How did closing the deal with Warner Records feel?
“So, this wasn’t my first time signing. I’ve been signed to Atlantic before. Skrillex was actually the first person who got me signed to Atlantic. That deal was cool, I had a good time. This time I feel like it’s my second chance in the industry. So, I’m going a lot harder, I want to do things the right way.” He listed some self–critiques and continued, “So, I feel good about it.“
What do you feel is a learning experience from your first deal with Atlantic?
“Well, I feel like I should’ve taken more advantage of the relationships I had. But you know time was a major factor. Thinking you have time.” He then gave some free game, “When somebody gets signed, they think that’s the end of the road. That’s just the start of where you want to go. When you get signed it’s not over and done, it’s literally when the work starts.“
The shy but, outgoing DJ confessed a hidden talent. He can cook COOK. Amani requested to be a taste tester for the self-proclaimed “KitchenSliink.”
