De Notes Interview On iStandardProducers

DeNotes-DewittMoorePicRESIZE DeWitt Moore, of De Notes Productions (formerly of The Sicknotes),  was interviewed by the web site iStandardProducers. An excerpt of the interview is below.

You were heavily involved with Eminem and D12 for a while. How was your experience working with those guys?

It was a good learning experience. I got a chance to see how things worked on the inside of a camp that was running the game and on top of the world. I got a chance to travel the country with those guys and see the whole creative process, not to mention being a part of it too.  I had a lot of fun times!

When you get to the studio, what is your creative process like when you making some heat?

I come to the studio, maybe grab something to eat then kick it with my team. I have a VERY strong production squad. And sometimes we’ll sit back and just kick it about current music that’s out now, then we’ll pull out the crates and put the needle to the vinyl. Once the room is filled with that vibe we just jam out. I have a team of very talented musicians so we just get it in.
