I have been very well amongst all the madness thank god.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Talk To Me”?
Yeah well you know we all go through things and in this case I reflect on a special situation that just didn’t work out. The situation itself didn’t necessarily amount to a bad ending though which is why I’m able to add such a vibe to a sad story.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
The process of making talk to me was actually quite fun and stressful at the same time!
So one day I wake up really early, I’m talking like maybe around 6:30 AM.
I’m not usually up this early so I was pretty proud of myself lol, after setting myself up for the day I get onto my computer and see miles sent me a new beat.
Within like 40 mins I had it, the melodies just came without much thought, I flowed between sections right till the beat stopped.
I ended up drafting it at home on my equipment and sending it over to miles to put the sauce on for me!
What was it like to work with OSH and how did that relationship develop?
Man, OSH?…. first of all that guy is super talented and he knows his sound very well so working with him was nothing short of a pleasure! Since meeting him through Dabeatfreakz we have been working together now for around a year or so, so to be able to drop my first single with him was a dope experience for me!
How much did he get to influence the song?
So he ran a writing camp and earlier that day I had made the song. So after our session I was like I made this song today you wana hear it?
He was like alright cool! He listened to that song back to back to back to back for like 15 minutes lol
Once he had enough of listening I asked what he thought and he said let’s do it now!
So although the idea came to him with only a verse space, he sat in well blended and commanded no different if not more than myself! I’d say he influences the song just as much
How did you go on sharing your creative inputs and ideas?
The great thing about creatives is that we understand there is no such thing as a bad idea in music so when working with another writer artist or producer I’m very open with giving and even receiving ideas! I think it’s essential to be open minded if you want to be the best!
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than working on your own?
Oh yeah of course! You really have to because when working with others you have the opportunity to learn something new as well as bring what you bring to the table! When working alone it’s all on you so you have that space and freedom to explore without second guessing what the person next to you thinks
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
100%! Absolutely! You can definitely expect some new material in the next coming weeks or so! Understandably we are in a testing time right now so there are more immediate things to attend to like our health and safety but you guys are going to need some good vibes in this lockdown so the show must continue!!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
So my next single is called “ Do me like that”.
Again with everything going on it will be hard to say a date for sure but we are working our best to get it to you guys ASAP!
Any plans to hit the road?
Yeah man I can’t wait till all this coronavirus madness is over so I can start performing!
What else is happening next in AV’s world?
Yeah so right now we are just working and very hard too to produce and maintain high quality music for you guys to enjoy whole heartedly! I have been making a lot of material so a project or 2 is also in the pipeline but for now I am just focused on each step ahead of me!
I wanna say thank you VENTS for having me and a big shout out to everyone supporting the journey!
