These days we music listeners tend to flow more with the beats and sometimes we don’t really get the message the artist is passing through his/her lyrics. You play a song with a bouncy beat at a party and everyone would have started dancing even before the artist’s voice comes in.
So basically we can say producers are major factors in good music. In a quest to know more about the life of producers we had a chat with young talented producer EFFZ( Tag: Effzmadethis).
Effz is a producer from North London whose real name is Ephraim. Effz is 18 years of age , he is half Ghanaian half Nigerian. Effz journey to the world of production started when he wanted to explore producing, then he discovered it was more than him just exploring production he felt it was a passion.
He also stated that as a musician knowing how to program the instruments on a software is so much interesting than doing it live. When asked if he adds singing and song writing to his best making he said “ Normally I only make beats but previously when I first started producing I tried to put my own vocals of me having song writing stuffs on my beats but now I am just focusing on producing”.
Before a song is released it goes through stages like : recording, mix and mastering , music production etc. When asked which of these he does he said “Music production and mixing & Mastering go hand in hand , like you need one and you need the other when you are making beats , I mix and master my own stuffs but I do the mastering through a website. But obviously I am not an audio engineer so I don’t mix and master people’s vocals for them”.
Effz made it known that his best experience as a producer is hearing an artist on his beat and that comes with that accomplishment feeling. He also stated that the annoying experience he has had as a producer is when he is in the studio recording with an artist and the artist keeps on making mistakes and they have to keep on recording one part over and over again.
As a young producer Effz sure has dreams and he hopes to one day work with the likes of Mr Eazi, Kojo funds , Kida Kudz , Naira Marley , Tion Wayne amongst others. While telling about his source of inspiration Effz made it known that he draws major inspiration from YouTube and from other producers like : ATG music, Jay5, OY productions, Aj Productions, Jampz, Timbaland , Hitsound producer and Jaybrown beatz.
