We recently got a chance to catch up with Artist-producer KT to talk Music, his forthcoming project ‘Aquarium’ and more… Check out the interview below. Enjoy!
Who is KT?
KT is an Artist/Producer from Orange County, CA.
Is Music your first love?
Music is my first love, ever since I was a baby dancing!
How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard your music?
Well, I think “Sounds So Digital” says it all! The sounds are the new wave: really spacey and underwater like. (Laughs) Kinda like an “Aquarium.” There’s a lot to the sounds at the end of the day. So when you listen, let your imagination take flight.
Who are some of your musical influences?
Michael Jackson, Gato Barbieri, Sade and Pharrell, just to name a few.
When writing or producing music, what inspires you or where do you gain your inspiration?
I gain my inspiration from my life’s experience. My imagination is vast, so I like to be limitless when it comes to new ideas in production, writing, or engineering.
Who are some artists you’ve been blessed to work with?
Layzie Bone, Glasses Malone (Shoutout to him, he got a number one record right now called “Thuggin” ft. Kendrick Lamar), Waka Flocka and Too Short.
Who are some artists you would like to work with?
Jay-Z, Drake and Lil Wayne.
Have you ever doubted yourself or your career?
Outside of music, is there anything else you’re interested in?
Investing and fishing is pretty chill. I love spending time with my son “Akai,” you only have so much time when they are young. I named him after the infamous beat machine “Akai Mpc.”
If we were to go through your iPod (or any music player), who are some artists that we would find on your playlist?
A lot of music. I go on Datpiff and download mixtapes and albums every week, so I mainly play Drake, Kid Ink, Sade, and the Jazz masters compilation, Paul Hardcastle.
Upcoming events or project?
I’m working on my upcoming solo debut as an artist titled “Aquarium” and I am also doing some shows with Juliann Alexander. Follow him @therealjuliann. Also, there’s a lot of other artists that want me to produce and write for their albums and EP’s.
Where can your fans find you and/or your music?
Instagram | Twitter | Soundcloud | Website
What can your fans expect from KT in 2015?
A few hit records and a booming business called“Sounds So Digital LLC.” We are opening up our first studio in the next few weeks in Orange County.
What is the best advice you’ve been given?
“It’s not what you know, It’s what you can prove”
My new single “1987” is coming soon! Video shot by @Jayeb_ent. Follow him on twitter.
Yes… To God, my family, my management Chance Talent, my company Sounds So Digital LLC and all of the artists that have done business with me and believed in my talent. Thank you! The next time you turn on your radio you will hear “Sounds So Digital”
