Welcome to BuzzMusic EM$o! We truly connected with the message on Your latest single, "Dark Rooms" How did it feel to open up about your struggles with addiction and depression in your music?

Hey BuzzMusic, Thank you very much for having me. Music is the only way how I express myself. I am just another man like many others who doesn't talk about his past with other people; I would rather do that with music, which helps in moments of crisis. I still struggle with depression, but at least I managed to fight off my alcohol and drug addiction; I have been clean for over a year now.

Can you tell us more about the person who inspired "Dark Rooms" and how they helped you turn your life around?

"Dark Rooms" was inspired by my girlfriend. Before we started dating, I was an absolute mess. Lonely, lost and wasted are the three things that described me best after I left street life for good. I often found myself with my brain and a bottle of alcohol in "Dark Rooms," trying to fight off my demons. She was like a silver cross for the vampire inside me; the addiction had just vanished. I had no more desire for alcohol with her presence; I just wanted joy and happiness.

You've spoken before about how music became a therapy for you. What role does music play in your life, and how has it helped you cope with difficult times?

Music still is my form of therapy. Creating music helps me forget all my problems and gives me a moment of silence in the storm inside my head.

What have been some of the biggest challenges you've faced as an artist, and how have you overcome them?

My heaviest challenge in the beginning, was the correct pronunciation of my lyrics in English; I live in Switzerland, a German-speaking country with a weird accent. Rapping and singing in English without people hearing my accent was a serious challenge as I first had to learn to speak English fluently and then get rid of my german accent.

Then I had serious difficulties mixing the songs correctly so my music Engineer Slade Templeton could master them and make them sound good. This eventually faded as I took some classes in mixing with the Music Engineer Streaky. The challenge I'm currently facing is having the right exposure to the right people to grow my fanbase. But slowly, the fanbase is growing as I have gained over 20 Followers in the last 2 weeks and had some placements in big Spotify Playlists.

Looking to the future, what can fans expect from you regarding new music or upcoming projects?

They can expect more music, music videos, merch, and content, and I'm currently looking for places to perform as well. The next song is coming out on the 10th of march 2023, and it will talk about my first date with my girlfriend in a dancehall type of beat.
