Founded on the ambition of reaching the heart of a black child and to empower and motivate the less privileged, music production team, #The MUScrew have been raising the bars of talent with their prepared Food Of The Spirit catered for South African attention.
Who is the MUScrew, who are you guys? MUScrew is a musical team consisting of three talented members, namely, Lillly Queen, Uncensored Keede and myself, Max Ellipses. We are greatly inspired by cu
From where does your ambition derive? It’s really just the intensity of the same music dream, and the different background we come from. I’d say it had a great influence on our passion for this type of work load
Who made who you are today? We wouldn’t really put it that way. Enough, I’d say, was only the passion and the love for music, and not to forget the support amongst each other and some family members who had an input to our success.
You guys seem to have a solid acquaintanceship, what sustains this strong relationship? It is the understanding of one another’s personality, willingness and knowing what’s right or wrong. It automatically builds the respect for one another and gives birth to an awesome alliance.
South Africa is at its focal point within the Music Industry, What separates #MUSCREW from the rest? We are about our own syllabus. We’d rather be followed than to follow the trend. Our unique sound separates us from the rest of the hip hop & RnB cats. Or should I put it this way; We don’t graze along with the flock.
What contents do you guys believe every inspirational music artist, in your genre, should consist of in their songs? (list at least 5)
- Story telling
- Words to relate to
Is it about what you experienced directly/indirectly, or does creativity take dominance in determining the concept for your songs? The best strategy with which one or two may write a song is in accordance with your emotions felt at that moment or memorial flashbacks. That’s the core of our concepts
IN THE PIPELINE
What should SA expect from #MUSCREW in 2018 and beyond? MUScrew has already released two singles titled Incwad’encane and Star Signs(cover). Also, we are currently working on an EP project that will feature the like of Mzulu, Scelo Gowane, Moshine(WTF). It will be released later this year, therefore, expect a good and unique sound.
What tips and advices would you guys offer to the MUSCREW of tomorrow? Be passionate, humble, work together and to the best of your ability. Believe in the little that you’re able to offer.
