Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.

ENGLISH: I started in music very unexpectedly. One day, I went to my cousin’s house where he and a friend were learning how to produce and create music, and I was there playing soccer. Before then, I had never thought of becoming a music producer.

ESPAÑOL: Empecé en la música de una manera inesperada, cuando fui a casa de un primo que estaba aprendiendo a crear música con otro amigo y me mostraron cómo se hacía la música yo solo estaba jugándolo al fútbol y no se me pasaba por la mente ser productor musical.

Ovy in the Studio

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

ENGLISH: When I went to my cousin’s house that day, one of his friends showed me FL Studio for the first time in my life. At that time I didn’t even know how to write a melody or what a plugin was, and at that moment, my life changed. FL Studio was like entering a new world and galaxy. From then on it became my temple — the place where I disconnect from everything else and create my music, sounds, and art.

ESPAÑOL: Cuando fui a casa de mi primo ese día uno de los chicos que estaba ahí me mostró el FL Studio por primera vez en mi vida, yo no sabía cómo hacer una melodía, ni sabia que era un plug-in y en ese momento mi vida cambió fue como entrar en un mundo en otra galaxia y desde entonces el FL Studio es como mi templo mi lugar donde me desconecto y creo mi sonido mi música, mi arte.

Is there anything else you would like to tell us?

ENGLISH: FL Studio is my favorite software. A lot of my colleagues have told me to use other software programs, but I will never leave FL Studio.
