The rising Ifran, Morocco singer/songwriter is looking forward to upping his game in music in the coming years. The music industry is a very high and competitive place to be, 7venmind is awear and has decided to put in all the works it takes for him to pave his way to the top of the line. 

I had sometime to have a quick interview with 7venmind and you would be amazed by what his ambition and and goals are. I now I indulge you to go on and read about this brilliant artist below.

Hi 7venmind, thanks for the privilege of this interview.

Let’s start off by introducing yourself, you know the basics like name, age, where you’re from. As much or little as you’re comfortable sharing.

I’m Haytam Nazih aka 7venmind a rapper based out of Morroco in City Ifran. I’ve got introduced to music since 2011 and it’s been like a drug to me since then. and I started making my own music at the age of 16 years up to date.

What’s the best advice you ever received concerning music?

i‘ve received a lot of good advices over the years and I think the best advice given to me is to be unique and be creative and I find a lot of new artists who write and produce their music in a way where they replicate it over and over. I think artists should keep experimenting and evolving in music.

What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now?

I was a little reserved listening to people’s opinion. If I would go back I’d push myself more and set a system, believe in myself and make connections with people that are just as passionate as muse.

What is still your biggest challenge?

My biggest challenge now is as I mentioned I want to build my own studio and buy equipments but I’m still a student in college and I’m trying to balance between music and studying.

What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry?

When things get tough in the industry what keeps me going is when I see other artists and fans and friends let me know how they like my work and that they believe in me and vibe to my music that keeps me up and brighten my mood and it pushes me to even work harder.

If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?

There are  many amazing artists that I would love to perform with or open up for but to be honest I am huge fan of Post Malone his shows are crazy.


Talk me through your creative process.

So my creative process can differ a lot based on how I’m feeling what I’m thinking of, sometimes I have a specific idea or a subject that I want to talk about in the song.

How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations?

Productivity and scheduling isn’t a big issue for me because I love music and I really enjoy putting my time and efforts in it but when time get a bit overwhelming I tend to take a pause and reorganize my thoughts to get incouraged again.

What are you focusing your time on now?

Right now I’m focusing my time on developing my studio equipment and building my own carrier and I am releasing a new EP.

How do you currently feel about the state of “Your genre” in general?

Currently I feel about the state of my music genre it’s evolving and I’m being more creative I’ve had a shift where I’m blending trap and R&B.

Los Angeles Producer ArjayOnTheBeat Is Pushing the Perimeters of the Music Industry

To stand out in music, especially a genre like Hip Hop, an artist has to have a presence not only the presence but commanding energy to them that makes you invest in their artistry, which they present for us to buy into. That separates an artist who you only give one listen to and who you start to keep up with. ArjayOnTheBeat brings that confident swagger to his approach that makes you want to stay connected, as he has been unfailing when connecting with his audience and executing vibrant and unique records from a career standpoint.

Arjayonthebeat discussed with us and answered our uncommon 11 Questions. Check it out below.

 

HONK: Let’s start by introducing ourselves. You know the basics, like name, age, and where you’re from, as much or little as you’re comfortable sharing.

ArjayOnTheBeat: Artist Name: Arjayonthebeat /Arjayonthebeat3x

Legal Name: Robert Dickson Jr 

Hometown: Los Angeles, California 

 

HONK: What’s the best advice you ever received concerning music?

ArjayOnTheBeat: The best advice I’ve ever received concerning music was about mixing. I was honored to have had a one-on-one session with a Grammy-awarded engineer, Leslie Brathwaite, who engineered Pharrell’s “Happy,” which headlined Despicable Me 2. He listened to my beats and told me, “everything was great, but one thing, your mixing.” He then said when it comes to mixing your beats, nothing should be panned to the center but vocals”. In other words, every sound in your beat should be panned between the left and right, never down the middle. 

The best advice of my life…

 

HONK: What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now?

ArjayOnTheBeat: One thing I would have done differently is take more of the presented opportunities rather than rejecting them due to being overly cautious.

 

HONK: What is still your biggest challenge?

ArjayOnTheBeat: My biggest challenge is finding an artist with the potential/ talent to take them to the top and team up. Until then, the search continues. Most artists don’t take it as seriously as I do. I instead get plaques/awards with one artist repeatedly than try to get one plaque out of multiple artists… if that makes sense.

 

HONK: What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry?

ArjayOnTheBeat: My daughters (Indiyah & Xia) and my family are the ones I need to be successful. My goal is to leave generational wealth /money behind for them. 

 

HONK: If you could open a show for any artist, who would it be?

ArjayOnTheBeat: Lil Uzi Vert, Chris Brown, or DJ Khaled

 

HONK: Could you talk me through your creative process?

ArjayOnTheBeat: When it comes to my productions, I never force them. I only make beats when I feel like it, so I don’t burn out my creative juices. 

If I’m not working, I typically listen to various genres to get ideas on enhancing my sound daily. Every genre has something you can learn from…

 

HONK: How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations?

ArjayOnTheBeat: I always try to keep the customer/ clients happy, mistakes can occur, so I’ll always offer something in exchange for the mishap to reach a positive conclusion.

 

HONK: What are you focusing your time on now?

ArjayOnTheBeat: I’m focusing my time on executive producing more projects rather than singles & building my artist (once they’ve been found).

 

HONK: How do you currently feel about the state of “Your genre” in general?

ArjayOnTheBeat: We need more substance in the hip-hop community and a different topic to rap about rather than hoes, guns, apps & negativity. I feel it’s time to switch it up, or else we won’t get as successful as other genres like folk rock & country music.
