Fun Fact Fans don’t know: 

I hate photoshoots!

Hi Kim! We are so excited to get to speak with you! Please let our audience know where you are doing this interview from now?   

From my home studio in Miami Beach!

What kind of inspiration does the place you live give to your art? 

I am surrounded by the ocean. So, my windows!

How did you end up there and is there a next stop destination for you? 

This is my final spot. I am, at the heart of it, an island girl. I love everything about this area; the people, the community, the lifestyle and of course, the weather!

What makes you feel the most secure when you’re creating? 

Do I feel secure in my work????? I dream of that day, but it does not stop me from trying!  Being creative is fun, but the review of the work by others is, well, challenging!

Your career has gone a wild ride, what was a high and what was a low that you feel comfortable sharing with us?

I have been so blessed with so many highs:  singing for the NFL a couple of times, singing for the NBL, being flown to Asia to perform in a huge festival, and to Croatia…to name a few.   Releasing my first movie – that was a big big big HIGH.  Lows, well, I guess, I still have not made the best hit in the world yet.

How would you describe where you are in your career now? 

Still challenging.  People are just getting over the Covidness, so touring is still sluggish, and frankly, I really miss it.  But it appears I have a European tour coming up in April, so I am super excited about that!

Best ways to keep the momentum in your career? 

Keep me warm and at the beach! But, I also love being surrounded by creative people.  They really inspire me.

What is the improvement that you’re looking to work on within your career? 

To write better.  I think I have used all the words I know, and that is just not good enough.  I need to keep challenging myself.

You have a really cool project that we’re excited about you talking about, Seapers Powers! Please share the AMAZING news you have about it with your audience! 

This is my dream project. It was just picked up as a Dove Original. The Dove Channel has been such a great partner. I could not have gotten more blessed to have found them.  What a wonderful network to be associated with for my very first feature film out of the gate.  I am excited to work with others in other countries as this movie travels across the globe!  And, now, I have begun the second journey…the sequel!  Stay tuned!

Any updates on what arena you’re planning on dominating next! 

Well, releasing three singles, putting together a Euro tour and producing the second movie…is that enough?

How are you challenging the status quo? 

I guess by being a female Director, Producer and Screenwriter all in one!

If you could speed up time would you get where you want to go right now or are you enjoying the journey? 

No no no, I think time goes too quickly right now.  I am enjoying this journey, let’s take one day at a time please.

What is your mantra as an artist for 2022? 

Good question. Never say Never.

What is something that you have taught a peer that you feel really honored to have done?

I actually do not know! I guess, maybe you need to find a peer!

What is something a peer has taught you that you feel honor in learning?

Keep pushing, keep working, never stop.

How are you disconnecting in a world that is always plugged in?

I leave my studio, walk outside and breathe.

When you get back to plugging in, where can fans interact with you?

Los Angeles Producer ArjayOnTheBeat Is Pushing the Perimeters of the Music Industry

To stand out in music, especially a genre like Hip Hop, an artist has to have a presence not only the presence but commanding energy to them that makes you invest in their artistry, which they present for us to buy into. That separates an artist who you only give one listen to and who you start to keep up with. ArjayOnTheBeat brings that confident swagger to his approach that makes you want to stay connected, as he has been unfailing when connecting with his audience and executing vibrant and unique records from a career standpoint.

Arjayonthebeat discussed with us and answered our uncommon 11 Questions. Check it out below.

 

HONK: Let’s start by introducing ourselves. You know the basics, like name, age, and where you’re from, as much or little as you’re comfortable sharing.

ArjayOnTheBeat: Artist Name: Arjayonthebeat /Arjayonthebeat3x

Legal Name: Robert Dickson Jr 

Hometown: Los Angeles, California 

 

HONK: What’s the best advice you ever received concerning music?

See also  Jortzy - Daily

ArjayOnTheBeat: The best advice I’ve ever received concerning music was about mixing. I was honored to have had a one-on-one session with a Grammy-awarded engineer, Leslie Brathwaite, who engineered Pharrell’s “Happy,” which headlined Despicable Me 2. He listened to my beats and told me, “everything was great, but one thing, your mixing.” He then said when it comes to mixing your beats, nothing should be panned to the center but vocals”. In other words, every sound in your beat should be panned between the left and right, never down the middle. 

The best advice of my life…

 

HONK: What would you have done differently if you knew then what you know now?

ArjayOnTheBeat: One thing I would have done differently is take more of the presented opportunities rather than rejecting them due to being overly cautious.

 

HONK: What is still your biggest challenge?

ArjayOnTheBeat: My biggest challenge is finding an artist with the potential/ talent to take them to the top and team up. Until then, the search continues. Most artists don’t take it as seriously as I do. I instead get plaques/awards with one artist repeatedly than try to get one plaque out of multiple artists… if that makes sense.

HONK: What keeps you going when things get tough in the music industry?

ArjayOnTheBeat: My daughters (Indiyah & Xia) and my family are the ones I need to be successful. My goal is to leave generational wealth /money behind for them. 

 

HONK: If you could open a show for any artist, who would it be?

ArjayOnTheBeat: Lil Uzi Vert, Chris Brown, or DJ Khaled

 

HONK: Could you talk me through your creative process?

ArjayOnTheBeat: When it comes to my productions, I never force them. I only make beats when I feel like it, so I don’t burn out my creative juices. 

If I’m not working, I typically listen to various genres to get ideas on enhancing my sound daily. Every genre has something you can learn from…

 

HONK: How do you solve productivity/scheduling problems and reduce overwhelming situations?

ArjayOnTheBeat: I always try to keep the customer/ clients happy, mistakes can occur, so I’ll always offer something in exchange for the mishap to reach a positive conclusion.

HONK: What are you focusing your time on now?

ArjayOnTheBeat: I’m focusing my time on executive producing more projects rather than singles & building my artist (once they’ve been found).

 

HONK: How do you currently feel about the state of “Your genre” in general?

ArjayOnTheBeat: We need more substance in the hip-hop community and a different topic to rap about rather than hoes, guns, apps & negativity. I feel it’s time to switch it up, or else we won’t get as successful as other genres like folk rock & country music.

Ki Storii shines on new single, “Shawty Lo” (ft. Cheek the Profit)

Bronx artist Ki Storii came onto our radar for her recent single, “Shawty Lo”, which features fellow Renaissance Music member Cheek the Profit of New Jersey. An electrifying, catchy single that could rattle any track or provide an apt soundtrack to any night of clubbing and partying, “Shawty Lo”‘s infectious bounce and sharply-crafted vocals demand the listener’s attention immediately. Containing raw, hard-hitting percussion, catchy key riffs, and heavy 808s, “Shawty Lo” is a powerful, and simultaneously sensual, song that provides truly engaging energy.

Talking about “Shawty Lo”, Ki Storii says, “Shawty Lo is about being the life of the party and how the guys love being around her.” This quote rings true from the opening remarks where she states “m*f*ckers out here asking for an only fans page… HA”.

Listen to “Shawty Lo” here and familiarize yourself with the rising Bronx artist:
