Domino - Music Producer
Posted: 08/31/2006


What do you you:
Music Producer

Where do you work:
Hieroglyphics, Oakland, California

When did you realize your interest in music:
I got into hip-hop and I was rapping. When I was rapping I had a partner that was making the beats. I found out about sampling and got interested.

Why music:
I guess to sum it up it’s an expression of an individual’s mind and soul at that moment in time. You can get such a strong feel from music, it’s timeless.

How would you advise others:
You can’t be afraid of rejection. You have to get out there to have people hear your stuff. Also use rejection as motivation. Rejection is one person’s opinion. Probably 99.9% of the people that are successful out there have a story of rejection. Initial rejection, I mean. Use what people say as motivation, don’t get discouraged.
