(Rules of The Gauntlet: The artist (in this case Indietronica – Experimental – House – Pop ninja JHNN) is sent a butt ton of questions ranging from standard to stupid from which they must choose at least 12 to answer and return them to us with a minimum of tear stains).
Tell me why your music rules. Or why it sucks.
I think It’s good because it makes me happy.
Tell me about your new album. The writing, vibe, production/producers, etc.
My new Album is entitled ‘Machine Funk’ and the first single off of it actually is “My Strange Addiction”. I got my friend from a small town in Alberta, Canada to do a remix for me for the single which sounds more industrial than mine (Hence why I asked him). I wanted darker and moody. I just wanted it to sound like Post Punk meeting house meeting afro beats but it ended up sounding industrial. I love the ending result. I can say for my future stuff coming out this year I am about to get real personal and open up about my biggest flaws. Coping with anxiety is a big one.
