Copydbwoy: Please introduce yourself.
Prettybwoy: I’m 33 years old DJ & producer. My real name is Nobuto, DJ-name is Prettybwoy. I’m from Tokyo, Japan.
Copydbwoy: My favorite question. What’s the story behind your nickname?
Prettybwoy: Haha! Japanese girl loving to say ‘Kawaii’, which means ‘Pretty’. I think, it’s a catchy name for Japanese
Copydbwoy: That’s awesome. Your name talks for itself, you are pretty young man, no homo.
Copydbwoy: Tell about mix you’ve done for my podcast. Where from did you get those tracks from?
Prettybwoy: Got some promos and dubplates to put in the mix so I used them in collaboration with MC Pakin who hosted this & dropped some bars in this mix.
Copydbwoy: How long do you produce/DJ?
Prettybwoy: As DJ I played for the first time in 2006. I’m making beats for three years, started in 2011.
Copydbwoy: What are your general musical roots?
Prettybwoy: 90′s Hip-Hop and R&B, 00′s 2step garage which I used to listen in my school days.
Copydbwoy: How it happened so you came to grime?
Prettybwoy: I like aggressive sound in UK garage. Dark garage and grime vibes.
Copydbwoy: Tell a bit about your production process.
Prettybwoy: In many cases, I basically make it from kick and snere. When a good beat is done I’m switching on further production when idea comes to me.
Copydbwoy: What kind of equipment do you use?
Prettybwoy: I use FLstudio. Laptop only.
Copydbwoy: That’s wicked! You need almost nothing to do big things these days. That’s where basic, grime idea came from. Do beats on whatever equipment you’ve got.
Copydbwoy: Tell about your influences, fav producers, DJ’s, radio stations.
