Welcome to BuzzMusic, Prim4l. We love the energy that you convey in "Fooling Myself." Could you please shine a light on the significance that this song holds to you?
Fooling Myself is a journey in search of the inner meaning of myself. It's a question that the dreamer asks itself, is everything around me a fantasy, a mirage of sorts, and asking whether I'm fooling Myself. It's a dilemma that a dreamer like me finds themselves in.
What do you allow to influence your signature sound? How have you found this sound evolving with your growth during the past four years?
To be perfectly honest, I am still in search of my signature sound. I don't let myself be bound by the walls of genre. I like to consider myself genre-fluid. And as I said prior I'm still in search of the signature sound, but I truly believe my signature sound would be based somewhere towards the mellow side of music, perhaps a midway junction between electronic Synth and acoustic elements, like downtempo pop.
Compared to previously released tracks, how does "Fooling Myself" share similarities and stand apart from the rest of your music catalog?
My forte in music has always been towards the chill tropical side of music. I think that is one similarity that Fooling Myself has with my previous release. The unique aspect of Fooling Myself is the fact that the song is more instrumental-oriented, where the focus on the music is more than on the vocals.
What has been your biggest takeaway from 2021?
The biggest takeaway from 2021 has to be that good things take time. You cannot strive for perfection and success overnight. It accumulates over years and years of work. Another thing that 2021 has taught, all be it not something pertaining to my career as an artist, is the importance of family and friends.
What's next for you?
To be honest, I have no idea what lies in the future for me. I am working on a couple of singles right now, hopefully, one of them will be out soon. I am trying out different genres, so there will be more genre-fluid songs out soon.
