005INST: Let the world know who you are and where you're from? 

REZ: My name is Randy "Rez TheSilverback" Nizer. 
I'm an 18 year old Mc/beat maker from Manchester, New Hampshire and 
I just love the hip hop culture! P.S., I say beat maker since I don't PRODUCE other genres. 
I'm strictly hip hop as of now. 

INST: Who have you worked with & how long have been beat making or producing?  

REZ: I have worked with a bunch of people; Artist like 7oddz from the Chi, Resolute & J-Merk, Coal, 
Taboo & Grim from NY's Dead Rabbits. Currently working on building with Godilla & Burke The Jurke. 
And believe it or not I have only been making beats for about a year. Maybe a little less.  

INST: How did you get started beatmaking-producing?  

REZ: I have always loved hip hop from every aspect, DJing, Rapping, and Producing. 
But I mainly started because I have always had a visions Of my unique sound but 
being able to keep it Boom Bap & Gritty. Another reason was because 
I never had enough money to buy beats. So I went after it myself.  

INST: Of all of the artists that you've worked with, do you have a favorite 
artist that you work well with?   
REZ: Like I said before, I have only been doing this for about a year. 
So to say a favorite artist as of right now, I cant say. 
But everyone I work with slay tracks, so they are all my favorite! 004

INST: What equipment and or software are you using?


REZ: Fruity Loops, vinyl & a turntable. That's it! 

INST: Do you use or prefer sampling over playing live instruments? 

REZ: I love to sample and sample anything I get my hands on, 
but I would love to use live instruments or work with someone who does! 

INST: Who influenced your style? 

REZ: Just my peers and love for the music. I always hear beats I really 
dig and never know who the producer is. 
Names don't really impress me. Its what kind of product you are putting out. 
But Alchemist is definitely (1) of my top influences 
along with the obvious Premier. 
Domingo is also another legend I look up to and have the honor of building 
with him! 

INST: Do you ever see yourself quitting or retiring from beat making?  

REZ: Only when my hands fall off or if I go deaf. Or both. 

INST: Do you feel that there a difference between being a 
producer and being a beat maker? 

REZ: Yes, there is a very big difference. For instance, 
Domingo is a PRODUCER. 
He can go from Hip Hop to R&B to probably Folk if he really wanted 
to [Haha]. 
I am a beat maker, I just make beats. 
But that is where I do best at until I feel the need to grow 
into other genres & try new things. Nothing wrong with being a beat maker though. 

INST: Any tips, tricks, or advice that you'd like to share? 

REZ: Only advice I really have, Is be true to YOU & do what you feel is right. 
If you truly believe in your soul what you are doing is right.          
Then that's all there is to it. Cliche I know but its the truth. 

INST: Where can we hear your work? 

REZ: You can find my work just about anywhere. 
You can google me or find me on these sites.

20130310-223226.jpg Van Ark is a B.M.P (Beat Maker-Producer) who has a wide range of   styles that will satisfy your listening pleasure. His musical ability to play live instruments and sample from the dustiest of crates are far beyond your imagination. Van’s knowledge of music will make you feel like a student in music class, taking notes in preparation for a pop quiz. Beatmakers-Producers and music lovers, meet Van Ark.
INST: Let the world know who you are and where you’re from?
VA: My name is Van Ark Producer/Musician/Music Artist from Richmond,Virginia
INST: Who have you worked with & how long have been beat making or producing?
VA: I started playing trumpet in a band when I was in middle school then started making pause beat tapes during high school. Soon after, I got into making beats on various drum machines and old keyboards and went on from there. In total; I’ve been producing for 13 years and ended up working with artists such as Baatin from Slum Village, Leaf Erikson, Shuanise, and I have also done remixes for the band No Bs! Brass.
INST: What equipment and or software are you using?
20130310-223620.jpg
VA: Well as far as equipment, I’m mostly into hardware and live instruments
such as, Ludwig Drum set, Yamaha Electric Guitar, Bongos, Various Percussion Instruments, Cassette Recorder, The Roland Spds, 1978 Roland Vk-09 Organ/Synth, Boss SP-505, The korg Monotron analog synth, The Microkorg, Emu XL7, numark portable turntable, vinyl and as far as software i just use protools to record and mix in…lol thats alot but i make everything from Experimental music, Jazz, to Hip-Hop and Folk Rock so everything I metioned is utilized according to how I sculpt a live composition, performance, or beat. .
INST: What made you want to create beats?
20130310-223544.jpg
VA: When I first started; I was influenced by producers and artists, such as Stereolab, Weather Report, Prince, Bjork, Large Professor, Rza, Madlib and early Slum Village. Listening to them trained my ear as a composer, musician and a beatmaker for me to understand different ways and approaches of making music.
INST: Do you use or prefer sampling over playing live instruments?

20130310-223729.jpg VA: I would say it depends on what mood musically I’m into, so sometimes I might want to do a one man band performance and play every instrument live, or just pull out the sp-505, some vinyl, chop up some samples and make a beat so i would say it’s 50/50

INST: Who would you say has influenced your style?
VA: Some of the artists that influenced my style is Sun Ra, Raymond Scott, Suzanne Ciani, Early Kraftwerk (70-73) J-Dilla, David Axelrod, Coldcut, Pete Rock, Prince, Stereolab, Chick Corea it’s so many to name.
INST: Do you ever see yourself quitting or retiring from beat making?
VA: I don’t see myself retiring from making music because it’s my meditation and creative expression in the form of sound design.
INST: Is there a difference between being a producer and being a beat maker?
VA: I think it’s a difference because as a beatmaker you are just taking pieces of sound and putting it together as a collage of sound for a track as opposed to a producer who can operate as a musician, the person that sculpts the overall concept of the album, song and or compose the entire soundscape of the sonic plate.
INST: Any tips, tricks, or advice that you’d like to share?
VA: I would say as a beatmaker and/or producer get into listening to different styles of music and expand into playing instruments because it will broaden your horizons that will make you more versatile into various settings of musical enviroments such as working with bands, singers and artist from all genres…
INST: Where can we hear your work?
VA: you can tune in to my work at my music site www.arkteknologies.wordpress.com and please feel free to subscribe!

As a music producer, selling beats should be you primary concern. Sitting down at your keyboard to use your reason 5.0, Fruity Loops, mpc, or pro tools is fun… But if you don’t sell those beats you can’t pay the bills and really live.
