Hey James! Thanks for giving us a chance to talk with you about "Igazi Panzi". Where did your inspiration stem from in order to curate this instrumental track?

Thx you for checking out my song. So my inspiration came from going to Ghana to do a gig with Lauryn Hill and in Spain and a few months later with the Screaming Headless Torsos I would go out to museums, market places, and nightlife; experiencing the culture. 

As an artist who's involved in a multitude of projects, how do you organize your inspirations and creative ideologies accordingly?

I feel it’s all relative everything helps you grow. It is important to keep each individual artist music true to themselves and remember it’s not about you. Unless it’s your music and even then it’s still not about you it’s about touching people and making them feel. And speaking of being true "Igazi Panzi" is part of a full-length project that I will be releasing this later this year and in the early spring I will be releasing a tribute record to the legendary great drummer/vocalist Buddy Miles.

Out of the various musical aspects, you involve yourself in, such as drumming, producing, writing/recording, which component of the music scene do you prefer over the others?

I can’t really say. It’s all really producing a product in the moment.  I love all aspects both good and bad.  One hat when working on my projects which involve playing drums, singing, writing and producing but another hat when I am the musical director or just playing drums for others. And yet another hat if I am producing, writing and/or collaborating with others.

You're an artist who heavily collaborates with others to execute your produced tracks! How do you find the collaboration process with other artists, and how did you find it particularly for "Igazi Panzi"? "Igazi Panzi" flowed very well and had an eclectic projected ambiance. What was the overall environment you were looking to create with this song?

The environment is for people to dance. “Igazi Panzi” in particular for black people, African people, Latin people from every continent to celebrate our mark on building & creating the foundations the world.
