I recently grabbed a quick interview with Sacramento artist Young Sam and artist/producer RemmyOTB (Remmy On The Beat). Be sure to support local music by sharing, streaming, and purchasing music and merch from the artists.
How long have you been making music? Who or what inspires you? Who are your influences?
RemmyOTB: My name is Riley Matranga, I go by RemmyOTB (Remmy On The Beat). I’ve been doing music for about 5 years now whether it’s producing, rapping I’m always doing something with music. Yung Sam has pushed me farther in my production skills more than anyone.
I’ve produced music for a lot of artist here in Sacramento. Purist clique, C.O.A Records as well as for some local talent down in long beach. Music isn’t a hobby or a job to me. Music is and will always be my life.
Young Sam: Hey guys I’m young sam, I’ve been making music since the age of 10, but started putting out my works in 2012. i got into music to tell my story. my music is a description of my daily life. couple of my inspirations are meek mill, machine gun kelly, and also RemmyOTB.
