Even though it's a demo this one still really shines. Love those swirling saxes in the final chorus.

    Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
    My music is always evolving, you have to be adaptable if you have plans to stay relevant for years and years. I always try to keep my influences living in my music (even though you can't exactly tell where I'm drawing the inspiration from or what artist I'm channelling at the time). I like to keep an emphasis on slick wordplay and delivery no matter what I'm making, so you can always find that in my music, even though it's much more than that.
     
    What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
    The usual things that inspire other creatives. Things I've experienced, other music, the way a certain design looks, the way different colours look next to each other, the way a certain soundscape is. Even the things that are "trending" - but sort of stepping back from that and analysing why something is popular and pushing people to unlock what we all have to begin with- that they can create greatness too.
     
    What can punters expect from your live show?
    A little bit of everything, I make the music for people to listen to what I'm saying, so I let it speak for itself on stage. I'll change my hype levels according to the songs being played, so everyone can go through the experience with me. I think if people go to watch me, they'll be happy they did haha.
     
    What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
    Anything that comes out of Sensible J's mouth.
     
    What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
    "Liona" - Nasty Mars. Check it here!
     
    What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
    "Take U 2 Da Moviez" - Bangz 
     
    You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
    "Ignore" - Alison Wonderland with Baro
     
    What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
    haha It was actually one 90'sRD (our collective if you don't know) was playing at. It was a crazy night! We supported Remi at the Northcote Social. It went down! Ended up on stage with Rem', Hau, N'fa, One Sixth and Baro for a live cypher! 1/6 is one of my favourite rappers too so that was an amazing night for me.
     
    Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.
    My friends mainly. Baro, Charlie Threads, Yobi Masenqo, Mose`, Te Waere, KushDaddySlavens, Nasty Mars, Sol' Manic. We push each other to be the best we can be. 
     
    What are your plans for the rest of 2015?
    After Splendour and supporting Baro's tour, I'll be commencing my next project, probably an EP. I'm keen to just keep building.
