Hi D, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
What’s poppin’ Vents. I’ve been good, life’s really been good to me recently. God is great
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Yana Darg”?
Yana Darg is a kind of slang I heard growing up. Alot of the elders in Tottenham used to say it, it’s like me saying “you get what I mean” and this whole year I’ve been saying it so I thought let me make a song about it.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Afew of my friends that are older than me and I’ve got afew friends my age that I’m always talking my fake patois to (lol) we think we’re in the film “Shottas” for some reason lol
Any plans to release a video for the single?
The video is out now via grmdaily, it got done by Summerhouse Media. They’re very dope with the visuals
How was the recording and writing process?
I already had the verses and the chorus ready so it was literally just going into the studio and getting it sounding how I hear it in my head.
What was it like to work with The Heavytrackerz and how did that relationship develop?
I’ve known Heavytrackerz for a while now, they worked on a lot of the Marvell stuff so I think we just naturally connect. Funny enough, the heavytrackerz beat wasn’t the original beat, but the beat I had before wasn’t knocking the way I wanted it to so we gave it a touch up.
How much did he get to influence the song?
G Tank from heavytrackerz is so dope at what he does naturally, he just gave it the old school grime/garage vibe that I was looking for when I first wrote the lyrics so it just flowed together in the end.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Of course, I’ve wanted to release my own music for a while now so this is all still a blessing to me. I don’t want to get complacent or gassed. I’ve got a mixtape that I’m dropping in 2017.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Im calling it “Double Vision” and I’m thinking of a January/February release but you never know what can happen.
Any plans to hit the road?
Next year the plan is to tour by myself, do shows abroad, win awards and just travel the world in general, I really think the world needs to know who Double S is now.
What else is happening next in Double S’ world?
I’ve started this thing called “Motivation Global”. You’ll hear me say this a lot next year, it’s my new Movement/Brand. I don’t want to speak too much on it, I just want my actions to do the talking but in the end it will be an Empire. Remember I told you this.
