Legendary and iconic sound engineer, Appiah Dankwah popularly known as Appietus has lectured young and upcoming producers and sound engineers on how they can succeed in the industry.
Speaking in an interview with Sister Sandy on Adom TV’s ‘Ahosepe Xtra’, he advised young beatmakers to always make sure they create beats that are enjoyable to themselves first and cautioned that they shouldn’t create beats because they feel like creating.
In sharing his rich experience on sound engineering, Appietus further advised people not to be oblivious about criticisms but rather embrace them.
He explained that they should always do so as their works will be judged and criticised when they are out.
”Basically, as a beat producer, you are the creative master of the song we are doing. So you should make sure the beat you are creating, it sounds good in your ears. Make sure when the next person hears it, it will sound good in his ears. Don’t think about yourself alone and feel like the your beat is good but also think about critics” He said.
On how songs of today don’t last in the system, he held the view that they are not of good sounds.
