This week’s guest on MusicTech’s My Forever Studio podcast is Sarz, an award-winning Afrobeats and hip-hop artist and producer with an impressive list of collaborators to date, including WizKid, Skrillex, Gunna, and Skepta and so many more.

During the episode, the Nigerian producer extraordinaire discusses why producer tags on tracks are more important than ever, which Amapiano sound he thinks is “genius”, and how a software mishap early in his career made him the producer he is today.

He also touches on the time he had a big Nigerian artist as a client, but when he revealed he used Fruity Loops – now FL Studio – as his DAW, the artist refused to work with him, claiming he only worked with producers who made their music in Pro Tools.

The My Forever Studio podcast – created in partnership with Audient – sees artists, producers and engineers create their dream fantasy Forever Studio, wherever they want in the universe. However, there are strict rules in the Forever Studio. Our guests are permitted a limited number of items in their creative space, so they must choose carefully. There will be nostalgia. There will be anecdotes. There may be gags. But there will be no bundles!

Last week, we spoke with quietly-beloved British producer Fraser T Smith, who has worked with the likes of Adele, Stormzy, Raye, Craig David and Kasabian. He spoke about his master-of-all-trades mic, a trusty sampler he describes as “home”, and why he can’t bring himself to hoard studio gear.
