How did heRobust get started?
I grew up in Atlanta making hip hop beats for friends. As my music progressed I started to get into the underground beat scene since I’ve always been influenced by Dilla and Flylo. I started to feel like I had taken that sound as far as it could go at the time and got more into the dance side of things. heRobust is a made up word so that when you listen to my music, you judge it for itself and not for my name.
You’re from Atlanta, GA. Did your local music scene provide any influence or support?
Absolutely! Atlanta has always been a hotbed for music, especially hip hop. It definitely plays a part in how I make my music.
Who were your musical influences growing up?
I didn’t listen to much electronic music growing up. When it comes to Hip Hop, everything ATL, but especially Outkast. Seeing them live for the first time this summer was a religious experience.
