TMC: For those who are not familiar with who you are, introduce yourself.
Amadeus: What up to all the Music Connectz readers I go by the name of Antwan "Amadeus"Thompson CEO of Platinum Boy  Music Inc. Multi-Platinum BadBoy/HitmenProducer & Trey Songz Music Director & Tour Drummer.

TMC: What was is about producing that made you want to pursue it?
Amadeus: I was always exposed to many different genres growing up so I always had an appreciation for music. Fortunately I was able to attend private school & I had the opportunity to learn & study an instrument & that instrument was the drums. As I learned that instrument it became a passion for me & was a no-brainer in regards to transitioning to production because it had everything to do with the beat. I wasn't confident at the time that I would be able to make my own beats from scratch but I gave it a shot & here I am today 15 years later as a successful CEO & record producer.

TMC: Name a few people before you that inspired you to produce?
Amadeus: Diddy & BadBoy/Hitmen Producers, Dr. Dre, Rodney Jerkins, The Neptunes, Just Blaze, Kanye West, Timbaland, Scott Storch & many more. Every one played their part in regards to me becoming a real fan of urban music & wanting to be apart.

TMC: What Genre/s do you specialize in?
Amadeus: When I 1st started producing I specialized in HipHop but as I worked towards perfecting my craft I challenged myself & join forces with other musicians and broadened my horizons so know I cansay that I specialize in a few genres HipHop, R&B, Pop & Gospel.

TMC: You have some major credits under belt. Give us a little resume.

TMC: How would you describe your Sound?
Amadeus: I can't every time I create a track I don't use the same sounds or style. I create totally off of feeling so depending upon how I feel that day is what type of track you may get from me. Coming up as a producer I vowed to myself that I wouldn't create tracks to sound the same because whenever I produced on a project I would want the audience to say "WOW Amadeus produced that record that doesn't
sound like him at all", I want to show the world that Im capable of creating anything and to never box me in!

TMC: You are the CEO of Platinum Boy Music, give us some insight on that.
Amadeus: Platinum Boy was a name I choose for my publishing as I sat in an Ascap office having to choose a name. It was pretty simple at the time I was a young boy & I wanted ALL of the records I produced to go Platinum & I knew I was a capable so I called myself Platinum Boy. Now Platinum Boy is a production company that consist of an artist Tiffany Mynon "The Angel of R&B", Producers Calico Beatz, BudaDaFuture, Grandz, Esteban "Cito" Crandle, Songwriter Eric "Sankofa" Pullins, Recording/Mix Engineer Dave Dar, Musical Director Ron Faison & Global Brand Manager Ro Garcia. So as you can see what started out as one person turned out to be a movement PLATINUM BOY MUSIC!

TMC: What is something people might not know about you?  
Amadeus: I love to be alone & I love to be home!!!
