Interview with 8X8 BOCCI

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I produced on chainz felt like cappin project & it felt good because there was only like 6 records and all of them were producers like Timbaland, TM, Cardo,Mike Will & Zaytoven and to see my name listed next to those guys was an honor. i grew up influenced (& still) by them

  3. Q: How would you describe your style?

  4. A: Psychedelic meets streets/trap.. I like using distortions/phaser & a lot of reverb/reversed reverbs!

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: digital because its what ive grown up on. got love for analog but i dont really care to hear a trap kick go through a ssl4G or anything analog.. there a plug-in for that too!

  8. A: Quality!!

  20. A: hiphop/rap/trap R&B/soul

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  23. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  24. A: my production mindset, it betters the session if im editing, especially when clients bring 2 tracks in.. i kind of look at it as a demo or an idea from the original producer. sometimes i leave it depending on the vibe or direction other times i rearrange. the hook (part in the beat) on the 2 track may work better as a verse or in the intro can be the hook all depends on the direction.

  25. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  26. A: Mike Dean, KY , Mike Bozzi, Ali , Tumay
