Empowering a Young Music Producer

BACKGROUND: 23-year old Malcolm Windvogel from Eldorado Park in Johannesburg, lives for music. He goes by “The Producer” and produces anything from hip-hop, Rnb, House, Trap to Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

“I was always interested in music from a very young age, from dancing to Michael Jackson and Chris Brown’s ‘Excuse Me Miss’, to eventually joining various dance groups in and around my community.” He did not have the means to study further after matriculating, and after a year of unemployment joined Eldos FM as a news reader.

He then became production manager and in 2017, along with two friends, started a production company, Studio 7: “to secure income, as well as to create a whole new market in South Africa for artists looking to experiment with sound”. Now, Malcolm wants to back his talent, passion and hard work up with a qualification. He’s applied to the Academy of Sound Engineering (ASE) and has been provisionally selected, but the tuition fees of around R70 000,00 for a one year course, is way out of his reach. Malcolm wrote to Good Morning Angels to ask for help.
