Tell us about yourself.

I would describe myself as a weird, Swedish kid that thinks way too much. I kind of live in my own little world I guess.

Tell us about yourself as an artist.

I’m really trying to make something that feels new and exciting. I want to push the envelope and mess with what people expect from me.

.

.

.

Tell us the reason you decided to go into music.

I never really decided to go into music, it was just always there. I started playing my first instrument when I was seven I think. I started to really work on writing and producing when I was like 15 though.

Tell us about the story behind your song.

The song is an identity crisis I suppose. Just in the moment thoughts of panic and confusion. “Used To” refers to how things “used to be”. I think a lot of people have this tendency of romanticizing the past, always looking back and thinking everything was better before.

Tell us about the recording and production of the song.

Originally it was two completely different songs but I couldn’t find a way to finish either of them so I ended up fusing them into this weird mix. Now I can’t really imagine either of them without the other. Also, the lyrics just came so naturally as soon as I put the songs together. This was probably one of the songs me and my producer Magnus spent the most time working on, that first verse went unfinished for the longest time.

Tell us the artists you will like to collaborate with in the future.

My dream collaboration would be Aphex Twin. We would make some weird music for sure. Plus he seems like a really cool guy. Hit me up if you’re reading this man!

.

Tell us the names of blogs, radio or TV stations that have supported you so far.

Since this is my debut and I’m super-independent at the moment it’s kind of an uphill battle right now haha. But Paul over at hiapop.com premiered the track which was super dope! And Eternity Network featured the song on their playlist Sunday Selects. Really excited about that.

Tell us the kind of work you like to do apart from music.

I’m a big movie buff so I watch a lot of movies. Making a movie is a dream I’ve had since I watched Star Wars for the first time. Can’t even remember how old I was but I was super young. I like photography a lot too; I have a couple of nice analog cameras I use.

Tell us more about your music career and experience so far.

I’ve spent the last six years in my room, just making music. I haven’t released anything and only a handful of people have heard it. So you’re witnessing the beginning right here I guess! Hopefully I’ll have a lot more to say if you’d ask me again in a couple of years.

.

.

.

Tell us your favourite artistes and the reason for choosing them.

Korn is an all-time favourite. I’ve been a diehard fan of them since I was 11. I’ve always gravitated towards anything that celebrates being weird and different. And they didn’t really go with the normal metal “sound”. There is a lot of hip hop vibes in there, it was really ahead of its time. Aphex Twin is a favourite too. I love him because he does whatever he feels like, you gotta respect that. He really has that punk-mentality of “I’ll do whatever I want, just try and stop me.” I could go on for hours talking about great artists so I’ll just stop myself right there.

.

.

.

Tell us your definition of a hit song.

Well I guess the definition of a hit song could be anything really? A hit song is whatever people listen to the most at the time. That’s what’s great about music, anything could be a hit. The sound of popular music is always changing.

.

.

.

Tell us your happiest moment in your music career.

Releasing this song is probably the happiest moment. You don’t get a lot of super happy moments spending six years in your room making music.

.

.

.

Tell us about the genre of your music.

I honestly don’t know what my genre is. I’ve spent so much time trying not to think in terms of genres. I really want to make something that deserves its own genre. But I guess it’s hip hop since I’m rapping.

.

.

.

Tell us the names of music producers you will prefer for music production and state your reasons.

Magnus Stenbäcken at Riverking Productions! Had such a great time working with him on this record, plus he’s really smart. If I’d have to choose someone else I’ll say Rick Rubin. He’s really good at getting the best out of artists, he’s able to draw something fresh and new out of everyone he works with.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret behind success in life.

Don’t take life too seriously. Nothing is a big deal if you think about it so just enjoy yourself. I have to remind myself of this all the time.

.

.

.

Tell us your view on signing to a major label and “Doing It Yourself”.

I think it all depends on the opportunity. I’m really big on keeping control of the creative side of everything and I know that can be hard when you’re signing to a major label. For me it’s a lot more about the energy and drive rather than money or the cool-factor of signing to a major label.

.

.

.

Tell us the challenges you are facing as a musician.

The music business today is just a bunch of noise, it’s really hard to get through to people and get their attention. And when you finally get their attention you have to keep them interested! I’ll just have to wait and see what happens I guess.

Give a piece of advice to your fans.

Listen to Whooda Thunk and make all your friends listen to it as well, they’ll love it!
