Will grew up in South Africa, a country dominated by music when it comes to entertainment. Growing up, he was quite exposed to African dance music. However, it was American Rap music that I found fascinating. Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Eminem, Tupac, and Dr. Dre were all extremely popular at the time.
Nevertheless, it was his cousins, with whom he occasionally visited, he heard that music – he was the only child who listened to it.
Dr. Dre’s Gangsta Rap melodies particularly blew him away, and he finally understood why people can’t live without music. In hearing Dr. The Dre’s 2001 and 2Pac’s All Eyez On Me records, he had already decided he wanted to become a musician. In 2008, he started doing beats and mixing.
For him, music is pure science. Pop music is a waste of time if rock music dominates the industry, so he cannot make it in the studio if rock music prevails. His role is to produce music, not create it.
He doesn’t take it personally. He creates the most necessary music for his time and where he lives, so he has decided it is what he has to do for the foreseeable future. There have been many good EDM giants to inspire Will- Tomorrow Ever Come, Avicii, Seeb, Alan Walker, Felix Jaehn, Martin Jensen, etc. Hismix style is more rhythmic to the record than usual, so he added thicker drums.
