We had the good fortune of connecting with EZM and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi EZM, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I think you should always take risks as many as possible especially when you don’t have much to lose perhaps in the beginning stages of your career, especially if the risks might benefit you and your well being. Also for me taking risks has helped me every single time whether it would be experimenting with my production or taking trip to various cities while in college to network and make music. It’s always been my number one priority.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
What separates me from others is mainly my approach and direction towards music. I like to genre bend and mesh different sounds that aren’t exactly conventional or typical. I like to make things that others aren’t and be ahead of the curve from the rest of the population. I’m most proud and excited of my growth of being a producer of the duration of 5 years; the different amount of sounds and beats I’ve made, the places I have been, certain studios with certain artists its only a glimpse of what my future will be. So far how I’ve gotten to where I am now is persistence and discipline I always have a feeling of wanting to get better do better or do more and I think that has shown and just being a student to music but of course it wasn’t easy it can be very complicated at times and mind boggling but if you love what you do so much you’re always going to keep going back to it. I’ve learned how to overcome challenges by making sure I’m being the best EZM I can be and having confidence in myself and what I’m doing yadig, having confidence in your music does a lot more sometimes additionally to its own sound if you believe in you others start to hop on the train. Cliché enough I want people to know the possibilities of doing what you love and disregarding so many others opinions and seeing progress when others don’t , but see ill have a way better answer in the future so stay tuned…

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to thank a few of my friends that particularly play a vital role in the upbringings of my career like Kloutboy; a fellow songwriter who taught me a little about producing when I first started and someone I frequently work with till this day. Also another friend of mine by the name of Justice Igunbor (41TV); someone who has kept me on my toes over the years, and as we continue to work with each other wants nothing less than greatness for the both of us.
