Firstly, briefly introduce yourself.
I’m Andre Robertson from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My production style is a blend of RnB and classic hip hop. I love mixing different genres too, I’ll blend some country tunes with RnB and add hip hop drums to it. I’m always looking to push the limits.
What would you say are the most popular beats you’ve created?
My popular beats would be PARTYNEXTDOOR’s ‘Don’t Know How’, Eric Bellinger’s ‘Lay Up’, Ye Ali’s ‘TrapHouse Jodeci’, and PARTYNEXTDOOR’s ‘Don’t Run’.
How did you begin making music? Was it a particular influence or circumstance?
I began making music on the Playstation back in 2001. My grandma bought me this video game called MTV Music Generator. After school, I would go straight home and turn the game on ASAP! I would practice my craft everyday. Starting early was definitely a plus for me.
What draws you to creating instrumentals?
Seeing how people react to my creations keeps me motivated. Every year the sound gets better. I love putting out quality music for fans to take in and enjoy.
