Spayce Munky

Rapper, Studio Engineer and Music Producer.



Tell us about you and how you would you describe your "art"?
Rapper, Studio Engineer and Music Producer.

Where are you based?
Gaborone, Botswana

How long have you been making music and how did you get started?
About 7 years, was introduced to fruityloops 3.5 at the age of 12 by an older cousin.

Do you come from an artistic background?
My dad is a jazz musician that plays guitar, saxophone and keyboard. My mom likes to write short stories, and my older sister is into oil painting.

What inspires you? What are your influences (Who or What)?
I'm inspired by anything and everything constantly happening around, you never know what you may come across that can spark the next best idea.

What is your most proud accomplishment so far?
Completing my Diploma course in Sound Engineering at SAE Institute Thailand, and coming home to get busy.

What are your tools for creating?
I'd been using FLStudio for a few years, but now I use Ableton Live 8 with a novation launchpad as a control surface. I'm also familiar with other DAW software such as Apple Logic, Digidesign Pro-Tools and Steinberg Cubase.

What sets you apart from the others?
I'd say that the means by which I produce my music sets me apart as well as my production preferences. I like to have a "dirty" sound.

Where are you trying to end up? (5 year plan?)
In 5 years a lot can be done, most of my goals are short term, but will help in the long run. I like to take it one step at a time.

What are your favorite things in life so far?
My favorite thing in life at the moment is learning. Not school and books maybe, but we can learn from everything.

If we gave you P1M what would you do with it?
I'd probably try to build a recording studio which meets international standards, and also use it to promote local talent at the same time. A lot of productivity can be done with that money.

Any advice for people trying to do what you do?
Keep working, stay focused.

Where can people buy/get a hold of your work?
