GuruZenn


Read the GuruZenn Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I am Rashad Bailey, also known as GuruZenn, an American DJ, Producer, Artist, and Influencer based out of Dallas, Texas and Chicago, Illinois. I create sounds for the "in-betweeners". The ones who have the playlist with Kendrick and Morrissey. Yeah, just like that.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My influences have a LIMITLESS. I grew up in a musically-rich family so I naturally listened to all the classics from the Marvin Gayes and Aretha Franklins to the Celene Dions and Whitney Houstons. I was always cultured, I listened to a lot of world and new-age. I got this CD of Andreas Vollenweider and Tangerine Dream when I was like 8 years old or something like that. It really opened my ears. From there I expanded on top of that. I have a sister, and were big on those poppy, Disney Channel Originals Movies, so we were big on all that jolly, (some would call cheesy) pop music. You know, the Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, *NSync and Backstreet Boys ( The good 'ole days). But at the same time I was always listening to everything, especially whatever was on the radio. As I got older my ear matured and I really started listening and appreciating more alternative/indie musics. Some of my favorites include Cocteau Twins, Lush and Slowdive. (Shoutout to 4AD lol). Of course, I mess with Hip-Hop/Trap ish (Dilla, Pete Rock, IcyTwat, Odd Future, N.E.R.D., Future Young Dolph), and pretty much anything internet-age (vaporwave, synthwave, outrun, etc.). And I love Kwaito-House, Afrobeat, Boogie, Citypop, Post-Disco, Classic OSTs, Anime, Eurodance and D-Town Boogie. Yeah that's about it. Oh yeah Shout out Kero Kero Bonito & Death Grips lol


What´s new right now?
