What do you bring to a song?
What's your typical work process?
It depends on the project. I can start off with a drum loop, just sear for an harmonic progression and then add melody, develop a whole arrangement before starting to write a melody,... it just depends

What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I try to catch inspiration from any particular music style or genre I'm asked for at any particular project. Not sticked to any closed sort of music. But for my own music I'm specially inspired by R&B/Soul/Funk professionals in the vein of Prince, Tuxedo, Jamie Lidell, Lewis Taylor, Maurice White, George Clinton, Babyface, Jam & Lewis, Roger Troutman...and so on
