Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
Sure! So I grew up in a suburb of Chicago and then moved to Iowa City for my high school years. Currently my family resides in Honolulu while I’m here as a full-time student at New York University in Manhattan. I’ve been producing for about 5 years now, and decided to name myself after my hometown as a reminder of the process I’ve been through to get to where I am now.
Where did the new single come from?
When I was in Honolulu over this past summer, I wrote the beat after spending way too much time outside. I was also fresh off the press with some jazz theory chops from school., and exclusively listening to electro swing. That’s why the song is simultaneously swung, jazzy and tropical.
Is there more content in the pipeline?
A lot! I have a release with Universal coming soon, as well as tracks that vary from grimy trap to pop-inspired tracks. There’s a good amount of work to be done still, but this summer means I have time to focus.
What’s on the horizon for you?
Plenty of singles out on various platforms, as well as a few cheeky bootlegs that I make in between. I have this one that I’m really excited to share, but won’t give too many details as of right now…
