He studies a BSc Honours degree in Music Production & Sound Engineering at Point Blank Music School in London. He has devoted his life to music and will do whatever it takes to get to the top. We are happy to introduce you to a talented & independent UK Artist – Willski !

[Blaster] Thank you for your time Willski! What music did you grow up listening to?

Willski: Growing up I always listened to a huge range of music spanning many genres including Hip-Hop, Rap, Pop, R&B, House and even a Dubstep Phase. Depending on the mood I was in, I had a genre of music to fit and music really helped me when growing up to deal with many situations that were present in my childhood.


[Blaster] How did you become involved in music production?

Willski: In 2018 I was studying Media at London Metropolitan University, at the student accomodation where I was staying in Hackney I met a guy who was at Point Blank Music School, he intoduced me to the school as well as there studio facilities, I came to the conclusion through having many conversations with many people I know who are succesful in the music industry that in order to have a long lasting career in music I would need to have more skills added to my roster than just being a vocalist. I did my best to convince the Music School to take me on as I had no qualifications or A-Levels, they eventually offered me an unconditional offer studying Music Production & Sound Engineering and that’s where it all started.


[Blaster] How would you describe your musical style?

Willski: I personally don’t want a specific style, I want my music to reflect who I am as a person, I am always doing something different and this is what I do with my music. I want to be as varied as possible, many people say to find your style and your own lane and stick too it but I get bored easily and would hate to make the same thing over and over again.

[Blaster] Who writes your songs?

Willski: I have written every song that I have released apart from a collaboration with Sebastien Dior who already had lyrics for a verse on our track “If We Try” which featured as number 10 on my album “Horatio”


[Blaster] Is there a hidden meaning in your music?

Willski: There are many hidden meanings, but everything within my lyrics, artwork right through to the reasoning behind the collaboraters are all truth. I talk on things that have happened in my life, are currently happening or I would like to happen. A few examples of hidden meanings would be the artwork that I had produced for me by talented designer Cairo. I had an incredibly difficult childhood and I was never into gaming apart from one game called Kingdom Hearts – there is a specific image captured of the main characters sat on a sloping tree on the beach overlooking the horizon, this is what I then had recreated as an image of myself sat on the tree. The album is called “Horatio” which is in honour of my grandad, this was his middle name. If you study the image I am sat on a specific section of the tree, I wanted these to represent generations, with my grandad being the first section and my dad on the section to the left of me, you will notice that my grandad’s section is dark corresponding to the fact that he is no longer with us. The writing “Horatio” is split in two to represent myself and him being in different places in time but we are still a part of each other. I also worked on an Instagram post which was a different batch of artwork and this was based on an image taken when I was 4 years old and flying a kite with my grandad, the updated artwork is now of me at my age currently flying a kite titled “Horatio” and you will notice that my grandad has no shadow. In regards to my lyrics, I use many double-meanings and even though there are hidden meanings – they are mainly based on “if the shoe fits, wear it”


[Blaster] Do you collaborate with other musicians? What is that process?

Willski: Yes I do collaborations and I am always open to them, regardless of genre. I like to speak with the artist/producer and get to know more about them on a personal level, I feel as though doing it that way you are able to connect deeper with the music that you are collaborating on. I always make my collaborater (especially producers) realise that this is there song as much as mine and that I am always open to ideas they may have as well as any constructive criticism to improve on what I have produced. Given the effect that COVID-19 has had on the world, many of my sessions have been online using Zoom, I am lucky to have invested in a home studio just before the pandemic hit so it is easier to have a session over a computer or phone and bounce ideas between each other.


[Blaster] What skills have you learned that will help you in your music career?

Willski: Patience, when it’s your time it’s your time. Adaptability, being able to produce different music depending on the seasons (spring, summer, autumn & winter) as well as situations that may be going on in society at that time. Strong-Minded, with every loss that is taken I always find a way to bounce back, at this moment of my career there have been more losses than their have been wins but it’s about being able to accept them and continue moving forward bigger and better. Confidence, I have been able to amass alot of confidence from a very young age, for example I was best man at my dad’s wedding when I was 8 years old and had to do a speech in front of 300 people of which 200 I had no clue who they were, people still talk about how well I came across at such a young age and things like this help me now when performing and speaking to radio stations etc.

