The Ukraine-Born Producer Milian Beatz Speaks on his Father’s Influence and Upcoming Music
While leading a life that is anything but ordinary, Maximilian Rostopora – known in the music industry as Milian Beatz – is making a name for himself as one of the next big producers. Born in Kyiv, Ukraine, Rostopora discovered an early love for music through his father, a multi-faceted musician who helped show Maximillian all he knew. By the age of 12, Maximillian was already playing multiple instruments himself and was making music of his own. However, tragedy struck him and his family when Rostopora was only 15: his father passed away unexpectedly.
After his father’s death, Rostopora and his family moved to Los Angeles, where they had lived for a year when he was a child, and he truly took his musical abilities into his own hands. “I was constantly on the lookout for other artists to work and create with, but nothing was really happening,” recalls Rostopora. At this point, he began producing under the moniker, Milian Beatz, which he still uses today. “I started making hip-hop beats on Logic and networking at various studios throughout Los Angeles,” states Milian Beatz. “From there, I met many artists that I still work with today and my manager Barry Rosenblum, as well.” As Milian Beatz, Rostopora has only begun to prove what he is capable of, and he is well aware of his potential.
His passion for music and unique life experiences have molded a drive in Milian Beatz that few others possess. “I don’t take the opportunities I have been given for granted, and I want people to know that I am hungry every single time they hear my tag on a beat.” Milian Beatz has landed credits with artists like ursa the Chef and Skippa da Flippa, and he is always working in the studio. More music is expected in the coming year from Milian Beatz, including a full project with Skippa da Flippa, which is likely to only solidify the talent he has shown up to this point. “I am not even close to where I believe I will go,” Milian Beatz comments.
