4Q4A3139
Name/Producer Name:
JBmBeatz

Where you from:
Houston, Texas

How long have you been producing:
I’ve been producing for about ten years now.

How or what made you start making beats:
I began creating beats after watching some of my friends. I would give them my feedback on what sounds or instruments could enhance their music. They suggested that I start making my own beats. One day they took a lunch break and I was in the studio alone. I jumped on the equipment and the rest is history.

What equipment did you start with:
The equipment that sparked my production endeavors was the M-Audio Oxygen 8 midi controller and Propellerhead Reason 2.0 software. I was advised early on to start off small and if I stayed the course with the production, then upgrade the equipment if or when necessary.

What you rocking now:
Currently I’m using multiple pieces of gear. The majority of my production comes from the Akai MPC 3000 and MPC Renaissance. I also use the Roland SP 404 and Native Instrument’s Maschine. Within my creative workflow, I have found various ways to maximize multiple pieces of gear in order to create the type of sound or vibe that I’m looking to achieve.

How did you find out about BEATROOT:
I discovered Beatroot through the net. More specifically on Youtube, via the Beatroot Grand Championship 2012 Producer’s profile Jer-Z-Ric.

How did you go into/approach battling in BEATROOT:
To be honest, it was a 50/50 split decision as to whether or not I should battle or not. It was a spontaneous decision to enter the BeatRoot. As for the goods on my approach in the BeatRoot Qualifying Round, the basic version can be found on my website. I’ll release the goods to my complex battling process after the BeatRoot Grand Championships this summer. lol

Present/Future projects we should check out:
Yes at moment, I’m wrapping up my production for Hip Hop artist Signif’s album titled “Friction”. Projected to be released this summer.

Website and contact:
Artist and listeners can check me out at: www.jbmbeatz.com and if you are into twitter you can find me @jbmbeatz.

Thanks to the Beat Root staff for this interview. In closing to all the producers reading this interview don’t give up and believe in your music.

Peace and Blessing- JBm
