5 QUESTIONS with MILKMAN
What inspires you and motivates you?
Being the sound of a new generation. Unlike rock, unlike alternative, country, funk…etc, this dance movement is uniquely ours. That is so cool to me, and I want to be a influencing member to shape this genre for generations to come. We are in it’s infancy and everyday I wake up excited to hit the studio and see what boundaries can be pushed/
What’s the best part about what you do?
I get to make music that people love to listen and dance to. Whenever I get a message from a fan, or speak with them after a show and they tell me how much they love my music, that is the best part of what I do. I get to have an impact on peoples lives while doing exactly what I want to be doing with mine. That’s extremely rare in this world and I treasure the fact that I get to do it everyday.
What new projects are you working on?
My new EP Reboot comes out this Tuesday July 29th. There are 5 featured tracks on that EP which will also be a part of my album that will come out later this year. That is where all of my time and focus goes right now, everyday in the studio working with amazing singers and songwriters trying to make the best dance album ever!
Does a specific state of mind or mood generate your best work?
It completely depends. For more uplifting and fun tracks, obviously it’s better to be in a generally happy/good mood. But there are many times when you are trying to write a more emotional and deeper song that requires you to kind of get in the zone and, well, not be depressed or anything, but kind of reflect on your feelings and get as deep as you can within yourself. Those are some of the best studio sessions because the music comes straight from the heart.
What can we expect from you in the near future?
Well, as I mentioned earlier, loads of new music coming out this year. In a more general sense though, I think people will see a more mainstream side to Milkman that hasn’t surfaced since my old school mashup days. I like to go through cycles with my music, never standing in one place, and honestly right now I am really into more pop-infused dance music. Dance music, for the most part, is supposed to be fun and worry free. To me, that kind of lends itself to the popier side of all music. As someone who is never content with where they are, you can rest assured knowing that I will always be pushing the Milkman boundaries in one way or another!
