Tell us about yourselves and how you got into music?
I've been deejaying for 10 years before going into production. I was mixing Detroit techno, house music, drum'n bass, hip hop beats... I've never been a musician. I've learned production with a friend and two Akai S900 samplers. Our workflow was slow and we were very limited. A very nice way to learn. Now I produce mostly beats.
I've been producing for many turntablists around the world, such as Netik, Unkut, Rafik, Kentaro, Troubl', 9 O'Clock, LigOne, COMA, Skillz... 4 of them got a DMC world title using my production. Many got the second place, a lot of them are national champions.
I also release some tracks and remixes and I signed on Ninja tunes, Peace Off, Plasmapool... I have produced above 20 scratch tools in the past years, the last one was released by Thud Rumble (DJ Q Bert's label) in collaboration with Traktor.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
My brother gave me his old computer (with a very bad sound card). He had Fruity loops (version 4 I think) installed. So I've tried. I made a beat. This first beat was released 2 years later on my first vinyl "Doll's Break".
Tell us about your production environment & toys?
For years I had only a computer, no sound card, no controller. Only one monitor. I like simple things.
