Erwin Garcia (A.K.A ebeatz)
From: Kauai, Hi
Music has always been in my life. The Ukulele was my first instrument that i really was into bad then. In elementary school, around 3rd grade, i was amused by one of my classmates playing that 4 stringed beauty. Playing old school tunes, immediately got me hooked. So from then on I knew music was going to be part of my life.
I never was much of a performer but i really love to play.
I played with friends such as Paul Cline representing U.K.E at this small bar called Tree’s, i also did some party gigs and open-mics here and there. Im a happy song writer and producer. Although i didn’t go to school for music, i still was reading random music producing books and never stopped learning on my own.
I started working with Fruity Loops, now I’m learning Reason and when i can Pro Tools (with my boy Paul’s help). The type of music i produce is vass but it kind of depends. If I’m working with a guitar, its usually reggae, rock, or even folky stuff, but with FL studio or reason, it would be more like Hiphop, Rnb, or even dubstep and EDM.
My influences are people and bands like:
Timbaland, Gorillaz, Bob Marley, Beatles, Dr. Dre, Pepper, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, Kanye West, Jimi Hendrix, N.E.R.D., Outkast, Ratatat, The Weeknd, Weezer, Fugees, Incubus, Fat Jon, Chrome Sparks, Bruno Mars, Ben Harper, Ub40, Greenday, SOJA, Katchafire, Elvis...
I always like the quote from Bob Marley, “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain!”.
