Eazi Beatz Talks of Music, Shows and Lots More!

Up and coming rap and Afrobeats artist EAZI BEATS has always been surrounded by music, art, and culture, which has massively influenced his taste and interests within music. Over time, he has released tracks, and even has some new tracks set in stone and expected out and about soon enough! Some shows are also in the works too, with some other plans being arranged with much else in-store too! The artist himself talks of all of everything said below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

My name is Eazi Beatz and I'm a Rap and Afrobeats Artist and Producer. I was born in Lagos, Nigeria and growing up, I was surrounded by music, art and culture which massively influenced my taste and interests in music. Some of my fondest memories as a child was helping my dad wash his car on Sunday mornings while listening to Fela or rap music. Music played a very big part in my upbringing: my father was always listening to music and he was quite close to a lot of artists in Nigeria, they trusted his input and feedback regarding their music and I remember one time, my dad playing an unreleased album of one of my favorite bands which wasn’t dropping for another month!

My journey into creating music first started with producing remakes of popular instrumentals, and after a lot of practice and learning, I started producing my own instrumentals and eventually led to me writing my own songs. 

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

In College we had a freestyle competition and after my set, a friend in the audience compared me to Fat Joe and the name Joe Eazi kinda stuck from there. I then rebranded to Eazi Beatz as I wanted my moniker to reflect me as an Artist, and as a producer. 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I am based in Plymouth, Southwest of England and the music scene here is growing, especially in the last few years. I remember when I first moved here 9 years ago and how different it was to London, but the last few years has seen an increase of Interest in urban music, with venues now catering to specifically to these genre of music. An artist I would recommend is KRU, he has an amazing voice and is very versatile when it comes to his delivery on a track.

4. How would you describe your style?

As someone with my upbringing and exposure to different sounds and genre over the years, I think I would describe my style as a unique blend of Trap, Rap and Afrobeats elements. My music reflects my experience and mood: whether I’m vibing and in a good mood or something is on my mind and I'm feeling some type of way, I want my music to convey that exact feeling so hopefully my listeners can understand, relate to, and feel some of that when they listen to my music. 

When writing a track, the one goal I have is to create something expressive and enticing to the listener. I want whoever listening to feel the music and feel part of the storytelling. 

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

I have released a few Rap and Afrobeats tracks over the past couple of years but some of my personal favorite's are 

1. Black Magic: a 2 minute, non stop epic use of vocals and string instruments to depict my art and how I see myself.  

 2. Low Key: an Afrobeats track that narrates a dynamic perspective to the chase, and how it affects both parties.

When it comes to my music, expect the unexpected as I aim to challenge the status quo when producing and recording music. 

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

As a matter of fact I do, I currently have a few songs in the pipeline with plans of dropping another one in the next couple of months. I took some time off music last year as I became a new dad and I wanted to focus all my energy on enjoying that experience, and I know that this new found perspective will influence my future releases. 

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

There is a show in Bristol that we are just waiting on confirmation for this summer. There’s also a festival in the works in Plymouth later this year that should be a part off, just waiting on confirmation. Covid affected a lot of my live plans the last two years but we are getting back on track this year. 

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Consistency. I have a lot of unreleased material, this year I want to focus on my consistency and drop new songs regularly. 

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to my music on all major streaming platform, also follow my socials (Instagram, Twitter, TikTok - @EaziBeatz ) to get up to date info, behind the scene content and first look on what’s coming.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I want my music to convey my exact feelings when recording and I hope my listeners can understand, relate, and feel some of it when they listen to my music.
