Interview with petebeats
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: L.O.V.E Thy Enemy. (Out on all platforms) This tape had a lot of emotion behind it. My friend and fellow Artist was going through some things so anyone who listened/ listens to this tape immediately gets taken into a euphoric vibe. You feel the emotion and pain behind every piano stroke and verse. Was definitely a masterpiece. My role was the producer
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A beat tape with Ace™️ Dropping an 808-mafia inspired beat tape A project with Z3N *hopefully*

A: Laptop, Solar Charger, Bluetooth Speaker, Headphones, Studio Monitors (if there's no power available replace this with a Pocket Wi-Fi so I can still receive jobs lol)
