we have a chat with Sun Yehoshua about producing and pewdiepie buying his music.
So how did you get started in music?
I was always around people who made music. One day I made a loop of someone else's song and said I made the beat to see if they'd believe me. They did and the feedback felt good, so it pushed me to start making my own beats. Of course I had to tell them it wasn't mine, lol.
how long have you been doing it now? What is your set up?
Going to be 4 years this summer I think.
M-Audio BX5's, a midi keyboard, and a laptop
What album and artist has inspired you the most and why?
Artist? Id have to say Charles Hamilton. No albums in particular, but his earlier work definitely inspired me to start making music because his lyrics/production really hit home with me
What is your favourite track you have produced and why?
It changes day by day lol. But probably Auditory Hallucination just based off the samples I managed to throw in there along with the overall sound. Nothing else I made sounds like it, even though the mix is ass.
So you are from Baltimore, so what was it like growing up there?
I don't really go out much because I don't like people for the most part lol so I can't really say i'm a product of growing up here. But it's what you'd hear from everyone else, shooting, killings.. Usual stuff. Most people here like trap music, which is cool, but imo watered down, so I don't associate myself much.
How do you go about producing a track?
I go sample searching around on youtube until I find something I like. Starting with the sample, I work in the drums afterwards.
Any tips for producers and where do you hope to take your music in the future?
Sure. A question I'm always asked by producers is how to get fans. Only pieces of advice I can give is to continue making music, be CONSISTENT, don't be afraid to reach out to other people to collab.. And last but not least. KEEP YOUR EGO TO YOURSELF.
As far as the future goes, music is really my hobby, so no big time goals. Nevertheless, I think it'd be dope to get my beats widespread throughout the world. People knowing is what makes me happy.
So pewdiepie, one the biggest youtubers bought your music? How did that happened? Pretty amazing.
I was at work and got an email saying my album was bought from someone named Felix. I didn't think anything of it until I looked on twitter and saw the "pewdiepie has followed you!" notification. I swore it was fake. Put 1 and 1 together and realized it was him who bought it. Craziest day of 2016
How do you think Pewdiepie came across your music? Also what youtube video was your song featured in?
Yeah I have no clue how he come across it. Didn't even bother asking I just wanted to thank him for doing so lol. He's pretty dope. He changed the title of the video to something else but I'm sure the link is floating around in the picture comments somewhere.
Thanks man any last words?
