Hi guys, congrats on the new release. For those who don’t know, how long have you been making music, and how did you meet?
Brutu Music: I started in 2003, first I was rapping and in need for beats I started producing dancehall and reggaeton. I met with Remy in a producer group I was part of.
What does the Journey Ahead EP represent for you?
It’s a part of life and journey that we all go through, falling and getting up and keep the focus.
What are the main values you want to bring to the music world?
That we shouldn’t take life to serious and we should enjoy more and worry less.
Will there be a tour to promote the new music, and if so, what will the stage show be like – and where are you hoping to play?
So far we don’t have a tour plant due to our distances (South Africa and Holland) but there are quiet some befriend djs waiting to blast the tracks from the ep
What’s the songwriting process like when starting from scratch?
Most of the time Remy has a concept that he sends over and I would ad to it till it’s a full track.
What’s the song Wordless People all about?
It’s about people that we all know that ain’t worthy of your time, tears or energy.
What’s the music scene like in the Netherlands right now?
There is a lot of good music coming from Netherlands now a days, fresh cats with tight tracks, and in South Africa (Remy).
How will you be celebrating the release of the EP on October 25th?
There will be a Halloween party on the 26th , two of my associates will be playing that day and we will be blasting the EP.
Is there anything else we should know?
I hope everybody will enjoy the EP as much as we did working on it.
