Producer Mouse on the Track is planning the next level of his career, now that he is out of his recording contract Trill Entertainment.
While Mouse and Trill Entertainment seem to have parted ways amicably, the producer left the label due to “bad business” practices.
“I signed as an in-house producer, but a contract can be perfect and everything can be all good and fair,” Mouse told AllHipHop.com. “What’ll make a contract go bad is when somebody doesn’t abide by it. I’d say I did about 90% of it, pretty much everything that was on the charts and radio was pretty much me but all the money didn’t reflect that.”
It was Mouse’s production that helped craft the sound of Trill Entertainment.
Mouse on the Track spent over 10 years with Trill Entertainment as the in-house producer for the label, producing hits like “Wipe Me Down,” by Boosie and Webbie,”Independent B***h,” and a variety of hits by Bun B., Pail Wall and others.
“I wouldn’t just put myself in a box, but the sound that I made popular is that Baton Rouge bounce, with the layered synths, intense high hats, rich key boards, hits and stabs along with heavy drum patterns, that fun club gangsta sound in one mix.
“It’s a mixture of Lil Jon, KLC, a big mixture of Mannie Fresh, some Pimp C, all the stuff I grew up listening to, all combined and that’s pretty much what all producers do is take music they’re fans of and put their own twist on it,” Mouse continued. “It even has a little soul from the church I guess, it just sits well with people because they can feel it.”
Mouse on the Track is working on new music with Juvenile, Rocko, Kevin Gates, Lil Cali and others.
