Let’s look into how some music gets created the masterminds behind songs, I’m talking about music Producers. these are creatives who assists an artist with their recording project, bringing their vision to fruition and guiding their sound along the way.
For those who are not familiar with your game, please introduce yourself to the Hype Family.
I go by the name SiphoMjita. I’m a DJ, Producer and an Engineer at MlaziTrap Playboy Entertainment
You are very dope in what you are doing, what makes you unique from other music Producers?
I’d say what makes my music unique is my musical background, I got exposed to multiple genres through my siblings who all happen to have different tastes so that widened my spectrum in music.
In your opinion, what separates a good producer from a great producer?
I think a good producer is someone who is capable of making a good song/single but a great producer is someone who can cares about the product holistically,great producers care about moulding great artists as well as albums.
explain a situation where you had to work with a team of other producers or musicians to complete a project. What was the situation? What were your specific tasks for that project? What steps did you take to ensure the project was completed smoothly with the other team members? What were the end results, in terms of the quality of the final product and the feedback from the team and the client?
The usual workflow is, we first discuss it, Brainstorm the concepts and possible roll outs. That helps me out in knowing what type of sound I am going for and who I will collaborate with to achieve the sound, it could even be a producer collab I’m open to that. My task on Umlazi Online was making sure the production is clean and diverse. I produced the mixtape alongside Blaqson who also a great producer/artist under our label MlaziTrap Playboy Ent is. I’m heavily influenced by Mike Dean, so I used him as a point of reference in terms of mixing. Zooh sequenced the project, I think he’s good at it.
What are you currently working on and what can we expect from you in 2024 as a producer?
I’m currently engineering a project by label mate, lowkey_esto’s next project “uthando oluntofontofo” I landed a couple production credits on there as well as on Zooh’s “Isaka lami” dropping 08 March 2024 I’m also preparing my next single which is quite different from what I usually drop which is trap music, this one falls on the more soulful side of things.
