We caught up with Loksmif 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?

I have creative control, I can release when I choose to, and last of all...

I'm the Boss!

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

The studio used for song production is decked with...

A recording booth that Boss Nite and momma and myself built ????????,

A $1500 recording ???? mic

Protools HD board

And some awesome speakers

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

I enjoy it all...

It's all a rush!

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

"The future is now!!"

"How can I rest streaming now!!"

"Uknomewel LilKev Loksmif resets the bar!!"
