    Maffmatix x ILL Bill On A Captivating Hit Single “Grime Time”

    Bangkok-based singer and songwriter Maffmatix teamed up with an old-school hip-hop legend ILL Bill to create a captivating new hit entitled “Grime Time.”

    This is a follow-up to Maffmatix’s first solo album, “Metanoia Seven,” a collection of seven songs. Precipitously gaining swiftness in the music society that has led to steady growth, “Grime Time” has acquired significant recognition across the music industry, accumulating over 15,000 streams on Spotify alone.

    Maffmatix had a conversation with us and answered our distinctive 8 Questions. Check it out below.

    1. So tell us, how did it all begin? What encouraged you to start playing and making music?

    As a child, I was a music junky, listening to all genres of music day in and day out. Until college, I had only dabbled with audio recording devices to play with my voice and whatnot, but I never had any musical training. I wanted to make music, but I couldn’t play instruments. I began producing music with my computer, programming the piece visually, which became my gateway drug into music creation.

     

    1. Talk me through your creative process when you write new music.

    Nowadays, I just wait for inspiration (which can come from anywhere), and I make a conscious effort to recognize when I feel inspired and either make a mental note to create something based on that or go directly to my computer and start producing something!

     

    1. Can you tell us about your new single, ‘On The Low’?

    Grime Time came from one of those inspired moments when I heard a quirky, obscure song from the 70s, and I decided to chop it into oblivion and transform it into a beat. As the beat became whole, I realized the style of it reminded me of one of my favorite hip-hop artists, ILL Bill. I had such a strong vision of him rapping on the beat that I wrote a verse with a lot of inspiration from him. And to take it further, after recording my verse, I reached out to his team and submitted the song, asking if he would like to jump on the beat for verse #2. He did. One of the best moments in my life, musically.

     

    1. What do you like most about being a music artist?

    My favorite part of making music is not trying to fit in or do what is expected of me. Making any kind of art should come from your heart and soul first. Of course, you want to entertain and please other people, but that can get out of hand. I just enjoy making music the way it sounds in my head.

     

    1. What projects do you have coming up? Can you give us any info on them?

    I have a collaborative hip-hop album coming up with British MC Charly Banks, which will have a wonky underground hip-hop vibe. I’m also working on a bunch of new undisclosed projects.

     

    1. Do you have any advice for our readers who may be trying to enter the game of music?

    Do whatever you want to do. There are no rules. Don’t aim for fame. Aim for happiness. Balance your life and connect with ‘the source.’

     

    1. How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations?

    Part of the way I enjoy life is by reducing stress by any means possible. I just take it easy and avoid overwhelming scheduling.

     

    1. Name Three things you can’t live without when recording in the studio.

    I can work in any studio as long as there’s the essential equipment…. so it’s not a matter of life or death… But I love soda water because it is my go-to drink in the studio. Marijuana is a significant factor in getting the creative juices going sometimes. And an internet connection can be #3.
