I started writing rhymes from the age of 12. That’s how I got into music. I did it for me, spent years writing and rhyming. I think it was my way of keeping in touch with music since there were no instruments at home at that time, nor computer, or technology within my reach.
Re-discovering my sound…Long time coming
I’ve been making music for ten years, and it really hasn’t gone anywhere…but I figured some things out.
Now I’m approaching a more critical way to make music, and it feels much better.
I Ain’t No Bitch (The beginning of Timmy Dangerfield; also known as ABKTRAUMA)
I saw my first murder when I was only five years old. Such is life growing up in Camden, New Jersey. Although it was a very dangerous city to grow up in, It wasn’t all bad. Yes, it was tough times; but it helped define me. It helped prepare me for two tours in Iraq. But more importantly, it helped define my music. Yet, it would only take one basketball game to introduce my music to the world.
Sweet Young Solitude
by Dim Kouchnir
I guess to start things off I didn’t really have this direct introduction to music as blatantly most people get it (I think). You could say I kinda got ushered into it slowly during the period of 14 to 20ish.
Around my mid-teens, I started writing poetry in my native language which is Flemish (same as dutch), and in that same period, I also got into dancing, particularly in the styles hip-hop, poppin’, and bboying. Being a dancer and mainly educating myself in the field choreography, I got in contact with a lot of the musical influences that show themselves in my work today.
I think of people like: Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Kanye West, Sholomo, Clams Casino; and the list goes on…
I remember my dance tutor having this immense iTunes library, and after a lot nagging, I got him to put it on my blackberry tablet (hahaha). Having that period in my life gave me a passion for music in general, And helped me to develop my taste.
Awkward noodle with a dream
by Goman Hira
I’m honestly just an awkward noodle that spends way too much time watching anime, 3d modeling, and making music. I feel that the arts are the best way for me to fully show myself to the world since words often fail me.
“Look at what you’ve done”
You ever catch yourself listening to your favorite musician, band, or whatever it is you spend the most time on with headphones in. Only to be interrupted by an advertisment every single song change? Umm, yeah, that is the level I am trying to get you to help me reach.
Everything Led To This…
Let’s support real Hip-Hop again…
“Everything led to this…” & rightfully so! It is a beautiful thing where you look and realize the growth that has been made.
Self Discovery thru Musicianship
I have yet to come across any profession that is as rewarding, fulfilling, and promising as well as depressing & anxiety-inducing as being a musician. It’s peaks & valleys to it, but there’s more beauty in it than most people will ever know.
