THE GET BUZZZED ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Stooki Sound

Q1. How old were you when you first started making music? When did it become serious?

I was 14 when i started making music and Luke was 14 also. I started off producing UK Grime and Dubstep and Luke started off with Hip Hop, which is why our sound evolved into what it is today. Things got serious around the time Ball So Hard dropped, which was in 2012. From there we realised that we really enjoyed producing together and took it further.

Q2. Whether it’s a remix or an original, what is the first step you take when writing a track?

I don't really have a process when it comes to music. I just let it flow and let my creativity and inspiration do its thing. I don't believe in forcing music because it becomes very calculated and formulaic and loses its fluidity/realness. That said, once i know what i want to make i tend to start off with percussion or drums, because i have the most fun with those elements. 

Q3. What is one of the best moments you've had so far in your career?

Touring with Keys N Krates this year was definitely a highlight of our career so far. We've been long time admirers of their music, their talent and the way they conduct themselves so when they asked us to support them on their Midnite Mass bus tour it was an instant yes. It was an amazing tour and we got to play to alot of markets that we haven't been able to go to yet, and generate alot of new supporters. The KnK guys looked after us very well and we became a family on and off the bus. 

Q4. What is another BUZZZworthy artist that inspires you and why?

I'd have to say Mura Masa. I've been talking to Mura now for a while and watched his progression to become one of the most forward thinking and unique artists there is right now, and we have nothing but respect for him. One of my personal favs of his is Lotus Eater. Such an amazing track, check him out

Q5. Of all of your releases, which one is your favorite and why?

I am in love with one of our new tracks from our upcoming EP, but i'll remain tight lipped on that one for now ;) Uppers with Mr.Carmack would have to be our favourite release so far that is out at the moment. The reason i chose Uppers is because it hits so hard, and it goes off anywhere its played. Its really exciting and is a real 'screwface' track. Check it out

THE GET BUZZZED ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: VenessaMichaels

Listen while your reading! Check out her brand new remix Alex Newell - This Aint Over (VenessaMichaels Remix)

Q1. How old were you when you first started making music? When did it become serious?

 Music was always a huge part of my life. My Mom  put me in piano lessons at 3 y/o, so I was introduced to playing music at a really young age.  Then when I was around 12 I picked up the guitar and started taking classical guitar lessons.  Soon after, I got my old macbook which had GarageBand on it.  I started chopping things up and making "remixes" and then a friend gifted me Logic.  Then things got more real for me.  I never put music down, it was always a hobby for me.  My Mom encouraged me to try DJing and I fell in love.  In between learning on records and spinning on turntables, I was also messing around with Ableton making beats and discovering my sound. I never stopped, and I never wanted to so it was always serious for me. 

Q2. Whether it’s a remix or an original, what is the first step you take when writing a track? 

 Honestly depends on the day!  Remixes are different than originals, because you have the stems and the a capella written for you.  So you just create around the pieces that are already put down for you.  For originals, it's a different story.  Sometimes I'll start with the chords, sometimes I'll start with a beat, or sometimes I'll literally just start with a hook.  Most of the time, I start with a progression and then write to it with an artist who is going to be featured on the track.  Collaborating is a big part of making music IMO.  I really believe music is a vibe thing, so being able to share that with someone else is really important in creating and bringing a song to life.   

Q3. What is one of the best moments you've had so far in your career?

 There's been a lot of incredible moments recently, but so far releasing the music has been really special to me. Being able to share it with the world and having different countries spread the music is wild.  The moments when people are actually listening to what you've created is a beautiful thing.  When I get snapchats and videos of fans and friends listening, dancing and smiling...that hits me the most.

Q4. What is another BUZZZworthy artist that inspires you and why?

The people that inspire me the most are my friends and creatives that I'm surrounded by.  One of my favorites is my good friend, Jonah Christian, he is an eye opening producer who makes beats in a crazy way more like J-Dilla styles.  Him and I have actually made a sample pack together where we just hit random things with all kinds of weird objects so the sounds are unique and special.  Here's one of his tunes:

Q5. Of all of your releases, which one is your favorite and why?

I have to go back in time a year and pick through the 2090 EP.  All of these are so close to my heart, because it really brought everything to life.  Working with Kiana and Tay and making these originals was some of the best times.  Out of these...I'm gonna have to say....this is really hard, but it's in between Touch Me ft. Kiana Lede and I Need That ft. Tay Jasper.  It depends on the mood, but if I wanna feel good and free and jam the f*ck out I'm gonna go with Touch Me.

THE GET BUZZZED ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: PAT LOK

Q1. How old were you when you first started making music? When did it become serious?

I started piano when I was little, then I got bored of classical music and quit. Making music became more serious to me after winning this remix competition for DFA Records with my friend Cyclist, it sort of showed me that people might actually like what I wrote! 

Q2. Whether it’s a remix or an original what is the first step you take when writing a track?

Usually chords, for me songs are all about finding or writing interesting, inspiring chords. A lot of the biggest hits use the same chord progressions though so maybe that's what's holding me back from a #1!

Q3. What is one of the best moments so far in your musical journey?

Whenever you accomplish your vision for a song, that's a satisfying moment that stays with you. Externally, hearing my music get played on BBC Radio 1 - as someone who came up obsessed with the Essential Mix it's a very surreal and fulfilling feeling.

Q4. What is another BUZZZworthy artist that inspires you and why?

I'm a big fan of Jarreau Vandal, a Dutch producer with Soulection who mixes hip hop and house influences with trap, grime and even Brazilian soul. I remixed a single of his recently, Nobody Else, but the original was really so unique it was a treat to try and do it justice.

Q5. Of all of your releases, which one is your favorite and why?

My favorite is so far is the next one I'll be dropping :) But since that's not out yet... Probably this one. Surprised?
