I recently interviewed another participant in “The Remix Project”. His name is Hopeton.

Nick

How did remix change your life?

Hopeton

Remix took an unguided, yet, intelligent kid and gave me a path.

Nick

What do you think you would be doing if you never joined remix?

Hopeton

I wouldn’t be doing anything spectacular or anything that somebody could appreciate. I would still be making my beats, but without remix my music would not be what it is becoming. I wouldn’t have this head start for school in architecture at Humber College.

Nick

Remix helped you with that?

Hopeton

It gave me a financial boost.

Nick

What do you mean by that?

Hopeton

A scholarship.

Nick

That’s awesome.

When did you start trying to make music?

Hopeton

I started making beats at 13 on fruity loops (computer beat making program). I was just screwing around on the computer and came up with some good stuff.

Nick

How old are you now?

Hopeton

Nineteen. Since then I’ve been making original beats regularly in my basement, which is now nicknamed the cave.

Nick

What are your long-term goals?

Hopeton

To produce an artist who becomes famous. Perfect examples of this success are Jermaine Dupris, Timberland and Dr. Dre.

I’m trying to be a super producer on those terms. I’m going to be developing these artists from my local community (Lawrence Heights) aka Jungle.

Nick

Are these people that came to you?

Hopeton

These are people that I’ve always known which makes it all the more special. We all grew up together and already have a form of personal relationship, which is very useful and very much needed in the creative world of music.

Nick

How can people hear your stuff?

Hopeton
