What’s good Cenobite? For those who don’t know tell us where you’re from & what motivated you to become a producer?
Hi, everything is good! I’m from Athens Greece and I started as a bassist when I was 13 years old. In 2000 I had my first pc so I started to mess with my first music programs and I realized that this is what I wanted to do in my life!
Describe your style. What do you want artist to hear when they listen to your beats?
My style is EDM, trap and hip hop. Now for the artists the only thing that I want when they hear my beats is to feel the same energy that I feel cause every single part of my music is a small piece of my soul.
Being from Athens Greece. Is there a difference between hip hop there and hip hop in the U.S?
Oh yeah, it’s totally different. The scene is really small but we have good artists and I worked with the best there. I think that if you don’t come to the U.S. you can’t realize exactly what real hip hop is.
What projects are you currently working on?
I’m working on my new album and a lot of stuff with 30 and over league. I almost finished the album with Crisis
and I’m preparing EP’s with Nico the Beast, Blessa Al mighty and J.O.T.S. I just started working with Got Mason and I have a lot of really good artists that we are discussing EP’s and full Albums.
What is your definition of Grynd?
I feel that to Grynd is to keep striving for what you want and never stop until you reach that goal. As for the Grynd Report, it’s a great way to find everything around hip hop and the four elements. It’s also a great opportunity for artists to get their voice heard!
Every producer has a couple of people in the game they looked up to coming up. Who are these people for you and why?
I have influences from a lot of different kinds of music and I think that this is what a producer needs to do cause you can find ideas and interesting things from everywhere. I’m not gonna give you names of the artists but I can tell you that I listen to EDM, hip hop, trap, idm, metal, punk rock etc. A lot of different kinds of music that I’ve grown up listening to and made me what I am today as a person and as an artist.
What other ventures would you like to get into besides producing?
I wouldn’t want to do anything else. I just want to be better and better at producing all the time. Every day I learn something new and I want continue this trip till the end!
