I've also worked with Salah Edin from the Netherlands plus many more.
In 2014 I released my first solo mixtape "8null8". Now I'm working on my next solo release, but im also producing a lot of beats for other artists. Watch out in the future.
How did you start using FL Studio & what does it mean to your productions?
I think i was 12 or 13 years old when a friend introduced me to FL Studio. Since then I never switched to another DAW. The workflow in FL Studio is very good. I still haven't found out what every button is for, you never stop learning. Its not far from the idea in your mind to the melody in the Piano roll.
Tell us about your production environment & toys?
I'm working at home on a laptop and some plugins. I got a MIDI keyboard, some studio monitor speakers and a nice big screen, so I can see my projects without scrolling. Thats enough to create. Mostly I go to the studio to work it out. Sometimes I record live instruments like guitars, to give the music a more organic feeling. I never learned to play an instrument but I have a very musical family.
