Indian-American, Grammy-nominated producer 6ix has achieved immense success in tandem with his most frequent collaborator, Logic. After a fateful meeting with the rapper, the two have had intertwined careers ever since, with 6ix being the executive producer on every Logic album along the way. While he continues to work closely with the rapper, 6ix, who has been an FL Studio user from the start, is beginning to branch out in new ways, and we were thrilled to hear more about his background and upcoming plans. Read on to learn more.

Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.

I came out of Maryland — first generation Indian American. I was in death metal bands and while in pre-med at the University of Maryland, I would compete in local beat battles at night. That’s where I met the rapper Logic, back when he had maybe five fans. We locked in together, put out a few mixtapes and within a year everything changed. I dropped out of school my senior year, moved to LA, and never looked back.

How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?

In my freshman year of college, my roommate was making beats on FL Studio. He showed me the ways and I downloaded it myself. Since then, it’s all I’ve ever used. I’ve had this program on dozens of generations of crummy laptops, with everything from broken speakers to latency. I’ve come a long way from those days but even in my current home studio, with state of the art everything, I’m still opening FL Studio in every session.

Tell us about your production environment and the gear you use.

Like I mentioned, I have an incredible home studio with instruments, speakers, everything I need. But the truth is, I’ve made most of my best beats on the couch, because FL Studio has everything I need and such versatility — I produce wherever I feel most comfortable.

Tell us about your work and some of the artists you have worked with.

For about my whole career, I’ve been Logic’s executive producer on album after album. We’ve made some incredible songs together and garnered one the most loyal and passionate fanbases in the world. To be able to grow in a singular lane like that and have the trust that we have between each other is something that I do not take for granted. Instead of sending beats, or one-off sessions (which I’m still always game for), we get to plan one, two, three albums ahead. I love being able to think that way about music. I also love to get in the studio with other artists, and plan to do much more of that along with some other fun projects that are to be announced.

What is your top FL Studio tip for up-and-coming producers?

My top FL Studio tip is honestly just spending as much time on that program as possible. Put in the hours. Over the years, I’ve developed my own style in the program but couldn’t have been taught that. My bro, who is an incredible producer, uses FL Studio completely differently than me.

Is there anything else you would like to tell us?

I have some very exciting announcements to make in 2024. Something that has been in the works for a while is my debut solo album. But I can’t say too much on that just yet. Also, I have a community for fans and producers on Discord. Come hang out, chat FL Studio, and submit loops and samples. Server: @6ixworld
