18-year-old Indian producer Zypitano is making a name for himself at a very young age, having already had multiple platinum hits and worked extensively with Rod Wave. Now based in Canada, his music has been featured in the Madden 22 video game and we’re sure more is on the way. Check out our interview with him below!
Tell us about yourself and how you got into music.
I’m Zypitano; an 18-year-old 3-time RIAA Certified Platinum and Billboard #2 charting music producer and sample maker from India. I was previously based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), but I recently moved to Toronto, Canada. I’ve been passionate about music ever since I was a child. When I was young, my parents had enrolled me in music and keyboard classes for South Indian classical music. I wanted to try making music when I came across YouTube videos of how popular songs from 2016 and 2017 were made in just 2-5 minutes. I first installed the FL Studio free trial and started producing back in October 2017, but it wasn’t until mid-2018 that I started making proper music and beats. I’ve been working on music ever since.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
I started off on the free trial of FL Studio 12 and kept experimenting and figuring out how the features in the software worked. Over time, my understanding of it improved, and I got more comfortable using the software. FL Studio means the world to me because it has played one of the most important roles in my music career so far. It has also helped me connect with other FL Studio users in the same music scene and has allowed me to work with them. Most importantly, it has one of the easiest and most user-friendly interfaces for a DAW, making the learning process really easy.

Tell us about your work and some of the artists you have worked with.
I make beats and melodic compositions/samples. I have most notably worked with artists such as Lil Baby and Rod Wave on their song “Rags2Riches” and I have also worked with other artists like Lil Durk, NLE Choppa, Calboy, Hotboii. I also love working with underground/upcoming artists who have a strong vision and passion for music. In addition to artists, I also work with talented producers and musicians from all over the world, many of whom have great credits too.
Tell us about your production environment and the gear you use.
My production environment is rather simple. It consists of FL Studio 20 on my laptop, an Akai MPK MINI 2 keyboard, a computer keyboard, a mouse, and a microphone.
Is there anything else you would like to tell us?
If there is one thing I would like to tell, it is that I am forever grateful to the developers of FL Studio for making such an amazing DAW. They have made the creation and production of music easily accessible to people all around the world with this software.
