Art & Life with Anubis Black

Today we’d like to introduce you to Anubis Black.

Anubis, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I was born to first generation Honduran immigrants, raised in South Central Los Angeles. I began playing music in middle school first learning to play the trumpet, then I taught myself trombone, baritone horn and tuba. I went on to college and got my degrees in audio engineering and keyboard performance. Since graduating I have performed all over LA as an MC, produced and recorded local artists as well as worked as a freelance photographer. I love music and its a part of my life in some form or fashion every single day. I love producing via sampling or composing from scratch. I just love to create!

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I make music. I produce songs from great samples that inspire me or certain sounds or textures I’ll hear out in the world that make me want to apply that to my own work. I work with Logic X, Maschine, Native Instruments, and my Roland SP404. I really enjoy recording great singers and sorting through ideas with great musicians who have endless ideas. I love helping people see their vision come to life.

I hope that people take away a piece of self expressions that inspires and empowers them to put their best foot forward in whatever it is they do.

Any advice for aspiring or new artists?
Evaluate the focus of a team before you commit to it. I find often that people are gung ho about ideas and starting processes but experience has taught me that people don’t often walk the walk. So, make sure people are solid and dependable people before you stand next to them. Be certain their work ethic aligns with their ambition or there will be a lot of running in place.
