How did your latest album “LW17” all come together?
Well I started working on this project right after my EP “indigo2“, so you can probably guess the first track I made for it was “no prob”. I didn’t really have a clue on what direction I wanted this to go in so I just went off whatever sounded good put together and catchy. After I made “LMK” I knew exactly how I wanted to shape this album. It’s dark/experimental but you definitely won’t expect anything specific.
Me and Dylan had a show and studio sesh wit Night Lovell so that’s how we met. Me and Aaron used to FaceTime a while back and Judge and I met thru Aaron on Twitter.
What producers and performing artists are you really messing with right now?
Production-wise Yug Gud, Dylan Brady, Diplo. My musical inspirations are M.I.A , yung lean, Robb Bank$.
What kind of messages are you trying to convey with your art?
A negative message, because everyone wants to be the good guy and act like they sending a positive message. Smh so I’ma be the bad guy and do the opposite.
What is the negative message?
Just hating everything errbody loves, promoting all the evil shit instead of the good, you feel me? Like being a bad role model.
What type of music did your family listen to when you were growing up?
They was into 90’s and 2000’s hip hop and r&b, but I didn’t like that shit. I was listening to heavy metal, Dipset, and OJ da Juiceman.
What’s the first album you remember buying?
Louder Now by Taking Back Sunday.
If you had to pick one song to be your ringtone for the rest of your life what would it be?
If they make a movie about your life what is it going to be like and who is going to play you and your friends?
Toro y Moi would be me, my friends would be played by like the niggas from Sad Boys and we would just be traveling and learning about different cultures and shit like a documentary.
