"Makin' It Mag"

As ‘What Happened’ climaxes, vocalist and producer Eddie Tate can be heard in the tune’s background singing, “how can I go on? I can’t thank you enough…” 'What Happened' not only immortalises Gotti’s feelings for his much-missed manager, it successfully channels an authentic, relatable sense of loss. - Making It Mag

At the age of 3, the first instrument he picked up was the drums and at age 10 the keyboard which he permanently stuck with. In 2004 when Kanye West's debut album "College Dropout" was released, ETATE got a copy from his brother. His favorite song from the album, and to this day, is "Through The Wire" which in turn inspired ETATE to become a producer and artist. His mother bought him a Yamaha DX7 when he was 11 years old. ETATE began to make beat tapes for his friends from middle school and continued through high school with their rap group titled (L.O.D. which stood for Life Or Death). L.O.D. consisted of his best friends at the time.

ETATE has been titled on many occasions as the greatest producer of all time to reside in Indiana. Integrating 60's, 70's, and 80's string arrangements and rock & soul samples, trip hop, alternative rock, classical, and western cultured music, ETATE has developed a very unique style and is known in Fort Wayne as the "King of the Minor Mode".

Kanye West & Jay - Z are still to this day, and were always his biggest inspiration. His passion for music also made him pursue a degree in music at Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne and being the one African American of his generation accepted in the music program as an applied pianist before taking off and commuting back and forth from Fort Wayne, IN to New York City to pursue music full time.
