If you have been a day one listener of Day 1 Radio then you already know that we cherish bringing you stories that you haven't heard before. We are continuing that tradition with our latest interview with L.A.'s own, artist/producer Blxst. While people on the West Coast are already hip, he's poised to breakthrough nationally any moment now. Get to know the next big thing out of the West!
3:00 - Blxst talks about how he got introduced to Hip Hop music through his grandfather singing A Tribe Called Quest songs to him when he was little. From there he says his uncle (who rapped) encouraged him to step up his vocabulary by reading the dictionary. 5:45 - Blxst shares why and how he's been able to build such a dedicated fanbase so fast and early in his career. He also talks about how his latest project "No Love Lost" came together and his choice to have no features and handle the production. He also talks about directing his own videos and how he learned how to film videos from being a skater. 11:40 - Blxst talks about how the feedback from his string of singles is what encouraged him to put out a full body of work. He also explains the science behind the spelling of his name, label (Evgle pronounced "eagle") and the branding behind it. 17:00 - Blxst has a unique partnership with Red Bull Records that will be backing his music. Here he talks about the importance of working with a company that truly understand his vision as an artist. 19:00 - Blxst admits that he does feel a little bit of pressure from respected figures and music lovers already crowning him as the next Nate Dogg or Ty Dolla $ign. He also talks about he prefers to produce for himself even though he is becoming an in-demand producer.
