Audible

Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

Dan Arki aka Audible born April 12th, 1989 in Los Angeles, California. I was raised in Gardena as an only child with an entrepreneur dad who bounced between here and France a lot, while my mom was the heart of my west coast family working in the French wine industry the majority of my life.

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

I began my journey into music back in 2009 when my mother passed away from cancer. I came up with my name Audible after wanting to discard my old b-boy name and make a name that represented my past, present and future. I wanted a one-word name that defined me, Audible. Audi for short. I guess my background would come from my love of hip-hop since I am at early age as well as break dancing for 7 years and writing poetry all throughout high school and college. (Shout out to Ludacris/Luda and Eminem/Em for the name inspiration!)

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

I’d say my sound is ‘Feel Good Conscious Hip-Hop’. I write all my lyrics from personal experiences, usually telling a story or conveying a message. The concept behind the “No work on Monday/I don’t want to work on Monday” came from the fact that I just got suspended from my job that Friday because my co-worker and friend at the time decided to snitch on me to upper management about my frustration with company. Instead of sinking to her level and sharing some of her demons with the company I had worked for, I handled it my way and forever immortalized her in this song. The gospel vibe gives it a positive spin on a negative situation that happened.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

The biggest thing is to just continue moving forward through all trials and tribulations. I’ve had plenty of setbacks but I love making music and that’s why I continue to share it with the world. When people tell me or message me saying that they liked a song I made or my part on something, it’s the most rewarding feeling more than money.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

For those people who know my music know I work with T. Chizz a lot, both of us founding Planet Nine Records. We happened to be freestyling over different beats on a late Saturday night, then the ‘Sunday Vibes’ beat came on and I instantly just came up with the whole chorus. He dug the whole vibe of the song and delivered a solid verse so I couldn’t say no haha.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

I’ve been making music for about 8 years now. I used to be a part of a group called ‘Planet Nine of the Lost Elements’ or P9LE for short. We disbanded in 2016 due to creative differences and that’s when I made my push as a solo artist while also creating the independent label with T. Chizz. My goal is to perform my music around the world.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

I guess wanting to share my story and experiences with others. The different emotions music can give are so powerful I love it.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

To be honest I haven’t had much recognition for my music. I had my first solo release “Through The Wires” (Apr. 2016), did a few features throughout that year, then did two collaborating projects with T. Chizz which we submitted to the majority of streaming services. The first an album called “Classwork” (Nov. 2016) and the other an EP called “Pacific Coast Highway” (May 2017).

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send message to them via this platform.

 A Spotify playlist called “Sunday Select” by Eternity Network added Sunday Vibes to their playlist on Monday Oct 30th 2017. Also Teck from “The Word is Bond” blog shared the song yesterday Nov. 2nd 2017.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

The best method I like is to be able to have the audio recorder on and then playing the beat for the first time out loud. Thus giving me the opportunity to capture the first feelings, energies, and emotions from the song. Sometimes a chorus is made, a dope verse is free styled and captured, or just the cadence/ideas are formed.

Name five biggest artists that you like.

Too hard, too many. I’ll name artists that aren’t big enough yet: Boogie (Westside Boogie), Joyner Lucas, J.I.D., Kyle and Kota The Friend.

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so.

Was fortunate to have some songs produced by SUBshockers, a DJ/Drummer Duo from Hawthorne, CA. I really would love to work with my idols Nas, Kanye, ATCQ, and Kid Cudi if possible.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

Honestly “Sunday Vibes” is kind of like the best of both. Happy I didn’t have to work anymore at a place I didn’t enjoy anymore, sad it was a friend that made it all happen to begin with. That’s why it’s so real and honest throughout the song.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

I’d like to pay off the home we just bought and then buy the dream house for the family. I’d also want to invest in different charities and organization while possibly funding my own. One of those being replanting trees in different cities and counties.
