What a dominant and powerhouse performance you've brought with your latest single, "93 CELSIUS." What inspired you to write this authoritative and empowering tune?
This piece came about in an interesting and frustrating time. It felt as though I couldn’t catch a break from what was going on in my personal and professional life. Those pressures always seem to create the purest of expressions though… there’s no time to acknowledge anything except the raw emotion that presents itself at the moment.
Who produced the hefty sonic arrangements within "93 CELSIUS"? What sort of sonic atmosphere and vibe were you aiming to achieve?
This piece is produced by Epik the Dawn, I came across the production online and immediately knew it was special. Something about the synth lead filling out the sub-bass stuck out and felt very urgent. The rapid tempo of the snare only reinforced that choice to make the overall narrative match that urgency.
My main focus was to refract the feeling of pressure I felt from what I was going through at the time. Remaining disciplined in your career and personal life can get hard to balance at times. That coupled with it being a relentlessly hot summer day, everything came together.
What was your songwriting process like for "93 CELSIUS"? What did you want your audience to take away from your heated and empowering bars?
I usually start off with an overarching concept pulled down from where the production takes me, beginning with the chorus. “I have my hand over the button” felt like a perfect way to begin weaving the metaphor of “My Impact Is In My Hands.” Digging deeper into this metaphor pushed me to be bolder in showcasing why I believe I deserve to be in the rooms I find myself in. This record is me “claiming my space” as a unique emerging Artist with something to prove.
How does "93 CELSIUS" contrast your previous single, "SOLAR FLARE"? Would you say that these two songs share more differences than similarities or vice versa?
From my perspective, both records have their own way of handling and presenting pivotal moments in time. Whether it be in discovery, frustration, confidence, or fear. They’re both very primal, in that the sounds themselves are built to induce motion, but they are very human in the way that it puts you into the driver's seat of the story's POV. I think both 93 CELSIUS & SOLAR FLARE are two separate sides of the same coin/shape.
What's next for you?
The focus now is refining the narrative of “Who is GREGNWMN?” to the world. Opening up is the next step that I believe will unlock the next level of my creative process as well. Taking these records on the road & sharing the experiences in each record will add to the context of whet to go from here. Taking action has been the most holistic way of holding on to peace in my life.
