Who are you?
What do you do?
Where do you get your inspiration/drive?
I draw my inspiration from anywhere and everywhere; I am inspired by sounds in general. I could be stuck in traffic and the sound of my windshield wipers might inspire me to go to the studio and make a beat. A large part of my inspiration comes from listening to other artists’ musical compositions. I enjoy hearing how other people interpret/manipulate sound; hearing another artist’s composition might point me in a certain direction or inspire me to experiment with sound in a new and different way
When did you realize you had talent?
At around age 19, I started making beats just because it was something I liked to do for fun. I started taking production seriously when people began telling me they liked my beats and that this was something I should stick with. So I decided I would really go for it and my career just grew from there. I worked hard, made connections, improved as I learned more, and developed my signature sound and style. Of course, as an artist, I am developing constantly and will never stop learning.
Why will you never give up?
I love music. Producing is my outlet; it allows me to express myself and connect to others on a unique level. It’s my passion – you can’t walk away from something you’re passionate about. So be on the lookout for hot new beats from Dirty Knocc!
