We caught up with Aymane Abid AKA The Kolys 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?

Being able to work on your own, and making and taking your own decisions without any pressure.

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

I use headphones, a pc, my daw, keyboard and monitors!

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

Surprised by my music!

What makes a good song in your opinion?

The vibe and the energy behind.

How do you know that you want to work with an artist or a group or band?

When I feel like I'll be useful and have a good impact in the song...

And I like the group or band vibe!

Do you plan your music releases, or do you let the artists and labels you work with drive the process?

Yes! I release my own music...

but I would like to have someone to help like a label or other artists!

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

A lot of releases are planned, still working on them!

Are there any collaborations past of future that you are excited about? Producers, artists, instrumentalists or songwriters?

Yes! I'm working with local rappers in my city and also I'll be producing for other artists in my own style.

What inspires your creative process?

It's all about the vibe and the mood.

If I'm in a studio and everyone is happy and everything is going well...I'll make bangers!

What are your top three favorite albums of all time? Why those albums?

1st - 2014 Forest Hills Drive by J.Cole

The music and the vibe on it is so unique!

The way J.Cole raps...the beats are made...the mixing and mastering!

Everything in this album is unique!

2nd - Life of a Don by Don Toliver

Everything about this album is fantastic! Even the collabs are fire!

And every song in this album have his own world, it's impossible to get bored while listening!

3rd - Hi This is flume by Flume

His album is strange...We already know that flume is a legend!

How he make his songs is unique, his style and talent are very unique.

This album has weird songs, weird arrangements and a very psychedelic mix!

This what makes this album one of the best albums in electronic music of all times.
