We are sharing here our recent conversation with a talented and experienced Music producer Terry Landers known by the name ImaShiine.
Twist Online : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
ImaShiine : I can say I started making my music on a professional level back in 2009 when I started to sell my beats to local artists around Detroit Michigan where I was born.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you as an artist growing up?
ImaShiine : My inspirations come from a couple musicians most notability Drumma Boy, Shawty Redd, Key Wane, T.I. and Young Jeezy, just to name a few.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release?
ImaShiine : My most recent release was an instrumental album titled “The Motivation” I’ve been releasing projects since 2012 where I’ll put like 10 beats out for anyone to rap or sing on, and I’ve gotten a lot of support from that because you can get 10 professionally sounding beats for like 9.99 on Apple Music, and Google Play.
Twist Online : You have worked with a number of artists and band. Is there some artist you would love to work with?
ImaShiine : My favorite artist currently is Drake, I would love to make some records with him because of the versatility he and I both share. I can go from making a Trap beat to a really smooth R&B beat and I think we could make a lot of hits.
Twist Online : What is your favorite music genre?
ImaShiine : My favorite Music Genre is R&B I listen to a lot of it, I like it because of the melodies and how simplistic the drums usually are but as the song progresses it gets more and more advanced but still maintains a very simple sound.
Twist Online : Tell us about marketplace you founded for music producers? What kind of response you got?
ImaShiine : yeah, the business I started is called “ProSoundz” where we design high quality software and sounds for producers to use, at a very affordable amount. One thing that I and a lot of producers can agree on is that, When you first start off making beats its kinda hard to find good sounds for cheap, and that’s what I wanted to bring to the table, So I started off selling sounds on my main website, but after a while I had built up a nice catalog of products and wanted to make a whole website dedicated to that one thing instead of having it on my music page, so I started that in 2013, and a lot of people that ive connected with over the years supported me, and we have maintained a nice amount of customers and sales through the years.
Twist Online : What are your future goals as a music producer?
ImaShiine :My future goals are to one day have own record label with artists that I produce for and to make great music and inspire others.
Twist Online : Are you working on any other new project? when it will be released?
ImaShiine : I have stated on twitter that I’ll be releasing another instrumental mixtape and an album in the near future, the mixtape of which will be free to download for all the artists that support me and the album will be available on Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon music.
Twist Online : How much active you are on social media ? What’s the best way to follow you?
ImaShiine : I’m really active I’m on twitter about everyday responding to people, chatting with folks that have similar interests as me, and also riposting funny stuff I see over the web, you can follow me @ImaShiine, and also my business at @ProSoundz
