Ricky Balboa tha slk 1 is a music producer who has a passion for making beats.
Starting back in 2005 with just an old Mac iBook and a copy of a demo version of Reason 2.5. Tha slk 1 managed to learn the basics of building a beat with the minimal he had. With a drive and determination he never felt before he learned everything he needed to start making beats. After learning how to make beats on Reason and a midi controller tha slk 1 saved money from his full time job at a pie factory to buy his first MPC.
Tha slk 1 ended up buying the MPC 1000 and for the next four years tha slk 1 would spend all his free time on his new sampler. Inspired by hip hop producers from the 90s. Tha slk 1 would go on and learn how to make beats like his favourite producers.
As time went on tha slk 1 struggled to find his own sound and became depressed. By 2008 tha slk 1 started spending less and less time making music. He didn’t believe in himself or his music and that went on until 2013. In 2013 tha slk 1’s dad passed away and something sparked tha slk 1 to get back into music. He was reminded that life is short and you might as well go after your dream or live the rest of your life thinking what if ?
Up until this time no one ever heard tha slk 1’s music besides family and close friends. In 2014 tha slk 1 joined SoundCloud and for the first time he shared his music with the world. It was a huge relief for him as he always doubted himself and his music.
The story has just begun.
