Jay Wheeler – SOS (co-prod. by Cheo Legendary)

Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.

I’m from Carolina, Puerto Rico and I’ve been surrounded by music from a very young age. I come from a family of musicians; my dad is a salsa pianist and my uncle plays percussion. I’ve been inspired by different music genres and that helped me build my sound over the years. Music has been part of my life since I was a child. In my teenage years I fell in love with reggaeton and hip hop and I was inspired by big producers like Luny Tunes for their unique sound.

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

In high school I signed up for an elective class called Sound Engineering and the professor showed us the FL Studio demo. I was very curious and started trying to make my first beats. I was amazed by how user friendly the program was and I got hooked trying to make beats like Tainy and other reggaeton producers. FL Studio has been very important and helpful with my process creating different sounds.

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

I have been blessed with the opportunity to produce for Bad Bunny, Anuel, Ozuna, Myke Towers, J Balvin, Jay Wheeler and many more.

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

I mainly work on my laptop with headphones. Sometimes I have big studio sessions but I prefer to work from my house. I have a small setup but it’s very comfortable and I love it. I use a midi keyboard but sometimes I like to record live sounds to spark new ideas. Usually I start by looking for a sound or there are times when I start with the drums to create a bounce.

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

For the young producers my advice would be to not focus on trends and try to create your own sound. Practice every day and perfect your sound. 

Is there anything else you would like to tell us?

First I want to thank God for giving me the talent to create. I want to thank FL Studio for allowing me to make my dreams come true and inspire others. FL Studio has changed my life. With discipline and dedication you can achieve anything you put your mind into.
