As we prepare for the first ever #BeatsByHer Showcase, we thought it was fitting to get up close and personal with some of the incredible music influencers making an impact on the Dallas music scene. He may only go by one name but MALEX is a man of many layers and talents. Specializing in genre-breaking sound design, music production and artist mentoring & development, MALEX is devoted to the musical arts and the diverse group of creative, skilled people that have a desire to expand and grow their craft. His musical influence can be felt locally with Dallas songstresses Sarah Jaffe, Kassy Levels and BBH alum Brooke Ashley and on a national level with icons Gladys Knight and Eminen and many more.
As a special BBH guest Thursday night, we’re looking forward to hearing Malex’s thoughts on the current music scene and the role women will play in the future of music. But for now, get to know this Big D gamechanger.
Neighborhood: Desoto, TX but I have lived just about everywhere in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
MALEX:// Transplant. I was born and raised in El Paso, TX and moved to DFW right before my junior year of high school.
MALEX:// One of the things I’ve noticed when I work with female artists is that they tend to write with deeper meaning and a more introspective view of the song. My music definitely comes out really complex and dynamic when I work with a female writers.
MALEX:// Set goals, keep working. Take fear and laziness out of your daily routine. Sooner or later everyone who keeps grinding becomes successful at some point. Success doesn’t always look like what you thought it would, but the only people that I have seen fail are the ones who gave up.
MALEX:// I have been very busy working on tracks for some very big artists (who I can’t mention at the moment), as well as working on my own project that will be released world-wide in 2017. I have planted a lot of seeds this year and some of them are already starting to grow. I am expecting great things in 2017. Stay tuned.
