Check out his most recent interview about his single “Live With It” below.
DMR: Congratulations on the grand release ‘Live With It’. Tell us your personal experience regarding this project.
1KSpin: Thank you and yes my personal experience regarding this project really meant a lot to me because I was going through a rough period in my life and I felt like I wasn’t being heard. I was purposely holding back a lot because I knew those feelings didn’t matter at the end of the day so that’s how I ended up writing live with it.
DMR: The track is quite emotive indeed. But your work is different than the traditional emo-rap tracks. Who did you come up with this unique style?
1KSpin: Honestly my sound really just worked itself out the more I was recording in the studio. The style of my music really just happened.
DMR: Whom do you consider as your creative influence?
1KSpin: Don’t really have a creative influence. I started making music a year ago out of nowhere so I wasn’t really into music before I started.
DMR: How did your knack for music develop?
1KSpin: It developed quickly when I saw that my music was affecting other people the way it was affecting me. I realized my music wasn’t only just for me which drove me to make a lot more music.
DMR: Your musical style offers a blend of pop, hip-hop, and alternative styles. As an alternative hip-hop artist, would you like to dabble with other genres as well?
1KSpin: Definitely, this is a great depiction of me as an artist. I also wanted to get into rock a little as well. It’s so much I want to do and will do soon.
DMR: What kind of obstacles do you find in the modern music industry in the way of your growth?
1KSpin: Music is really saturated and the same right now so I know once my music is discovered on a nationwide basis then it will have a positive impact on the industry.
