Congratulations on your landmark coverage on Spotify. What does it do?

I did an interview recently where “pioneer” was a title I had too much credit for, but now I feel like I’m unintentionally filling those shoes.

What made you start playing and making music?

Christopher Nolan Movies, Anime and lots of boredom.

Who are your musical icons?

Britney Spears, Aaliyah and Coolio.

Who are your top 3 ideal musicians to collaborate with, and why?

MIA, BIA and Sia. Besides having the greatest song title of all time, the music with them would probably sound like Japanese calligraphy. The idea of ​​this will never be lost on me.

Describe your creative process when writing new music?

It changes with every song, but it comes down to finding a melody in a silence and digging into it over and over until it sounds like something you like.

What is your favorite and least favorite part of being a musician?

Music, parties and people are my answers for both. I talk about it a lot in my last version, CRY OF STARS.
