Welcome to BuzzMusic, The MookMann, and congratulations on the release of your abstract single, “Stalking Shadows.” Where did the inspiration for a song of this caliber come from?
My friend Jake and I really like jazz and Lofi in addition to my “trap jazz” style we thought it would be very unique to blend together the two styles and give the public a new sound.
What moments get you into your most artistic phases when you create your music?
I usually feel creative when I’m in a bad or depressed mood I never feel complete when I’m happy because I know sadness is around the corner so I look forward to those moments so I can express how I truly feel.
You truly have a great dynamic with Jake Jurant. How did you come to collaborate with him and what was the experience like?
I was listening to music on Spotify and came across one of his masterpieces and looked him up on Instagram to tell him how wonderful his music is and he checked out my sound and understood from the very start, where I was going with “trap jazz” and working with him to make this track has been a wonderful experience we both knew it has to be unique and stands out so I told him where I was going with the track and he liked it and that’s when we made this hit.
How important is it for you to bring in your own personal life experiences into the music that you put forth?
The experiences have taught me to listen and learn from people who already went through it and I tend to express and explain the answers through my songs so hopefully, others won’t make the same mistakes
2020 has been a very challenging year for everyone. What has been keeping you inspired to create music? What advice can you give another artist who's finding it difficult to do so?
What has kept me inspired in 2020 is not quitting usually when the tough gets going people just bail but I say it’s going to get hard regardless of why not keep going and get a reward out of it. The best advice to give is don’t listen to other artists' music if you get unmotivated fast instead enjoy what you’re creating and keep having fun eventually a door will open you to the correct path in the meantime enjoy yourself don’t stress about what you can’t control.
