Brainy Beatz, the ace Sound engineer
Brainy Beatz, known in real life as Kingsley Kofi Tay, has indicated he is all set to work with artistes across the world since his passion of becoming an engineer was coax by spite and has earned him as the Assistant Sound Engineer at Scratch Studios.
According to him, his motive of becoming a Sound Engineer started when ‘I went to a studio at Somanya to record a demo with my senior high school music group, ‘Nsem’ and the engineer there, Lord Guru, was raising his shoulders high and his attitude always got us upset and there and then I decided to become an engineer too after high school.”
Brainy Beatz said, “Even though I decided to become a sound engineer out of spite and also show off, I started having the passion for it after my introduction to the software at Media World Broadcasting and Music Production School and started recording upcoming artistes in a friend’s studio”, he added.
He had his basic and second cycle education at Base Ordinance Depot (BOD) and Akwamuman Secondary School in the Eastern Region. He read Visual Arts and completed in the year 2007. He furthered his tertiary education at Media World in 2007 where he was introduced to the various music production softwares as Cubase, Reason, Fruity Loops (FL Studio) and had my first keyboard lessons and then preceded to the University of Education, Winneba where he studied Music from 2008 to 2010.
Challenges which can never be skipped in life, Brainy Beatz indicated that he doesn’t even recognize them when they come his way because “I enjoy what I’m doing and my passion for the work is very high and instead of giving in to challenges, I rather aim at composing massive beats and meeting with music legends such Hugh Masekela (South African Trumpeter), Teddy Osei of Osibisa fame and Sizzla (Jamaican Reggae Artiste).”
