As Fridays are the most important day in the music industry, our redaction is always impatient to hear what will be out. We are often disappointed to hear that many artists sound the same.
Our discovery for this release day proves that creativity still exists. Indeed, Tripindickulous, real name Jonathon, has unveiled an incomparable single that stands out from the crowd.
His latest offering “Insecure”, effortlessly blends electronic sounds with psychedelic touches and subtle hints of rock music.
Believe us, Tripindickulous’ music has never been heard before, and this is what we expect from emerging artists:
Tripindickulous in 5 questions:
How did your start to make music?
I started doing music for myself at 17, 18. I dropped out of high school and never looked back lol. I was focused on getting a deal, going platinum, and buying my grandma a house. I wanted to change the world with my music. I had complete tunnel vision and was blind to anything else. After my first show on February 8th 2008 at the Rhythm Lounge in Long Beach, that no longer exists. I got a standing ovation, that’s when I became addicted. I was like they like me they really like me lol. The rest was history!
What inspires you to write and create?
Things that inspire me to write music are based on real-life events from my life most of the time. And if it’s not that it sometimes comes from a movie I might have watched or someone else’s story even. I draw inspiration from so many things randomly, to be honest.
Do you have a specific creative process?
I like to be alone when I create. Unless I’m working with others and we are all feeding off each others energy. Then there are those records no matter what I have to be alone to make. Sometimes I write the song, sometimes I write it in my head by going over it and over it again, then other times freestyle it, hear the pattern I like then write around it.
How would you describe your latest release “Insecure”?
The song is about the feeling of being imperfect whenever it comes to loving someone and at time myself/ourselves, but finding our own happiness anyway. It’s the first song I’ve ever done in the alternative genre. I heard the beat and the hook just came to me. I sat on the song for a while before I even thought to record it because I was still rapping lol. But I overcame my insecurities and my fears and took a chance on myself. I followed my heart and it leads me in the best direction I’ve ever gone.
What can we expect from you in the future?
For the future, I plan to release a 50 track album called “Kamehameha Energy” in the Summer of 2022. Before then I’ll just be releasing singles with videos every month or so. At the same time, I’ll be growing Tripindickulous as a brand with my artistry. So whatever comes along the way will come but that’s the plan and that’s the focus right now.
