We were so excited to chat with rising beat maker Mitch Mula. For the last few years, Mitch has been out here solidifying his name in the music game by producing some of our favorite bangers. You probably recognize the name from his exhilarating production tag “You know it’s Mitch Mula!” from Juice WRLD’s smash “Scared of love” off his project Goodbye & Good Riddance. Mitch has worked with Artists such as: Yo Gotti, T-Pain, T.I., YFN Lucci, Maxo Kream and many more. His production credits list is growing rapidly and his come up is one for the books! Get to know this talented producer by reading our inspirational interview with him below!
RESPECT.: Who is Mitch Mula?
I am a music producer, songwriter, engineer, whatever I need to be is who I am. I am from Florida and I moved to New York last September. I am 25 and I graduated college and majored in business marketing over at South Carolina State University.
RESPECT.: Are you able to describe your production style?
I don’t have a particular sound and I’m not stuck in a box of what I could create. It’s different with whatever song I’m working with and the different artists. Like you mentioned me working with Juice. I went from working with an artist like Maxo Kream to an artist like Juice Wrld. These tracks have two completely different sounds. My production style is based on whatever I’m feeling.
RESPECT.: When did this production journey begin?
I was in college playing football my senior year and I ended up getting hurt. I was actually on my way to the NFL. This was 2015 so this was 3 years ago and then I started producing. I had a homie over at Live Mixtapes and I sent him a couple beats before. When I got injured I told him football was over for me and I need to get this Grammy. Next thing I know, I’m on crutches in Cleveland working with an artist and he ended up managing me. I had a choice to either sit around, mope, and deal with it however or get back on my feet.
RESPECT.: So you go from almost entering into the NFL, getting injured, to now having a huge record under your belt. Let’s talk about your most recent hit “Scared Of Love.” How did that come about?
Yeah that’s the homie. We have a project worth of records. I am just waiting to see what he wants to put out. I knew about him way before we linked up. I came across his instagram profile months before and I listened to a few songs of his and was like this dude is nice. He had like 800 followers at the time. I flew to Chicago and my homie linked us up then we got into the session and we did 5 records. “Scared Of Love” was the 5th record we did. I knew the track was special. When I played the beat he looked at me and was like I don’t know what this is but this is it.
RESPECT.: Since the song dropped, how has life changed for you?
I’ve received a lot more attention and a lot of work has opened up. That record has really kicked down the door for me and my team. We have been putting in work for a long time. A lot has changed.
RESPECT.: What can we expect from you next and what do you hope to accomplish by the end of 2018.
By the end of 2018 I expect my name to become a household name and the stamp of my name in the game to be more definite. I actually have a song on the way with T-Pain coming out this fall and that record is going to do for me what I plan to accomplish in 2018.
