POINT OF VIEW INTERVIEW #3
When I first heard Lanz's music, it was in the car, with my best friend driving and my sister in the backseat. My sister decided to Bluetooth some new music she said her friend had been producing. I was excited to hear what she had in store for us and as soon as the first beat drop, I could feel the ambiance in the car change. I heard artistry, youth, originality, and most of all potential. Even though it was a rough edit my sister had streamed, it was still amazing to hear. Lanz produces what I would resemble most likely to as chill-hop. With an album arriving in the upcoming months, you could say I am more than ecstatic for its debut. Below check out my recent interview with Lanz, as well as his SoundCloud for a taste of what his upcoming album will deliver.
Follow Lanz on:
Question 1: What got you into making music?
Well I grew up in a musical family. My mom would sing in a band. It wasn't until my freshman year of high school I started making music. My friend would do covers of songs and then one day he downloaded a production program called FL Studio. We started by working on tracks together but eventually decided to work on stuff separately. I purchased the program myself and started writing my own music.
Honestly, there are a ton of people who inspire me to pursue music. To name a few people I would say Blackbear, Jon Bellion, Noah Shebib (40), etc. My family also encourages me.
Question 3: How would you define your style of music?
I guess you can say my music is primarily Hip-Hop.
Question 4: What influences your style of work?
The music on my upcoming project has been influenced by a lot of singers & rappers. Blackbear, Kehlani, Bryson Tiller, & G-Eazy.
Question 5: What is your favorite track you have produced so far?
So far my favorite track that I’ve produced is on my upcoming project. The song is called “Judas”. It’s very atmospheric.
Favorite tracks I’ve produced: Judas, Next (Feat. Jems), Golden Days. (All off of my upcoming album) I plan to release it early 2016.
Question 6: How far do you plan to take your music?
I plan to take my music as far as God lets me. I love creating music and as long as it’s fun, I plan on doing it! I don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
