What's up Leafers? Welcome to the latest edition of On the Rise where we interview upcoming hip hop talent. Today's guest is music producer, S-BEATS Music. S-BEATS is straight out of Gujarat, India. S-BEATS is a self-taught multi genre producer who can make music in many different styles. We can definitely see him producing tracks for some of the world's biggest artists if he keeps dropping consistently. We discovered his motion on social media so we had to tap in. Check out the interview below.
Westleaf Staff: What's up, S-BEATS? Thanks for joining us! Let's get right to it! When did you start making music?
S-BEATS: I started making music in 2016.
Westleaf Staff: That's dope! You've come a long way in a short period of time. What city do you represent?
S-BEATS: I was born in Kerala, India and when I was 8 I moved to Gujarat, Surat, India where I reside now.
Westleaf Staff: Shout out to India! So how did you create your stage name?
S-BEATS: I used the first letter of my name 'S' from Stephin, and in 2017 I used to make many beats so I added beats to it and made my stage name 'S-BEATS MUSIC'.
Westleaf Staff: Nice. That's super cool. So how did your early life shape your interest in music?
S-BEATS: I first wanted to become a dancer after seeing many successful dancers on Television. I got into music because I wanted to make my own mashups. So I started to do some research on how to make a song. I learned how to make music on youtube with different softwares and apps. At that time I didn't have a laptop or good phone, only phone I had was an old model Samsung I think. So I started to use apps from the Google play store to make music. I must have used every software and daws from the play store to find my sound. Finally I found an app called 'Caustic 3', and that was my turning point. I started to make beats on caustic 3 and learned a lot. After some months I learned the basics of music production like, how to make a beat, or how a song is made. By the time I learned everything I could about music, my passion for dance was gone. In India 70% of the parents don't allow their children to follow their passion, they just want their children do be in the rat race. Instead of joining the rat race, I decided i'll learn how to make music and become a music producer. In 2018 I dropped out of college and my parents yelled at me a lot saying, you will not become a music producer and they said you can't live your life doing music, you'll suffer. but I just keep ignored that and focused on making music and learning new things. In 2018 I met Tara Britt through instagram, she's from US, and in one year we made a whole EP ' street success'. Now its 2022, and consistently earn $1000 every month from my music and I will only make more as time goes on.
Westleaf Staff: Thats's dope to hear that you progressed so much! So who is your biggest Musical influence?
S-BEATS: Murda Beatz, Marsmello, Travis Scott, Migos etc.
Westleaf Staff: Those are definitely some legends! Next question! What's been the defining moment in your music career thus far?
S-BEATS: I learned a lot of music production without anyone's help and made many contacts around the world.
Westleaf Staff: Wow! That's dope. Congrats on all of your success!
What makes you a unique artist?
S-BEATS: I can make music of any genre like hiphop, rap, trap, edm, arabic trap etc, and I'm still improving and learning all genres.
Westleaf Staff: I love your versatility! So what does art mean to you?
S-BEATS: Art can make people laugh, cry, and even make them angry etc. The art of music allows the audience to think or express their feelings.
Westleaf Staff: True! Art is music. Music is art! Where do you see your music career going over the next few years?
S-BEATS: I think I can achieve much more. My goal is to have a grammy award as a producer.
Westleaf Staff: Dope! I see that grammy happening for you! I wish you much success! Before we go, describe music in three words.
S-BEATS: Happiness, Sadness, Anger.
