In an interview with ArtistConnect, Spaceman talks about his beginnings as a producer, what it is like to be part of the record collective Internet Money, and his plans for the future.
How did you start producing music?
Spaceman: When I was a sophomore in high school 5 years ago, I saw TM88's Genius Deconstructed on XO TOUR Llif3. That was the first time I saw FL Studio. And right after that, I got FL and started messing around with it. I had never played an instrument, and I didn't know anything about music theory. So it took me a while to even get decent, but when I finally got an artist on one of my beats, I was so hyped.
You are part of Internet Money Records. How did it come about?
Spaceman: About three years ago, I joined a producer group chat and met Rio Leyva, and we started working. About a year later, he got signed to Internet Money. And a couple months later, he asked me if I wanted to join, and I said yes.
Which of your productions are you particularly proud of?
Spaceman: I'm proud of my Tecca songs because he was one of the first big artists I worked with. The two I have on Tecca's "Virgo World" are my loops, and the two I have on "We Love You Tecca 2" are my drums. I never wanted to be only known as a loop maker, so the two on "We Love You Tecca 2" just prove to me I can be an all-around producer.
Thank you for the interview, Spaceman!
