What first drew you into music and rap/hip-hop in particular?
I started making EDM in 2012 trying to be like Diplo or some shit but when I got into high school I started listening to more rap music and other producers. I got into Travis Scott, Kid Cudi, and Kanye after the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.
I also got really interested in finding new music on SoundCloud like Whereisalex, Oshi, and West1one. I listened to them a lot and I think thats what led to me making rap.
Your track “Under Pressure” is very modern and the lyrics are amazing! How did you achieve such a great signature sound in such a short time? Also, what is your creative process like?
Thank you glad you like it. Under Pressure is funny because it’s true. I was in LA with my homies and we got our shit beat. The fools were old as hell too defiantly upward of 35, I still don’t know why it happened.
Anyways, like a day later I listened the Under Pressure hook I recorded couple weeks back and wanted to write the verses about that night. Thats one of the only songs where I wrote about a specific day,
I usually write about how I feel and just about things that I think people will relate to. My sound right now is just a mix of different music I listened to with my own take. I really like drums so I’ve always been trying and adding new patterns and I think that’s how people recognize my beats.
You have recently released a track titled “Cookies” The track is a modern Hip-hop/Trap fusion and we wonder if you plan to release more trap sounding tracks in the future?
Yea, I don’t think I make trap music but it’s defiantly inspired by it. That song was easy to write because I didn’t have to think that hard. I really like the type of melodic rap that’s out and think there are a lot of people taking it far. My new music is definitely with the new rap wave.
What are your musical goals for the future?
Right now I’m just focusing on collaborating and working with people from where I live. I think working with other people really helps you grow in producing. I have a group of friends that produce and rap and we can just hit each other up with ideas and beats its cool. In the future, I hope I’m still be making beats and having the same energy I do.
Eventually, I want to get into doing live sets and doing shows. Also, I want to release an instrumental tape on my Herbie Hancock shit.
What are your goals for the summer? Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
This summer I’m dropping a project Sir Air I’ve been working on the past couple months. It took me a minute to get some sounds right but I’m very happy how it’s turning out. If you like my music I have out now I think you will really like Sir Air. I’m gonna drop it in July.
