EMRLD Beats Talks Contributions To A Billboard #1 Album

Published

on

EMRLD Beats

EMRLD Beats is cementing himself as a top producer in his lane. His work on Digga D’s latest album helped lead the famous UK drill musician to a Billboard #1 album. An impromptu studio session with Dougie B & Digga D ended up becoming one of EMRLD Beats’ most prominent placements of his career. “A Lil Promo Freestyle” turned into one of the lead tracks for Digga’s mixtape, ‘Noughty By Nature.’ That track helped solidify EMRLD Beats as one of the go-to producers in the Drill music scene. 

We got to connect with EMRLD Beats and learn more about his come-up. We discussed his musical journey, placement on a UK Billboard #1 album, and much more. Tap in below!

Where are you from/ Where are you based now?
EMRLD: I was born and raised in Portsmouth, New Hampshire; I really love it there. It’s a quaint town but is charming in a lot of ways and a beautiful place too. After high school, I spent two years in Mississippi for college. I feel like I gained a valuable perspective living in that part of America, but I won’t be going back there anytime soon. Most recently, I moved to New York City and have been living here for a year.

At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music?

EMRLD: I started producing music when I was 13; I’d upload beats to Soundcloud for fun. Music stayed a hobby for me, and I’d do it on & off until my late years of high school, where I gave it up ultimately. When the pandemic hit and I had to come home from college, I had more free time on my hands, so I picked it back up. During the years I wasn’t making music, I had become a big fan of the New York rap scene; I watched the rise of Pop Smoke and quickly became a fan of Brooklyn drill, as well as more melodic rappers. I was just enjoying the music from the sidelines. I knew many artists and was an engaged fan, but I had never even been to New York.

I made an effort during quarantine to try to get some of these guys to rap on my beats, and it was really hard to break through and get these rappers’ attention. I made my Instagram and slowly started making connections. Eventually, I got some small placements, and it was super exciting; in those moments, I started considering changing paths in life to pursue this.

What’s one reason you are passionate about music, and what inspires you? 

EMRLD: I love the feeling of hearing my music. I’m sure many musicians alike can relate to playing your unreleased music in the car or on your headphones while doing daily tasks. It doesn’t get old after the 50th listen back to back that day. It’s so comforting to me to listen to my work and think about what I like, don’t like, need to change, who I need to send it to, and tons of things, but just listening on my headphones while walking down the street, feeling excited about what rapper is going to use the beat I’m listening to, or if it’s an unreleased song that a rapper just sent back, it’ll be the excitement of how the fans will receive it. That always inspires me.

Tell us about going #1 on Billboard with Digga D? How did you guys link up? 

EMRLD: Yea, this was a big look; I was surprised by the success of this project, it put into perspective for me just how big drill music is amongst the youth in the U.K. Dougie B & I were in the studio and Melvoni called, he invited us to a studio and mentioned he was with Digga. We all linked up and I told Digga I produced the Dthang freestyle, which I had seen a clip of him freestyling to on Instagram live. We organized a studio session and a few days later made “A Lil Promo Freestyle”. Which ended up being one of the rollout singles. We made a few other crazy songs that night, which may drop in the future. I have to shout out Silverpres and my co-producers Zuko & Khxn, who all helped make this one happen.

What are the proudest moments of your music career so far?

EMRLD: This is hard to answer, I often get stuck in my head and compare myself to other young producers who may be more successful than me, which can be hard and make me feel like I haven’t accomplished enough. But when I step back and think about all I’ve accomplished since a year ago when I moved to NYC, and how I’ve made a mark in music and been able to create something that helps make a listener’s day better, I feel proud of myself. I also love my family’s support, their positivity always makes me feel good.

What’s next for you? Are you working on any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for? Include some dates if you have them.

 EMRLD: I have a ton of stuff with the Bronx drill guys coming, Songs on both Dougie B & Sha EK’s upcoming projects, I can’t give names or dates yet but these are definitely some crazy records. I’m trying really hard to get another song out with Dthang, unfortunately, he’s been locked up for a while now, but we have some great unreleased songs that I’m going to try and work with his team on releasing, maybe even from behind bars. Other than drill I have a lot of stuff in the vault with Pressa, expect some tracks from us for sure.

What message do you hope fans take away from your music?

EMRLD: Nothing too deep, just enjoy it. I love being a producer and I try to fulfill that duty to the best of my ability every time I work on something. If you’ve ever listened to a song I’ve contributed to, I appreciate it. It really means the world.

DJ MADOUT Is Elite At His Craft, A Recap!

Published

on

During the 90s, hip hop and reggae music exploded onto the forefront of the world, reaching their highest level of recognition and artist development. Music was at its prime from artists such as Jay-Z, Biggie, Gregory Isaacs, Bounty Killa, and Black Eyed Peas. This era in rap and dancehall-inspired many current emcees, singers, and disc jockeys of today’s mainstream. Motivated by his predecessors to create a distinctive atmosphere with the spin of record, it was only a matter of time before the clubs began going insane about a rising spin master, DJ MADOUT.


Disc jockey extraordinaire DJ MADOUT was not only known as a music geek who was always “extra early and always in front” when it came to music classes. Professionally trained on the saxophone and trombone, MADOUT’s ear for music began to grow and mature with sounds, beats, and notes. MADOUT was often inspired by the blended sounds of planes, trains, horns, and beatboxing influenced by the Caribbean and New York City life. A crazy combination, to say the least, MADOUT found music through all aspects of life. Influential reggae greats like Sizzla to alternative bands like Green Day greatly impacted MADOUT’S style. Like most New Yorkers, MADOUT knew that success would only happen through hard work, hustle, and the daily grind. Surrounded by the nightlife culture, the go-getter T positioned himself as a promoter. He not only coordinated many social events but also secured entertainment and even used his craft as a DJ to amplify the crowd to the highest possible level.


Known within the Bronx for the “Livest” parties, MADOUT has become a music spin man all flock to hear. People across the tri-state area anticipate his annual affairs, such as Punk Rock and Pajama Pillow Fight, among other events. He has spun for countless musicians such as Lloyd Banks, Fred DA God Son, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Marley’s, Gucci Mane, Juelz Santana, and Ace Hood, to name a few. He has also mixed for HOT 97’s WHO’S NEXT, Beauty Franchise Sephora, The Legendary Suez Rendezvous, DJ Kay Slay STR8 STUNTING Magazine, VH1’s Love & Hip Hop ATL Stevie J, and VH1’s Black Ink Crew Members Puma & Sassy and many more.


This young DJ is not only in our tri-state but is also traveling and hitting the world by storm as he recently toured the Caribbean Islands, Australia, and the UK. Be on the lookout for MADOUT as the world is gearing up to go MAD about him. He’s is one of one and you need to book him asap. His Instagram is @Djmadout.
