Jack Kane Interview
First off, I want to ask what inspired you to begin producing at such a young age, and how you got so good so quickly? For real, your beats are incredible.
throughout my life, I would have various interests n go hard as at em at different times. So it was the same thing with music, just 8th grade me messing around for days straight trying to make interesting beats. I’ve also played piano for many years so that helps
‘Geekin’ remains my favorite song from you, it definitely has some of your harder rappings. I definitely think songs like that as well as ‘Evergreen’ from your SUGARKANE EP represent my favorite style from you. Is there more of that to come?
there’s definitely more of that style to come. I like to switch up my sound and not be known as one dimensional, so I’ll always make more hard songs like those. Need the balance
Speaking of ‘Geekin’, I really dig the video that just dropped for it. Do you have any more visuals on the way?
yup, more visuals on the way. I have one ready for Backpack that I’m going to drop soon, it’s better than Geekin. I’m trying to shoot a video a week though because visuals are super important to me as an artist. I work closely with my editor Harry who’s fye with the videos. Geekin was the first full video he ever edited, we only going up from here
Two of the tracks on your latest project weren’t produced by you. Do you find going over other people’s beats to be a different process to self-production?
yeah, I would say the process differs when it’s my beat versus someone else’s. When it’s my beat, I’ll have a vision for the record from the first melody I make, and I’ll go from there with the lyrics. For someone else’s beat, it’s more me catching a vibe and thinking “how can I make this a hit?”
Who are you influenced by? Both from a rapping and production perspective.
dr drew, Pharrell, speaker knockers, and old playboy Carti is some of my sonic inspirations. Whether they’re making a really high-quality unique beat or spitting on the song, those 4 would always leave me with new ideas for my own music
