Tällä kertaa pikaisessa haastattelussa Frisco-tuottaja Metropolis Music.
What’s up, Metropolis? Introduce yourself to our readers.
I am the second half of the “Metropolis Music / Think Bigg Vision” a label me and Bigg
Quint from U.D.I started about ten years ago. We began with the “Fifth Element” and from their
the label expanded to date we have six albums, and at least 150 singles.
How did you start making music in the first place?
Growing up in San Francisco and in the area me and Bigg Quint come from music was
apart of everything we did. The 80’s era is a era that is underrated and can be debated as the
best music era ever. If you was a square or apart of the mobb, you used music as a means to
express what we were experiencing growing up during the birth of the crack epidemic
Where do you find your artistic inspiration?
I get my inspiration from pretty much anything that makes me feel. Lately its been the
Bay, our sound is unlike any other coast. The Mekanix are producers from Oakland that I keep
on repeat or Dj Fresh or Traxamillion. Bassline is a bay signature and bass.
What is the best part of making beats?
Making beats can be like falling into a trance state and while in that trance, its no other
feeling like it. Its like your outside the matrix.
What would you define your style?
My style is unorthodox slap. My style is no style like Bruce Lee, I flow but with force.
Do you have any advice for producers working on their craft?
Make music from the heart, and dont let nobody change your beat concept. Create a
tag and put it on every work like a signature. Stand your ground and network. If producers
would connect more often can you imagine the music that would be made? Find other
producers and build and share with one another. I’m always ready to work with artist and my
famous saying is “It Only Takes One”.
Who are your favorite producers who have inspired you when it comes making beats?
Teddy Riley has got to be one of the most underrated and dopest producers every to do
it. The Mekanix of course because they keep the basslines slappin. Dj Fresh.
What is the first album you ever owned? How did you acquire it?
Stevie Wonder “Songs In the Key of Life” was a gift from father and that album opened
me up to melody.
What’s your relationship with Bigg Quint of U.D.I.?
My brother from another mother. We have known one another since 1977. We are the
owners of the Metropolis Music / Think Bigg Vision label.
Outside of music, do you have other hobbies/interests?
I’m working on a movie script, book, and SoundCloud project. Meditate.
What is next for you?
I just dropped a four single with Bonnie Legion and Jove Mayse two artist that I’ve
recently hooked up with on Choon. The Metropolis Camp is dropping a album and Cyba a
female rapper from London is dropping a project in February 2019.
