GB is one of Colorado's next up producers. His 808s are hard hitting and melodies or what you might call flawless. He is leading the new producer wave in the Rocky Mountain State.
Q: How did you get your producer name?
A: GB comes from Gelo beats. I got the name from friends calling me Gelo and just decided to make it shorter and go by GB
Q: What was your first record placement?
A: My first placement was a song with Daboii that is currently unreleased but coming out soon
Q: What is the biggest lesson you learned while working in the music industry?
A: I think one of the biggest lessons I learned is how to network and be a people person because you can learn all these producing tips online but one thing they can’t really teach you is how to network in rooms and really connect with people because it can lead to many other opportunities.
Q: Where are you from, and how did it mold you into the person you are today ?
A: I was born and raised in Colorado I believe it molded me into the person I am today because there is not really a lot of people that become successful especially in music and put the city on so that’s something that motivates me.
Q: Who is your favorite artist to work with?
A: My favorite artist to work with is poppa xo
Q: What DAW do you use, and what is your favorite plug-in?
A: My go to DAW is FL Studio and my favorite plug-in is Omnisphere because of the variety of sounds you can get out of it
Q: What is your favorite record placement and why?
A: My favorite record placement is actually something that is in development. It's a full length project with an artist I work with named poppa xo releasing on 4/20. This is my favorite because it is something we are building all the way from scratch and I get to have my hands in the whole creative aspect of the project.
Q: What are somethings producers don't know that they should know?
A: I think something that producers should really know and learn about the business side of the music. A lot of producers in the industry get cut out and don't get paid what they should be so I recommend taking some time to learn about the business side.
Q: What makes you a hot producer?
A: I believe my ability to stay unique in whatever I’m making makes me a hot producer. Also being able to create any specific type of vibe that the artist is looking for.
