Welcome to VENTS MAGAZINE ! How have you been?
I appreciate it! I’ve been mad busy but blessed yeah thanks!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Millennial”?
Sure thing. In a nutshell, Millennial pretty much touches upon the dark side of our current society; the lack of authenticity, the rise of egotism and lack of genuine and honest communication between people.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Not particularly. I just got to a point where I became so fed up with the state of society and the way things appeared to be running, that I decided to write a track about it and how I felt towards it. In a way, just being present on instagram and seeing the amount of superficial jargon that’s displayed on there pushed me to put pen to paper.
How was the filming process and experience behind the video?
It was quite a heavy project to execute but such a sick experience. I’ve known Nizmo and Evander for almost 8 years so working with them just felt natural, like working with family. The whole team just worked and it was so blessed to work with such skilled and kind people. Seeing the vision come to life during the process was encouraging. We barely ate though! Working with 6 hungry men taught me a lot!
How was the recording and writing process?
At the time, I had taken a trip up to West Wales and stayed in a flat by the sea because I had a Hebrew exam I needed to study for. I couldn’t focus on studying so I just started to write and before I knew it, within 1hour and a half I had written and recorded a demo of the track so the process was kinda quick.
How your faith influences your writing?
I guess what we write is a depiction and representation of our mindset and lifestyle; faith is a major part of that, so it influences my material for sure. I choose not to cuss and discuss superficial topics but instead something uplifting and positive.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than in your own?
Nah not really. I’ll never agree to collaborate with another artist if I feel like mindset will be compromised. When I do though, I guess it depends on the subject matter I’m presented with but I try to be tactical with the way I write and put the artist’s vision first and then see how I can work with it.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Oh for sure! My gosh, I’ve got like 100’s of tracks just sat on my laptop right now – It’s just a matter of deciding which one to release first!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
