here’s the full track list in order of interviews
This is the first ever Head Nods Interview and I’m starting with friend and producer D.O.S
D.O.S. what does it stand for and how did you get that name?
Director of Sound, and I picked it because I thought it was original, and nobody had used it yet. I was wrong Haha. Other people didn’t use Director of Sound but the acronym. I was high off cough medicine at the time too. For medical purpose only haha.
When did you start making beats?
Ehh, it’s been a long time, I’d say around 8th grade in middle school. I even made an album with a crew I used to hang out with.
How did you get your equipment at such a young age? How did you start learning?
Oh I didn’t have any expensive equipment, all I had was a program on my dinosaur computer. I learned by teaching myself how to work on the program (fruity loops). At the time when I was learning, I didn’t have Internet. So youtube and all other sites that people go to now, I didn’t use them. Everything from production and mixing I taught myself. There was a lot of trial and error but I’m still making beats ti’ll this day. Didn’t need a tutor.
Who or what inspires you?
I’m pretty much inspired by a lot of things, even art. One of my big influences is my dad, he’s a DJ. I remember when he would DJ’s at parties, he would get the crowd pumped through his whole set. I always wanted to do that when I was younger. That’s when I started thinking about making beats. I even fiddle with the DJ equipment and I see if I can mix as good as him.
So your dad must be your big supporter?
Yeah he supports my music. He always said he was proud of what I do, and yeah he knows he’s my biggest influence. So I just keep doing what I do.
What are you working on right now?
I’m currently working on two projects. I’m collaborating with Tactix aka The Tactician. I’m also working with K. They’re all in the camp. CPC! So yeah his stuff with surprise people. It’ll blow their mind. One will be depressing and one will be soulful. That’s how much I’ll say about the projects. It’ll be crazy.
Who would you like to collaborate with?
Probably Blu, J Live, Elzhi, Flying Lotus, (Maybe do a Flying Lotus vs D.O.S project.) Mos Def, Talib Kweli, MF DOOM, just to name a few. I’d work with artists in diverse genres too. Oh and Sean Price is another person I’d work with too.
What do you think about the current industry?
Ehh, I’m tolerable about the new current music, but I like Odd Future Wolf Gang. Tyler the Creator. Some people might be like “ah it’s ignorant” or “it’s weird” I actually like that kinda stuff haha. I love weird stuff. Plus he blew up fast at such a young age. That’s really inspiring.
Well, to each his own. So, Where do you see yourself in 3 years?
Hoping to drive and live on my own house. Hoping to actually get a job or do this music too. I can’t predict the future but i can control what i do in the present.
So, got any interesting fans?
Haha, I hope so, My fans are probably on their computers on iTunes listening to my beats over and over again I’m hoping to get inspired fans. That’s what almost every artist wants. Inspired Fans. Taking the industry down!
Anything you want the Head Nods Reader to know about yourself?
I like cookies, oh and CPC shoutout to my Fam.
Keep a lookout for K’s new mixtape (green tape) coming out this or next week. I’ll be producing his next project.
