Major credits? (artist/song)
Right now I don’t have any credits that would be considered major. I have worked with some of the biggest artists in my country, but that’s a relatively small scene even though it seems to be growing very fast. But I actually got a heads up from 88Glam’s producer that they’re working on a beat by me & Yung Dza. I don’t wanna spoil it though so we’ll just have to wait and see.
The “biggest” song I produced is by Yzomandias (Logic) called Kawasaki which has over 6 million hits.
How old are you? I’m 20 years old.
Anything funny or crazy ever happen in this game we call rap? Not particularly. Only thing I can think of would be the way I got my first ever placement. Literally got it just because my friend’s laptop didn’t work one day. He produced a song on this album and the rapper needed some changes done to it so he hit me up if I could do it instead and somehow I ended up on the album too.
Where are you from? I’m from Prague (Czech Republic). Born & raised.
How long have you been producing? Why/How did you get into it? I’ve been producing for like 3 years. I got into it when I was 17. I was always a huge fan of the music behind all these rap records. When I found out how to make the music on my own I just fell in love with it.
What’s the dopest thing to happen to you since you started making music and releasing product? Probably seeing people going ape shit to records I produced during live shows. That’s always an amazing feeling. Also making a ton of money (relatively) from online sales in a month was a huge thing for me.
Who are your biggest influences? Other than my friends & family? Back when I first started I was really into Cardiak and Jahlil beats etc. Nowadays I really fuck with Southside, Murda, Metro…
Want to give any shoutouts? Shout out to y’all for doing this interview with me!
What is something about you people would be surprised to know? Being from Czech Republic is surprising to everyone. I’m pretty sure a lot of people couldn’t point it out on a map. Also the fact I used to play flute.
Whats your process for making a beat? I always start with the melody or flip a dope sample first. Then I do the drums in no particular order.
What do your beats normally cost? Depends on the beat & the artist. I do leases like a lot of people but exclusives could go from like $400 to like $1500.
Any stories on how you got some of your placements? The one I said earlier about how my friend’s laptop didn’t work. I also got one when my other friend tagged me in a tweet by a rapper asking for beats. I would’ve never seen it if he hadn’t.
What Hardware or software do you use? is there any reason why you like to particularly use what you use? I make beats on FL Studio 12. I’ve tried Reason and Ableton when I first started but FL is just perfect for me. Only hardware I really use is a small Akai midi keyboard.
How many leases or beats do you think you sold in 2017? I don’t really keep track that much but I guess a couple hundred for sure.
What are your plans for 2018? Getting my first major placement, getting more sales online. Maybe get in shape cause sitting around making beats isn’t exactly healthy for you.
Who do you think will part of the new wave in 2018? (producer wise and rapper wise) Lil Pump, Lil Skies, 6ix9ine, Rich The Kid… I can see all of them having a great 2018. Producer wise I don’t know.
