The lyrics were highly relatable but catchy as well, creating a nice whimsical wittiness to the style. The production of “ERROR_404” was layered with various elements and dimensions. Not only did it had melodic components that created nice lush energy for the song, the drums and bass made the single pop as a banger.

Welcome to BuzzMusic Reggie, thank you for taking the time to chat with us! Tell us, how did you get your start in music?
No problem! Thanks for having me. To be honest with you, I can't really say that I had a "start" to music, but what I will say is that the idea of making music came to mind at a very curious state in my life. At the time, I started to have a lot of questions about life and the struggles or circumstances we at times face, I had questions about God, questions about how he works amidst all of it, but I could never find a way to translate that into conversations to where I felt it would be received wholeheartedly and that's when I started to write and record music.
What is your creative process like? How do you find your inspiration when creating new music?
So, I'm kind of a busybody lol. When it comes to creating I'll sometimes sit and sift through 20-30 beats until something clicks and inspires me to write. A lot of times I'll have topics that I want to address but for whatever reason, I never know (at times) how I want to attack that topic. Idk how it is for other creatives, but music tends to emote something in me. Whether it be joy, sadness, pain, anger (almost never), etc., I feel inspired to speak on something.
We really enjoyed your single “ERROR-404”. What is the meaning behind it?
Oh, thanks! That's one of my favorites right now. Anyone who uses the web has at one point or time come across a page that doesn't exist. You may have typed the wrong website OR the right one, but you find yourself with a web error 404 "page not found" screen. Whether you're a musician, painter, actor/actress, writer, athlete, etc., you deal with a lot of comparisons. However, if you make it a goal for yourself to compete with yourself for the betterment of yourself, comparisons do not exist, competition does not exist, needing approval does not exist; the person your peers or society is trying to match you up against cannot be found because you are your only match and rival.
What would you like your new fans to know about you and your music?
If they've come this far, I think they should know that I am a Christian. I feel the need to share this first and foremost because I think in today's society, Christians have a bad reputation and the constructs made upon Christianity are a bit slighted. Having said that, I want to change that perspective. I'm only one being, but when people can relate to what's being said in your music, I think barriers start to break down. I talk about real life, the ups and downs we can face (even the ones we face more than others at times), but also the convictions and truths I hold to and live by.
Thank you for talking with us Reggie! What are you looking forward to the most out of this year and what can we expect to hear from you?
It's been a pleasure. If anything, I'm just looking forward to creating it. I have a lot of music in store for 2020 and not only because it's a new year, new decade, but simply because I've been honing in on what exactly I wanted to do coming out of 2019. The preparation has been really cool. All the life lessons and trials I faced up until now has been worthwhile, and it birthed Error_404 and it birthed a lot of my recent work as well too. All that to say, you can look forward to the sequel to 'Proceed With Caution' as well as a few visuals from me this year. I hope you can hear growth as well as some maturity and that you would follow me in the process.
