Check out and share our Issa Alien 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 Issa Alien , a 21 year old music producer from Jamaica, who makes Dancehall, EDM, Pop, RnB and Trap music.

I got into producing when I was around 16 years old, I made my first EDM beat on my tablet using Fruity Loops. I was strongly influence by trap music from artiste's like Future, Migos, Zaytoven, Gucci Mane, Rich The Kid and a few others, which led me to the realization that music is part of my soul.

I always try to make my tunes give people that "Extra Terrestrial" feeling, if that makes sense. I want the sound of it to bring out an side of you that you didn't know you have inside, it doesn't even have to sound modern, as long as people get that feeling that's an accomplishment for me and I know I'm doing the right thing.


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


Well my biggest project was "Give You" by Nick Stonestreet it was even getting lots of attention in the UK Urban Pop music at one point very supportive project and I didn't even promote it to the fullest extent I just let it talk for itself. I love trap music but pop music is like my soft side that's where all my emotions go.


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


Well I have a ton of projects to release this year as well as many songs with artiste's that's about to hit main stream, including my own songs that I'm working on as well RnB, Pop and Trap. I accept all clients what ever genre they're in I would love to be apart of it.
