We had the good fortune of connecting with Terell Horton and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Terell, how do you think about risk?
Risk taking is tricky in my opinion. For me, a lot of the risks I’ve taken have come from the fact that I didn’t have much of a choice otherwise. Funny enough, if I hadn’t taken the risks I’ve taken, I would be in a much worse place no doubt. That being said, you have to be wise about the risks you take. Sometimes the results of the risk can be more damning than whatever the opposite is. Careful consideration is key.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a music producer who primarily works within the hip hop & rap spectrum. I do enjoy creating a variety of other genres; EDM, jazz/funk inspired pieces, old school sample chopping/boom bap & more. What I feel sets my sound apart is my desire to toy with the listeners ear & expectations, blending ambient elements with hard hitting percussion & bass. I also have a habit of adjusting the cadence of my percussion, so as to give a interesting feel with the overall beat. Suddenly, an electronic creation sounds a bit more human, more soulful. It’s nothing new by any means but the way I’ve done it has able to open doors and gain the approval amongst many peers & mentors for years. It was far from easy, I’ve been almost restless in my pursuit of beatmaking. I’ve rarely taken time off of it for long in the past 12 years. It’s shown me a lot about how dedication to something can truly refine whatever you do. I want the world to know that I intend to build something grand in the music realm, that I love this art form and I look forward to having the opportunity to contribute to its legacy.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
You know, honestly I haven’t had much time to be fully outside these past few years so I can’t name too many specifics but I can assure you that it would be a week full of dispensary trips, comfort food and hitting the beach. Probably some sightseeing too, it’d be a new experience for everyone pretty much

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Shout out to the friends that inspired me to make beats, the friends that helped me get software, my family who’s been supporting my artistic endeavors the whole time, I would be nothing without these people.
