Hey everyone, My Looperman name is Asterikz but my producing name is Soulraq. I also produce under my real name Carlos, too.
I am a 23 year old producer from Bristol
I produce a majority of the sub-genres in UK 'Dance/Electronica' category, mostly Grime and Garage under the name Carlos, and produce more Soul, Jazz and Funk-inspired music under the pseudonym 'Soulraq'
If you wanna hear some music of mine, check me out on http://www.soundcloud.com/soulraq !
Keyboard/Piano, I also sing.
Logic Pro X, learning Ableton at the moment and hopefully Pro Tools in the future.
Genelec 8030B monitors, a small Focusrite interface, Novation Ultranova, Korg Microkorg with a Mac Pro powering it all.
A lot of Electronic sounds that I find on SoundCloud through platforms such as Soulection, Nest HQ and Too Lush.
Drake - Take Care
Maniac - New Age Grime
Merky ACE - Blue Battlefield
Frank Ocean - Channel Orange
Frank Ocean - Nostalgia, Ultra
Very melodic. I like to make melodic music, however un-melodic the genre is. I favour swung drums and melodies, keeping in line with my Latin roots. This is also very much inspired by my Jazz and Soul upbringing.
I just work most days.
