Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?
This is Staticphree. I am a producer that records so artists can see the potential of my tracks for possible projects they are working on. I also mix and master tracks for artists as well.
I am a graduate of LAFS with a degree in music production ready to work with all artists that are working towards their goals.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
I come from the gutter so my music reflects the diversity of the past and present environments I lived in and through. I have been involved with music since I was in grade school.
I have been in countless singing groups and church choirs so I am very musically inclined and it is ingrained in my DNA.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
I was at Roscoe’s chicken and waffles and did an awards show at the Palladium a tribute to R&B legends of the era. While eating I hear Tiny Zeus Lister say Hey Big Serg my name at the time yawl tore that thing up he was famous already and I was young like 19 or 20 at the time and he said he saw our performance and loved it.
He was with Cuba Gooding Jr that night hanging out and they sat with us and had dinner with our squad that night I knew I could do it for a living and make an impression that will last.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
I have been on my own since my teens. I grew up in a very abusive and disloyal family. My biggest challenge is to not mistrust people behind the evil situations I have been put in by those close to me and left for dead.
It is very hard not to superimpose your distrust onto all that come around when those closest to you have done you super dirty. I am sure there are plenty who can relate it’s a club no one wants to be a part of but if they are they know they are true survivors.
Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?
- E-40 because his flow and sentence structure is second to none and he could teach me a lot about songwriting from the heart from an urban aspect better.
- Choppa has 808 secrets I could use to make better sounding and harder-hitting inside the frequency 808’s.
- Chris Angle is a mixing legend. Could you imagine an hour with him watching his work? What the average producer could learn about mixing and mastering?
