NAS 10 Questions with Patpeliz

Updated: Feb 2, 2023


This time, we get to know Patpeliz, a producer/songwriter born in Port-au-Prince, Haïti and currently based in Berlin. His style is an eclectic and soulful mix influenced by Kanye West, Travis Scott, and Lil Nas X, to name a few.


The track "The Saga" is featured in the New Artist Spotlight Family of Playlists.

1. Tell us a little about where you are from and what you are currently doing.

I was born and raised in Port-au-Prince Haiti, and now I live in Berlin, Germany. I am working full-time in a consulting broker firm. I am a one-man show artist, producing my music from scratch, but I have been grateful to have some beatmakers who collaborate with me.


2. What inspired you to start playing and making music?

I started making beats when I discovered Fruityloops from a friend, I believe I was 15 years old at the time. When I turned 17 -18, I had a friend who had a recording studio at his house and every Friday we used to go there after school and play around with the studio. That's when I started experimenting with vocal recording. At first, it started as fun, until later I decided to take it more seriously when I learned that I could generate royalties with digital platforms such as Spotify and Apple music.



𝟯. Who are your biggest influences?

I would say Kanye west. Kid Cudi, lil nas x, Travis Scott. But only the music with melodies. Not so much the rap.


4. What are your goals in the music industry?

I am not seeking fame as it could be worst than the most dangerous drugs out there ... However, I'd like like to have my music reproduced in the future by other potential artists and negotiate a royalty deal with them. I prefer the role of a songwriter rather than an artist.


5. Tell us about your creative process when you make new music.

Depending on the project, there are times when I have a beat idea and I create the beat first and then write the lyrics later. For other projects, I may only have the ideas of the lyrics; in those cases, I record my vocals without any instrumentals using simply a metronome to stay on beat, then I import the recorded vocals on a beat session and produce the beat according to my vocals.

6. What is your all-time favorite song?

State of Grace by Kirsty Hawkshaw. This song feels like it's an angel singing, and I am an angel on earth so I relate to the vibe since the sound feels familiar and resonates well with my DNA.



7. What is the best advice you have either given or received in terms of music?

Do not collab with those who want to make it; all they have is dreams but no will to achieve them. Rather, collab with those who NEED to make it OUT of a situation. They are the real soldiers; they're not fighting for a price but rather fighting for their lives.


8. Proudest accomplishment?

Being able to work with Tyler on the beat for the Song: "The Saga" is just a no Brainer. This guy is such a talented person, and I put him on a pedestal as a producer who should be working with the biggest names in this industry. For that reason, this collab has been my proudest moment.


9. Just for fun! What's been your most embarrassing moment so far?

I was once performing at a bar in Miami Beach. The place was full. I was a bit tipsy and forgot all my lyrics. I had no backup artist who knew my lyrics and could help me get back on track. Since it was not an English song, I had to pretend I was saying something although I wasn't. I honestly don't know if the crowd bought it.


𝟭0. Tell us about your lowest and highest points in music so far.

I think we call all agree that it's the fact that most people in this industry don't value music but rather want to chase the person who's in a higher position than them. Although we can all be a one-man show, sometimes we can acknowledge that someone else may be better than us in certain areas and we may want a collab but that person may only look elsewhere to a person of higher rank. The lowest is when I have big music ideas but can't find the right people. It forces me to do everything by myself and the end product ends up not being the best that it could have been.
