Interview with IMNXTJULY
What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today?
There wasn’t anything specific that got me into music I just had a natural love for it since I was younger, but if I didn’t get into it I think I would still be chasing either making the nba or nfl!
What do you like to do when you are not playing music and how does that influence your creativity?
I like to be around my family and just spend time with them! Other than that I like to be outside or traveling! Being with my family kinda gives my brain a rest from having to be creative, I always have music on my mind like what’s the next song I’m gonna make or what’s the next show I’m gonna do so that’s nice when I can get a break, but it helps with my creativity and influence because when I get back to making music my mind feels more fresh! Going outside and traveling helps just because of the scenery!
How long have you been making music?
When I was around 13/14 I started making music! I started as a dj then switched to producing, and finally when I turned 17 I decided to strictly focus on becoming an artist and switched from sports to music!
Where are you based and how did that influence your music?
I’m in Las Vegas, Nevada, but honestly the only thing that’s influenced me has been the people and not really the city itself!
Tell me about your most memorable shows, if you haven’t played live what is your vision for a live show?
My most memorable would have to be my very first one! It was definitely a fun but scary experience having to put myself on stage and entertain but I got it done! Having all of my family and friends there was what really was memorable though, just to be able to share that moment with them was amazing!
What is your favorite venue to play at, and do you have any places you want to play that you have not already?
Last Friday at 18 bin has been my go to for a few months, it’s a lot of fun and there’s a lot of love at those events! For a place I want to play I’d have to say Brooklyn bowl!
If you could play any show with any lineup, who would be on the ticket?
Besides me it would be Oam Cam, Blackbear, Post Malone, and Yung pinch!
What is some advice that you would give to someone who is just getting into making music and some advice that you would give to your younger self?
Don’t be so hard on yourself and trust the process! That would be my advice to both people that are getting into music and my younger self! I feel like people always try to look for fast perfection, myself included, but in reality it’s all a process and you just have to trust yourself through it all! You’re allowed to have discipline towards what you are doing but don’t be so harsh, you’re exactly where you need to be!
Of your songs which one means the most to you and why?
I have a song that’s unreleased called letter from slime that’s means a lot to me! It’s a song I made for my step dad when he passed away, he meant a lot to me!
Which songs are your favorite to play and which get requested the most?
Two of them are out and one is unreleased! The two that are out are too slow, and save me! The unreleased one is coming out soon called caution
What is your creative process, and what inspires you to write your music?
Experiencing life! Going through my day to day and getting out of my comfort zone each day helps me create new ideas and songs, but sometimes it’s as simple as just scrolling through beats and seeing what happens!
Do you have messages that you like to get across in your music? If so please tell me about them.
I try to make music that people can relate to mainly on the topics of heartbreak or depression! I make music for the people that feel alone! I want to be one of the voices that might be able to get them through the day or just to be there for them to get there emotions out while they sing along!
Do you have any new singles, videos, or albums out that you would like to tell me and your fans about?
There isn’t any specific song or video I would want people to checkout of mine, my music is on all platforms so id say everyone should go check out the songs or videos and see which one is there personal favorite!
What are your plans for the future, and do you have anything that you want to spotlight that is coming up?
No specific plans just gonna keep working on my music and enjoying the process!
I have a new music video with Mig Caldero that’s gonna be coming out very soon so keep watch for that!
How can your fans best keep up to date with you, any socials you want people to check out?
