Check out and share our GimmieDaKeyz Interview. This interview is part of our new Producer & Engineer Q&A Series. In this interview series we feature exciting producers, mixing and mastering engineers from all walks of life. As always: Share & Support!


Please introduce yourself real quick. Tell our audience about your background and how you go into doing what you´re doing right now.


I'm GimmieDaKeyz, a 24 year old music producer from Baltimore, Maryland. A little about me, I've been passionate about music since I was in elementary school when I picked up my first instrument, which was the trumpet. From there I taught myself how to play the piano and my love for music grew. After graduating high school, I became surrounded with less people who shared the same passion for music as I have for so many years. Life began to put music on the backburner and I thought I would never be able to share my gift ever again. It wasn't until last year that I met an old friend who was starting to gain some status in the R&B Community, that I purchased my first DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and stared at my screen wondering what to do. Then soon after I made my first beat, I felt my love for music flourish once more. I took up the name GimmieDaKeyz and made it a point to showcase my love for piano and melodies with each beat or track that I create. Currently, I am working on projects with up and coming artists Hotboy G and Bankroll Jigga, hailing from Mobile, Alabama. Also I am working on an upcoming EP with Lamarr Anthony, a local Baltimore artist. Every day, I am working towards perfecting my craft and meeting new people.


Please tell our audience what projects have you been working on in the last years?


As I said before, I'm working on projects with three artists, Hotboy G, Bankroll Jigga, and Lamarr Anthony. I have a new beat tape coming out as well called The Chronicles 2.


What are you currently working on? Do you accept clients and and what kind of projects/work fits your profile?


This is one of the beats that will be featured in my new beat tape The Chronicles 2:

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?


One thing I would like to pass on to newer producers is to listen to your music. Study its sound and what makes it unique to you. Remember that you are your own worst critic and don't be afraid to showcase what you've created.

Take a break, walk away from the laptop, put down your headphones and find another activity. Music will always be there but sometimes it takes the right mindset to get that next melody or drum.
