Who is UNRTHDX? My real name is Sergen and I’m 22 years old. I’m from Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and produce by the name UNRTHDX.
How long have you been producing? Almost 4 years now.
How would you describe your sound? Mellow Trap.
Why did you start making music? I just got so much joy from listening to (hip hop) music that at a certain point I felt that I wanted this music to be a part of my life. So without even knowing anything about producing I bought a small keyboard and watched tutorials for weeks and that’s basically how it all started. I just had the feeling that I had to do it, it felt right.
What’s the dopest thing to happen to you since you started making music and releasing product? For me the dopest thing to do is collaborating with artists and hearing dope artists on my instrumentals. Also I remember the first time I ever heard a dope artist on my beat, it was a French artist. It’s the best feeling ever, working together with people who are also grinding and working hard on their own unique sound. I’m also happy with the success we’re having with Grillabeats currently. We just reached the 150K subscribers on Youtube and I feel like we’re just getting started.
Who are your biggest influences? I always like to search for inspiration and learn about visions of other people, there are a lot of people that inspire me. But as a producer I have to say that Kanye West is a big inspiration for me.
What do you look for when your collaborating with artists? I always look for artists who stick to their self and have their own personality. Most of the times those type artist also already have some tracks with well known artists which also can help a lot. Upcoming artists I’m working with currently already have tracks with A$ap Ferg, Ty Dolla $ign, Dave East, Trey Songz etc. for example.
Did you work with artist in your own country beside your international work? Yes (like Ali B, Keizer & Adje), but my focus has definitely always been on working with international artists, so that’s why I work a lot with American artists.
What is you main goal within your music career? To share my vision with the world, make them think about their life and actions. And that one day I can inspire as many people as possible to follow their hearts. That I have the chance to do this by following my dreams is a blessing.
Which 5 artists will always be in your playlist? Nas, Frank Ocean, J. Cole, Kanye West & The Weeknd.
Did you ever finished your school? Yes, I have a bachelor degree in Communication & Multimedia Design.
Want to give any shoutouts? Shoutout to the Grillabeats squad.
What do you want to say to other young producers who are inspired by you? Be yourself. If everyone in this world did what they truly feeling, we all would be unique as fuck.
