(Pronounced alekse/ a-lek-se)
Just randomly started making music one day, or trying to make!
My friend always did it, and he is a genius at that and we both shared a love for hip hop, so i thought I would appreciate all music more and try my hand at putting stuff together!
My friend taguht me a few things in FL Studio, and from then on I learnt the rest on my own simply from making more and more beats.
I now use FL Studio 9, with a keyboard plugged in , mostly for my slices and chops.
I sample in prettty much everyone of my songs, mainly because this is how I learnt to make beats and for the love of real Hip-Hop, which all started out on a sample.... and simply I just love flipping the sample as crazily as possible.
My biggest influences on the way I piece my beats together are from Madlib and MF DOOM, who have the most unique and arb styles of sampling, something which I aspire to. They are my 2 favourite producers along with my other favourites JustBlaze, Kanye West, Dr. Dre, Pharell, Marco Polo, Ski Beatz, DJ Clark Kent, Timbaland, Envoy (who is really underground, I found him on Youtube, check him out!!!), Esta (also youtube), Alchemist, Guts, Jake One, Black Milk, Analogic and way too many more.
Thanks for checking out my page and taking a listen. Hope you enjoyed.
