After gaining a reputation for fresh and exciting offerings these last few years, including a string of highly-praised efforts last year, Saudi Arabian musician and producer B-Element is now kicking off his 2023 in style with the breezy new gem 'In The Music'.
Teaming up with vocalists Shqzu and Kali-B for the release, 'In The Music' makes for a brilliantly warm and groove-filled delight. Channelling the same breezy textures as Anderson .Paak and Mac Miller, this new jam is a perfect example of his illustrious sound to date.
So with the new single available now, we sat down with him to find out more about his origins and influences over the years.
What was the first band or artist you fell in love with?
Daft Punk definitely. I just loved their fresh yet nostalgic sound. Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?
I never had a band but i was in a rap group that made underground and alternative hip hop music What has been your primary inspiration in writing music?
Music itself, listening to new music, new artists and producers. What is a song you wish you had written yourself? KATRANADA - At All If there was any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?
Definitely the early days just having fun with friends. it felt purer. Which artist would you most love to share a stage with? I can name a lot but i would go with either Kendrick Lamar or Anderson Paak And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well? I can name a lot of artists, honestly there are a lot of crazy talents around the world but I would go with the same answer above. And it could change over time also Where do you see yourself in five years time?
Hopefully still making music and elevating my sound
