The quick 5: KC Wray caught our attention through his fresh and catchy sound infused with inspiration from genres such as Hip Hop and Chicago House. We had a little chat with him ahead of the release and asked him 5 quick and compact questions to accompany the exclusive stream of his track.
We are back with a new SNOEflakes edition, and trust us when we say you don’t want to miss out on this one! Berlin and US based KC Wray is the second fresh face in the SNOE family this month, and his track “Wiggidy Whack” is a proper tech house banger ready to set the dance floors on fire with its tight drums, solid bassline and funky vocal elements.
How would you describe your music to someone who has never heard you before?
Groovy dance floor ready music that draws inspiration from Hip-Hop, Latin and African music while always attempting to pay respect to Chicago House.
What would you say is the essence of “Wiggidy Whack”?
I would say the essence of Wiggidy Whack is “attitude”. Wether I am DJ’ing or producing I am always trying to convey feelings and emotions. I am constantly lost in my head and bass lines and kicks are sort of like a musical mood ring for me if that makes any sense. I coin this bass line as “Ghetto Bass” because it’s just so gangster. So yeah the essence is raw attitude.
How much time do you spend in the studio?
I spend as little time in the studio as possible. I am a get in and get out sort of guy. If something doesn’t just click then it just isn’t natural and is forced. I get all my inspiration from being out on the streets, in the clubs you can catch me in the corner taking notes on my phone or walking down the street recording vocals hooks that just popped into my head. Once I feel like I have a solid idea then I go into the studio and make it happen.
What is your favourite toy for making music?
My pen and paper and my sound recorder. I guess I take sort of Hip Hop approach to producing house. I normally make some hook or rhyme and this manifests itself into a bass-line.
What are your guilty pleasures?
I have a weird obsession with coconut water and fried chicken.
