Who is Johnny Slash?


1.)  Introduce yourself to the readers who may not be familiar with your brand.


I'm Johnny Slash.. I make beats and thats pretty much all i do.


2.)  When did you first discover Library Records?


I Haven't  been making beats that long.. with that said I found out about Library Records through my homie online maybe a couple years ago.


3.)  How important were they to your own sound?


As i developed my sound ( I think i still am) I found myself using super open samples.. sounds that I could add with other sounds.. I found that library records were awesome for this.. had a ton of dope open samples. So i think they are pretty important for me!


4.) In the current climate of the sampling based musician how important is it to diversify what you are sampling?


I think a lot of people end up sampling a lot of the same thing.. I don't think anyone wants to hear "Oh I sampled that before" but it happens.. I think it is important but at the same time i think what is more important is who did it better creatively..


5.)  What is it about Kersey & Castle’s library records that separate them from a lot of the Sample Packs available now?


I honestly haven't messed with a lot of sample packs to know..

What I will say is having the stems in these sample packs is a huge deal for me and allows me to really get creative.. also including the bpm is awesome too..


6.) Has the sound that Kersey & Castle created changed the way you think about Sample Packs and Stem based purchasing?


I never really had an opinion on sample packs i always thought that "Oh well everyone must have this if its a sample pack on drum broker"

However including the stems really lets me get creative and allows to pull some stuff off that maybe another producer couldn't. So i would say it has.


7.) Could you see yourself using Kersey & Castle’s sounds on major or indie placement or possibly hiring Kersey & Castle to supply you exclusive music for your own production?


Yes of course.. So far Kersey and Castle is right up my alley. I love these grimey open sounds.


8.) What are you currently working on?


Im working on announcing a new project right now along with announcing a couple of others things.. very soon!


9.) What is your preferred means of production, as in are you a hardware only person, a software only person, or a combo of both?


I love being hands on.. Mouse clicking pisses me off..


10.) What hardware or Software do you use and why?


When I started I was using Fl Studio.. I hated it.. I always wanted to get an MPC 2000xl..

A friend of mine convinced me to get a maschine saying that it was just as good and it would help out getting a tool that worked with your computer and hardware.. so I said screw it and saved up my money.. and copped a Maschine Studio for a G not knowing how to use it whatsoever haha.. I still want a MPC 2000xl just to have one...
