Emotionull & Kizzeret had an idea, everything begins with an idea. The plan was to meet up and make as much music as we possibly could from scratch, start to finish. It didn’t take long for this plan to come to reality. With some simple googling we decided that a Greyhound would be our best bet. That night I researched prices for a ride to Tucson, to my surprise a round trip was only around $25. We had to do it, there was no other option, I had two days off coming up and the world was aligning perfectly. So I bought the ticket. The decision was made, was there any planning? Of course not. It’s Kizzeret and I, what the fuck do you expect?
Planning? No fucking way
I mean we did have a little plan laid out, it went a little something like this.
- Audio Interface
- Drawing Supplies (This was never on the list I just brought it.)
With the minimum amount of stuff with me and the clothes on my ass, I set off taking a Lyft early as fuck in the morning to the Greyhound station in which the lady told me I didn’t have to be there so early and I could of gone to a different one way later in the day, but you know, it’s good to wake up early right? My goal was to get as much footage as possible through out the two days and hope in hope it could be used. My second goal was to record as much music as possible. I think I achieved half of that goal. I got a decent amount of footage but nothing I’d like to feel accomplished with.
Luckily, we have a good editor, who saved us with that.
The music process was very different, and not in a bad way, I’ve never recorded music from scratch in a setting like this. It was surprisingly much easier than recording music alone at home, something about working with Kizzeret sparked something in my creative self. I’m very glad to be able to work so well with him as well as be such good friends. I had a lot more confidence when recording my verses, usually I feel very self conscious even alone at home recording. Funny enough we even recorded the last song “Free” in a Walmart parking lot. It was a really good time to be honest and I can’t wait to do it again.
Below, I present you “Desert Dwellers”
I think I would label it as Experimental Alternative Hip-Hop. Maybe with a dash of Punk. So I hope you enjoy it. You can find it on all platforms, I’ll have some options linked below. Let me know what you think of it!
