Via Fat Beats “When I finished school in 1999 I didn’t really know what to do with my life. I had just bought my first computer and was killing time by playing games and smoking weed. One day an old friend came by and brought a cracked version of Sonic Foundry Acid. He said: ‘You can make music with this software!’
Of course back then I didn’t realize it, but this was a life changing moment for me. I used this music program for many many years – 17 years to be exact. It became the tool that enabled me to express myself creatively and to do what I love the most: making beats.
Both my setup and my creative process have changed a bit since then, but basically it’s the same procedure as back in the day. It usually starts with a few chords, a nice rhythmic loop and some drum bits. The rest happens by itself.
I remember visiting the Fat Beats store in New York City in 2004. I was a massive fan. To finally enter the holy halls was a huge deal for me. I was soaking up the atmosphere dreaming about a future as a producer. Who would have thought that I would ever put out a record with these guys! I feel honored to be part of the Bakers Dozen series and its outstanding list of producers.”
