Welcome to BuzzMusic, Spitty. You've genuinely left our jaws on the floor with the release of your latest soulful single, "Deep End (feat. KAEVOX)." What inspired you to write a single about living each day like it's your last?
I think the pandemic left us all with a lot of time to re-evaluate life. Even before I always tried to live life to the fullest, but this virus really highlighted how you can go at any moment, from anything. If it's not the virus, it could be a car accident, or a random violent encounter, or some other illness. We have no guarantee to see tomorrow, so that's why I do my best to live every day like it's my last. On top of that, I touch on some really personal stories in the song - I've witnessed the death of people who were far too young, and I don't want to have any regrets if that were to happen to me. About things that I kept pushing off into the "future" that never arrives. That's why the present is a gift right?
What drew you to the melodic vocal stylings of KAEVOX to feature on your single, "Deep End (feat. KAEVOX)?" Is this your first time working together?
In late 2019 I put out an open call for singers to make a hook on my song A Better Place. Kaevox ended up being one of the chorus singers on the final version, and since then I knew he had incredible talent. When I was drafting up Deep End, Kaevox was actually the first person I thought of and he hit me back letting me know he was 100% in. What's really crazy is my studio engineer sold him a phone on Kijiji, and through their social media interactions, Kaevox found my page and followed me. You really never know where a connection might spark from.
What was your songwriting process like for "Deep End (feat. KAEVOX)?" Was this a therapeutic process, seeing that your bars are rather emotional and incredibly personal?
It took me a long time to start the writing process. I had it sitting on my to-do list for almost 2 months it felt like. I knew I wanted to start it off with that line "My cousin died when he was 25" and go into that story from there. I didn't know where I was going to take it after that, but once I finally brought myself to writing it all flowed out seamlessly. Once it was all done it definitely felt therapeutic, and even more so once I started getting the response back from listeners letting me know how much this song means to them. It's still a bit sombering to listen to personally, but it also gives me this feeling of eerie bliss. Writing about death freed me from its shackles, and I feel like I'm living a lot more at the moment.
Who created the soulful and heavy production for "Deep End (feat. KAEVOX)"? Did you have any artistic influences in mind when creating the sonics and production for this single?
I got the production done by Lucas Quinn. It's for sure inspired by artists like Drake, Saba, and even Mac Miller. It's one of those beats that fit perfectly on a late-night drive, as you just clear your mind of all your worries. I know it's summertime, and don't worry I got big hitters on the way, but I feel like songs like this are necessary too and will be appreciated by people for a long time. We also worked on the beat at certain parts like the end of the first verse and the bridge to give it a feel of being underwater, relating back to the title and the music video. Kaevox also played the piano for the last hook and outro, which I think was a beautiful transition and perfect way to close out such a powerful song.
