Rubenxocean: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength


Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I’m a young music producer and a business student. I come up with every single melody that you hear in my music & I market artists that I think will become successful.

Why do you do what you do?

I have to, I wake up every morning and a certain feeling that I get tells me to obsess over Music, Fashion & Art. I love it

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I knew this is what I wanted to do about 2 weeks ago, I was talking to my mom on the phone and she told me that she really thinks that I can be very successful in the music industry.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

The toughest thing that I’ve had to overcome was getting tired in the studio. There would be nights where im in the studio at 4AM – 6AM on a school night, So I had to train myself to perform at my fullest in the studio until the project is finished. Now when I’m in the studio with the team getting tired isn’t even a thing.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I’m constantly Re inspired by songs, paintings, fashion, film & nature. I can get musical inspiration from a painting I’ve seen in art museum.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I  wish that I learned how to play piano when I worked at Ray Perries Music store 2 years ago!

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

We actually just shot a video over the weekend for a new song that i produced called " Turn Me Up " By J kord Feauturing @SireOfficial which will be releasing in a couple weeks, also sometime before Christmas we will be releasing the Electronic Dance version of our debut single " How Fat Is That ASS " which is produced by me!

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

The advice that I would give to other people is to please do what you love, if you have a real passion for something then just do it. It’s 2014 and the world is absolutely crazy and interesting at the same time. The opportunities are endless for our generation, we have nothing to loose and everything to gain. If you want to be an artist. Be an artist, If you want to be a model, be a model, if you want to be a lawyer. Be a Lawyer.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Well a lot of people ask me how I made the beat for #HowFatIsThatASS &.. I made it on my laptop on a program called  FL Studio 10 on a beautifully sunny Friday afternoon at J kords house next to the pool when we were hanging with our bro Scotty, The most prominent instruments I used are a Piano, a bell, Orchestra hits and of course my signature Ocean808 bass  … &Follow my bros On Twitter @RubenxOcean @YoungMusicGod @ScottyDoKarate @SireOfficial & @NiceGuyNicolas
