Where are you currently based?


Gold Coast, Australia.

How did you first start playing music?


I had just left school, my birthday wasn’t to far off and it had been the first time my mother could afford to get me something nice, I asked for a home studio set up, I bought Logic Pro X and started to teach myself music. At first I’d just narrate random videos, I wanted to learn expression and how to get comfortable listening to my own voice, and how to use projection, eventually I recorded my first rap.

What’s been happening recently and how has your Covid experience been so far?


My life never stops, there’s always something crazy going on, so COVID was just another small bump in the road, I’ve just been concentrating on being a better family man, and prioritising things better, having that clarity of knowing I’m getting shit done, has helped me curate my music better.

Your new single ‘Playboy Type’ is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting?


It was a time I was feeling a peak in my alter ego, it had been on my mind for quite sometime to make a track where I could perform live and just flip the show upside down, with bass melody and specific lyrics, that were influenced by an overdose I had.

How did you go about writing Playboy Type?


I got in a more controlled but similar head space of the night I overdosed, and tried to tune into the thoughts I was having so I could bring the sound I was hearing to life.

Where and when did you record/produce and who with?


I recorded PLAYBOY TYPE in my apartment at the Meriton, Damien Alter produced the beat, I mixed and mastered the project as a whole.

What programs/instruments did you use?


Logic Pro X

How did the concept for the music video come about?


The creative direction of the music video was based around the trip. I told my videographer I wanted to recreate the scene of where it happen, and that his edits were to create a visual experience similar to what I was seeing that night, and he did exactly that.

Where and when did you film and who did you work with?


I filmed it in the lounge room of my apartment, I worked with Micha O’Brien.

What did you find most challenging and rewarding during the creation of the video?


The challenging part was the budget we were working off, the most rewarding part was everybody was on the same page, and super comfortable with one another, everybody respected what I was trying to do and we executed it as group.

Who are you listening to at the moment?


At the moment I’m listening to Bryson Tiller, 21 Savage, Flatbush Zombies and Schoolboy Q the most.

What do you like to do away from music?


I just signed a modelling contract so I’ve been focusing on getting fitter and learning more about the fashion world, and designing my own clothing pieces etc.. I like to do a lot of reading books, cooking, watching documentaries and having sex. As all 5 of these things help me make better music.

What’s planned for the remainder of 2020 going into 2021?


To finish putting together my first Mixtape, finish my merch designs and start to put together a schedule for the new year.

Favourite food and place to hangout?


Favourite food at the moment is bao. Favourite place to hang out is my girls bed.
