Q&A / Tmpecho
What or who inspired you to start making music?
I honestly don't know exactly what inspired me first to make music. I remember finding lofi hip-hop and listening to it in my car for the first time. Immediately I was hooked. At that point, I was around 12. I needed to make something similar. After that, I discovered the legends such as Dilla, Madlib, etc. and it has been a rolling snowball ever since.
What is your creative process like when making music?
It's different for every track. Sometimes I hear a song and feel inspired, other times I just sit down with my daw or my 303/404sx and fiddle around until something sounds good. I don't like the idea of having a recipe for making a song. That's why I make so much different music.
What inspires you the most in your daily life? Why?
Music. I love listening to and exploring different music. Sometimes it's through Spotify, other times vinyl.
If you could tell every person in the world one thing, what would it be?
It would be to get a hobby. I think hobbies are very important to have and give a lot of happiness.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Why?
I would love to live in Japan. Not that I know Japanese or know anyone there, but Japan is beautiful and the culture is amazing.
What’s one thing about you that surprises people?
Maybe that I love cooking. I love Italian and Japanese cuisine.
