Tell us everything will need to know about you. 

I’m an electronic music producer from Vancouver, Canada. I have been producing since I was 10 years old. I just released my debut EP “CHAPTER IV” and am already working on my next.

.

.

.

State your favourite genre of music and your reason. 

It’s a toss-up between electronic and rap. I love both for the fact there is no limit to how you can express yourself in both of them.

.

.

.

Tell us your experience as a musician. 

I have been around music for my entire life. Before I produced I was in school band. I played the bass and drums. In our books, we had a second where we could write our own music and I spent a lot of time coming up with my own bass lines and drum patterns. When I discovered my first DAW, “FL STUDIO”, I became hooked to making music on my computer. I would spend hours a day trying to figure it out. Skip to today, I am trying to teach myself piano. I feel it’s going well. Also, I picked up DJing about a year ago. It’s cool and all but I’d love to be able to give a more live show.

.

Tell us the theme of your song. 

No theme. It’s an anthem for our city, Vancouver.

.

.

.

Name the people behind your success and thank them on this platform. 

Shout out to my mom.

.

.

.
 
Tell us about your future goals. 

I have too many goals to list on here, but one of my short term goals is to play a show in Europe this year.

.

.

.

Go into detail about your opinion on religion and politics. 

I believe in our holy yeezus.

.

.

.

 
Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans. 

Usually when I invite singers/rappers on my song I will try and convey a message of sorts. A message that will stick out to fans.

.

.

.

 
Explain the changes you have observed so far in the music industry. 

I mean when I started, Soundcloud was still small, Spotify did not exist. My first EP ever… which you can find if you really want to dig, was on Bandcamp but the rapper and I made a bunch of CDs and gave them out. These days it seems physicals are not really a thing and streaming is king.

.

.

.

State the artists you cherish most and your reason. 

Kanye West. He’s a legend. Who else can get on stage and the crowd will get hype by hearing the first note of “Runaway”. Creative genius in my opinion. Other artists I love are Flume, Odesza, J. Dilla, Metro Boomin, etc.

Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics. 

I’m usually the producer of the song… So I don’t really “develop my lyrics”.

.

.

.

Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist. 

I do not sing. The cornerstone of my brand is that I am a producer and that I work with artists…

.

.

.

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the kind of music with genuine message that inspires them. 

Do both. Put both together. Make songs that have a message. Make songs that you can dance to. F***.

.

.

.

 
Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation. 

Experimenting. I always start with chord progressions. I play chords till I find one that strikes a chord, no pun intended. Then I build from there. Although I do have songs that are basically long piano progressions.

.

.

.

 
Go into detail on the recording process of this song. 

Waiting on Declan.wav and Thurston to record it essentially. Took me way too long to organize to record. But basically, they recorded it super quickly then I arranged their vocals etc.
.

.

.

 
Discuss your music performance. 

Intense.

.

.

.

 
Tell us how you will rate yourself as an artist. 

11/10 . Watch out… Danger.
