London based artist and producer Drissy Parker is proclaimed to be the King of The Late Night Vibes. We sat with the multiskilled artist and discussed things such as; His latest project “After 12”, rewarding moments in his career as an artist, and his future projects in this brief interview.
Where are you from, how old are you, and what do you consider yourself to be?
I’m from London, United Kingdom, I’m 32, and I consider myself to be a Music Producer & an Artist.. Or should I say the King of the Late Night Vibes.
What has influenced you to make music?
Life experiences are 99.9% of what influences myself making music. There are certain situations I may have gone through, or experienced, and it helps to get it off my chest or create interesting concepts. Overall I’m influenced to make music so anyone can relate to the stories I’m telling.
With your newest project “After 12” having dropped, what can you say about this project and how it compares to your previous work?
I’d say “After 12” is a project that captures the essence of late nights and what we usually associate them with. In the case of this project I explored the intimacy and toxicity in regards to relationships and the scenarios that occur in that time of the night. In comparison to my other projects it’s probably more of a mood than an experience, I went with creating a certain type of soundscape to evoke certain emotions.
What has been the most rewarding moment for you in your journey this far?
I think the most rewarding moment for me is honestly the interaction I have with my listeners, I get some messages from places in the world that I never expected my music to get to, so just knowing I’ve made music that has travelled to 54 countries this year is just everything.
Anything in the works as of now? Any future projects or collabs?
At the moment I am working on a couple of projects for other artists, I’m more in my producer bag at the moment. In terms of future projects, I usually get surges of inspiration and lock in. Right now I’m gonna just living life, doing some producing and see what that evokes from me. I am working on some music video treatments, I think when I add the visual to the sound it’s gonna make more sense what I’m about.
Outside of music, what keeps you busy?
I’m an IT professional so that occupies alot of time, but outside of that I’m an anime buff, I love the themes and life lessons they give.
Where do you see yourself this time next year?
I see myself with some solid prominent production placements under my belt, more of a bigger presence, and perhaps an album dropping.. We’ll see.
