RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW LONDON RAPPER AARON NERO
Hiya Aaron thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.
What made you decide that music is a thing for you?
Found that creating music allowed me to express how I feel and get my thoughts across in a way that connects with people.
Introduce us to you and your musical history.
Started doing music during my school days, which was always on and off as finding a balance between education and music was always difficult; however, after college, I was able to take a break and focus more on writing and recording. What started out as 30-second freestyles soon turned into tracks and then videos, growing my audience gradually.
The music industry is the hardest industry in the world to progress in, how do you feel you are doing?
I feel I am doing the best I can with the options and tools I have available. There will always be room for growth and improvement but so far I feel I am doing well.
We set up RGM USA and many other countries in the world to share music with America and the UK, good idea?
This is a good idea as this shines a light on the talent that previously may not have been found before, giving insight into both sides of music.
Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories?
Let’s share the love, what artists are doing really well in London?
Skepta, Chip,Wretch 32
What advice would you give other artists starting out?
Stay consistent and find a lane that works for you. If you are constantly making comparisons with yourself and others, you will never truly progress.
Did you buy anything you don’t need during the pandemic?
No, all purchases were necessary.
What was the worst experience on stage?
Haven’t had any worst experiences on stage.
Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about.
Introvert more than extrovert
If you had to describe your music to an alien how would you describe it?
I’d describe it as passionate feelings.
What makes you stand out as an artist?
I hear you have new music, what can you tell us about it.
New single is called ‘Memory Lane, audio can be found on Spotify, Deezer and the video can be found on GRM daily.
Talk me through the thought process of the new tune.
When it comes to creating music, I find that paying attention to the beat first allows me to gather a general vibe for the type of song I’m trying to create, in turn giving me ideas for what to write regarding certain themes.
What was the recording process like?
The recording was over the course of multiple sessions, doing take after take until the perfect was one found.
What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tune?
I’d say the biggest learning curve would be trying to create something that’s better than my past work.
Would you change anything now it’s finished?
I wouldn’t change anything about the song.
Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?
