We had the good fortune of connecting with Sin Perez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sin, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I started my own music production company basically because I wanted and needed an outlet that I could be in full control of my music creation, owning my own music catalog and keeping all my earnings from my music. I was receiving calls from independent labels as well as several known labels but they wanted a bigger portion of everything regarding my music and only wanted me to have the small portion and I wasn’t happy with that since I create everything myself so I took my own hard earned money and I started an LLC in Texas, I bet on myself and after 5 years I’ve learned everything needed to run a record label and be in full control of what I do and I don’t regret it at all.
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 sets me apart from others is I create exactly what I want to create, I don’t follow what anybody else is doing. When I make music I make exactly what I feel in that moment whether I’m happy, sad or mad and it all shows in my music. I’m really proud of my most recent song titled “Conmigo”(with me) featuring Reinum released Jan.2020 and the reason being is for two reasons, 1. It’s completely original and sounds like nothing else out there right now. 2. It’s generated 1 million views and counting throughout all streaming sites and continues to get played over seas in other spanish speaking territories so that’s a big accomplishment to me. My journey has not been easy at all because I had to learn everything completely on my own from music production to music business, I have to create the music, get it mixed and mastered, create the artwork and the merch, release the music through my digital distribution company and then I have to promote the music and repeat the whole process each time I release new music and I’ll admit it is allot of work but I love to keep myself busy because I’m a hard worker, I get that from my dad. I spent hours on top of hours researching and reading about music business, music distribution and music ownership so I could have the knowledge on how to do things because I didn’t know anybody that I could get the answers from but that’s what makes me appreciate my company so much more because I have the hands on experience and the book smarts to do this and the crazy thing is I’m a high school dropout that was once told I wouldn’t make it far in life but look at me now, I’m the only one with my own business that I started from my own hard work and hard earned money.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
There is several family owned Mexican restaurants that I go to for both food and drinks so that would be the first stop if I don’t bbq at my house with everybody there but if I do that I would most likely make these certain kind of wings that I grill and I would buy some liquor bottles to make drinks, I know a thing or two about bbq’ing and mixed drinks. I would take them to my cousin Stevie’s grave to visit and pay respects before taking them to the studio with me so they could get the personal experience up close and personal to see what’s it’s like to make music, in the studio sessions sometimes they become like a private party and the vibe that it brings usually makes everybody have a great time. After that I’d take them to a pool hall or to a club just to enjoy the rest of the of the night, nothing specific because I’m a real random spontaneous person and just like to go wherever I think will provide a good time.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would have to shout out my first biggest supporter that beleived in me before I even believed in myself, my mother. As a teenager I was a troublemaker and was often in trouble when I was outside but when I came home my little brother JP and I spent our time making beats so we could have our own sound and she bought us our first keyboard that was able to connect to our computer through a usb. When she bought that keyboard I went from running the streets to staying home and making music, I spent everyday after that making beats and recording my rhymes on those beats, I became so infatuated with teaching myself how to play the keyboard better that I would only sleep 2/4 hours a day and would often be stuck in my room day and night with my music cranked to the max studying my craft and learning and she never complained even if she had to work the next day. I still have that first keyboard she bought us till this day, Thank you Momma.
