Oshua – Waste My Time [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Lonely Bedroom Hip-Hop

How many beats do you listen to before you end up using one? Tell us a few things about your creative process.

I’d say on average I listen to around 20-30 beats a week, I usually choose atleast 1-3 to record on.
My creative “process” is pretty non-existent, there isn’t a set way I do things but usually the vocal melody is the first thing that sticks out to me and after that I’m kind of all over the place with how the song progresses.
I also usually record the same song around 2-5 times – I’ve come to realise that on different days my voice has different emotions and therefore different sounds, its good to have more than one full take on the vocals.

Favourite rapper, lyricist and producer?

Rapper: Juice Wrld
Lyricist: Frank Ocean
Producer: Roxxee

Best Hip Hop album ever?

PERSONALLY for me its “Goodbye & Good Riddance” by Juice Wrld, I listened to a lot of lyrical rap growing up like DOOM, Gang Starr, Mos Def but the Juice album really hit home for me and it has just stuck.
There is something about the lullaby sounds and the raspy vocals that keeps me coming back.

What do you love and what do you hate about living in Australia?

I seriously love the summer and the beaches, you cannot go wrong with a beach day and Sunday beers. However, the flies are an absolute let-down, they’re always in your face – its fine because you get used to them.

Favorite music related film?

Interstellar, the eery sound-choice used in the soundtrack is something else for me, it takes me places and makes me feel some type of way.

Future plans?

I plan to release a lot of music in 2021 with new singles out almost every month, I don’t really have a clear goal in mind with music but I plan to keep on keeping on.

Thank you!
