Producers Spotlight: Tower of Confidence / Clean Kutt


Check out this week's PRODUCERS SPOTLIGHT on rising beatmaker / rapper TOWER OF CONFIDENCE (better known as the rapper Clean Kutt).  In this interview, he talks about his beats, his sound, the artists he's worked with in the past, what makes him tick and more!  Read all about what he has to say in this in depth one on one interview.  Shout out to South East Hip Hop Magazine for setting up the interview!

The Beat Yard:  How long have you been making beats? 
Tower of Confidence:  Well started making beats when I was 20 so 14 years!!!

The Beat Yard:  Why do you call yourself Tower of Confidence when making beats? 
Tower of Confidence:  Brian Kocher is the the salesman with integrity and respect. Over the years Brian has been rejected numerous times on the sales floor. Brush your shoulders off "Jay Z" and have fun. Requires a lot of confidence. Therefore my my confidence is that of a tower.   

The Beat Yard:  How would you describe yourself as a beat maker? 
Tower of Confidence:  Super motivated, determined to make the hottest beat every time. Focused to bring the fans in!!!!! 

The Beat Yard:  Who have you made beats for, other than yourself? 
Tower of Confidence:  Jody Jo, Big Train, Hazel, Robinlynne Mabin both of my brothers, Drew Covington, my sister, my daughter, Luis Luchega, Jullian, Joe Fox, Barbarian, Slang D, Cato, James panther and leased a lot of beats. Now I am only selling them.    

The Beat Yard: Who are some artists that have brought out the best in your production?
Tower of Confidence:  Jody Jo, Big Train, Hazel, Robinlynne Mabin both of my brothers, my sister, my daughter, Joe Fox, Barbarian, Slang D and Cato.

The Beat Yard: Do you prefer to be hands on with an artist or do you prefer to just send a beat to the artist and have them do their thing on it?
Tower of Confidence:  I now treat all my services as a business, what ever works better for the artist, I'm game!!!!

The Beat Yard:  What has been one of your worst experiences as a producer and what did you learn from it or how did you bounce back?
Tower of Confidence:  I would have to say, working with my friend at the time the producer TJ Williams also known as the Duke. I was in the state of learning the roles as a producer. He started showing me the ropes, as I progressed he became very jealous and tried to stir me away, to just focus on rapping. (laughs) We are no longer friends, as a result I exceeded as a hot universal producer.  

The Beat Yard: What do you use to make your beats? 
Tower of Confidence:  I would have to say I started out making beats on the famous fruity loops, as time goes on I am more accustomed to reason and logic. 

The Beat Yard: Who are some of your favorite producers?
Tower of Confidence:  Lex luger and Jonny Julliano

The Beat Yard: Is there anything you would like to plug?  Any shout outs?
Tower of Confidence:  Shout out to my Wife for working so hard, Shout out to Robinlynne for keeping the Vibes Live, and shout out to my fans for peeping me out every now and then.

The Beat Yard would like to shout out South East Hip Hop Magazine for introducing us to this talented beatmaker!

Producers Spotlight: Stupid Genius

Check out our Producers Spotlight on South Coast Records in-house producer/ composer STUPID GENIUS!  Read all about what Stupid Genius has to say in this in depth one on one interview as he discusses his favorite producers, gives us a first hand look into his thought process as a composer and more!

The Beat Yard:  How'd you get the name "Stupid Genius"?
Stupid Genius:  It's me.  It's a condition of being "all the way live" when you embody the duality of life's opposites.  Initially the name was created for my group with life long music collaborator and friend, Hank Tate, but I ran with the name with his blessing once I began to solidify a career in production.  To be a stupid genius, you think and live outside the box in a manner that is confusing to most people, so 'different' appears to them as strange or stupid, but when they hear and see the end result, they see genius. 

The Beat Yard:  How long have you been making beats?
Stupid Genius:  18 years 

The Beat Yard:  What inspired you to want to make beats?
Stupid Genius:   Music is my magic and my medicine.  The amount of times that music touches the nerves and soul of listeners throughout their lifetime is immeasurable.  Whether it creates a celebration or provides a light of inspiration a to dark place, it directly touches the heart.  No matter what purpose your hands serve, they are guided by the heart. If I can be a part of this legacy on a grand scale and give back even a fraction of the gifts I've received, I'll be aight.  And this is beyond making beats.  Making beats is a fun craft which I love, but dope beats are just an unfinished part of the equation.  The producer must assemble all components musical, lyrical, and technological to create a sum greater than all parts that is precisely crafted to touch the heart.

The Beat Yard:  Who are some of your favorite producers?
Stupid Genius:   Timbaland, Dr. Dre, Dungeon Family, Diplo, RZA, Sly & Robbie & Stephen Marley to name a few .

The Beat Yard:  What do you use to produce your beats?
Stupid Genius: Logic 

The Beat Yard:  What is your process for making beats?  What do you start with, the idea or do you tinker around with a sound until something comes out or what?
Stupid Genius:  Every scenario imaginable depending on why and how I sat down in the lab to begin with.  I may have 5+ typical methods, but no one set-in-stone approach. 

The Beat Yard:  Do you like to be hands on with an artist when making the song, or do you prefer just to send a beat to them and let them do their thing?
Stupid Genius: Hands-on the vast majority of the time, but there are a couple artists like Jay Fresko who truly can deliver most of what I need from a satellite location if needed.  That can only be done with a seasoned recording artist with great studio efficiency.  I do so much shit in post-production, and I do prefer that buffer of bringing my vision forth before we start evaluating the song. 

The Beat Yard:  What types of artists do you vibe with the most when it comes to rhyming over your beats?
Stupid Genius:   Ones that hold up their end of the bargain with quality control to match and surpass the production, which makes me work more diligent to create a polished product.   

The Beat Yard:  What other genres of music do you produce?
Stupid Genius:   Reggae, EDM, Trap, R&B, pop, Latin, & Indian. 

The Beat Yard:  What's one of the worst experiences you've faced as a producer and how did you bounce back or learn from it?
Stupid Genius:   Overall, the glorified superstar X-factor make-believe air that too many industry-related people will blow up your ass with no hesitation set me back.  The 'recovery' is in progress and just comes with years of learning and growing and sticking to basic principles of karma and paying-it-forward.  

The Beat Yard:  I know you don't want to give all your tricks and power moves away to the competition, but do you have any advice or tricks you would like to share with other producers?
Stupid Genius:   Yeah.  Don't let industry skew your objectives. Make music because you love to, need to, and need to share with the world.  Once your mind crosses into a lottery mentality (winning BIG by doing nothing), you find it easy to break universal laws of logic, business, and how to treat your neighbor.  No one is that cool. 

The Beat Yard:  Is there anything else you would like to mention? 
Stupid Genius:   Yeah.  No matter if you have 10 jobs, don't ever forget who you are during the day.  If the beat drives your night, don't keep it a secret during the day. If people are going to criticize you and say "he thinks he can be P. Diddy" they may not truly be your friends and may just be talking shit because when they go home, their talents may be non-existent so they compulsively insult you when they secretly envy you.
