DISCOVER NEW MUSIC EVERYDAY



1. Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?

808Riot: ‘Rookie Of The Year’ is a collaboration between me (808Riot) being the producer and Bri-C being the featured vocal artist. After Bri-C being on my debut album ‘No Structure’ we decided to release a single together to follow up after our song ‘Ammonia’.


2. What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?

808Riot: I would say my music is very diverse with lots of different production styles. I don’t just stick to one specific genre, I like to expand my creativity and do things differently from other producers. I don’t like to follow the rules of a typical music producer.


3. Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?

808Riot: Releasing my album this year in January was probably my best moment. I got to collaborate with lots of different artists and work with their different styles and talents. Along with the release was a lot of exposure too which landed me on multiple hip-hop/rap publications.


4. How do you balance your music with other obligations — family, friends, or work?

808Riot: I’m still in school so I’m treating the music as my work. The best thing about being independent and working for myself is that I can choose to work whenever I want, I don’t have a set schedule. I always am able to make time for the other people in my life such as my girlfriend, friends etc.


5. What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?

808Riot: Don’t follow the rules, be creative. A lot of the people coming up nowadays all seem the same and seem to almost follow a set criteria. Almost similar to the SoundCloud rapper wave. Being unique is what makes you stand out the most.


6. If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?

808Riot: I want to thank everyone for all the support on all my music and thank you to all the people who were supporting me since day one and are still here.


7. What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?

808Riot: Right now I’m focusing on releasing a lot of singles, about two songs per month, but I am starting to put another album together so look out for that.


OUR BEST INTERVIEW WITH THE TALENTED 808RIOT

 



1.Tell us about your new EP? And what’s the story behind it? 


Rami: Break My Heart, I Riot was a very important EP to me. Mostly because it was an EP where I changed my sound completely. Talked about things I usually did not talk about in some songs. I tried to make every song unique in a different way tbh. Every song on the EP gives a specific vibe I think. The whole thing has a very SPACE feel to it. I wanted it to be like that. I wanted to challenge myself on this project to create some shit that would not be able to be replicated again... Whether I managed that or not is the beauty behind it. It’s up to others to critique.



2.What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it? 


Rami: I think my music is unique because of the way I deliver it. I think my voice is the most unique part because yet you can hear emotion in my songs, most people call my voice “calming”.. “lazy” yet energetic. I give a blend of both worlds. I try my best to genre bend as well in my songs.



3.Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of? 


Rami: My best moment definitely is yet to come, but I am just enjoying every moment step by step. I try not to look in the future too much, I just focus on what I am doing now, and live from that!



4.How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work? 


Rami: The balance is very important but achievable. I dont hide what I do. I am a music artist and thats what I want people to know about me. Most people close to me understand that & support it.



5.What advice would you give to aspiring musicians? 


Rami: You will never make it trying to please everybody. You will create your worst work that way... Instead record whatever is real to you. Record your feelings and you will succeed in this shit. I stopped caring about making music for others to enjoy... I started making music that I felt I needed to make, in order to comfort myself... and that is what made me feel like I was making the best creations.



6.If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be? 


Rami: I love that many of you support me at my early stages. You guys really help me out with the whole music world. I appreciate you.



7.What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?


Rami: I am currently focusing on new singles to put out. Especially that I am now going by my birth name, Rami Tawfik, I think it’s time I really give my best foot forward, and stay consistent with these singles. As well as content. This is a fresh restart for me.

OUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH RAMI TAWFIK

 


1.Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it? 


You already know is a song about unity and the death of an egotistical species. It’s about human beings learning to accept each other and all our shapes and sizes. An awareness of our neighbors and responsibility to each other and our planet. 



2.What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it? 


As metal is widely understood as an aggressive form of music, and wildly expected to even be violent, or sometimes evil, religious, political, or confrontational, Sepsiss presents hard rock and metal music as a community engine. Far too often we see segregation and isolation in heavy music. It’s almost strangely encouraged in metal culture to be alone Wolfe, suffer through, and be angry, confused, or chaotic. With Sepsiss music, we connect deeper with a sense of belonging and a direct pathway to the band for fans that other bands just don’t offer. We have made it a staple to squash the larger-than-life rock personas and role-play personality. We offer our fans a real and conscious way to experience the music and the band. Mainstream and A-list bands refuse to allow their fans into their lives the way we do. They want their fans to believe the band is bigger than they are. With Sepsiss , the fans are bigger than we are. They are the stars. We are the soundtrack to their pain, love, and experience. Our fans take the biggest stage. We put the spotlight on them instead of ourselves. 



3.Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of? 


Living a sober life and teaching people about healing and educating people on the love and power of culture and art. 



4.How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?


Sepsiss is our work. It is our family and we are friends. We balanced all this by having sharp and realistic attitudes, behaviors, and awareness of each other’s goals and love for one another. 



5.If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be? 


Mind your business, be kind and rewind. It’s the doing that does.

 


6.What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?


 We would love to play planet earth when even it opens.


Listen to them on Spotify.

OUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH SEPSISS


Addict & Rewind, is our best discovery of the weekend, a true musical gift between music and sound experimentation  

Addict takes us on an engaging and appealing music journey on his fantastic single “Love, Hate”. featuring Rewind. We admire his haunting universe where the flawless production perfectly creates an appealing vibe throughout.


Addict is a new breed of independent music artist who believes music is made to teleport the listener into the unknown.


The production quality is solid, without detracting from the artistic cred of the performances. There are some pretty groovin’ rhythmic interludes, with elements of alternative pop and lofi . I don’t keep up as much with lofi music in the valley like I used to, but this is definitely one of the better up-and-coming addictive pieces. 


Press play right now, you won’t regret it:



LOVE,HATE : A BANGER BY ADDICT FEATURING REWIND





1. Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?

My latest song release is titled “Penny Proud”. The title draws parallels between the Disney Channel show “The Proud Family”, specifically the main character, Penny, who I identify with the most. In the song, I rap about trying to balance following my dreams with trying to make my family proud. Navigating the early stages of my rap career has been difficult and convincing “traditional” family members that this is the right path for me has been a challenging conversation. But in the end, I find that no matter what decision I make my family is always there to help and support. This song is featured on Amazon’s “Break through Hip-Hop” & Audiomack’s “DMV Hometown Heroes”. We just released the video this week.


2. What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?


My music gives you that nostalgic hip-hop feel… that feeling that been missing from the newer music out. The gritty, bar riddled, soulfulness that I bring breeds new life into today’s music-making me feel unique.


3. Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?

Signing my first distribution deal has been my favorite moment so far.


4. How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?

I’m still learning this and haven’t gotten a good grasp on the balance. When I’m around family and friends I always feel like I should be working, and I know this isn’t good, so I am actively trying to change.


5. What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?

Be yourself, stay consistent and enjoy the journey.


6. If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?

I want to thank each and every one of you for being a supporter, because without you I wouldn’t be able to grow.


7. What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?

I’m dropping a new song & video on May 14th , so stay tuned.
