Mitch: Who would you say has been a big help on our journey but doesn’t get recognition for it?

\r\n

Frenzy: On my journey I would say one of my brothers Kodjo has been a massive help for getting the sound right and taking time with it, I would say Figures has been a key factor behind the energies channeled into the songs, but generally the my mandem/family are the most important factor of this journey.

\r\n

M: How would you describe your sound using 3 words?

\r\n

F: Soulful, experimental, tenacious.

\r\n

M: What daily struggles do you face being a musician?

\r\n

F: Daily struggles is TIMING! I feel I’m always waiting for some sort of email from someone and often the waiting around kills the creativity and the spirits. I believe good spirits are the pivotal point in the journey so I try and maintain these energies on a daily basis.

M: Apart from music what do you enjoy doing?

\r\n

F: I enjoy carrying out extensive research on various artist. From spoken word to violinist, often this research shows me different perspectives of how you can own your craft. I’m also big on sports, sports gives me the discipline and the mentality to always push and be persistent.Reading soothes my mind and introduces me to new words and ideas, the brain is the most powerful tool and it’s important to give it some sort of exercise.

\r\n

M: What is the biggest life lesson doing music has taught you?

\r\n

F: Music is glamorised and everyone wants to be a star but truthfully it takes alot of work, alot of sacrifices, instead of going to that jump off round the corner you have to stay in and write. Instead of buying the latest trainer you gotta pay for studio. After you have finished your day time job you have got your night time job, underground artist have to juggle the two.Because you have to be in so many places you end up not being anywhere, minimal time is spent with family and friends

\r\n

M: If you make any 2 artist in the world and one producer to feature on a record with you who would it be?

\r\n

F: If I could get any two artist in the world to feature it would be Donnie trumpet and Tory Lanez. But to be honest there’s so many artist out there that I love. Donnie trumpet because of his experimental approach when it comes to musical production and tory lanez because he has so much depth, range and textures

\r\n

 M: What are your ambitions?

\r\n

F: My ambitions as an artist is to grow, grow my sound and grow my base, remember why I’m doing music and why I started doing music. 

\r\n

M: What are you currently working on?

\r\n

F: I’m currently working on a small project which I want out before the end of summer. I do have a sense of urgency but I find that I’m doing 5 drafts of the same song. The longer it takes me the better the music
