So we are here having a talk with 6ard an upcoming producer, so where are you from 6ard?
Hello I am 6ard/Dorman, I am 21 years old and I live in the Southern U.S
So how did you get into producing?
I got into producing a little over a year ago when one of my good friends showed me how to remix a Bones song, it all started from there. When I first began I quite literally had no idea what I was doing. I wanted to to be self taught when it came to producing, so I have never taken to the internet or YouTube for any tutorials (my tracks when I started were out of time and key and had many other problems that I would slowly learn how to fix) thus began my slow climb to where I am today.
How do you go about making a song what is your process?
When I build a track now a days Ill most always go with synth note progression or a guitar sample from one of my many talented friends. From there Ill usually judge the length of the song and begin adding effects to the synth/sample. Once I have that sounding the way i want ill move onto a little percussion so I can judge the build of the track so Ill lay out some snares for example. Usually by that point I have an idea laid out of what I want to execute with the rest of the track.
That's dope, do you play any instruments at all?
My musical background is not as extensive as some people that I know, but i can proficiently play the trumpet (LOL) and read music because of this, as well as minor knowledge in piano.
Okay, so what do you use to produce your beats and what artists have you worked with?
I use fl studio as my daw (multiple versions). My producing creds are: foreign forest, Mokka(Underrated Producer), Ballad of the Broken, wetheaxis/myntwave, CarlosTheSpice, yung $lack, Steele '11(my cousin), Shabba Rhys, and a few more!
Wetheaxis tracks that you produced 2002 and 2008 are pretty dope how did you end up with working with wetheaxis and the produce of creating those tracks?
2008 and 2002 are some songs that I have done with wetheaxis or @TyloMay on twitter. WeTheAxis/myntwave is a group of artist from our area that come together to make dope music. You check out the website here http://www.myntwave.com/ . The goal with these tracks is to bring back some 2000's nostalgia with the vocal word play from BalladofTheBroken, while have and equal vintage sounding guitar accompanied with a hard hitting drum line. These tracks are the ones Im most proud of because of how they came out sounding like some of the musical styles from the 2000's.
