Welcome to BuzzMusic, Gun Boi Kaz, and XINCLAIR. We're head over heels for the punchy and groovy atmosphere you've delivered within your recent single, "SWITCH." What inspired you to write this dominant single?
We originally wrote the track while Kaz was out in Arizona visiting me. This was actually the first song I ever freestyle rather than wrote, usually I like to sit down and write line by line going over every little detail but since we were at a BNB with a whole different kinda vibe from how I usually make music, I thought why not switch it up for once, haha.
Could you expand on your collaboration with XINCLAIR when creating the single "SWITCH?" Why did you want to make a trip down to Arizona to collaborate?
We planned the trip to shoot 2 music videos for our tracks "goodbye" & "numb iii" so while we were together we made as much music as we could in order to get more collab songs ready for the future "SWITCH" being one of them.
What aspects of the creative process did XINCLAIR manage when creating "SWITCH?" Did he help create the song's production or only the songwriting?
I wanted "SWITCH" to be a straight club banger. Both I & Kaz usually make more slow / sad-oriented music but since this was the first time we actually met in person it was nothing but good energy so making a hype song just made sense.
Could you tell us more about your label, The Afterparty Project? What type of music or artists will you feature?
The Afterparty Project is a great label/network. They really focus on giving artists the opportunity to reach a whole new audience using their platform. I got nothing but love for everyone working over there!
What's next for you?
I'm gonna be releasing a new song "I been" on July 16th so been on the lookout for that!
