I was able to chat with producer Jeremy Rosinger who is dropping his first project and we were able to talk influences, styles and beats. Shouts to Reviving Real for the bringing Jeremy and this dope project our way , head to their site here (http://www.revivingreal.com/).

Read up and listen to the album “10:57” below

 

Lets start off with the basic producer question, how do you yourself start a beat? Do you have a groove in your head already and you start messing around on your pad or does it come from some type of inspiration or experience?:

“I’d love to meet a producer who has one answer to this question. Sometimes I’ll start with just a snare I like and build from there. Sometimes I hear a sample that inspires me. My best music, however, comes from times I hear a new song or album that resonates with me. Nothing compares to hearing new music– it makes me want to create my own.”

I know you said you just graduated college 2 weeks ago and are ready to drop an album… lets talk about the concept of “10:57” and the how it came about

“The time, 10:57, is a reference to the exact length of the project. It is short and to the point with constant changes. But going deeper, time in general is a strange concept, it’s something we created to keep order. I want to stop watching the clock, though. I want to stop letting life pass by without appreciating it, which is not an easy task. While listening to my project, for a brief moment, I hope people stop watching the clock.. making the title and artwork a bit ironic.”

I noticed in “take the stairs” there are a ton of real sounds incorporated in the track. Did you record those sounds like the coin and the door squeaking open and closed?

“Yes! I’m glad you noticed that. “take the stairs” came about during a project for one of my music technology courses. We were supposed to record a song with a certain amount of instruments, but I’m more into sampling. So I went around with a pair of microphones and recorded a bunch of miscellaneous sounds. Everything in the beat aside from the chords you hear were recorded by myself and sampled into the song. The snare is a handful of almonds being tossed into a red solo cup.”

Can you tell us some of your biggest influences in music? If I were to ask who you bump on your studio headphones on a regular basis who would it be?

“Terrace Martin and Isaiah Rashad are two of my biggest influences right now. Terrace because of his versatility; I read about him producing Herbie Hancock and YG’s albums at the same time. He’s also a dope sax player, which was the instrument I studied at school. Isaiah has a vibe that cannot be touched; if there’s one artist I could sit down with right now, it’d be him.”

Clockwork//Butter might be my favorite record on this album, do you let a beat like this develop over a couple of days/weeks or do you sit down and don’t get up until its done?

“clockwork // butter” wasn’t originally intended to be one song, it was actually two completely separate beats for a while. One day I tried transitioning one into the other and it just worked. I don’t think any of my tracks are ever ‘finished,’ but the second half of this track was made, for the most part, in one sitting.”

If you could work with any musician in the industry who would it be?

“As I mentioned earlier, I’d love to work with Isaiah Rashad. At this point in my career though, I’d be honored if any artist wanted to sit down with me.”

Whats in store for the future once this album drops? Any performances/collabs happening soon?

“For now I want to focus on the present. But I can assure you that there is more to come!”
