“Adicto” is a song about me not being able to be separated from that one love that has been unique. I cannot Imagine my life without that person and the thought of being away is a scary one. The instrumentation is very good and the vocal arrangements I love the most.

Could you describe your creative process? Where did the ideas come from, how were they transformed in your mind, what did you start with and how do you refine these beginnings into the finished work of art?

I have different creative processes and it all depends on the idea that comes first. It can be the lyrics or the melody or a beat I start with, I save it and as the days pass I start to develop it and make it into something more like a song.

Writing & Music comes naturally but the mixing part of the production has required me to learn a whole new set of things than before an artist wouldn’t have to.
