Making his name known out of Austin, Texas, E Philz is an electronic music artist who has been making original beats and loops since the early 2000s. Just recently E Philz made his catalog of music available to the public. He blends a soulful mix of R&B, hip-hop, and jazz-inspired beats. E Philz says his music is “an audio representation of the mood he was feeling at the time it was created.” Stay on the lookout for E Philz, he has plans to release a couple of projects every year going forward.
“That Half Bounce” is featured on E Philz’s album “Mindfux Vol. 2: Another Collection”. There is a certain brightness and immediate beauty to the way the strings and the keys intertwine for this journey through rising and falling moments of melody. The title adds a level of crisp, clean air – a freshness that allows the music to breathe life and calm into the room. This particular balance of elements is immensely powerful, proving to be truly uplifting and invigorating when you turn it up loud and let it rain down around you. Things come to a rather striking finish with the melancholic sense of falling or fading. This feels like an intimate end to the journey, a quiet and gentle performance, right there in the room with you.

Welcome to BuzzMusic! It’s such a pleasure to chat with you You’ve had a really incredible year! What would you say you’re the proudest of?
I’m the proudest of being able to create something that people genuinely enjoy listening to which I made not specifically to reach any genre of touch any particular market but just as a reflection of my inner self.
How did you initially begin making music? What inspired you in the early 2000s to get started?
In the 90s-early 2000s I was a rapper. During times I couldn’t find beats that had the energy I needed, I decided to create them myself, on a friend’s drum machine and 4 track recording device. In 2000 I attended the University of Texas at El Paso, where I took Intro to commercial music & learned how to make music digitally. “Electronic” music.
“That Half Bounce” is a great new track but it seems to have a meaningful sound to it. Can you tell us more about this song in particular? Do you remember the emotions you were channeling when you created it?
I created “That Half Bounce” when reminiscing about being on tour with Dom Kennedy, Jay 305, and Polyester The Saint. Being on the road with them felt like I was with family and I wanted that West Coast, cool, laid back feel.
How do you begin crafting a new song? How do you know when it’s truly done and ready for the public?
I normally begin a new song because I already have a drum pattern, or baseline in my head. Sometimes it’s a guitar riff, or piano pattern. I play it, listen, & find sounds, whether loops, or playing new sounds, to compliment the main instrument. I know when it’s true when I put it on and my son’s head bops. Kids are brutally honest when it comes to sounds.
Thank you for talking with us once again! What can you tell us about your upcoming release?
Thank you for the opportunity! I can tell you that on this next release I didn’t use any loops or samples at all. I played every sound, every instrument & even attempted to cross genres. You’ll have to listen to find out which ones.
