Tell us a few things about your new work ‘Do That…’ and your creative process in general.
When I made the beat, I knew I had something, cause my neck was snapping… hard.
Lyrically it went through a few iterations before I found a flow that fitted. The process has changed over the years but now it’s work on a record for a few weeks… and most don’t even get heard by anyone.Still trying to define and cultivate a sound, so I’m cherry picking ones that I like.
Mauritius, Nigeria, Glasgow..What do you love and what do you hate in each place?
The people in every place. The interactions u have with locals is so important as a child. Showed me that we all the sameThe food.
The lifestyles are so different and I enjoyed embracing it. Coming from a mixed background this was actively encouraged in our house.
Hate is a strong word, and I’m all bout the positive vibes.
You have experience from different audiences as a stand up comedian and musician. Are the tactics to warm up the people similar and which of the two is easier?
Neither I would say is easy.
They both pose a challenge in differing ways, I enjoy both equally and find it therapeutic.
Both audiences can be tough, just with stand up you can see them and you get an instant feedback. So that can be great, but when your bombing… u can try change it up or go all jihadi John and take everybody down with u. I like the latter. Own ur shit.
Music is so diff these days, it’s all like a video game. I’m just hoping my songs can connect with some people. Just to get someone to listen is awesome.
If I can get people checking me on both, that would be awesome.
We as artists are brands these days, so you gotta diversify. Show our value. And put the work in.
Favourite album of the past decade?
Okay so we saying beginning to end dope as fuck shit.
I can’t lie Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night sweats 2015 album is sooo good for its genre bending revamp.
Yeezys cause it had Beats, bars and bar a few tracks was incredible.
What would you change in the music industry?
It’s changed so much in such a short time, so I don’t know. I barely understand it as it is. Are plays real plays? can you ever be sure? Spotify is all that matters?
I would just like a way for people to be able to listen to the little people.
One last thing we should know about you?
Something about me.
I did the vocals on the GBX (Big Deal in Scotland) classic. Espanglish
Nobody knows it’s me and though it still gets played, I don’t get paid.
Make sure u do ur due diligence people, don’t be me. Haha
