“For me i always wanted to be involved in music, but none of my experiments with music, as in trying to write songs, freestyling to myself, table beat cypher, at the lunch table, trumpet in elementary school….. None of that mattered it all began when I actually made a beat that wasn’t terrible sounding…It kinda boosted my ego/confidence & I continued to pursue it on a more passionate level. I was always experimenting with music “on the low”. “When I had CD players, I’d figured out a way to pull the headphone jack out partially so you’d Mostly hear the beat & id freestyle over it or just vibe out, I’d write songs. For some reason I was embarrassed when I was younger, kinda fearful of judgment. But that faded with majority. From there I just been working on my craft & trying to get good music out there” What song of yours is the one you like the most? “My favorite song is actually a song I just released called “Vancouver Bae Club”. Lyrics Got these girls coming like centripetal Got their tongues Flipping like reciprocals Flow so cold It bring a hoe a chill Pussy poppin for me Cuz she know it’s real   That Ass too fat My hand about to slip   Knew she was a go The way she licked her lips   Head was on fire   Swear that bitch name was cinnamon   See the way we fuck I swear it belong in cinema   Shawty roll my weed We never fucking with Reggie mane Took a shot for me Now pussy breaking The Levi mane   Bet that shit be Atlantic Throw it back if it’s aerial POV the best The views better from aerial   These theories come With consequences These trophies come expenses Member back in the days When these hoes was just Some wishes   Now we put on a show And all these Vixens Granting wishes   Guess they thought they was genies Bet that frame be a bottle Twisted thoughts probably Loosely based upon of all these… Keep Reading

Tusks

I started making music when i was about 15/16. I used to make Dubstep and DnB but as i got older i started to make more and more Hip Hop and i started to write lyrics to my beats but after a while i just got so obssesed with beat making that i stopped writing lyrics aha. What song of yours is the one you like the most? My favorite track that i have is probably What You Don’t Want Me To Be but i have changed my style completely since then and i will be releasing lots of much better stuff. How do you write your music?  I listen to a lot of old jazz music and funk to get inspired and then i just zone out for a few hours by myself as i make beats on my laptop. What influences do you have? J Dilla & Madlib are my biggest influences by far. Burial is another big influence for me and Kanye west as well. What´s the craziest experience you have had with your project?  Nothing crazy has ever happened aha. Just making lots of music and having ups and downs Mention something you don´t like about your project This is weird because the same thing i hate is the same thing i love aha, It annoys me so much that i am always changing and evolving because it means i am never happy with anything i put out but at the same time i love it because it means i am learning and becoming a better artist Mention the biggest sacrifice you did for your project. I completely stopped going out with friends and i missed a lot of college for music. Worth it though What band, music project or solist from your city do you like? (Why?)

The Filthy Teens

The Filthy Teens

“The Filthy Teens” began in mid 2014, I had finished an EP called “Lonely Hearts Club” and decided to put a band together and play a release show, I didn’t really know what was gonna happen from there, but I guess people liked it and we’ve been playing show ever since. What song of yours is the one you like the most?  Most of the songs I write I start to hate after a while if we play it live too often, I don’t really have a favourite, but people always tell me they like this song called “You and I” which is a doo-wop style song I wrote when I was 14. We haven’t put it out on any official releases, but you can hear a poorly recorded version on this Cinnamon Record Mixtape. How do you write your music? I usually come up with a chord progression or some lyrics and work out some form of melody, then I bring it to the band and we figure out a structure. What influences do you have? I take a lot of influence from other mediums of art; films, paintings, poetry etc. I’ve always had this ambition to be constantly creating something, which is something that pushes me. What´s the craziest experience you have had with your project? Nothing too crazy so far, we’re not even a year old yet. What plans do you have next? We have some upcoming shows that we’re pretty stoked about, apart from that we’re working on our new single which should be out in a few months. Mention something you don´t like about your project. There’s not too much that I don’t like about it, I “manage” the band, so sometimes answering emails and staying on top of things can get annoying. Mention the biggest sacrifice you did for your project. We haven’t had to sacrifice anything really, What band, music project or soloist from your city do you like? Straight Arrows is probably my favorite band from Sydney, super tight and raw punk band that have so much energy live, Owen Penglis’ production… Keep Reading

The Bad Apples

Matt: Mine is probably “The Death Of Rock & Roll” ‘cause its super heavy and I get to scream the chorus, it feels epic. Unfortunately we’ve not released it yet, but you’ll be able to get it on the 10th of July 2015 from our Bandcamp at www.thebadapples.bandcamp.com Tom: Erm, mines “Go Slower”, which is a b-side from the Death Of Rock & Roll single. Mainly ‘cause its really fun to play live, I really get into it. How do you write your music?  Matt: Normally i’ll write the music, send it off to tom, if he likes it then i’ll write some lyrics, then we jam it out when we see each other. It’s a bit of a weird process but that’s pretty much the only way we can do it, but it’s always music first, lyrics after. Tom: Other than that we sometimes stumble across a riff or something we like in a sound check or a warm-up, which we’ll then remember and form into a song later on. What influences do you have?  Matt: For me, it’s a lot of grunge and old Rock & Roll, e.g. Nirvana, Pixies, Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, even old Bluesmen like Howlin’ Wolf. However, I am also really influenced by heavy metal, especially Pantera. Tom: Yeah, i’m influenced by drummers like John Bonham & John Fred Young, also, Bill Wards drumming at the Black Sabbath show in Paris, 1970, when they play War Pigs! I’m also really into spoken word / Hip Hop artists, like Scroobius Pip & B. Dolan. What’s the best experience you’ve had with your project? Matt: We played this awesome show in Hemsby, but we were a bit tentative at first, we had to bring our own PA and Backline and were playing outside, then it started to rain so had to cut the gig short. Luckily, we’d brought acoustic guitars with us as well so we spent the rest of the day playing Wonderwall on repeat and getting pissed up with a load of tourists. Tom: I enjoyed playing Ruston Rocks 2014. It was the… Keep Reading
