Hi Drexx, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hi, thanks for having me. I have been good thanks for asking.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Baggage”?
Well, Baggage is more of a collaboration single with J Splinter, it all started with me just expressing my dark thoughts through the beat and sending it to him, when he got the beat he just really did his thing. I remember him saying he just wants to step in the booth and spit verses and that’s how baggage came about.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Personally I feel the beat was made when I was at one of my lowest points mentally and I feel like you can actually feel the emotion in the drums from the snares to the kick. On behalf of J Splinter when he was writing the lyrics, I feel like it was more towards being heartbroken and how that can affect ones mental health.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Uh, we were planning to, but we had complications and the pandemic really restricted us in terms of finding the proper scenery that would best fit the song and it’s already been a month since the song has been released so I don’t really see the point of dropping the video.
The single comes off your new album The Take Off – what’s the story behind the title?
Oh nah, the song isn’t on the album it’s on a different project and the album hasn’t been released yet. The title of the project really comes from the idea of my music career taking off and I’ve just been a big fan of astrology and space in general.
How was the recording and writing process?
Honestly the recording process for Baggage was one of the best, we didn’t have to fake the vibe the energy was all natural and I think that’s what makes music really amazing because two different people can unite and make something out of this world.
What other aspects of emo music and other genres will you be tackling on this album?
Emo music is uh, something I still want to try out, I haven’t really produced enough songs to have a say on the genre but with regards to The Take Off, I don’t want to say too much but there will be a short variety of genres as it’s also a journey to finding my sound.
Where did you find the inspiration for the songs and lyrics?
The initial inspiration for The Take Off came from the Rodeo album by Travis Scott, that’s what sparked the idea and I just took it from there. For the most part it was the synths from the Pornography intro that gave me the rush.
What else is happening next in Drexxbeats’ world?
Well for the time being, you can expect a whole lot of new music with different artists and definitely The Take Off, that’s my main focus right now. I have been locked in working on making the best quality so everyone enjoys the project.
