Q&A / squeeda

What or who inspired you to start making music?

  • I would have to say, my dad. He’s always been a musician, and growing up there were always instruments around like flutes, saxophones, and pianos, and eventually, I added trumpet, bass, and guitar to that list as a kid.

 

What is your creative process like when making music?

  • It’s rarely the same. Maybe it should be, but I’m one of those producers that just throws a bunch of content at the wall and then subtracts, using my ear to feel out what fits best. It’s like the song is a big block of stone, and I chisel away until it takes a form all its own. My only rule is that I walk away after a few hours so I don’t get lost trying to do too much at once. It’s always crystal clear what’s needed after the ears rest a bit. 

 

What inspires you the most in your daily life? Why?

  • All the things that move me and make me feel emotion. My son is a huge inspiration to me. seeing the things he’s experiencing really allows me to reflect on my own life. My girlfriend, in the way she expresses love, and the past I’ve been through.

 

Where do you feel the most centered and happy?

  • In the flow state creating, or in nature enjoying life with friends.

 

If you could relive one moment from your life, which would it be?

  • Probably the first time I ever got in front of a large crowd with my guitar. That feeling is indescribable, and never the same once you get used to it. 

 

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

  • Feed the good fire.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Why?

  • I’d have a remote place somewhere with trees and water, and another pad in the city, so I could run to the other one when I get sick of the weather. Plus I just like being able to switch up my surroundings like that. Breeds creativity

 

Aside from lofi/chill beats, what is your favorite music genre?

  • Aside from anything, I have an unyielding thirst for the most brutal deathcore in existence. Lorna Shore or The Acacia Strain lately. I’ve also been slightly obsessed with the FM synthesis stuff happening in the bass world from Eprom & Alix Perez of Shades.

 

What do you wish you could tell yourself five years ago?

  • I wish I could smack him and say ‘stop being an asshole to yourself and believe in your craft’

 

In the last five years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?

  • Meditation and fasting have been really meaningful in helping me balance and calibrate myself and my position in the universe. I try to use those two things as platforms to fortify my mental clarity and physical awareness. 

 

How would you describe your music to someone who has never heard it before?

  • Deep, emotional, melodic, and BANGIN
