You recently released Tun Up and collaborated with Leftside. How did that started
“The track Tun Up initially started with producer Darr3n (known from tracks with Afrobros, Kalibwoy, Emms (Broederliefde) & Frenna). I invited him at GinDaroCa in the studio and together we went vibing and before I knew it they made a beat. A week later I came back to the studio where I recorded the hook and the verse. I didn’t do anything with the track for a while until I came into contact with Leftside. I’m a fan of his work and I love his songs with Major Lazor and Sean Paul, among others. We started talking on Insta and I sent him a snippet of the track Tun Up. He really digged it and recorded a verse within a week… and the rest is history ?”
Before you started your career as a music artist, you were already a well known MC at various events. How did you make that move and why?
“After being on the stage for years as an MC, I was ready for a new challenge. I wanted to be more than just a sidekick for the DJ and decided to take a step back on stage in order to take 2 steps forward. At that time I had a vision about my own show and I started working behind the scenes to realize this vision. I mainly used this period to find my own signature sound, create songs and to develop myself as a music artist.”
What can we expect from you in the near future?
“I’m a fan of Caribbean music: reggae, dancehall and afro vibes. You will hear that in my music too. I made a lot of tracks and I can’t wait to share these songs with everyone. We are just getting started.”
Where will you be in 5 years?
“Music is my passion. In 5 years I will still expect to be active in this business. But perhaps in a different role. Coaching young people in their career, A&R or perhaps running my own label.”
Why did you choose Signature as a label?
“After the first meeting with Signature, there was a click. That is very important for me. In addition, they were very enthusiastic about my music and vision and they mainly want to support and encourage me in this. I look forward to walking this path with them, to grow together and to achieve multiple succes.”
