Q&A / Lotus Beats
What is your creative process like when making music?
I start my day by taking a walk along the beach listening to lofi artists that help inspire my creative workflow. Once I’m in the studio I sit down with a coffee and start by laying down a drum pattern. I probably spend far too much time selecting the perfect snare, but to me, it's super important! After that, I pick up my guitar to begin writing a chord progression, then a melody, and so forth.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
“If there is one rule, an unbreakable rule, it's that patience is necessary for greatness”.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Why?
Amsterdam. After my visit, I fell in love with the city. Beautiful architecture, great people, endless things to see, and all-around good vibes.
What or who inspired you to start making music?
After studying Music Production/technology at College, I became obsessed with pursuing a career in music. I met so many great people who introduced me to so much new music I didn't know existed. I loved the idea of collaborating with other musicians and sharing ideas and techniques with one another. I don't think there has been a single day since then that I haven't opened up Logic Pro to start creating.
Aside from lofi/chill beats, what is your favorite music genre?
I’m a huge fan of Neo Soul. Artists like Tom Misch, Jordan Rakei, and Anderson. Paak. I love how it incorporates multiple genres such as Jazz, RnB, Soul and Funk. I think it’ll be a timeless genre.
