Music Choice of the Month 3/2019: TreeHouze
TreeHouze strives to construct sounds that speak to the inner wave. A Kalamazoo native, TreeHouze uses homegrown sounds and samples to create vibes that entice the soul. Surrounded by music since childhood, this producer/DJ finds inspiration in songs ranging from the Isley Brothers, the Neptunes, Curtis Mayfield, and Curen$y.
His goal is to create an atmosphere that is mellow and free of melancholy. TreeHouze first began exploring sounds at the age of 12 after seeing Jay-Z’s documentary on ‘The Black Album ‘. He became inspired after learning about how music producer 9th Wonder created Jay-Z’s song ‘Threats ‘ in 20 minutes on music production software Fl Studio.
Together with a friend, he would practice before and after school religiously in order to hone his skill. He was also able to start making beats in a production class he took while in middle school. TreeHouze began sharing his music with the world in the summer of 2015 with the release of ‘TreeHouse Session: Vol. 1‘ via Soundcloud, and has released several other mixes and beat tapes with the most recent ‘TreeHouse ‘ in January 2018.
