Soul Amp Entertainment’s hip-hop artists, Gingy and Ink Heart, have dropped the body work for the album ‘Wavy’. In an exclusive interview upon release of ‘Wavy’, which came out on Friday, the artists described their work as being “wild, able, vibrant and young.”
“In a nutshell, ‘Wavy’ is an album that tackles all aspects of present-day life mixed with hints of the past and warnings for the future.”
“It is us [as artists] relating to the world we are in and spreading thought on it,” Gingy and Ink Heart say.
The message? “We have taken our day-to-day circumstances and portrayed those in a way that puts the listener in our shoes while having us in theirs.”
“This is to communicate that there’s hope and bright future for those who strive. But on every path there are obstacles and on this album we aren’t hiding it,” they explain.
Super producer Basssik produced the album.
Divulging the creative process, Gingy and Ink Heart say “most won’t believe it, but most of the album was produced on the spot.”
Basssik would make the beat, Gingy and Ink Heart would write and then record. “It was a very organic experience.”
There are no features on the album, both artists have a voice louder than one album, so it was best to give them ample room for creativity.
‘Wavy’ has taken close to half-a-year to make. “Due to differentials schedule-wise, this album took six months to create. A lot went into the creation of this album.”
Soul Amp is set to perform at this year’s forthcoming Carlsberg Urban Music Legacy,scheduled for 26th August at the College of Medicine Sports Complex in Blantyre.
Commenting on this opportunity, Basssik says: “This is a great chance to showcase what Soul Amp is about, which is a lot. We don’t want to give any spoilers, therefore we suggest you attend the event and witness first-hand what we are about.”
Basssik says the Soul Amp team brings enlightenment, knowledge, creativity and freedom of artistic mind to the table.
He adds that they are here to stay. “The realisation that Soul Amp is here to stay, you will not know which wind causes the storm coming.”
