The Verce has officially become the most interviewed artist here on ELECTRO WOW. Once again this blog serves as a platform to inform his fans the latest novelties in his music career. In this interview, I tried to focused more on his new single “Matt McConaughey”, which is currently on everyone’s lips. Discover more below!
1 – What’s new in 2017 for The Verce?
2017 is very exciting for me. We have a new label Fkn Muzik and are currently signing new artists. I’m releasing 3 new singles this summer and preparing for my college tour this fall.
2 – Have you released a new music video?
Yes. I’m thrilled about my new video titled “Matt McConaughey.” You guys at ELECTRO WOW are the 1st to get it. It releases officially July 1st everywhere.
3 – Where was it filmed? Please give us all the details.
I like to keep it simple. I’ve never really been about flexin, showing off cash, rides etc. I am about the party so I threw a private party for my people.
4 – The single cover of your upcoming release totally grabbed my attention. What did you want to express in this artwork?
Well fortunately and unfortunately the single’s art cover is getting a lot of attention. One of my top movies is Dazed and Confused. One of my favorite characters in that movie is David Wooderson played by Matthew McConaughey. I tried to create a character fusing Verce and Wooderson together in a comedic style for my single art cover. Unfortunately, some people aren’t listening to my lyrics about the unity of races in my songs. Instead, they said the picture was offensive meaning “white faced.” Others thought it was genius and funny. I just want to say I DID NOT mean to offend anyone. I stand for unity.
5 – Generating controversy is a good strategy in music?
Yeah, I must say the controversy has brought attention the video. We leaked it for a few hours and it caught fire. We are on pace to reach a million views in about a week. Not bad for some indies, ha ha ha.
6 – What is your favorite track so far this year? Why?
Def “Matt McConaughey” so far. The whole EDM explosion and being lucky enough to perform at festivals has taught me to enjoy life and have fun. This song has that peace and love feel but with my Verce street flavor. It doesn’t have as big of an electronic vibe as my other songs but still the same message.
7 – Where can we see you performing live in the upcoming months?
Fkn Muzik keeps me busy. We will be performing at Club Lavela in FL, Five Paces in ATL, Center Stage ATL and a few colleges this fall. Visit my website TheVerce.com for details.
8 – How great was your last European tour? What things did you learn during the trip?
Oh wow, that’s a great question. I was in awe. The culture and history are so rich and the people are so wonderful. Don’t sleep on Europe they know their music. Unfortunately, we were so busy I didn’t get a chance to absorb the culture like I wanted. I learned that I have a lot to learn about other cultures and this planet.
Unfortunately, I was not a part of Ultra as a performer this year. As a vocal artist that fuses electronic, there are small performance slots available. I expect to be back next year.
10 – Is there anything else you would like to say to your fans?
Be on the look out for my new video Matt McConaughey. Look for my next single “Geeked” self-explained ha ha ha. Continue to support ya boy and I’m going to continue to make party, peace music. Visit TheVerce.com to see what’s coming soon. Be kind, be different, be you. #Skee One love. -Verce-
