JL The KidD is an artist who strives to create music that truly stands for who he is. Since his last release "Not a God," it was thought that it brought too dark of a mood to his music and is now showing off the lighter side of his music in his new release "Konundrums" with Tenno Max and Sire to show us all who JL The KidD is. "Konundrums" opens up with an instantly memorable groove that holds its own with the help of some spicy guitar licks, a melodically moving bass that feels fluid, and an organic drum kit. It perfectly sets the tone for JL The KidD to lay down some ever so smooth vocals.
While listening to "Konundrums" we couldn't help but be taken to a tropical beach, everyone that is around is there to have a good time, and that's precisely what JL The KidD sets out to do, getting some extra vibes from both Tenno Max and Sire allows for additional textures that almost catch you off guard but still feel like they are on the same oceanfront. "Konundrums" is a joyful party, to say the least, from start to end it is radiating good vibes that cannot get enough of. We cannot wait to hear what is coming next in the JL The KidD's journey of being a musical artist. You can vibe out to “Konundrums” here.
Welcome back to BuzzMusic JL The KidD! Your latest release “Konundrums” is definitely a different vibe than “Not a God”, do you feel this tune feels fresher and more like you? How do you think you have grown as an artist between both releases? The song definitely feels fresher than anything I’ve done in the past, and I really just cut loose with this one. I honestly got really bad anxiety, and I think my nervousness in the booth and on stage show in my voice. I’m proud to say that that didn’t happen this time around. We’re loving the dynamic performances between you, Tenno Max, and Sire. How did you come up with the idea to have additional performers on this tune? How did you choose them? Well I’ve always wanted more variety in my music, to be honest. When I got the beat and heard Sire’s voice, I immediately got the name for the song. A conundrum, for those of us like me too lazy to look up new words, means an issue that goes both way for lack of better words. I decided to link with my homie Tenno max cuz he always reliable to show up in the booth, and I knew the duality vibes could only get pulled off with his melodic flow. The vibe created feels like we are on a tropical beach, was this something you had in mind during the songwriting or did this come after the song was written? Which element was written first? I like that but honestly we didn’t intend to put you on a tropical beach. We were going for those duality vibes, and the beach artwork is based on a cartoon I enjoy called the steven universe. It explores a lot of mature themes and tackles them really well, and I think that’s what I was doing in the song. After we had everything recorded, that’s what made me choose that art design. Now that “Konundrums” is out, are there any new styles that you want to branch out and try for newer releases? Is there anything you’ve been meaning to do in your music or anyone you’d like to collaborate with? Yes there are definitely quite a few styles I’m itching to try out in the near future. There are also a couple of guys in my current city I mean to work with. $pice, and I just got clashing corona schedules and I haven’t gotten around to asking DirtyBlak yet. Rest assured though, I’m mobilizing and the collaborations are coming. What else can fans expect for 2020?
I have an EP dropping at the end of May and personally, I’m nervous. I stepped outta my box for this one and did it on my own, no features. I think I found an engineer that can keep up with my pace though, so hopefully this upcoming EP will not be the last. I have a roadmap built, and I’m really close to getting to the part I’m most excited about.
