Beats by AMR was gracious enough to take time to answer some questions for us to get to know the man behind the music. The spotlight is on Beats by AMR.
Who is Beats by AMR the Producer?
Beats By AMR is a producer hailing from London, England but was born in Colombia.
He is heavily influenced by producers such as Ryan Leslie, Scott Storch and Timbaland. AMR does not limit his production to one genre, instead he chooses to mix and bind genres in order to craft his radio ready mixed productions.
How did you get into producing?
Got into producing through hearing Dr Dre and Scott Storch making productions for various artists. I was inspired to make my own productions and build my own empire.
What production software do you use and why?
Logic Pro X because I find it the best software out in the market. It is an industry standard.
What’s your creative process for creating beats?
I usually start with the drums or melody and build it into a 16 bar loop with variations in between the 8 bars. Then expand the loop into a musical arrangement.
What was your favorite project to work on?
It has to be my newest single that is coming out with South Korean Artist "Chaser" because it is my first time working internationally and entering the asian market.
Which artist would you love to collab with and why?
I would love to collab with the Internet Money team - due to the fact that I believe we can cook up and kill some beats. After that the internet money team can pitch it to whatever artist. I am not really chasing clout with trying to chase placements with big artists, I wanna make my own artists grow.
What’s next for Beats by AMR?
More international production credits, more fire beats and building up my brand as a producer to be listened to.
