How long have you been creating music?
Do you have a preferred genre?
Tell us about your latest song, EP, or album.
The EP is a summary of a trip around the world. I invited artists from different countries and languages to bring their style to my beats. We have people from Brazil (voice and sax), UK, Kenya, Japan, Bahamas, USA and Mexico.
Are there any challenging aspects to writing and/or recording your music?
On this EP, the challenge was to work completely remote – artists from the whole globe working together.
Has your style evolved since the beginning of you career?
I always try to understand what is going on in the rap industry but trying to keep the style similar to what made me fall in love with music: rhythm, good vibes, and 2000s rap style production (even if the new EP have an afrobeat song – but I can explain – I lived 2 years in Angola and that built some different vibes inside me too)
What do you enjoy most about being a musician?
I enjoy the whole process of creating music. Since the idea until the final product. It is a joyful journey.
Playing live or recording in studio? Do you have a preference?
As a beatmaker, studio.
Do you have a preference… vinyl records, cassettes, CDs, or downloads?
CDs. Thats the era where I grow up.
Tell about a magical moment or positive experience that has happened through music.
The connection between different people around the world. And see my song being played on the radio.
Are there any musicians who inspire you? What qualities do you admire about them?
Dr. Dre / Pharrel. The “simplicity” to make hits
Would you like to travel to other countries to perform your music? If so, what would be your first stop?
