Record producer Weku Did That talks about Trap Rock in the music industry
With music and film production credits behind some of the biggest brands, BET, Nickelodeon, Sprite, Vans, Sony Epic, Roc Nation, singer-songwriter Mickey Shiloh, and more
The masked record producer and musician widely known as Weku Did That has been mentioned by many as a master of many trades. With music and film production credits behind some of the biggest brands, BET, Nickelodeon, Sprite, Vans, Sony Epic, Roc Nation, multi-platinum singer-songwriter Mickey Shiloh, and more, he’s been definitely made a name. He and his works have been featured in some of the music industry’s most trusted news sources, Revolt TV, Hip-Hop Weekly, Kazi Magazine, and more. What attracted attention to her brand was her iconic full face mask.
Weku Did That has always had a mystique for him, with for the first time a half-mask in 2016 on the very popular Instagram platform, he presented his music production while hiding his identity. Although he has worked with many independent and big brands, few have seen his face. This has added incredible value to his brand as a recognized music producer and cinematographer. Not many people can tap into multiple taps of talent and pour out high quality from both sides, but Weku Did That has managed to do it in music production and cinematography. In addition to his other achievements, he is considered the leader of a new wave of music production that he invented Trap Rock.
We’ve heard the fusion of rock and hip-hop music before when we’ve listened to collaborations like Run DMC and Aerosmith and it shows us it’s taken to the next level. Fuse melodic guitar riffs and basslines with punchy drum patterns. Known for his alternate style of R&B production, I guess this should be expected. We first heard this style of his production used by an alternative / punk artist known as Bully Barbé, who is both R&B singer Rene Bonét, in which Weku Did That produced his Punk / Rock album titled “Bully Barbé”.
Taking it a step further, it does something that we don’t see a lot of producers doing, which is releasing instrumental albums on all of the major streaming platforms. It’s very common to see producers releasing beat tapes through SoundCloud, but releasing them on major streaming platforms is rare. In doing so, he consolidates his position as an essential producer for this style of production in this new musical wave. Making instrumental projects that can be streamed online for artists to freestyle during studio sessions or parties creates an atmosphere normally hard to find, and with the ability to rent the instrumentals they listen to through their website. Coupled with streaming, this creates income for the producer in a way that other producers have not been able to tap into without the artist actually singing or rapping on the record.
It also appears that Weku Did That prides itself on being exclusive. Although it is in great demand as one of the fastest growing record producers, it retains its value by working directly with only a few artists. This is extremely important to note because as a record producer the goal is normally to have as many artists as possible on your beats, and although Weku has released two different instrumental albums, “The Case for R&B” and ” Trap Rock “, this can easily be considered a contribution to the artist in the independent and mainstream music industry.
His goal is extremely clear in that he favors quality over quantity while remaining particularly creative at the same time. Weku Did That definitely sets a standard for business and is committed to a path of continued growth and long-standing success. Follow Weku Did That through the information below.
