- In depth understanding of percussion sounds - Knowledge of steel drums and other natural tropical sounds
I am a producer coming out of the 868 aka Trinidad & Tobago. I make music that inspire and I am never satisfied with mediocrity. I do this out of passion for music and hopefully one day get to play big festivals such as Miami Ultra and Tomorrowland. I am still and always learning new things in the world of production and enjoy feedback. I strive to make music that works with the artist and not encourage artists to change their style in order to work with the music. Always be true to yourself and you will succeed.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
