Judah Dub – Miles Away [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

I would say, creative, experimental, and powerful

Tell us a few things about your new song. What is the main idea behind it?

The main idea behind the song is about everyone’s general experience about “simping” or crushing on someone that deserve better. This has happened to me so I am just telling it from my point of view. How I felt at the time. Really just understanding why someone would fall for the wrong person over and over again, while there are others who are willing to treat them better.

This ep tells the story about your past, current, and future outlook of your relationships. Is songwriting a form of communication?

In a nutshell, it is a form of communication. “Miles Away” is a taste of that story. It is a prologue. My experiences with relationships shape this narrative about one girl, but in reality, it is more of a generelization of how relationships can mirror each other. And with the same approach, courtship, relationships, and breakups can feel like its the exact same process, even if its with a different person.

Favourite rapper, lyricist and producer?

That feels like a loaded question lol It honestly varies every single day. But as of right now, I want to say (but obviously its multiple artist, lyricists, and producers) Kendrick, Jcole, and Hitboy. Bonus, Fave artist is Drake.

All time, Tupac, Eminem, and Pharell. Artist: Outkast

But honestly, don’t mean to be indecisive but it changes. I love Lil Baby right now. Even a sprinkle of K-Pop here and there as well.

How Important are political statements by music artists? Can music have an impact on politics?

HUGE. I think it def should be exercised more. But on that note, I feel like the topics discussed or expressed should be thoroughly examined. I just feel as if people just use political statements in music to get clout or sometimes it’s just a reaction to the first thing they see. I think people just react to hastily to the first thing they see and hear, which becomes their bias. I’m not saying that those reactions are incorrect, what I am saying though is knowing the full facts definitely helps us express our opinions better and more fully with engaging thoughts. IF it’s done that way, I feel like you can really feel the authenticity of the person making those statements.

In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?

Honestly, everyone. I think my music is about the generalization of everyday life. Everyone can relate to love, heartbreak, disappointments, some type of bullying, anxiety, rejection, etc. My music is about life and the stories behind my eyes. Its the stories that makes each individual unique. But we all go down the same road to find success, love, or self-fulfillment. Same path, but different houses.

What is the story behind your name?

Judah came from one of my favorite boxers and Waterfalls is a name that was given to me because of how wildly I played (basketball). I was just non-stop lol. But the Dub version of Judah Dub obviously is a shortened version of Waterfalls.

Thank you!
