1. Where are you from and what are your main musical influences?
I'm from the good ol 414, Milwaukee, Wi. As for my main musical influences it's kind of all over the board. I love deathcore/black metal, and that's along the lines of the music I grew up on. When it comes to the rap/hip hop scene I really fw Megan Thee Stallion, Ashnikko, Flo Mili, Princess Nokia, & Mulatto for females. And male artists is like Maxthademon, 22gz, Father, Sos Mula, Sleepy Hallow... hard shit I can relate to.
2.How long have you been building this project? Previous and how long have you worked with Vahco for new material?
Ok so the project I'm involved with I kind of actually accidentally fell into! I was not making music I just, wrote. I'd sit around n write all these raps n song n poems n do nothing with them. They'd just sit in a note book. I met Sosa Vert at a kind of renegade underground show, the first of a string of many, now known as The Revenge shows, and we just kicked it off as partners in the underground. In the beginning I was just doing other rappers hair and hosting these shows and with that came a bunch of accidental networking and finally a gang of local artists sit me down and said "we know you have a book let's see it. You have to make music." About 4 months ago I made a song in my living room, then a bed room, then a studio, and it just was like a snowball affect to here I am today working with Vahcos beats.
3.Tell us about your methods of recording and your writing process.
So I do it real ass backward. 60% of the time I'll write a whole mf song and then I'm stuck searching for someone who can listen to me spit and make a track around that OR I have to find a beat that fits my lyrics best and tweak how I phrase some things. Very seldom do I get a beat and start 100% fresh. Lately I've been forcing myself to only write a bar or few so I dont lose an idea but I tend to just get so in the zone!
I completely lost my job as a chef when this whole pandemic thing happened so it gave me nothing but copious amounts of time to create musical content. The only complaint I truly have is how ungodly bored I've been being at home 99% of the time haha.
Without giving away too much, covid permitting, except more waves from The Revenge Cult, we have a lot of shows and merch planned and we are always down to put on other local artists. I have my first solo single I'm dropping on the 26th of this month called TRENCH BARBIE and I've been writing so many other songs. 2021 is going to be filled with SO much heat.
6.in one sentence tell us who you are as an artist
I'm the alternative brat Colorados underground scene didnt know it needed; here to reign queen.

HOW LONG HAS (JU) BEEN A PROJECT?

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT THE PRODUCTION OF "BIG"
All of our music is recorded and produced in Jordan’s home studio in North Denver. Songwriting is always a collaborative effort, but most production, mixing, and mastering is done by Jordan Dinsmore.
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR A QUARANTINE LIFE IN MUSIC?
Quarantine has definitely the way that we create, share, and experience music. Live performances have always been an important part of our art, and it pains us to not be able to share that with everyone. But we are excited to start collaborating remotely and still bringing the bops to the people! Since our process has changed, our music has changed and we are eager to see it evolve .
