Tell us about yourself as an artist.
Randy’s influences are quite eclectic, from west coast hip-hop to Kid Cudi, Thundercat, Flying Lotus and most of the Low End Theory artists; also lots of reggae, African folklore, jazz and funk. Enrique’s influences are very wide as he listens to every genre of music except country. Lots of rock, hip-hop, electronic and Latin music are on his playlists.

Tell us about the genre of your music.
Our music can be described as a mix of Pop, Hip Hop and Reggaeton, as we tend to use sounds, samples and techniques from the Electronic & Urban World. We didn’t sample any songs, everything is original, either performed with an instrument or programmed.

Tell us about the story behind your song.
“Paradise” is a song about going away to a place of freedom from the daily stress and routines with the one you love and just enjoy life.

Tell us the challenges you are facing as a musician.
One of the biggest challenges out there is getting heard, there’s so much new music and so many artists out there that are standing out from the crowd so it is tough.

Tell us about the recording and production of the song.
The song started as a random jam/beat in Maschine and then moved to Logic for full production and arrangement. The music was written & produced by Enrique. Once the track was built, we recorded Randy’s vocals on top of the beat while experimenting with vocal delivery and lyrics. Then mixing and mastering.

We have been featured on EatSleepEDM, different Spotify Playlists and SoundCloud Blogs. We are looking to deliver and show our music to as many people as possible. We are still on the early stages of our marketing campaign.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.
It sounds typical but it would be a mix of the love for writing and making music and the need to express feelings and ideas through art.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.
Hmmm, let’s ask Pharell how to do that.

.

.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.
Practice and learn as much as you can. In today’s world, it’s not enough to learn and play an instrument or music, you have to be really good at it and also learn about sound engineering if you want to take advantage of all the great tools out there for music production. This also gives you the freedom of not having to depend on someone else to record you and you learn about DAWs, plugins, etc.

.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.
We are a new act.

.

.

.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.
Randy likes to write lyrics on the go; he loops the beat and starts freestyling and writing down lyrics and ideas on his phone or note pad. He just flows and flows and writes until he says he has something good to share. Once that’s good, he jumps into the booth and usually in 1 or 2 takes he has most of the stuff down.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.
I think the saddest day memory has been removed by the brain since I can’t think of anything to be the saddest day. One of the happiest was hearing our song being played on KROQ, the main rock station in Los Angeles and been introduced on the Kevin & Dean show.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.
Probably hire a financial advisor to help make that million grow and be able to have a bigger impact in the future using the earnings for philanthropy since there are so many social problems in this world that need a solution.
