UTW-Who are you?
Hi-Rock-The name is Francis also known as Hi-Rock a.k.a The Student of the Boom-Bap!
UTW-What is your passion?
Hi-Rock-Music is my passion…started joining dance competitions when I was young, which then made me intrigued on how to mix music, because the music we were dancing to was pre-mixed and mashed, I taught myself how to do that. YouTube wasn’t around for tutorials then so the things i learned was pretty basic. I knew I needed to have the proper education. I started my internship as a recording engineer at Bunker 8 Digital Labs…learned a lot from that experience. The transition to becoming a Beat Maker is just natural…and all the experience I gained will help me in my future endeavors.
UTW-What’s your biggest accomplishment to date?
Hi-Rock-Having your music played in countries like Singapore…who would’ve thought that with music I can connect with them despite the cultural differences. The Weekly Beat Sessions has helped me connect with fellow beatsmiths from the diff parts of the world and has helped me to always improve not each month or year..but each week I have to come up with something hot! Shouts to my WBS Family. The biggest accomplishment to date though is probably helping my man Jaff complete his first album.
UTW-Perseverance is key in proving to yourself AND any detractors out there. We tell em’ “You thought wrong” what else would you like to say to any doubters right now?
Hi-Rock-To all the doubters and haters, I welcome you..without the doubters and the haters I wouldn’t be working as hard. It keeps me going as a person and at improving on my craft. So Thank You! it’s all Love
UTW-Thanks for everything, where can people find your work and get in contact with you?
Hi-Rock-Its my pleasure…thanks for the support ‘UTHGHTWRNG’
