How long have you been making music for?
I think it was around 11ish? I remember my dad downloaded FL Studio on his computer because I didn't have one at the time. I’d have to wait until he wasn't working on it and try to figure out the pretty rough terrain of the FL Studio UI. Eventually, I got my own computer (haha and Ableton).
How would you describe the music that you make?
Reggae, Country, Folk, and Comedy Podcast, and some Skrillex? Those are a lot of things I wouldn't describe it as. Actually maybe Skrillex.
Do you think your style of production and sound overall has changed in the past few years?
Absolutely. 2 years ago I released a future bass track with anime samples, which if you're into is a fun time, but I’d definitely say I've changed a bit since then.
When starting a new project, where do you get inspiration from?
It's just a lot of the music I love really. Also digging on youtube is a lot of fun. There's just so much stuff that blows me away, music has been happening for so long, and there are a seemingly endless amount of sounds I've never heard before, and that is very exciting.
Any future goals or dream collaborations you’d like to mention?
It would be really wild if I started releasing just super impractical merch. Like, Folie™ brand Trading cards, or a Folie brand penny presser (for the Folie™ amusement park), or just a normal bible but instead of saying bible on the cover it says “Folie Bible.” Those aren't really any personal goals of mine, though. Working with Bjork is a huge dream for sure.
