Hi Aniff, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hi VENTS, I’ve been hot in my non-air conditioned attic studio as l’ve been frantically working on new remixes, whilst taking in some of the fab weather we’ve been having.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Do You Really Wanna Do This”?
Yes, I put it up on Soundcloud for a couple of days then took it down. Seems a fan at Vimto really liked it and it got used in their Ad. ‘Do You Really Wanna Do This?’ is a track about a boyfriend and girlfriend having an argument and the boyfriend questioning weather his girlfriend really wanted to end the relationship.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I’m always writing stuff like this, l like stories that are easy to understand. Yeah they might have some cryptic moral tail in there but punctuated with things that peeps can relate to, and are fun.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
We will have to wait and see. Though don’t be surprised if there’s a delay, l actually have to stop myself as my mind can go into overdrive visually. Unlike music you cant just use a plugin to create what you hear in your head.
How was the recording and writing process?
Truth is that’s always the fun part , the bit where I’m cutting shapes in my room thinking “yeah man this bass line is peng it’s the lick”. Then there’s the days of writing lyrics – l still like to use paper and pen. There’s something nice about seeing all the bits that got chucked away and the flow get changed. When Nat Jay comes in and just starts singing, well that’s just next level. She’s just so easy to work with and tight and she’s amazing live too.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes there’s always new stuff ready to go, its just finding the time to get stuff finished. As I’m working with local artist like recently signed Jamie McCool and AudioKlique and Dabridge as well as some major label artist whom l cant say.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
You can get ‘Do you Really Wanna Do This?’ now on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify. I think nowadays if people want a song they shouldn’t have to wait and it’s great that they can show their appreciation by buying or sharing it on stream.
Any plans to hit the road?
