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


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


RxSolo is a 20-year-old beatmaker, rapper and DJ, unconfined by genre. From Cape Town, but currently studying abroad in Pe?cs, Hungary, his solo work focuses on experimental hip hop with heavy jazz and lo-fi influences. Apart from this, and being a member of the Stone Soup Collective (Cape Town) he also started Sway.Ed, a three-piece boom bap, jazz fusion group with guitarist Josh Hendricks and bassist Gumbo (of Gumbo Ya-Ya’s, the Fads) who released their ‘Summer (Time/Love)’ EP in July 2017. As a DJ, he is slowly pushing through the scene, playing with top acts in Cape Town, as well as with Samiyam (Stones Throw/ Brainfeeder USA). He was able to be in studio with MNDSGN (Stones Throw USA).
In Cape Town, he has performed at N.U.D.E collective, Uppercut, OH OK Launch, Yours Truly, House of Machines, Prime, The Kids Are All Right, and has competed in Button Bashers.
In Hungary, he has performed at small bars and clubs for the events group called "BETWIX" and Made in Pécs. He has performed live at Tinta Art Cafe in association with Elevated, as well as Frame for Onehundred. In the upcoming Summer he will be performing at the Bankito Festival in Hungary.

His latest project, Flower EP (Released in November 2017), will be accompanied by a short film which will be released in March (2018).

He is currently working on a project series called " *insert* Complex* which will be released through out the next 6 months.


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


My influences growing up wasn't really hip hop orientated. First couple artists or bands that I can remember were mainly Rock/Metal/Alternative artists such as: Linkin Park, Green Day, Creed and similar artists during that time. I was introduced to these artists by my siblings.

Later on as I entered adolescence and a bit before that, my was listening to Eminem, 50 Cent, Dr Dre, Snoop, Lil Wayne, Drake everyone who was mainstream at that time. The older I got i started digging more and more into different genres as well and slowly adjusting my personal preference for sound in music which then helped me figure out what I envisioned for my own sound eventually.

Currently my main influences would be Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar, Mndgsn, Samiyam, Flying Lotus, Jonwayne, King Krule, B.Cool Aid, Aesop Rock and Childish Gambino. I could list many more.

My change in my style has and always will change I think. I can't keep making nor listen to the same type of style or genre for too long before I get tired of it. I would then put it on a break and find something else and revisit again when I am lacking inspiration or lacking new ideas for sound.

Currently my taste/style I am pursuing is more organic sounds and a more free and unconfined instrumental jazz-boom-bap-lo-fi-experimental style.

This all applies to when I DJ, Produce or Rap.


What´s new right now?


Currently I am working on a project series that will be released throughout the next 6 months. I am also working on another lo-fi experimental project with a good friend and talented producer from South Africa, Dj Skinniez.

Upcoming live gigs:
4th March I will DJ at a local bar in Pécs called Nappali.
9th March I will perform and do a live set in Budapest at a club called Frame.
11-15 July I will be performing at the Bánkito Fesztivál in Hungary.
New dates for more shows will be both updated and arranged soon.

I will be releasing my Short film for my latest project, "Flower EP", during March.
