IX: Who is Riggadale?
He’s stuck making weird beats all day because everything else seems like a waste of time now.
IX: When did you start making music?
I started making beats for a rap group I was part of around 2005, I loved sampling violins.
IX: Did you have any musical background before getting into producing?
None whatsoever, But I feel the lack of training gives me an original production style but definitely slows me down a bit in the studio.
IX: What artists have had an influence on your music?
I grew up loving underground hip hop producers like Hi-tek, Stoupe, and Pete Rock, but now my main influences are the the producer friends I work with or around, Hunter Siegel, Memorecks and Zeds Dead.
IX: What are the type of people that you imagine listen to your music?
They wear ballcaps, long tshirts and tight pants.
IX: What is the big plan for the next year?
Not leaving the Studio for more than a few minutes at a time. Been writing songs with some talented singers recently, so until they’re all done, while everyone else is enjoying the new summer, I’ll be inside working on my studio tan.
