To start 2016 properly, I had the chance to interview Lotso, a very talented American producer. If you don’t know him, you’ll be amazed by his wonderful bootlegs, remixes and original tracks. Mixing sweet melodies, L0tso knows exactly how to create a well-produced track for our listening ears to enjoy for weeks! But first, let’s get to know him a bit.
TreeHouse x Lotso Interview
TREEHOUSE: Hey Lotso, how are you my friend?
LOTSO: I'm great! How are you?
TREEHOUSE: Awesome! Are you excited for 2016?
LOTSO: Yes absolutely. I have a lot of exciting new things happening in 2016!
TREEHOUSE: Oooh exciting!! Can you explain a bit or not haha?
LOTSO: Don't know if I can talk about most of it but I have a lot of collaborations & projects in the works. Also have some live shows coming up. I'll be making announcements on my Twitter as the time gets closer!
TREEHOUSE: Can't wait! Do you have a dream collab that you would want to do?
LOTSO: Hmm dream collab would probably be Pharrell Williams because he is my God & everything he does is amazing haha. A Kaytranada’ collaboration would be pretty dope too.
TREEHOUSE: Oh yeah good choices!! What about producing? How long have you been producing? And why did you start producing? :)
LOTSO: I've been producing for about 6 years now.
I've always had a love for music. My mom bought me my first guitar in middle school & ever since then I knew I wanted to make music. I started playing in bands but I got tired of depending on other people to write music, so I decided to give producing a shot & that's how it all started.
Check out his remix of Nakala - Trusay down
TREHOUSE: Sweet, what do you think about the music industry within the platform Soundcloud? How do you feel about it?
LOTSO: I love Soundcloud. I think it's an awesome way to get discovered & build a fan base. It can get frustrating sometimes because everyone is trying to be a producer & it almost feels impossible to get your stuff heard, but I've learned that if you consistently put out good shit, the fans will come over time.
TREEHOUSE: Yes, I can spend all day on Soundcloud! I saw that you did a show a few weeks ago, how was it?
LOTSO: It was dope, I had a good time! I'm excited for the shows in January
TREEHOUSE: Besides music what do you like to do?
LOTSO: I play a lot of video games haha. Besides that I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my friends & family.
TREEHOUSE: If you were ever stuck with one person in an elevator, who would it be and why?
LOTSO: It would probably have to be Sade because she's one of my favorite singers & her voice would calm my nerves while we wait to get rescued.
TREEHOUSE: Where do you see yourself in 10 years ?
LOTSO: Hm… In 10 years I see myself married with 2 kids, living comfortably off of my music. Spreading as much love as possible, hopefully by then I'll have my own record label & such haha. Being filthy rich would be cool too but I'm a simple man.
TREEHOUSE: Haha yeah I got it. Let's talk about food for the last question; what one food would you eat for the rest of your life?
LOTSO: Pizza. Pizza is my favorite food of all time. I'll never get tired of it
TREEHOUSE: Haha thank you so much for time!
We wish Lotso the very best for the future, and look forward to his new releases!
