Q: What's your strongest skill?

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring youthfulness and excitement that seems familiar to the audience. We as artist are telling the story, but we have to keep the targeted audience at their seats.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Mainly I'll get my inspiration from specific sound from records if I'm chopping them to create something new. I'll see what which drums would go well with what ever sample I'm working with. There have been times where I'm organizing drums sound and I've build from what has a hold on me. There have been tracks that I've walked away from for a minute, then come back to it if I've thought of a chord progression that is compatible. Usually, add any sound effects if need on any instrument that's on the record.
