- Describe your sound in three words
Energetic, soulful and unique.
- You blend different genres from UK Garage to Grime. Which are your major musical influences?
I started listening to Grime when I was at school, mainly Ghetts and Devlin… when they would go back to back on a track or a set I would literally lose my mind.
- Do you think there is a true underground hip hop sound today?
I believe that there will always be an underground scene. When certain artists who have been grinding for years on end finally begin to get recognition, it inspires the younger generation to start their own musical journey, and they then take their idols place in the ‘underground’.
- Which is the main difference in your opinion between the UK rap scene compared to the US rap?
Personally, I can’t really put my finger on a main difference, but I have always preferred UK rap in general, I’m not quite sure why… maybe because I can relate to the artists more as I’m from the same country as them? Who knows. Both have produced many exceptional artists over the years though.
- Best Hip Hop album ever?
My favourite Hip-Hop album ever has got to be 2001 by Dre.
- What was the best film you have watched during the quarantine?
The best film I have watched since the lockdowns began is a heartwarming, true story called Green Book.
- Any future plans?
My next single is due to be released soon, I’ll be posting all the details on my social media pages @readeyofficial when the time is right, aside from that I have no idea what else is in store as of yet! I will more than likely put some kind of project together within the next few months, possibly a UK Garage one this time as most of my supporters have expressed how much they like it when I harness this genre. It also feels like a very natural process in the writing stage as a lot of the instrumentals tend to resonate with me as a person.
- Thank you!
