[MAGAZINE] MEET THE PRODUCERS: A$AP P ON THE BOARDS

  • Firstly, briefly introduce yourself.
    My name is A$AP P on the Boards. I was born in New York but have been back and forth between the city and Miami almost forever. As far as my style goes, it’s however I’m feeling at that moment – I wish I had a single word for it but there could be days I’m dark, happy, or just based and I’m letting my mind pour the thoughts out into the Universe.

    What would you say are the most popular beats you’ve created?
    All of them. But ‘Coke and White Bitches’, ‘Jay Reed’, ‘Bath Salt’; all of those still get love today. People like all [A$AP] Mob records a lot. ‘Swordfish’ [by Da$h] is a low-key honourable mention.

    What is your favourite song you’ve worked on and why?
    Honestly that’s a tough question ‘cause any record I did when I was actually in the studio and built it from scratch, I appreciate. Just ‘cause with how dreamcast shit is nowadays, it’s rare for a producer or even other musicians to be in the studio together as opposed to the whole email-behind-screen [set-up] that happens now.

    Do you think that production software becoming more accessible to just anyone is a good or bad thing for music?
    It’s a double-edged sword in my opinion. Yeah, we might have new technology allowing us to do things more easily and with less fuss than before, but it’s becoming so dreamcast that anybody can pick it up and with a few YouTube videos, they lit! But at the end of the day the fact that anybody could pick it up is a great thing ‘cause it promotes creative fruition.

    What influences you as a producer?
    Everything. From the music I grew up listening to, down to the music my mother used to play in the house on Sundays when she’d be cleaning. Whatever goes on in my mind on that day is what comes out in mp3 format.
