From the Depth of my Soul

(There's going to be a lot of grammatical errors, if you're not sure about what i mean, feel free to ask)

Man do i love music. I remember when i first heard 'I got the Power' by 'Snap!' when i was a kid, i was going nuts. I grew up listening to Dance Music and House in my childhood. As i grew older, i started to explore different genre, i really enjoyed 'The Prodigy' 'The Fat of the Land' album when it came out. I liked some rap also, most of the time you had this little part in Dance music when some underground rappers was rapping a verse or two. The first MC that i enjoyed enough to buy his album was Will Smith, then Coolio and Dubmatique. I liked the positivity in rap at the time and the energy that came out of it. I went around some other genre also, some 'Rob Zombie, 'Marylin Manson', 'Korn' & 'Limp Bizkit'. When i heard 'Nookie' i was around 14, the world had stop, that track was just insane. Then my oldest friend shared some Tupac with me, he had the album 'Still Down (Remember Me)'. I was really fascinated by the fact that Tupac was dead but still alive through his music. And more i listened to Tupac, more i understood how deep Rap truly was. Then it was over, I bought a bunch of albums, i liked DMX, Cypress Hill, Method Man & Redman etc.. At the same time i was learning english so it was like new stuff everytime i listened to them cause i was starting to decipher everything they was saying, i still discover some new stuff today in some track i've been listening for years. Then Rap wasn't enough, i had to learn about Hip-Hop as a culture, know about it's roots, know about it's founding fathers and more.

I grew up in a broken home, my parents divorced when i was 1 years old, my single mother then raised me while being on Welfare for 12 years. After i went to live for three years with my father and it ended badly so at 16 i was kinda on my own and at 18 i was on my own, on Welfare just like i've learn as i kid. Being broke, not having much money and having big dreams was something that was all over the Hip-Hop Culture. I really enjoyed seing and hearing some MC's that grew up poor get rich. It was like a fuck you to the system all the time, i really respect everybody that make something constructive out of nothing. Then i started to be curious about something else; Metal! As a kid, my mother didn't want me to listen to metal, and i didn't care cause i wasn't interested as a young kid. But as a young men, i thought that metal was just awesome, it was hard to the core like no other. And a lot of Metal Artist comes from broken home too, so that part also connected with me. After exploring Metal for a while, i made a 360 and started to fall in love with Drum N'Bass. That freakin' music was crazy, how could these guys put up beats like that!? Just awesome!!

I'm almost 30, and now i listen to many genre, when it connects, it connects and that's it. But nothing connects with me like music. Ok, some movies and video games do, but music always been special. I was like 10 years old and i was already recording tapes, puting toguether my favorite tracks and making compilation. I made around one hundred of them until this day. At 19, me and some friend rented a place and made a studio out of it, it lasted for around a year and a half. I started to make my own track in this Studio, i was dreaming of becoming a great beatmaker, so now was the time to start. I bought my first computer in 2008 for beatmaking purposes. Now i got around two hundreds tracks in my library, i'm still underground, and i might be until i die, but that's how it is, you make music because you love music in the first place, ambitions comes out in second. 200 tracks for me ain't much, it's cool but it's not what i'm aiming for, i'm aiming for 1000 +. And i don't want to just put hundreds of tracks out of nowhere, i want to share my passion of music with others, so i focus on putting quality material. There is so much people out there that i would like to work with. And music is huge, i still have so much to learn. So here's my newest beat, i called it; From the Depth of my Soul.

  1. FANTASTIC track Steve. I think it's really deep, cool and mystical. It also makes me think of spirituality and outer space. LOL

  4. Another great one, I don't know how you keep coming out with these tracks so quick, I know it takes a lot of time for each one. Keep up the great work, I love training to your music and creating to it.

    1. Thanks again Freddie! You know it depends on how i feel, sometimes i have a hard time putting a track up and some other time i just feel super inspired and then i can create more. It depends also on the sounds i'm using, some sounds are harder to work with. I can select a sound in which i see something in it and start to compose melodies with it, but then it can become hard because it might not end up sounding like the vision i had in the first place and then that might taker longuer. But these past couple of days i felt happy and inspired so that's why sometimes i'm more productive. Like i said in a conversation we had on Skype, i stick to a minimum of 2 tracks a month. And i don't have a maximum so if they keep coming, let them be express. It's like you and your videos, you are a very productive person you know, keep up the good work too!
