FUZZ SPOTLIGHT: REI INFINITI
Updated: May 3, 2021
F: Hei Rei! Thank for talkin' to us. Let's start with your musical genesis. Any moments stick out in your early years for what got you into music in the first place?
R: I started singing in my church choir when i was 4 and ever since then, my passion for music has only only seemed to blossom. no matter what path i choose, it’s the one thing i can’t seem to shake as i grow and mature. i guess the love is real then, huh? lol
"no matter what path i choose, it’s the one thing i can’t seem to shake as i grow and mature"
F: It's so true, once you have music flow through your body, your fate is sealed! What's interesting our music is such a great gauge of how we grow and mature. And our recordings are our stakes in the ground for who we are at each moment. Cool, so you got started in Church, and then were there any artists that you looked up to that inspired you to start making your own music? R: as i grow, my musical influences always change. when i was younger, a lot of r&b and gospel artists kept me going. through high school was mostly jazz and classical composers and hip-hop/r&b/rap artists like tyler, kendrick, frank. now i’m influenced by so many different things like amy winehouse, hiatus kaiyote, no doubt..
F: Awesome, yes I definitely hear those influences in the song you have up on your profile. Getting some Thundercat too (big fan). Did you record this song yourself?
R: ) oh yeah thundercat is insane! I made it with some friends. my friend Amanda Yang did the main vocals at the beginning and my other friend CatCor did some vocal work on it as well. im actually working on some new music with Ovrlord who’s a bassist and is performing on the track! I know thundercat is like his biggest inspiration rn 😂
"hoping to really expand my network, collaborate as much as possible, and just exploring music to its full potential (:"
F: I knew it!!! Ya it sounds really cool, I like the progression. You do a nice job connecting what could be 3 different songs into one great piece. Not easy! So what's the plan now? Are you recording a whole album? Is this just a pet project or are you hitting the circuit?
R: Thank you very much! im extremely proud of all the work everyone put into it. and the plan as of now is definitely to keep creating music, perform much more, and have this year be a big launch for my creative endeavors. Hoping to really expand my network, collaborate as much as possible, and just exploring music to its full potential (:
