Scroll down to content

It keeps happening, I keep seeing people liking my content on IG and Twitter. This time, Twitter specifically, which is rare. But I saw this account I didn’t know kept retweeting and liking some of my stuff and when I went on the profile and saw it was the producer Morteh. I was pretty geeked. Not going to lie. You may or may not know who he is but I been seeing him on YouTube for a minute.  I reached out to him through DM and he agreed to do an interview. Scroll down to find out more and check out some of his beats available!

Credits?

  • Egovert – Van gogh & #LetEGOFUCK.
  • Got some stuff coming with WiFisFuneral & Roy Purdy soon.

How old are you? I am 17.

Funniest reason/excuse a rapper ever gave you for not having the money for a beat on time? I never really have anyone not paying on time as I require the payment upfront. Although, I get people in my DMs regularly asking to buy then I never hear from them again – As well as the odd one who says, ‘’hold onto the beat until next month, I gotchu’’.
Where are you from?  I am from Belfast, Northern Ireland.

How long have you been producing? Why/How did you get into it? I’ve been producing properly for 6 months-ish. What really got me into producing actually started out as me wanting to become a rapper. Then I realised how hard it is to blow up on that side of the industry so I started producing.

What’s the dopest thing to happen to you since you started making music and releasing product? The dopest thing that’s happened is getting messages from huge artists saying they fuck with my sound. Acknowledgement is the best feeling.

Who are your biggest influences? My biggest producing influence 100% has to be Ronny J. He is unbelievably underrated for the amount of work he does.
Want to give any shoutouts? Shoutout Egovert and the entirety of $$.
What do you find is the best platform or avenue of selling your beats? Youtube or Traktrain. I kinda abandoned my traktrain, so youtube is where its at for me.
What is something about you people would be surprised to know? Probably that I’m from Northern Ireland.

Whats your process for making a beat? It all depends. Usually I’ll spend a good chunk of the cook-up searching for / making the melody. But once I get that out of the way, I just go ham on the drums.

What do your beats normally cost? It all depends once again. I like helping the smaller artists out by working with prices that’s more suitable for them. But on average, 75-200$.
What is the most you have made from one beat? Currently 200$
 

Any stories on how you got some of your placements? Not really any cool ones, but the Roy Purdy one was weird. He messaged me at like 4am trying to buy my ‘’Beetlejuice’’ beat.

What Hardware or software do you use? is there any reason why you like to particularly use what you use? I use FL & FL only. It was the first DAW I ever tried. Ever since I got it, I’ve fallen in love with it. I don’t see myself ever switching over to any other DAW, ever.

How many leases or beats do you think you sold in 2017?
What are your plans for 2018?Hit 20k on youtube and get more placements.

Whose gonna be the new wave? Me & Egovert without a doubt. Mark my words.
