What first drew you into music?
Back when I was 10 or so I started getting into mixing music. I would mix mostly regional mexican music. I would actually go with my uncles when they would DJ at parties like quinceaneras & weddings. By the time I was about 13 or so I was actually given the chance to start spinning records with them. Honestly it took them awhile to trust me and I don’t blame them. They are much older than I was with way more experience and well I was just a 13 year old child. However, after the first party I played with them they started trusting me more and more. I eventually bought my own equipment and started djing at parties on my own.
Your track “Introvert” is absolutely amazing! How did you achieve such a great signature sound in such a short time? Also, what is your creative process like?
First of all thank you! Well, introvert had many forms actually. I had sent over an Idea to Nathan and he wrote the lyrics, recorded them and sent it over. The first version had a little bit of porter feels and after I was done with it I sat on it for a couple weeks and decided it wasn’t something I wanted to release. I was going to forget the whole record all together until I started experimenting with some techniques I learned on youtube. (big shout out to youtube btw) I was able to create in my opinion something more Indie and worth releasing.
Going over your Soundcloud we can tell you love experimenting with new sounds. Can you tell us more about your studio setup and some of your favorite plugins/instruments?
Yes, I feel like my music has been a bit diverse over the past years ranging from Electro House to more melodic/bass driven music. I started producing with some second had broken headphones, used laptop and a cracked version of FL Studio. Over the years I eventually was able to buy better equipment. So as of now I use two krk Rokit 6’s and with an M Audio interface. I use a PC I built windows of course accompanied by DUO monitors and my DAW of choice is ableton. I also use an M Audio keyboard.
Your music sounds very organic and authentic. Do you play any real-life instruments?
Thank you for the compliment! and well I used to practice the trumpet and drums but not as much now. I actually just took up the violin. A buddy of mine has been teaching me. I love watching live bands and like going to symphonies often. Most of my inspiration comes from there.
What are your musical goals for the future?
I hope to be able to collab with as many vocalists as possible. It’s hard to do that at the moment because many that I really want to work with charge so much money and unfortunately at this point in my career I am not able to pay the talent fee that most of these vocalist charge but all in due time. I do want to start playing more shows soon. I want people to experience my music. I want to reach out to more people than what I currently do. When I released my record “Bricked” with Milano The Don many people reached out to me to thank me on how this record helped them get through a tough time and honestly that means the world to me. I want to continue to do this!
What are your goals for the coming months? Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
One of my major goals that im almost done with is getting my degree. I’m almost done so that’s a relief. After that I will focus a lot more on music and improve my skill set. I want to play a lot more shows and that is now slowly happening. I want to eventually release an album but it has to be perfect in my eyes and be coherent.
