Shadez the Misfit had a successful 2013, dropping the highly anticipated visuals for the track ‘See It In My Eyes’ on VEVO as well as being selected as one of the new faces for Samsung’s #OVERTOYOU campaign. We recently caught up with him to discuss his big plans for 2014…
The former MTV Brand New Unsigned nominee has a busy year ahead, and was happy discuss his plans for where he sees himself in the next 12 months, stating: "’Ne Plus Ultra’ [is] the next chapter in my music journey. I can't wait to release it and showcase it in the way I intend to. Where [do] I see myself this time next year?This time next year I aim to solidify myself as a UK artist and creative pushing the barriers with everything I touch.”
As well as talking about the future, it was important to discuss the ‘Till That Day’ rapper’s inspiration behind his latest release ‘See It In My Eyes’, which received rave reviews from his growing fan base. Speaking on the project, Shadez explained: “The main inspiration for the See it Through My eyes video was to showcase despite the adversities I face and continue to face. The track as a whole reflects everything about my life, from the hustle and hunger, but also showcasing the struggle and norms I've faced which to others can be seen as an extreme.”
He continued: “Music is very important to me it has always been my therapy and way of getting things off my chest as well as venting. Those moods represent my sounds and convey how I feel. I try and aim to relate my music to as many people as well as myself. I just want to bring a feeling and emotion back to music and my sound in general and make people really appreciate that”
