Any story or stories on how you secured some of your placements?
How I was able to get my first placement with thouxanbandfauni was kind of crazy. I was in my dorm room playing destiny back in 2015 and listening to some music on soundcloud and all of sudden, fauni’s song “Park My Car” started playing. I instantly paused the game and started vibing out to it. I sold the beat on my beatstore but i didn’t know exactly who bought it until i heard the song months later because I had only sold the beat once. I hit him up to get credit for the song about a week later and he asked me to send him a couple more beats that eventually turned into his songs “Gorgeous” and “Wock <3” and we’ve been working together since.

I’m really tall, about 6′ 7.
Whats your process for making a beat?
Usually before i make a beat, I kind of already have an idea of what i usually want to make, depending on my mood at the time, and i start off with adding a melody and then hihats, claps, snares, etc. Then i lay it out, play the beat over and over for a little while to check for any errors or if i want to change something up or add something; and then if all sounds well, i mix and master the beat then mix it down.

about $2,000

what are your plans for 2018?
To travel more and to work in person with some of my favorite producers and artist.
Do you receive royalties for any of your beats? and also this is something that alot of younger producers don’t know to much about so if you can share any insights on royalties, that would be highly appreciated.
Yes i do receive royalties for a few of my beats and one thing that younger or smaller producers can stay away from are “work for hire” contracts and if the song they produced is going to be on an album or mixtape that is going to be on all major streaming cites and services; they need to get a spreadsheet and when they get a contract, read every word and detail carefully so that you are getting your fair share.
