Welcome to BuzzMusic, Teflon Quan! Congratulations on the release of, “BiPolar,” from your album, ‘Enjoy the Ride.’ Could you please take us into the meaning behind the title of the single and how it coincides with the lyrics you perform?
BiPolar is characterized by manic and depressive episodes. I felt it was a perfect title because the lyrics express internal thoughts & conversations I had with myself from both dynamics.
Where do you gain the most inspiration for the songs that you create?
My inspiration comes from multiple headaches & heartaches & pain that I’ve endured. ‘BiPolar’ is literally a compilation of personal conversations while reminiscing on the ups & downs of my life. I feel like my life was a roller coaster and at the same time, I realized that life is what you make it, good and bad. So the only option is to ‘Enjoy The Ride’.
Could you please take us into what it was like recording, “BiPolar,” and the rest of the musical creations found on, “Enjoy the Ride”?
Most of this project was written and recorded between 2018 & 2020. During this time I was in and out of relationships with lovers, friends and family and was struggling to find peace within myself. I spent a lot of time alone listening to music to drown out some of my thoughts. And a lot more time writing them down. I began to realize my toxic traits and decisions and was afraid of change. But I embraced that fear and turned it into this 10-song project. Writing these songs was relaxing to my soul and recording them was enlightening. I also spent a lot of time working on my vocal sounds and engineering skills with this project. It was completely mixed and mastered by me. It was fun experimenting to find a sound that I could enjoy and could be enjoyed by others.
By catering to each listener in the overall release of the album, what do you hope that your listeners will take away from this particular song?
When you listen to this song, I just want you to enjoy the ride. This is as close as you can get to literally reading my mind. Honestly, it was written as a letter to myself to remind me of times I wanted to give up and times I knew that wasn’t an option. Like an angel and devil on my shoulders, it’s a mental battle to see who would win.
What can we expect to see next from you, throughout 2021?
‘Enjoy The Ride’ was released on Jan. 1 2021 at 12:00:00 for a reason. The progress between my first project, ‘All It Takes Is Patience’, and this one only slightly shows the creative sounds I have in store for my fans. 2021 will bring more singles, more features, more projects and more progress.
