An interview with Bassman75

Know Me Better:

  1. How did you get your initial start in music?

Since my brother is musician, I used to listen to his songs playing in the radio back in my native country Angola. But I only got initial to do music when we moved to the US. I followed in love with hip-hop, I remember living in Las Vegas and spent hours and hours freestyling and writing songs with other local rappers.

  1. What would be your ultimate aim in the industry?

Good question, I guess…, to be recognized as good songwriter & record producer by providing the music industry a new ways to cross genre music, what I call crossover music.

  1. How long have you been writing your own music?

As long I can remember. I love to write songs, no matter the genre of music. I wrote songs for many local and international artistes in the industry. Not only that, I also translate songs from Portuguese to English, French to Spanish and vice-versa due to the fact that I speak fluent 6 different languages.

  1. Who are your top three influences and why?

I would say: Bob Marley, Michael Jackson and 2Pac.

Bob Marley – because I share the same view of one love, he was more than a singer and songwriter, he was a great visionary. Michael Jackson – because he was a such multi-talented individual. Just to him being able to sing, dance and put up an awesome show, that’s something that has always inspired me. Pac – because he was not just a rapper, he was a civil rights activist who happened to be a rapper, but the general public did not understand his goal and motivation due to the negative gangster images Hip-Hop got caught-up with.

  1. Is there anything you would like people to know about your current release?

Hell yeah, can I say that? Lol… Jamaican Grind is scheduled to be released October 20th, 2015. It’s the lead single from my upcoming EP “Fast Life”. The single is part of my crossover music project. I have worked with a team in Atlanta, GA for this track. It’s a great pop record with stunning vocal coordination, I would call it a radio and club banger!

  1. Where are you based and what’s your local scene like? Any favourite venues?

I’m based in Switzerland. My local scene is great. My team and I do more club venues at moment but things are looking better for us. Havana Club.

  1. Who else can you recommend from your local scene for people to have a listen to?

For sure, check out Forgiato Blow, Guarana Goal and Brian Nightingale that’s my guy. Crossover music baby we’re coming!
