agreement, Talk production, Research the topic, Start Drafting Demos, Send for client approval, Recording Final Track Brainstorming: I start by brainstorming ideas for the song, including the topic, the mood, and the sound I want to create. I might take a walk, listen to music, or read poetry to get inspired. Chord progression: Once I have a general idea for the song, I start working on the chord progression. I might play around on the piano or guitar until I find a progression that I like. Melody: Next, I start working on the melody. I might sing or hum the melody until I find something that fits the chord progression and the mood of the song. Lyrics: Finally, I start writing the lyrics. I might start with a few lines and then fill in the rest, or I might write the lyrics all at once. Once I have a basic structure for the song, I start revising and editing. I might change the chord progression, the melody, or the lyrics. I might also add or remove sections of the song. The songwriting process is often iterative, and I might go back and forth between the different steps several times. I don't always follow this exact process, but it gives me a good starting point for writing songs.
