Hello, this is Faya Productions!
I am an independent music professional based in Holland. I love and produce diverse genres of music from Zouk to Soca and from Reggae to dancehall music.
I run a YouTube channel, where I share my enchanting tunes and clips. I have garnered substantial followers, and subscribers; fans who love and listen to my songs. Many people made inquiries into my working style and this led me into running online music production tutorials where I got lots of views and comments.
This budding success led to load my songs on SoundClick and Soundcloud where Joy Creed, an Award- winning top gospel artist and songwriter, discovered me and contacted me to buy my first beats. Joy Creed went ahead to release a song, Rise Again, under my production. The song, released in May 29, 2011, sailed the tight storm and won ‘Caribbean song of the Year’ in Covenant Award Nomination. After that Joy has produced more hits like Tomb is Empty, Freedom and many more. We have worked together ever since on several Riddims, Reggae and Zouk hits. In fact she used nearly all my Riddims to produce a whole album called Yadda.
Joy Creed’s success paved way for many more artists to call me for varied projects. I have done collaboration with the renowned Reggae producer Benn I Productions. We have worked together and produced some beats and hits. We have learned a lot from each other and shared multiple tips and tricks that we pull to improve our stuff.
The journey this far hasn’t been a roller-coaster ride. I started trying out my fingers at the keyboard way back in 1993 when I was barely 10 years old. I was doing some kid’s songs but the keyboard was way too small to nurture my fledgling ambitions. One day I was playing the piano when I realized I couldn’t get some tunes. I had pretty good skills but the gadget was wanting. I asked my mother to get me a bigger keyboard with more keys. In 1988, my mother surprised with what I requested, and she actually did it on my birthday!
I have never looked back again. I started doing Reggae covers from known artist and my friends were enthralled. But I wanted to hype my skills, so I decided to take piano lessons. Within a couple of years I felt competent and quitted the classes.
The next stage was to combine the midi keyboard and a computer. This was 2002 and my first music programming software was Fruity Loops with which I was doing some house and trance music. It was nice for the first time but after a while I didn’t find it charming.
In 2005, I advance to Reason 4 which I found to be much better than fruity Loops. I used Reason 4 to make Reggae, Zouk and Soca covers from known artist as I honed my skills. Later I proceeded to Cubase 5 and in 2012, I decided to upgrade to Cubase 7 and that is what I currently use to create my beats.
The tough twisty road has taught me resilience, persistence and diligence as key to realizing one’s dreams.
