Where are you from?
I was born in Brooklyn, New York. Raised in Ghana, West Africa since infancy to about eleven years and returned to the US.
When did you start making music?
I started making music in 2002; high school.
How do you describe your music?
Electronic, original, unique, luxurious, sexy, dance, dark, bright, and sometimes psychedelic.
Favorite moment from your career?
My recent favorite has to be when I played a set at Photo City in Rochester, New York.
Who is your biggest musical inspiration?
My biggest musical inspiration is Timbaland. I learned my music production skills by listening to the music he produced for himself and other artists.
What is your producing software?
FL Studio. I started producing with it when it was still called Fruity Loops.
What other things do you do besides making music?
I DJ live. I write songs. I listen to demos for my record label Neitreug and sign songs.
What is your favorite track of all time?
‘Hit My Heart’ by Benny Benassi. The first time I heard it was incredible and still is when I do. I instantly fell in love with the synths, the sounds, and the arrangement of the track. I literally had it on repeat in my car for weekends.
What is your best-producing tip?
Let the song flow. Sometimes trying to intentionally produce a certain style is nice. But I find it more enjoyable and it adds a special value when the track production flows in its natural direction and becomes an original style when complete.
Why did you start making music?
I really enjoy being able to create songs, performing them live, promoting and sharing them with the world. As a child, music sparked my interest. At one point I wondered if there were people in the radio singing, took a screw driver and opened it to take a look. I’d memorize songs and sing along with my sisters. Eventually I started writing my own rap and song lyrics. Then I started producing beats, performing live, and now also DJ.
What are your goals for the future?
To play more shows, collab with more artists, and make more friends.
What advice can you give for young music producers/DJs?
My advice is to make good music and try as much to collab when possible.
Please write a message to your fans.
I appreciate all my fans. I want them to have hope as these crazy times pass and things start to get better. I also want them to stream and download my new future rave style single ‘Hey (Original Mix)’ dropping February 6th on Neitreug Records.
