Rob, when and how you got started making beats?
‘I started making beats 4-5 years ago (thanks to WoodyBeatpecker teaching me how to get into it).
As a teenager I’ve been in a band playing e-bass, but never understood what i did to be honest! I just start feeling it and go with the flow. d# or fminor, dude what? I’ve never used notes or something. My most important gear is my ear.’
Who has influenced your sound?
‘It’s hard to say… because i just try to be my own influencer!:D ..but there a still many producer and people that I’m looking up to:
and lot more…. ‘
How would you define your style?
‘Classic boombap or a modern trap kinda stuff.. it’s the one or the other or even sometimes both combined. I like atmospheric vibes a lot.
But in most cases, I do how I feel.’
Where do you start a beat?
‘It depends on my actual mood.
Sometimes I need that kicking drums with a hardcore snare.. and I start putting that together.. and sometimes I love to hear that same sample 2 hours in a row and get the main vibe right first.’
