About

I'm Rizzal Hopper, it's my stage name as a DJ/producer and also my nickname since I was a kid. My hobbies are making music, listening to music, playing chess, writing, engaging in football discussions online. This is my blog. You can contact me on Twitter, my Facebook page and also my personal Facebook profile.

Music

When I was 15, I downloaded a software called FL Studio which was used to create music and sounds for DJs and producers. My interest in music came when my friend and I formed a music duo which we both sang in and recorded many songs but only 3 songs were found after so many years. In that year when we made the group, I started to learn more about beat-making so I used the software and made myself the beats. It's hard to figure out which was the first EDM song I have ever listened to in my life because by definition EDM music can vary. The first producers I've listened to are David Guetta, Skrillex and Timbaland but maybe there are more that I can't remember. I believe Tiesto and David Guetta are the greatest DJs/producers of all-time. I know there are people saying Guetta is fake and all but still I grew up with his music so he's still a legend. About music, I love most genres. I do not dislike any genres at all. Music is an art that should not be hated. My most favorite genres are electronic dance music, pop, hip-hop and country. Recently, I've been listening to some metal music like Disturbed, Metallica and Five Finger Death Punch. I've made a list of my 200 all-time songs which may be updated shall there be more amazing songs in the future. Also, I've been doing a weekly and monthly chart thing to post my best songs of the week. After gathering 3-5 weekly charts of a month, I will put the data together and form the monthly chart. The songs that get selected from the weekly charts are as follows: (1) Most times in the Top 3, (2) Most times in the Top 10, (3) If the values are equal then the higher placed song will get selected. For example, two songs are 3 times in the Top 10 and 1 time in the Top 3, so in the Top 3 if one song finished 2nd and the other finished 1st then the 1st will be selected for the monthly charts. Also check out my yearly charts.

Sports

I support three football clubs in Europe, among them:
(1) Liverpool (ENG)
(2) Barcelona (SPN)
(3) Borussia Dortmund (GER)

I started supporting Liverpool since the 2010/2011 season. Fernando Torres was my inspiration and idol when he was at Liverpool. His dribbling, finishing and shots were amazing. Playing FIFA on my PS2 & PSP long time ago has helped to enhance my interest in football. When I was a kid, my cousins were Man Utd supporters and they invited me to watch Man Utd game vs my country's best eleven team in 2008. I hate to say this but I was once a Man Utd supporter and my favorite players back then were Cristiano Ronaldo (obviously) and Carlos Tevez. I became a Liverpool fan as I disliked the arrogance of Sir Alex Ferguson and also Ronaldo's transfer to Real Madrid. However, I was attracted by the playing skills of Fernando Torres and his partnership with skipper Steven Gerrard. I also got attracted due to the Carlsberg logo on the Liverpool jerseys. Besides that, learning that Man Utd and Liverpool were arch rivals fueled my passion for Liverpool and sparked my hatred for Man Utd. That was my Liverpool story. As for Barca, Xavi and Iniesta were known as the greatest central midfield duos of all-time as the donned the Spanish midfield in the 2010 World Cup which is one of the reasons of my support for Barca. Another reason is the style of play (Tiki-Taka) and the perfection of the squad like Pedro, Messi and David Villa as the forward line, Xavi, Iniesta and Busquets in the midfield along with legend Puyol, Pique, Dani Alves and Eric Abidal in the defense. I became a supporter of Borussia Dortmund because of the club colors, the club massive supporters and Marco Reus who was an exceptional footballer with amazing skills. Ronaldinho had always been my favorite player even before I learnt about Liverpool and the other clubs because his name was always mentioned in my place and I've watched him play as well which was incredible. I had always regarded Ronaldinho as the one of the greatest footballers to ever exist.

(3) David Villa
(4) Leo Messi
