by Laura Leoncini
6d ago
Hassan Bugnard started his career as a Teacher, social worker, and school director in Switzerland.

Peacemaker, I searched online « beatmaker » , and I found that a beat maker is the person who comes up with melodies, drum patterns and loops. Put it that way, it sounds easy, I mean easy, if you know how to make beats!
