Check out the new song from Chasen Dreams – Throwin 100′s
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I’m from Oak Park, California which is about forty five minutes north of Los Angeles. I started doing music 3 years ago after being invited to the studio by a friend of the family who is a producer. I got to sit in on a few sessions with some of the artists he was working with and decided to jump into a cypher they had going on one day at the studio. Everyone in the room was impressed with what they heard. They told me I had serious talent and needed to get serious about my music. From that day forward, I’ve been on the grind 24-7. I have released 4 mixtapes and I am currently working on my first EP.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
This song is off of my recently released 4th mixtape entitled “The Nicest You Never Heard.” The mixtape has already been downloaded over 13,000 times and has 33,000 views. Check it out here.
I am currently promoting the first of five planned singles I have for this project. This track is called “Throwin 100′s.” It’s a club banger strictly intended to be played at high volumes to get large crowds moving.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
The hardest challenge about the industry is breaking into the industry. If I have learned anything in three years it’s that the music business is about who you know. You could be unknown and produce nothing but hits, but until that “one person” hears you, you are still just another artist trying to make it. The key is to never give up and always believe in what you are doing.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
My biggest set back was my first meeting I ever had at Universal records. I went in thinking that if I finally got the call to come in for a meeting it was about to go down. I went in and they tore apart everything I had done, they told me they liked my sound, but if I was serious I needed to get the whole package together and call them when I was really ready. It shook me. I was speechless for a good 20 minutes. Then I realized that they told me what I needed to do, to get where I wanted to be. It was a set back but it also motivated me more than anything to step my game up.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
I feel like artists these days try and copy whatever sound they hear that is popular for the moment. The most important thing to me is to make my own music that represents me. I wanna be in my own lane, therefore when people listen they get to know who I am. What’s catchy and trendy can change tomorrow and it normally does. When people connect with you and can vibe with you and your being yourself, it takes that relationship with the fans to a whole new level because you are genuine.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Continue to do you, but let it be known. It’s my time to shine.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Anytime I do a new track and want to get it out. I always post it to my Facebook page and to my soundcloud page. I am also currently in the process of having my own website constructed that will have links to all of my material.
