Taking a different approach in this social media age by choosing not to show his face, REGI is all about making his music the focus. Having just released his debut single Something For Me, REGI chats to us about how this single came about, his inspirations and dream collabs.
Where in the world are you right now?
Currently in Los Angeles working on new music.
What made you want to create music?
The art form of music and the way you’re able to express yourself in your own unique way. It’s an extension of your emotions, like telling someone something without actually telling them, ya know what I mean?
When you were in school what did you want to be when you “grew up”?
I never actually knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, all i knew was that i was destined to be great.
How are you feeling about the release of your debut single Something For Me?
I’m excited to finally have stuff out, it’s been a minute in the works!
How did Something For Me come about?
I was honestly in the studio with my producer, playing around with some beats and next minute Something For Me was created. It was real organic.
Who did you work with? Where did you record it?
I recorded this a while ago with my team in our studio back in Australia.
What are some artists that inspire you or influence your sound?
Definitely The Weeknd, Bryson, DVSN. I draw influence from anything I connect with.
Who are some people you would love to collaborate with?
I’d always be down to collab with PARTYNEXTDOOR haha but honestly if I fuck with your sound let’s make some magic!
In your photos your face remains a mystery. What’s the reason behind this?
Within this day and age right now too many people judge on your image, like if you sing R&B or rap you should look a certain way or wear certain brands. These days there are a lot of clout chasers, which focus too much on how you look like and they forget about the music. I want to build my fanbase around the music I’m choosing to put out, not around what I look like or what brands I wear.
What’s next for you in 2019?
You’ll have to wait and see.
