A: Earphones! You know that feeling when you turn up to the gym and realized you left them at home? Imagine doing that in a desert. Nope. Laptop, would there be wifi though? Hotspot maybe? Samson CO1 USB Microphone, would drop a mixtape called SOS Portable Charger, does that count as gear? I need my towel for sure, deserts can be noisy. Gotta have that vocal booth.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Seriously, just over 2 years. It started with gaming and drawing lots of anime. I drew mangas, comics and I made game montages and fan trailers on Youtube. Then I fell in love with film making, which is when I discovered I was fascinated by the arts and entertainment industry. So naturally, the music eventually found its way to me.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: This is always difficult to answer as I'm very experimental but generally intense, oriental and cinematic.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Bryson Tiller, Simply for the reason that he's my favorite artist of all time, and I would love to see what we could produce. In terms of joint live performance, Scarlxrd or Travis Scott. That would be insane.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be too much of a perfectionist, it slows down the creative process and is the enemy of progress. Us as artist, producers, and engineers can spend way too much time obsessing over the tiniest details and it slows our productivity.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For me as an artist, the things around me inspire me the most. It starts with me either producing a beat myself, being sent to me or finding one online. Then I start with the melody, humming and seeing what works. Throw in some off the dome freestyling, clean it up, mix it up, master it. We ready to go.
