Terrence Jones, professionally known as Mista E, is a Music Producer/Writer/Film Score Composer, that founded Mista E Music in the late 90’s. Approaching his 20th year anniversary in the music business, Mista E has always had a passion for creating music. He was inspired by his father, who was a musician, and his aunt was a piano teacher. In the 9th grade, he and some friends formed a Hip Hop group, the I-45 Boys, and there Mista E began producing. Mista E said, “We were young and did not have the resources to have someone to produce beats for us, so I started producing our own beats”.
"I would hear beats in my head and skip class, because I just couldn’t wait to make them manifest in the studio. Being in the studio allows me to give my imagination a voice."
The I-45 Boys started making a buzz in their city of Dallas, TX, and were quickly signed to an independent label, Star D Records. Now having access to a recording studio, and equipment like an MPC 2000 and XP80 keyboard, Mista E took that opportunity to learn how to operate a studio. At Star D Records, he began to develop and perfect his craft.
Just like some other great music composers, Mista E’s brain also sees music as colors. When it comes to his work, he considers himself a perfectionist, due to his keen ability to see/hear colors, which aids him in identifying the perfect note or key. Mista E is a highly sought-after producer, because not only does he bring more to the table than just being a beat maker, but he also writes, comes up with concepts, hooks and verses that fit perfectly to his sound. As a visionary and a creator, he provides his clients with creative direction and plays an intricate part of the entire production.
Mista E has a wide range of versatility in his music creation. He has produced everything from R&B, to Hip Hop, Gospel, to Top 40 type records. His skillful and soulful sound can be accredited to his musical values and training, but modern day approach when it comes to production.
"My drum patterns are authentic and unique; I am very musical”, says Mista E. “I was taught at a young age by well-trained producers that the key to being a successful producer is to make sure that your kick should always have a certain punch, your snare should have a powerful pop, and your 808 should have a certain weight. This is something I think a lot of young and upcoming producers have not been taught.”