[Blaster] Do you have a record label? Are you a member of any music organization?

Willski: No I am currently Independent, I have had interest from a few labels and management teams but I think it is best for me in this time of my life to focus on completing my degree before I even consider any contracts or deals that come my way from labels or organisations.


[Blaster] Where do you find your artistic inspiration?

Willski: Myself, in terms of strategies and release structures/promotion I plan to take that from the best in the business such as Drake and Ed Sheeran. Everything else is inspired by the lfie that I have lived and situations that have happened or that I would like my future to hold.


[Blaster] What are the main topics for most of your songs? Do you think topics will change overtime?

Willski: Whatever is going on in my life at the time and how I am feeling, if I am feeling in love then I will do a love song, if it’s a tough time then I may do a sad or relatable song that people can connect with. My topics will continue to change as well as things that I can speak upon as my journey goes on.


[Blaster] What are you working on right now? Did you release something in the past?

Willski: I have over 30+ tracks on all digital streaming platforms and I am currently working on a new album to release. I have somewhere between 40-50 tracks that are ready to go and continue to work on new music which usually ends up being favoured in comparison to another 4 songs that I have already created. I am also working on a few collaborations in new genres that I am yet to delve into.


[Blaster] What do you feel is the best song you ever released and why?

Willski: For me, personally, it has to be “Young Man” which is number 4 on my released album “Horatio” – the track took 10 years of courage and strength to finally speak out about a few things that went on in my childhood and it still makes me tear up listening to it now, it’s a very special track to of made and being able to share that with my audience and the support I received was just incredible.

[Blaster] Who are you inspired by?

Willski: I have been inspired by the way that Juice Wrld was creating almost upbeat music but sad lyrics, his variation with flows and singing which is something I plan to do more of. I also love the way in which G-Eazy carries himself and represents himself as an artist, true to who he is and makes music to fit the everchanging society we live in.


[Blaster] What would be your dream collaboration, with any musician or producer?

Willski: Whenever I am asked this question I always say what I think is the most obvious answer to be set for life, that’s Ed Sheeran. You are guaranteed to make a very nice lump sum of money and have a really good time doing it. The bargaining power that he holds as well as the talent that he has sculptured to create his music is amazing. I believe you could go to every country in the world and they would still know who he is or have heard an Ed Sheeran song.


[Blaster] How do you balance your music with other obligations – school, hobby, job?

Willski: I will be honest, it’s very tough trying to balance everything. I like to have a lot on my plate beacuse that is when I thrive. I would like to be cliche and say I have some sort of rota scheme and it is sectioned out into parts for time management but that’s just not how life works. I have 2 jobs in completely different sectors of work, alongside a clothing brand, my social media platforms, university and my music. I do my very best to prioritise but alot is done on how I am feeling day-to-day and it has been working so I will carry on doing what works.


[Blaster] At the end of the day, what do you hope people take away from your music?

Willski: I just want my music to be listened too and taken on board not just heard. I want people to appreciate that I am putting everything into this and my progression since the early days, with the knowledge that I may make mistakes but it’s about how I bounce back and be better next time. I would love for people to be able to connect with the lyrics that I’m saying as well as situations I have gone through that they may find similarities in their own lives. I want my music to be a safe-space and where a listener can feel comfortable in vibing to whatever style I have gone for.


[Blaster] Would you like to give any message to your fans?

Never give up on anything and always remember you are in control. Whether that is something as simple as getting your eyelashes done how you want them all the way up to starting a new business or beginning a new relationship. Keep spreading awareness on Mental Health, especially you lads – being open and accepting help is, in my eyes, the strongest thing a man can do. For all of my creative minded fans, just keep going, I relate to you so much, when things are good they are amazing, when things are bad it feels like rock bottom but pick yourself up and keep moving in life, what is the alternative? Everything happens for a reason so never dwell on the past. Keep supporting me on my journey and spreading the word as right now you are the people that are the difference for me if I get to where i know I can get too or not. I love you all and I mean that more than anything.
