Music Producer and DJ Hybrid Chats With TMI About His New Single, New Twitch Series, & More!!!
You started your music career at a young age, what inspired you to try music?
My old friend Danny made a rap song my junior year of high school, and this sparked interest for me. I was simply just curious as to how songs were made and put together. The very first music thing I did was record and “mix” my friend in Audacity. After getting comfortable recording and mixing vocals and instrumentals, I began producing. From then on, I began writing my own songs, producing and recording them.
What is your favorite thing to do in your career? And why? – recording, music video shoots, performing, etc.)
By far my favorite thing to do in my career is making good songs and seeing people react. This goes hand-in-hand with just jamming with artists that I like. I also love mixing songs.
Your new single, “30 Gems” is coming out soon!! Can you tell us how this song came about and the meaning of the song?
30 Gems came together when my friend Arnav came to my studio and played me a really basic beat. I liked it a lot and ended up adding a lot to it. We then wrote the song, and he performed the vocals. The meaning of the song is about having money and doing things with it.
You also are currently doing a Twitch live series!! How do you prepare for a performance for this series??
First, I set up my cameras and lighting so everything looks clear. Then I set up all of my audio connections so that the DJ software integrates seamlessly with the streaming software. Once all of the tech is setup, I begin DJing live. For the first 20 – 30 minutes, I usually have a plan of what I’m going to play. After that, I just wing it…haha. I also set-up multiple colored lights and moving backgrounds on screens.
What can your supporters expect from these live performances?
They can expect to see me playing my songs or songs I like with cool and fun things happening in the background. I’ll also be interacting and taking requests later on.
What social media platform do you use most to stay connected to your fans?
I mainly use Instagram. I have all of the others, but I’m active most on instagram. You can find all of my platforms on www.linktr.ee/prod_hybrid.
What’s an average day for you look like?
My average day-to-day life is very unique…haha. My #1 priority is my health, mind and body, so I make sure to eat twice a day, stay clean and workout every day. The rest of my day is spent either networking, producing music, and coming up with new ways to build my brand. By far, most of my time goes into learning and researching. This could be music theory, business skills, people skills, DJ Techniques, etc. The list goes on and on.
If your life was a movie, what would be the title and who would you want to play you?
If my life was a movie it would probably be called “Hybrid vs. Logan”. The movie would still be in the beginning stages though. I would want someone funny and relaxed to play me. Maybe Ian Somerhalder or Tom Ellis.
What’s your favorite song at the moment?
My favorite song at the moment is Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris. I just like the idea and production. My favorite song changes probably every couple hours…haha.
What 5 words describe you the best?
Calm, Ambitious, Resourceful, Straight-Forward and Humorous
Do you have any other cool talents other than DJing?
I’m pretty good at day trading. I also sometimes coach people in life just for fun or to help.
Any last things you’d like to tell your supporters?
Stay calm and collected, and do what fulfills you.
