One of the most critical areas of any mix is in the low end - the frequency area around 200Hz and below. Managing those frequencies isn't just important for your basses, low brass, kick drums, synths and other keyboards. "Hidden" low-frequency energy can play a role in your overall mix, too.
My government name is Malcolm Hi'Keem Hollingsworth I was born January 19th 1995 named after Malcolm Jamal Warner and my stage name is Bright Child. My mother's name is Lisa Cloud, (she is my world). She has been through so much, three stokes putting her in the hospital, and two more the following year put her in a wheel chair. It was very hard at first, but my sister Nika and I are helping her through it. She is learning how to walk again, and we are helping her around the house, and we can depend on our grandma when we need her the most. This is my loving family, and to me we deserve better.
I was born in Atlanta, GA. and lived in Carver Homes for about eight years. After I graduated from Kipp Ways Academy, I started high school at Carver School of the Arts. I begin writing poetry in the 5th grade, and then I begin to rap in the 6th grade after my Mom was in the hospital. Growing up mostly listening to gangster music, I started listening to Old School, R&B, Pop, and even rock. I begin to listen to music because I understand it more than anything else.
Music is now apart of me. My writing will give you something to feel and /or think about. I am asking for my listeners to have an open mind to what I have to say. I love music and if you love good music as much as I do, than I know you will love my writing. And listening to music to day, I know for a fact I have what it take to be the next Big thing (I write every day).
