“The future of music is going in all different directions. There are so many styles developing and soundscapes. My advice is just be you.”

Check out the interview with Dox Boogie Music exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.

Skilly: How were you able to start your journey in the entertainment business? Where did this all start?
Dox Boogie Music:
I was actually a graffiti writer first. Walking the lines with cans and cans of paint. It led to art school at FIT. They had a radio station there, and I inquired and spinning that mix show got me. I’ve been doing music ever since.

What are some of the creative ways you use to promote your music?
Tours and live performances of course, social media, and music sites where they rate the artists by fan appreciation. I’ve received more email for my supporters than ever.

What is the greatest challenge you face in today’s entertainment business? How do you overcome them?
Competing with these artists that pop up overnight. I’ve been doing this 15 years and I’ve seen plenty come and go. We at Brain Kave have creativity and it’s consistant.

How is the music scene like in your hometown? What do you like about it and what don’t you like?
I just relocated to southwest Florida, so I don’t know the scene much. As far as NY and the metro area, it’s cutthroat. There’s also a lot of procrastinating, janky promoters, etc. Don’t get me wrong, the reasons are great. There’s events and solid promoters out there.

Where do you think the future of music is going to be? How do you feel artists can be more a part of it?
The future of music is going in all different directions. There are so many styles developing and soundscapes. My advice is just be you.

What advice can you give to other upcoming artists and musicians trying to achieve success?
Be yourself.

What inspires you to write your next song?
Can be a release of stress, something on my mind, feelings of the past coming to the forefront, pain, love, life.

What are the steps you take to make a song?
Usually I produce the beat first. As I produce my own beats also I like quiet and to just envelop myself in my instrumentals.

What do you think makes a great song?
That chill up your spine, that feeling that makes you smile.
