Interview: ATX Based Producer Breative

Updated: Jun 29, 2021

Breative is a 757 native that has been around the Virginia music scene for a few years. She was initially a writer for northern Virginia-based platform Lovelace Magazine and eventually began producing in 2018. She has released a couple of beat tapes since then including Bretopia in 2018 and Queendom in 2019. Her latest drops are on her Soundcloud two months ago with an Afro-Latina-influenced sound Conquista and a mellow beat called 8 A.M. In Houston. I had the honor and privilege to ask her some questions about her craft and perspective on a few different topics.

Jay: Who are some of your influences?

Breative: My dad. He is still an active drummer in his church today. A lot of my dad’s side of the family is all musicians so the influence has always been around. Definitely my dad’s family and producers I listen to on the regular like Wonder Girl, Monique Winning, and Kanye. 808s and Heartbreak is one of my favorite albums of all time and I love the production so much. It's a timeless piece of work.
