What's Theomatic Listening To?
Take a quick glimpse into the current vibe, inspiration, and story of Totem Star artists.
Theo, what song do you currently have on repeat and why do you like it?
Lately I’ve been listening to Kali Uchis’ new album, "Isolation." Melodically it sounds amazing and there's a ton of good vibes in the music. I’ve also been listening to J Cole’s "KOD." He spits a lot of real shit I can relate to.
How would you describe your music preference in general? What qualities make a song truly great?
My music preference is just anything with soul. I don't confine myself to a single genre, both as a listener and a artist. If I can feel the energy and I can vibe to it, then its good music
How does the music you listen to affect the music you write?
The music I listen to affects what I write because I get inspired by it. For example, growing up I listened to artists like the Blue Scholars, Ice Cube, Tupac, A Tribe called quest, Nas, and more. I learned thru all of them that through music you can really express yourself. Not only could you teach others about your experiences , but you could be vulnerable and speak out on sensitive topics, such as mental health, to let others know that it is okay to have conversations about those things. I learned a lot of ways expressing about mental through artists like Tupac, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar, and Joey Badass. I learned about social injustice through artists like the Blue Scholars, Ice Cube, NWA, Public Enemy, and KRS 1.
