PVLACE 808 Mafia Interview on the Producergrind Podcast. We linked up with PVLACE from 808 Mafia out in LA for an exclusive interview during his first time in the United States. In this podcast we talk about his life in Germany, how he linked up with Southside and eventually got signed to 808 Mafia because of his dope melodies. We talked about his EDM influence and how it took him a while to learn how to make bouncy trap drums. We talked about his secret sauce when making his sample sounding melodies and some VST’s he recommends for Producers. Lot of gems dropped in this episode watch it!!!
