I was on the tail end of a ‘ta...

Year One

It's been a year since I've been active in becoming the artist I set out to be. I've been able to do a lot and it has inspired me to do even more. You all have supported me beyond measure and I want to thank you for that. It is important to note that I started this journey alone. And along the way I made friends who later turned into family, who inspire and motivate me every step of the way. Yes I know, I'm a se...

Chillfiltr

Review on Carter's "G.G.". I don't think I'll ever get sick of the D'Angelo-style Wurlitzer with a swingy boom-bap.

Britz 'n Beatz

As soon as I first heard the song 'Human' I was lost. Lost in an ocean of feelings, memories, emotions, awe. I just had to find out more about the artist behind it. Introducing Carter from Suriname.  Apart from me being an idiot and getting the time difference wrong and calling an hour too early, our interview goes smoothly and although Carter is slightly hesitant at first, he soon loosens up and I get to delve d...
