CEO of Platinum Boy Music Inc./TheHitmen/
TMC: For those who are not familiar with who you are, introduce yourself.
Amadeus: What up to all the Music Connectz readers I go by the name of Antwan "Amadeus" Thompson CEO of Platinum Boy Music Inc. Multi-Platinum BadBoy/HitmenProducer & Trey Songz Music Director & Tour Drummer.
TMC: What was is about producing that made you want to pursue it?
Amadeus: I was always exposed to many different genres growing up so I always had an appreciation for music. Fortunately I was able to attend private school & I had the opportunity to learn & study an instrument & that instrument was the drums. As I learned that instrument it became a passion for me & was a no-brainer in regards to transitioning to production because it had everything to do with the beat. I wasn't confident at the time that I would be able to make my own beats from scratch but I gave it a shot & here I am today 15 years later as a successful CEO & record producer.
TMC: Name a few people before you that inspired you to produce?
Amadeus: Diddy & BadBoy/Hitmen Producers, Dr. Dre, Rodney Jerkins, The Neptunes, Just Blaze, Kanye West, Timbaland, Scott Storch & many more. Every one played their part in regards to me becoming a real fan of urban music & wanting to be apart.
TMC: What Genre/s do you specialize in?
Amadeus: When I 1st started producing I specialized in HipHop but as I worked towards perfecting my craft I challenged myself & join forces with other musicians and broadened my horizons so know I can say that I specialize in a few genres HipHop, R&B, Pop & Gospel.
TMC: You have some major credits under belt. Give us a little resume.
Amadeus: I've been blessed to have produced for over 50 artists such as 50Cent, Fabolous, Jeezy, T.I, Keyshia Cole, Lil Mo, Jim Jones, Trey Songz, Busta Rhymes, G-Unit, Marques Houston, Remy Ma, Lil Wayne, Vado, Jae Millz, Papoose, Talib Kweli, Fred TheGodSon, Cam'ron, Juelz Santana, Joe Budden, Freeway, Foxy Brown, Bow Wow, Danity Kane, Donnie Klang, Cheri Dennis, Paul Wall, Cee-Lo Green, Red Cafe, Aasim The Answer, Keith Murray, Canibus & many more.
TMC: How would you describe your Sound?
Amadeus: I can't every time I create a track I don't use the same sounds or style. I create totally off of feeling so depending upon how I feel that day is what type of track you may get from me. Coming up as a producer I vowed to myself that I wouldn't create tracks to sound the same because whenever I produced on a project I would want the audience to say "WOW Amadeus produced that record that doesn't sound like him at all", I want to show the world that Im capable of creating anything and to never box me in!
TMC: You are the CEO of Platinum Boy Music, give us some insight on that.
Amadeus: Platinum Boy was a name I choose for my publishing as I sat in an Ascap office having to choose a name. It was pretty simple at the time I was a young boy & I wanted ALL of the records I produced to go Platinum & I knew I was a capable so I called myself Platinum Boy. Now Platinum Boy is a production company that consist of an artist Tiffany Mynon "The Angel of R&B", Producers Calico Beatz, BudaDaFuture, Grandz, Esteban "Cito" Crandle, Songwriter Eric "Sankofa" Pullins, Recording/Mix Engineer Dave Dar, Musical Director Ron Faison & Global Brand Manager Ro Garcia. So as you can see what started out as one person turned out to be a movement PLATINUM BOY MUSIC!
TMC: What is something people might not know about you?
Amadeus: I love to be alone & I love to be home!!!
TMC: What does Amadeus have coming up in the near future?
Amadeus: Look out for Platinum Boy Music's own Tiffany Mynon "The Angel of R&B" album coming soon, of course I will continue to produce record for all of your favorite major artists, & touring the world with Trey Songz as his Music Director/Tour Drummer. Also make sure to support & purchase the new Justin Bieber Christmas album in stores 11/1/11 Under The Mistletoe I produced a song on that album titled "Christmas Eve" written by Justin Bieber, Chris Brown & Kevin McCall MAJOR!!!.
