Thanks to the internet, our exposure to new artists is not dependent on recorded deals and radio hits. Some artists of all ages have been able to venture out on social media, release music on their own and start their careers in their bedrooms.
This is especially true for young artists. By following a group of artists on forums such as SoundCloud and Spotify, Gen Z is completely changing the way we share and acquire music.
And, of course, the music they make is unlike anything we have ever heard, as these new artists combine genres of music, take inspiration from the past and create something of their own.
One of those young, talented musicians is Nateyy.
Nathan (Nateyy) White is a 20-year-old artist who has been performing at BandLab for over 6 years with more than 250+ plus songs. While trying to find ways to expand, he has put his entire city sharp with a new wave of music.
When he was in 9th grade, Nav dropped his debut album. He sat on the edge of his bed and told himself he was going to make a name for himself.
Nateyy’s important role is to be a leader and to bring out the best in people. Serving as the school’s basketball captain and president, young Nateyy had his best friend Riq push all of them to a high school with 40k streams spread across all platforms.
You make music that expresses your emotions, even those that you do not know yourself. His dreamy sound is inspired by beautiful tunes and songs, and his words are removed from his deepest feelings of joy, sorrow, love and more.
Nateyy’s music video “Smoking Phase” will be released on Vevo this month.
The Internet, of course, is crucial to the success of music — it is not only necessary for the distribution of content, but the roots of the genre are trapped in the technological ability to function as the most accessible time machine. There is a special kind of freedom in the field of music that is very appealing in our day: Its emphasis on the dance floor and the exhilarating and liberating freedom that attracts young people to the age of hell and solitude. Younger artists like Nateyy behind this new genre also mimic contemporary artists and DJs: redesigning old sounds to meet a modern, nuanced palette. That is the essence of a growing genre: a talented artist makes music for himself, on his own.
