We are thrilled to introduce you to our best discovery this weekend: the incredible Moxie Michaels. The independent artist who started at a very young age eventually went on to create a drag persona, with a charismatic personality.
On Monkeypox Feat. Whisper Sixx, Moxie Michaels breaks the music’s boundaries with a unique signature between dark hip-hop, haunting and wild flow that perfectly completes the intense electronic-infused production.
The track is threatening and heavy trip and the flows cut to the bone and the verse are pointed, sharp, and relevant. Dive into the experience now and read our conversation with Moxie Michaels below:
Tell us who you are and how you started to make music!
I’m Moxie! I started making music the summer before my first year of high school. I went to a performing arts school my freshman year. I was pretty popular on MySpace already and SoundCloud under my “boy” persona, I even started writing for other artists… Once I discovered drag, I returned to it brand new and began cultivating a sound for myself and taking it a little seriously even though my songs don’t sound serious all the time! Lol
What inspires you to write music?
I’m inspired by culture itself really. That’s how Moxie began. I was in a way making fun of the influencer era, and how anyone can just be “famous” rather. I think Reality TV stars like the Real housewives, Tila Tequila, Brooke Hogan, Heidi Montag when they make music it’s so iconic So I was always inspired by that.
What is your creative process?
My creative process is when I have a idea I immediately go into my notes and write it down. Then, I meet with producers or find beats and I create a song.
Can you describe your latest release?
My latest release MonkeyPox is sort of a joke (even though this outbreak is not) and raising awareness for it. Like what they did with We Are The World in the 80s. My friend Whisper and I both know you have to strike while the iron is hot in this industry so that’s what we did and I’m glad it’s catching on even if it’s in a comical way.
What do you plan for the future?
What I plan for the future is to release my upcoming EP by the end of this year. I want to go on Tour. I’ve been in talks to be a opening act for some independent artists so we’ll see how that goes! Definitely want to take my music way more seriously and shoot a video for some songs on the upcoming EP.
