This song is about...
the process of writing my last album ‘Out of Left Field’. I was withering down my options on producers for my music, hence the title "Then There Were Two". I talk about my producer Maddfrequency and Nico from Sweetspot studio pushing me to my lyrical limits and I am also talking to the love of my life, her name is Hip Hop.
My music is... genius, raw, inspirational, unique, addictive, honest and explosive.
How do you think this release represents your current direction..
The only direction I plan on going is up, so what better way than to perform at my best in my first home, Florida. My music represents my community and I want to give back by bringing some dope ass music, Florida is a major hub for many different artists and I am striving to add my name to the list of accomplished musicians.
Interview: Behind The Music with Intellect on Being a Creator Today and New Single Then There Were Two
Mike Intellect speaks to Jacqueline Jax about making music and the need for creators to focus on growth and development rather than a pushed “Hustle” that weakens their quality and ability to emerge as a unique artist. **Why creators are missing the ability social media can bring them in viral promotion and how to capture it. The importance of effective indie music promotion and how it fits into a creative journey.
"Our totally new sound is exciting to me because we have incorporated elements of Jazz and Hiphop into the music where each musician is able to be heard and have a special voice. I’m hoping to create timeless work that offers the listen a special listening experience."
I’m working with several TV series in LA, making music and am developing myself as a multifaceted talent.
What piece of music advice forever changed your way of thinking?:
umm I am still learning for my thinking is always evolving but I will say that I have studied other hip hop artists and developed my own sense of self worth and to me that's important thing in music.
Be yourself, not a copy of someone else to fit in.
The music business needs Intellect…
There is power in my music. I speak for my military brethern, I speak hope and truth for not only myself but others who are searching for healing through music. It's an honor to be heard.
