Listen to Phayze-Won here.
Welcome to BuzzMusic Phayze-Won! You have a unique artist name that’s surely an attention grabber, What’s the story behind the name?
Well growing up you hear people saying things like “he’s going through a phase” and one day I drove past a construction site and the sign said “phase 1 of construction” so I got the idea and changed the spelling of phase to Phayze and I changed the 1 to Won as in winning….this Phayze-Won! And that’s how I came up with my artist name.
What was the theme that surrounded your album “Reality Muzic?
To give an introduction of myself, life struggles & reality through my music with Reality Muzic being my first album.
What arrangements did you seek to help create this atmosphere?
I didn’t have to make arrangements to create this atmosphere because I was writing from my heart and inspired by my own personal experiences of how I viewed & felt about life at that time.
What are some of the challenges you faced in the making of both albums “Elixir Vol.1” and “Elixir Vol.2”?
I think the biggest challenges were trying to compromise with my partner on these projects & producer for both albums J Roc because we wanted to make sure that there was a real mix a real elixir of songs for everyone to enjoy.
Let’s talk about the project you’re currently working on, #IAMKING. What can we expect from this?
Well for starters I can say that you can expect the unexpected from me on this project. I will be collaborating with some big-name artists and ill be stepping out of my comfort zone mixing genres of music together. I want this album to be high energy that’ll make everyone get up and move.
Did you experiment with any new elements during the creative process of your upcoming release #IAMKING?
Yes, I’ve definitely stepped out of my realm on this one experimenting with different mixing of sounds like reggae, dancehall mixed in with hip hop. They say life begins out of your comfort zone and I'm enjoying the process, having fun with it.
