there is no huge electronic party sound on PURPLE*PANDA, BUT it starts off with a funk/electro fusion. i’m experimental so i try to never do the same thing. But in the future, you will here more radio style instrumentals, with my weird writing.
August 26th, 2011: then known as Xay Crosby was eliminated in the first round of American Idol auditions in Houston, Tx.
This rejection reignited the fire to write again. The fire to write set a fire to record again. In December 2011, basic recording equipment was bought, Xay Crosby was buried and Spazzy Rocket was reborn.
On January 1st, 2012, Spazzy Rocket released his first song as a solo artist, ‘Morning’. After many positive responses (and finally somewhat learning how to use cubase 4), Spazz continued recording, abbreviated his name to SPZRKT, and began to work on his debut project, ‘While We’re Young’. Why was i talking in the 3rd person? CUZ ITS AWESOME.
While We’re Young was recorded in my apartment bedroom, in a corner. i had to the talent to record but not to engineer, so the mixes were horrible. with very little extra money, i could only afford to have 2 songs mixed by an engineer. but i didnt let that excuse stop me. i had to put out music, and if i was good enough, someone would be willing to help me in the future.
June 6th, 2012, While We’re Young is released. new fans, waaaay more followers, and the attention of producers and artists in a position to help me. A feature on Black Knight’s debut album, becoming a Social Club Misfit Gang Wolfpack member, the connection with D-Flow, all because i took a chance on a badly mixed mixtape. i trusted God.
Here we are in December and the second project, PURPLE*PANDA, releases on Christmas. much higher expectations, and the attention of even more industry names that could help. will this be viewed as a sophmore slump, or a catapult into a discussion of great music with other great artists?
either way, what a difference a year makes.
