Who is Russo

What influenced/ Inspired you to start making beats, how did it all start

I used to listen to a lot of Timbaland productions growing up so that sort of inspired to want to also became a music producer and since i could also play the piano it was a bit easy

Where do you make and mix your beats?

Russo: My studio is in Harare in town Milnes Building 90 Robert Mugabe 

Break it down for me quickly, when you make a beat for an artist, do you come up with the concept and the tittle of the song as well? like how far is your influence on the song, does it just end with you giving an artist an instrumental or it goes deeper.

It usually takes me about an hour and half to compose a beat, sometimes I will have the chorus with me already but in most instances the artist will have the full song so I will just have to make the beat and do the arrangement and everything else.

Do you ever ghost write say a hook, a chorus or a verse for your clients?

Yes, I write hooks for most of my clients, I am a song writer  aswell
