How was 2016 for you?

It was a good year for me cause I feel I have evolved into who I am as a producer. Ive done remixes for big artist and started working with other big name producers.

TRACK
FUNK SOUL
ORIGINAL 
Can you tell us what your favourite thing is about your  track?

I love the vocals “Funk, Soul and Rock n Roll “ and I enjoyed writing it with some great producers BBK and Shade K.

Can you tell us about new project you will be working on 2017?

I am currently working on something for Funky Flavor I have never attempted or really heard of anyone attempting but I am remixing 2 Colombo Originals into 1 remix!!!

Imagine yourself walking into the studio; please may you talk me through a typical day?

I usually sit at my desk and just listen to either what Ive already started or tracks that I like a few times while I get my head right and ready to start writing. Then Ill begin writing.


 What are your habits?  

I like to start from the beginning and write my track out to the end and then come back and delete or change what I don't care for or if its too much. Then go to eq it all and do my mix down before mastering.


How do you go about choosing what software and plug-ins you use?

I had Logic Pro X built in my Mac when I had it built to produce. A lot of the bigger producer talked highly of it also. For plugins I usually go with whats being recommended the most or whats gonna fit with what Im trying to accomplish.


What’s the one piece of DJ/production gear you can’t live without?
I would have to say my Komplete Kontrol 61 keyboard.

Any particular artists/dj’s/ producers that really influenced you?

I would say like a Stanton Warriors or Icey.

How’s the  music scene in this moment in your country?

The breaks scene is really a dying thing in the USA, but there are some places where its still alive and having events.

Often particular cities are linked to certain sounds and sub genres. Do you think living in your city is reflected in your music?

No not at all. I live in New Orleans and the music here is mostly hip-hop bounce or Trap or blues music.
