Here are the 5 things that Void Deck Fellas always believe.
Believe what's life without passion. Without passion you won't have Goals in life. You feel lost. As an Artist, what drives you are passion. Talent can be polished. Most importantly are your passion that drives you. The fire in you that pushes you to achieve your dreams is passion. Passion will push you to where you want to be.
2. Be Positive
Good attitude goes a long way. Stay positive don't care or bother about what people're said. Most importantly, you got to believe in yourself. Get rid of all negativity in you. You design your life to be what you want. It's challenging to work on your dreams that's the reason why you need positivity in you as a fuel to your passion.
3. Stay Productive
Keep polishing your skills. If you are a rapper/singer, keep singing or rap. Work on schedule is to motivate you such as do #33daysrapcypher. Post it on your IG. All you need is 10% of your life everyday to stay productive and trust me it will change into a habit. You will feel uncomfortable once you did not do it.
Trust the process, when you keep pushing your passion and stay positive. You will be more productive and your level of commitment will grow. The energy will grow. The harder you work the luckier you will be. Insteads of 10% everyday it will grow more as you stay committed.
Progress will only happen when you stay consistent. Obstacle will happen but whatever it is. Lock in your mind always stay consistent. Give yourself a timeline and the best is always challenge yourself to change your habit or work on your productivity for 33 days.
It's Mont Berg, founder of Sei Shuttle Records. My profession is to help celebrities, independant artist and upcoming artist to be in the game. Be it online or in the music industry.
I'm currently based in Malaysia as I started my label in Singapore since 2009 and I expand it to Malaysia market this year 2018. The reason why I started my record label is because I was jobless after graduating from my Degree. I tried freelance in Audio industry but what I really want was to sit in the studio and mix or produce songs for Artist. Sadly, my country doesn't believe in that. Every year, every 5 studios in Singapore 3 will close down. So, I got to start using my company to get jobs. Thanks to SAE (Singapore) for the scholarship and the business plan that they equip me after my graduation.
My journey starts with managing 28 members of StonedChilledKids. We produced 2 mixtapes and 3 monthly EP/Tapes. It was fun but sadly some lost the vision and things happen as I didn't want the revolution of negative images to the future generations. Back then to be honest was crazy! StonedChilledKids last for 2 years but deep in every brothers heart, we are #SCK4LIFE SCK GINNA PA BE TOH!
During that journey too, StonedChilledKids created a bi-monthly event called Enter The Void Deck. The event when super well. Crowd were crazy, we have kids grabbing mic every time wanting to spit bars during "Spit ur 16 je!". A bi-monthly event with different kind of theme every event. We even have ETVD Awards and we manage to invite our homies across the border to join us for 2nd Anniversary. Sadly I lost the vibes and our finance were bleeding. I really wish someone could bring that legacy back.
The journey continues Void Deck Fellas was born after we end our StonedChilledKids lifestyle. Some still continue the legacy, some became a member group Thir13en, Hybreed Society and some just when quiet. I still have the love for StonedChilledKids.
For me, Sei Shuttle Records will always be my baby like how much my mom believe in Sei Shuttle Records. Void Deck Fellas keep producing songs. I have 2 producers and 4 rappers. Sadly now left 2 producers and 2 rappers. We still tight no matter. Void Deck Fellas managed to penetrate to Malaysia Hip Hop. The track "Bawah Kolong" managed to win the hearts of Malaysia Hip Hop fans. We feel grateful as The Bat Cave and Lawalah Familia was always a fam to us. We always invite them for our shows and in return hospitality to their country was always great!.
Thats where, KC, found my potential and my talent after ETVD Awards. His been following me and always wants me to be part of Lawalah Familia. During that time every Lawalah Familia shows, Void Deck Fellas will always do an opening for Lawalah Familia. On 2 July 2016, during Ramadhan, I remember the founder of Lawalah Familia which is Rahh5kaki and Sabbala invited to be part of Lawalah Familia and represent Singa Lawalah. It's been 3 years I'm with Lawalah Familia and the feeling of SCK in them is always there. Lawalah Familia been great to me, they are alway my 2nd Family in Malaysia. Without them I'm won't be here in KL.
Currently, I'm back on my label with the same vision since Day 1, working to help my fellow brothers to put food on their table with their passion. Demo Class been great getting many people from different walks of their life to push their art on the next level. We been pushing and selling our compose songs to artist. recording, mixing & mastering. Working on my next EP with Azzim, homebwoi from JB.
Proud of Void Deck Fellas, CrazyButCool and AXLBEATSBABY working on the plans for Sei Shuttle Records (Singapore) with their vision. Enter The Void Deck with Joshua handling it and not to forget Hariz, Am Tha Kid, Rapkyle, Angeline you guys been great being part of my life running Sei Shuttle Records.
I'm back in business!
