The Surrge – Rockstar (Prod. By The Surrge & BoomBoxBilly) [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Versatile, Hyped, Surgy

You are a one man show. From songwriting to mastering everything is under your control. Tell us a few things about your creative process?

I don’t have certain formula how to start new material but obviously beat production is the beginning. I’ve learned it a while ago by recreating major hits, so recently I draw some inspiration from youtube beatmakers and remake it in my own way. Then rough mix it and freestyle over just to get the vibe going. Sometimes I write too because I might feel stuck due to language barrier. Then pull up a reference track, mix it and master it.

Is songwriting a lonely process?

Depends. Brainstorming with other creatives could be beneficial a lot. You know trading ideas with one another and kinda keep the momentum going which is super important. But at times being isolated from everyone could unveil your most intimate topics and vulnerability. People love authenticity.

Russia vs USA. What do you love and what do you hate in each place?

I love Russia for people’s mentality. They’ll get you offended for being honest. That’s something i rarely see in America. Like I don’t need you to be nice with me, just speak your heart.
I hate my country for being the biggest one in the world and yet not able to be economically stable.
I love America for opportunities. i think it’s pretty self-explanatory.
I hate America for it’s food which I’d rather call junk. If you’re not aware and still don’t educate yourself on what’s being manufactured and sold, you’ll get trapped in the system and croak because that’s what the system is designed for

Favourite album of the past decade?

I’d say “Stoney” by Post Malone. Legendary. Production nuts. And he went off too hard. I think I love every tune on that shit.

What is the most useless talent you have?

Overthinking. I might fixate on something for quite some time. But recently I’ve learned how tame it by meditating. Still in the process tho.

One last thing we should know about you?

I’ve gotten super spiritual over time. Thats’s the only way to get away from this greedy world powered by material values. And I’d love to pass it onto my supporters and surround myself with like-minded people. Not that I’m trying to preach, it’s just that my knowledge might have a huge impact on someone’s life if they open to it.

Thank you!
