by the partae

Congratulations on the release of ‘No Retaliation, Part 1: The Solo’s.’ Can you share with us the emotions and thoughts that went into creating this album, especially considering it’s your most personal project to date?

Creating ‘No Retaliation, Part 1: The Solo’s’ was an incredibly emotional journey for me. It’s undoubtedly my most personal project yet, as it delves into themes of loss, change, and inner turmoil. Every track on the album is a reflection of the rollercoaster of emotions I experienced during this period of my life.

The album is part of a trilogy, including ‘The Collabs’ and ‘The Orchestra of Eternity.’ How do these three albums collectively pay tribute to your late father and creative partner, and how did the idea of connecting them through the word ‘DAD’ in their artwork come about?

The trilogy of albums, including ‘The Collabs’ and ‘The Orchestra of Eternity,’ is a tribute to both my father, my creative partner. We shared a deep bond over music, and I wanted these albums to honor his memory. The idea of connecting them through the word ‘DAD’ came about as a way to symbolize the impact he had on my life and my art.

The Solo’s album contains 12 brand new tracks, including ‘Won’t Bow Down.’ Can you walk us through the creative process behind this single and how it sets the tone for the entire album?

‘Won’t Bow Down’ is a particularly special track for me. It sets the tone for the entire album with its powerful energy and defiant lyrics. The creative process behind this single was intense, as I poured my heart and soul into every aspect of its production. It’s a declaration of strength and resilience in the face of adversity.

In your message to fans, you mentioned facing challenges like leaving your booking agency and music label, along with personal losses. How did these hardships influence your music, and what role did your fans play in helping you overcome these challenges?

Facing challenges like leaving my booking agency and music label, as well as personal losses, deeply influenced my music. These hardships forced me to confront my emotions and channel them into my art. My fans played a crucial role in helping me through these tough times, providing unwavering support and encouragement.

The loss of your father in 2021 is a significant part of your journey with this project. How did this experience impact the direction and themes of your music in the ‘No Retaliation’ trilogy?

The loss of my father in 2021 had a profound impact on the direction and themes of the ‘No Retaliation’ trilogy. His passing forced me to confront my own mortality and reevaluate my priorities in life. His memory is woven throughout the albums, serving as both inspiration and catharsis.

‘No Retaliation’ is described as a story of loss, uncertainty, change, and mental challenges, but also of strength, determination, and perseverance. How did the process of producing this album help you personally in dealing with your emotions and finding closure?

Producing ‘No Retaliation’ was a deeply cathartic process for me. It allowed me to confront and process my emotions in a creative way, ultimately leading to a sense of closure and healing. Through the music, I was able to find strength and resilience in the face of adversity.

You’ve mentioned that life is too short to stay in the past and that you don’t have time to be hateful. How did this mindset shape the narrative of the album, and what message do you hope listeners take away from your story?

My mindset of focusing on the present and spreading positivity heavily influenced the narrative of the album. I hope listeners take away a message of resilience, determination, and hope from my story. Life is too short to dwell on negativity, and I want my music to inspire others to keep pushing forward, no matter the obstacles they may face.

Aside from the albums, you’ve been working on a new live-act called ‘Radical Redemption & his Orchestra of Eternity.’ Can you tell us more about the inspiration behind this unique concept and what fans can expect from this live experience?

‘Radical Redemption & his Orchestra of Eternity’ is a new live-act that combines elements of classical music with hard dance. The inspiration behind this concept came from my desire to push the boundaries of live performance and create a truly unique experience for my fans. Expect a fusion of intense energy, emotional depth, and breathtaking visuals.

Looking ahead, you mentioned your 7th solo album in the works, planned for 2024/2025. Can you provide any insights into what we can expect from this upcoming album and how it might differ from your previous works?
