Interview with: Brooklyn

brooklyn

Come and meet BROOKLYN – a newcomer who’s tearing up the underground pop music scene with her out-of-sight track, ‘Cupid’. It’s only right to invite the eccentric songstress into the interview seat…so come on and get the lowdown on a star-on-the-rise.

NLM: First of all, thank you for agreeing to do an interview with NEW LEASE MUSIC.

B:It’s my pleasure, thank you for having me !

NLM: you your single ‘Cupid’ came out late last year. What’s the story behind the single and what’s the public’s reception since its release?

B: So basically the story behind it is that my best friend got cheated on by her boyfriend at the time, with one of the girls that were in our circle so it was kinda deep ! The reception has been more than I could have ever asked, the support and love for it is just crazy and I’m so grateful!

NLM: How would you describe your sound/signature to potential fans? Would you compare yourself to any of your music influences of today?

B:I don’t like to compare myself to other artists cos we’re all doing our own thing u know.. but my sound is very mixed.. the core is very R&B but then definitely has influences of Grime, Hip Hop, etc..

NLM: What mainstream (or even indie) artists you’re into at the moment?

B: Angel – I’m still hooked on his ‘Her’ EP, Yxng Bane aka captain wave lol, Nadia Rose is a boss, Big Tobz I’ve really followed his journey, oh there’s an Afro Beat act I’ve just discovered called Yemi Alade she is awesome!! JA=KI Wolfe ‘the wizard’, Lady Leshurr, Stefflon don, obvs Stormzy too many to mention the UK scene is really producing some great music right now!
NLM: If you had a choice to collaborate with just ONE mainstream artist, who would it be and why?

B: Chris breeeezy.. I’ve been a fan since day I just love his music, his voice just does summmmmin to me, I could literally marry his voice

NLM:  If you were granted three wishes to change the music industry today, what would they be?

B: I’d probably not change anything as whatever negative issues exist contribute indirectly to the organic creation of great music anyway. Sometimes politics lead people to go above and beyond and think outside the box

NLM:  So what are your plans for 2017? Any coming gigs?

B: Yessss, I got some festivals lined up which I’m super excited about I love the vibes at festivals and the vodka tonics certainly go down well.

NLM: How can potential fans make contact with you?

B:They can @ me directly on Twitter @artistbrooklyn the same for Instagram and my website is artistbrooklyn.com you’ll find all my socials on there 🙂

NLM:  Finally, any shout outs?
My family, my team Actually Music, Tenletter and seriously EVERYONE supporting big up!

Song of the Day: Big N Serious (Remix) – Coco (ft AJ Tracey & Nadia Rose)

coco big n serious

After tearing up the airwaves with the original, COCO has just dropped the remix of Big N Serious featuring Nadia Rose and AJ Tracey.

Sheffield’s hottest property recently performed an epic freestyle on Kiss FM for DJ MK & Shortee Blitz. From ticking all of the right boxes with the music tastemakers, including dropping his explosive Fire in the Booth for BBC DJ Charlie Sloth, through to performing at Notting Hill Carnival and making his debut at Ibiza Rocks last year, COCO has bypassed the route of the recent ‘new generation’ of emcees to solidly construct his own lane.

Named as one of Annie Mac’s artists to watch in 2016 in Mixmag, he’s definitely on the tip on everyone’s tongue…check out the remix to Big N Serious.
