My Interview With DoubleCin Magazine February 29, 2012 Choppin It Up with Jamon “Truebeatz” Turner Posted by datnatikid
Double Cin Magazine: First off, introduce yourself to everyone who hasn’t heard of you… Truebeatz: Yo Yo, I’m an up and coming Music Producer and Beatmaker, Truebeatz.
What part of town are you in? Walnut Hills
So, how long have you been producing/making beats? I first started out making beats on a Sony Playstation in 2004, so about 8 years now.
What made you decide that producing is the way of life for you? I was always into music and I always wanted to be a dope producer,and i felt like I can make tight ass beats. lol.
What Cincinnati artists have you worked with, would like to work with? I produced a track for Hazeboy and I sent my homie Gonja a beat, but I would like to work withShowtime, Fresh, and my homie from the other side of Walnut Hills, Gansta Mooch.
How would you best describe your style of beats? Dirty south, Trapp, Bangerz.
Can you describe the process that you take to make a beat, from conception to the final file? As of right now, I make beats using Fruity Loops 10, and I punch on a MPD26, with a M-Audio Keyboard. And I use VST’s, the same ones that Lex Lugar use. The process might take up to a hr or two because mixing is my weakness right now, so I’m still learning how to mix.
How do you come up with the beats? What inspires you? I listen to major artists like Young Jeezy, T.I. , and Piles and I like the beats that they rap to. So I try to make beats similar to what they rap on. I try not to bite any producer styles, but Lex Lugar and Zaytoven is one of the producers who inspires me.
What do you have plan for the future? I planned to sell beats to major artists, get like a placement somewhere nahmean? And hopefully if GOD is willing, I would like to own my own studio in the Nati or Atl.
Anything you would like to add or shout out? Yeah, I support all local artists around Cincy and I hope we can come together and put our city on the map I feel like there is a lot of talent here in Cincinnati and we need to stick together… and I would like to give a shout out to errybody who doing their thing… errybody in my hood Walnut Hills… my homie Corey “Bluntman” you on yo way bra bra… Benny Haze, my big homie Heightz, Fresh, Gonja, and Hazeboy.
