Read the Kyeda Interview below and share it on social media.
Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?
Hi. I'm Kyeda, but my friends and parents call me Jordan. I have lived in multiple places across the world and have taken different ideas from those places to create my own spin on modern style. This style is included in everything I wear, do, or make, especially with the music I create. I love to make extravagant, beautiful music, but always create sounds as unique and otherworldly as possible. It is important for me to always capture a feeling for the audience to take away from after hearing a song.
How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?
I would say my top 4 influences for artists are currently;
Family and Friends
My greatest influence of all time, however, is when I moved to Japan. That experience not only changed my life (for the better), but it gave me an array of motivation to get into music again. The music that I was introduced to their was for the first time EDM. In which, I instantly fell in love, before EDM I was recording friends rapping in my homemade closet studio loll. Anyways, over time I have produced so many genres and my tastes in music never stop morphing and evolving. Now I create something I like to call Psychedelic Bass. You can call it whatever though because I really just try to make what I would like to hear from a song and hope people like it.
What´s new right now?
A lot of interesting things are going on! I recently just released a track named "Abyss" which is about a person fighting for their life, after drowning. I used a sample from a super cool movie named Abyss. The song, however, has a lot of meanings behind it which you can find a full description about on my Facebook Page. Currently, I am working on my next release in which I just finished the mix/master for though. I am planning on an early December, late November release for that one (it will be on my SoundCloud below). In addition on November 12th I am releasing my first Mix called Sea of Sound 001 and on November 16th I will be releasing a Live Set that goes along with my latest release. So definitely check it out everyone, Thank You!
How do you personally discover new music?
I tend to listen to a lot of iHeartRadio and see who is sounding like the style I make. Otherwise, I tend to just keep a centralized group of people I like and I observe their likes, reposts, and collabs.
Once you discovered new music, do you tell others about the new music/artist you discovered? If yes, how exactly?
"I make sure I throw it in my latest mix. A lot of times I find music just for mix purposes and will change up my style for the mix, making me really consciously listen to anything that might fit that timbre within my genre.
