It's festival day, and you and all your friends can't wait to see all your favorite artists in one place despite the hot sun beaming down on your faces. The company you came with made a list of who to see, but since you all arrived early, you head to a stage that seems to be knocking powerful subs and excruciating captivating IDs you probably never heard before. As you look on the festival's itinerary, you discover that its Canadian producer, Caroline Cecil, aka WHIPPED CREAM. A producer who bombards the music scene with tracks that consistently retain an element of surprise where everything she releases is a gift of moxie and heart. WHIPPED CREAM's music brings together a variety of sounds that range from a broad spectrum of genres. She uses heavy bass, experimental bass, trap, hints of drum n bass, and bits of your classic club sounds. Tracks like her Re-Whip version of Rae Sremmurd's "Swang" or her NEST HQ Premiere of "FTP," display her skill in reworking solid hip-hop music and exceptionally creating originals that blow your damn mind! Aside from releasing individual bangers, her recent EP collab with HEKLER, titled Mirrors, establishes her capability in constructing a full on project that shares her style perfectly with others. Now loading up to go on a summer festival tour, such as this year's Hard Summer Music Festival, there is no stopping or telling what she will do next. Recently we had the honor to ask WHIPPED CREAM our essential interview questions to get full dive into her inspirations and style of work she continuously pursues! Enjoy!

Question 1: What got you into making music? 

Growing up a young child, I would sing everywhere all the time. The problem I had have I never had the vocal ability to feel okay to share my voice really. I always felt music. Very immensely throughout every bone in my body. When a good song was playing, I felt like the most confident, invincible person in the world. 

I grew up as a competitive figure skater.  At 17, I was in a serious accident and was forced to give it up. I took a year off and worked full time thinking I would travel to AUS and explore. That following summer (a few months before my planned AUS trip) I decided to go to my first music festival. That's where my life would change forever. For once in my life, I felt whole. I'm not sure how but it was the energy there from the artists, the people. I can't explain it in words, but I knew I wanted to provide that feeling for the rest of my life... When I got home, I quit my full-time job, broke up w my bf, bought my equipment with the money I had saved for AUS, and decided to dedicate my life to this.

Question 2: What people intrigue you or inspire you to pursue music?

I draw a lot of inspiration from RnB. Believe it or not, it makes me feel the most melancholy and I write my best work in that feeling. People like Frank Ocean, Alon Mor, Majid Jordan, Baauer, RL Grime, The Internet, Skrillex, LSDXOXO, TNGHT, Boys Noize, Tyler The Creator, Corbin,  Sonder, Tupac, Andre 3000,  Travis Scott, Future, Led Zepplin, Swizzy Mack, Josh Pan, X&G. 

Question 3: How would you define your style of music?  

I don't really know how to describe my music when people ask, and I find they have a hard time explaining it too, but most of my original music is dark, heavy, full of feeling and pure energy from what I was feeling at that moment of creating.

Question 4: What influences your style of work? 

Love, pain, happiness, people, nature, and life in general.

Question 5: What is your favorite track that you have produced so far? 

One that is out would be "Suffocate." Unreleased would be "SHE"...which will be coming out soon xxx:)

Question 6: Any goals or plans in mind for you as an artist in the future? Anyone who you would love to work with?

Some amazing things are brewing at this very moment. I'm feeling extremely grateful for the people who are here with me on this journey and feel my vision. I'd love to work with any of those artists mentioned above. xx
