We are very excited to kick start our new Q&A series with this first edition. We sat down with the newest member of the collective; SYZ for a quick interview about his musical goals and achievements so far!
If you personally were to describe your production style, how you would you go about it?
Quite experimental. Dreamy with a lot of textures and a lot of beautiful accidents. I like things sounding quite rough cut at times; especially my drums. I think the best way to describe my music would be post-wave induced G-funk.
Which of your many releases on Cream do you feel is most important to you?
Probably the Roses EP. The way I produced those tunes consecutively one after the other in a fairly short space of time made the whole thing flow really well as each tune kind of vibed off the last one. Around the time I was making it/ when it dropped it was vibes outside of the studio as well so that also added to it.
If there was one track you wish you had been the creator of, what would it be?
50 Cent - Heat - Pure gasment!
In the near future, what other Cream artists are you looking to collaborate with?
There is nothing planned at the moment. Me and Orca will definitely produce some new stuff very soon. I would like to work with any of the artists within the collective. Everyone’s very talented so whoever it was the final product would be dope no doubt!
Without giving away and super spoilers, what do we have to look forward to from yourself in the near future?
Been working with some vocalists, its taken a while but we are finally starting to get stuff recorded/finished. I’m sure that it will be released in the near future. I’ve also been working on a body of work. I’ve got around 6 near enough finished bits under my belt that I’m keeping quiet (with more to come), ready for a release at a later date. On top of this I’ve been working on my live set as well so hopefully should see that poppin’ off towards the end of the year!
