We caught up with DatClockBoy to talk about his music. At Indiy we champion musicians.

Let's get to it...

What do you enjoy most about being an independent musician?

My freedom to create what I want.

And the fact that I'm able to distribute when I feel like it!

If we were to peek over your shoulder, what does your studio look like? What gear do you typically use?

I go where I'm comfortable.

VIPs is the studio I use in VA...

And Nubirth is the studio I use in Brooklyn.

Do you enjoy recording and production, or do you like performing live and promotion?


How would you want people to describe your latest project in a tweet?

As a good vibe...

Do you plan your music releases, or do you just finish a song and release it?

Finish and release!

What can we expect from you within the next 6 months? Any releases planned? Future gigs?

I have an EP on the way!

It's going to be released on a Sony platform...

Also, got a few visuals dropping and a short film that I'm working on...

Are you planning any videos for your music? Are there any videos we need to know about!?

Search 'Datclockboy' on YouTube to see visuals.

Are there any collaborations, past or future, that you are excited about?

Can't really say...

But yes, there are a few in the making!

What inspires your creative process?

A beat that catches me, excites me!

A beat that tells me what to do!

What are your top three favorite albums of all time & why?

Reasonable doubt...I could relate.

Notorious...I was feeling this vibe.

And 'Thank God for the Block'...I feel like I was at my best when I wrote this...

Who makes up your existing creative team?
i.e. photographers, video directors, social media managers, paid media specialists, stylists, hair, and makeup…Name someone who you think deserves a special shout-out?

Kevin Tucker...My dude makes sure everything is right...

And my main producer, Franam...he keeps me with heat!

Where can we find you on social media?

Datclockboy..search that every where!
