Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.
My name is 99Makaveli, a producer based out of Toronto, Canada. Music has always been influential in my life – particularly because I grew up in an environment surrounded by family members who are passionate about it. I started to learn about music production during my senior year of high school after watching videos of Wondagurl and London on da Track, showing their creative processes. Once I began learning, I fell in love with producing and 5 years later, that feeling hasn’t changed.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
Initially, I used a different DAW; however, many producers within the community encouraged me to try FL Studio. Once I began using FL, I realized it elevated my workflow – especially in terms of drum programming. Since then, it has become my primary DAW.
Tell us about your work and some of the artists you have worked with.
I enjoy producing a wide range of genres, such as R&B, Trap, Drill, and Dancehall. This diverse range has allowed me to work with a variety of artists, including Bipolar Sunshine, Chip, 917 Rackz, Young Devyn, and Numidia.
