Interview: Lil Eddie

Puerto Rican Musical Guru, Lil Eddie, is as dynamic as it comes as his creative prowess ranges from hit-making Producer, 11x Grammy-Nominated Musician/Songwriter and more. The wide variety of genre-bending bangers that have Lil Eddie’s touch on them will astound you, and it is our pleasure to catch up with the man to discuss his roots growing up in NYC, the entire world being in the palm of our hands, overcoming poverty, adversity and more.

Let’s talk about the new video teaser that you posted about on your Instagram with that yellow drip on. What do we have to look forward to?

Ahhhhh maybe a dope video in Greece with the Acropolis in the backdrop! #GITANA

Let’s talk about your current life in New York. How do you balance the constant hustle of the city with ensuring to take some downtime to focus on your creative work?

I live in London and LA now but grew up in NYC, that city life is real! London is very similar to the city and commuting around the city. I say the creativity is inspired by my daily commute. The music is in the streets on the trains, busses, Uber rides everywhere we turn.

Showcasing the human in you, what is a challenging thought that you recently had and were able to overcome over time?

I will say the feeling of loneliness. I’m a single man so sometimes the work takes all of me and I rarely get to do anything so love can’t come being trapped away which leads me to then tell myself that the music will get me to where I need to be, so I focus on that.

What is your perception of the digital world that we live in and social media culture?

We are in a very interesting time! Social media can have its cons but I see so many pros! The entire world is in the palm of our hands. We can reach further than ever at any given time. That alone is unbelievable.

No career path or amount of followers negates the fact that you are a human being that has feelings. Tell us about some parts of you beyond being a musician that you take pride in.

I take pride in being a Latino American! Overcoming poverty, adversity, a dysfunctional home and so many odds against me from being homeless and all! I believe my spiritual connection with the man; upstairs and respect for the powers of the universe that got me where I am.

As you are exposed to tons of stimulus, how do you proactively take care of your mental and emotional health when you’re out on the road?

I find it important to speak to people! Writing helps me, daily affirmations, searching for positivity is important for me! Keeping incredible people around not a lot of people but quality people! Lifers, lovers, preserving my energy and being conscious about who I share my energy with.

As a veteran in the game, what are some words of wisdom that you can share with fellow musicians attempting to follow in your footsteps?

I would say to the inspiring class of musicians that on the way up to never stop! Consistency is a big part of this race! Master your craft! Find the 25th hour of the day, 8th day in the week to devote to your art! Get in touch with your spirituality! Stay connected with the creator! For the universe hands out the rewards in life!

Last but certainly not least, any closing messages for your fans?!

Thank you all for supporting me on this journey! I hope I’m inspiring people in my art! Stay blessed and keep it locked with ya boy so much more music to come!

New York City Musician, Les Techno, Releases New Single – “Edge of the World”

Idiosyncratic New York City Musician, Les Techno, is back with another Pop-infused single, “Edge of the World”, that is sure to ignite flights of fancy within creative listeners’ minds. Being bold and creating the ability within to dare to transcend beyond societies rules while creating his own level of cool, Les Techno continues to stay true to himself and “Edge of the World” subliminally speaks of his courage to withstand any and all criticism that comes the way of an artist who knows exactly who they are and isn’t afraid to express themselves along their journey of life. Taking an experimental instrumental approach that instantly leads listeners back into the headspace of some of the greatest music to come out of the 70’s and 80’s, Les Techno stands eye to eye with a new beginning that he has been craving to experience. Synths and an erotica edge that mimics the likes of Nine Inch Nails further speaks to Les Techno’s engagement in the world of music and how deeply touched a human being can feel through listening to Industrial music.

If there’s something about Les Techno that catches your heart and mind beyond the music, it’s his genre of cool that is palpable and rich in artistic prowess and sass. If you’re a fan of fellow musicians such as Rush, Genesis and David Bowie, then check out “Edge of the World” now on Spotify and make sure to keep an eye on upcoming releases from Les Techno on Soundcloud.

New York City Musician, Anne Steele, Releases New EP – ‘Made Out Of Stars’

New York City Musician, Anne Steele, is embodied and abounding with self-love throughout her recent release of her latest EP, ‘Made Out Of Stars’. Here’s our track-by-track thoughts.

Kicking off with the first track, “Obsessed”, Anne’s instrumental style mimics the likes of the modern-day musical flair laced into songs composed by artists such as Purity Ring and Phantogram as Anne’s voice carries out a youthful vibrancy that is compelling to the light  heart. The second track, “Better”, is Anne’s lyrical proclamation to demanding better when it comes to her interpersonal relationships and stands tall in her decision to put herself in the driver seat of her life. “Love Somebody” is the third track that begins with an EDM beat that showcases Anne’s ability to reach into the souls of listeners of all walks of life as lyrics that make you stop in your track pour forward naturally. The fourth track, “I Miss Those Days”, lyrically travels back to days of struggle as Anne feels a place of comfort in the direction that her life is heading. “Love Can Take Us There (2019 Nash Overstreet Remix)” is the fifth track that is an absolute banger that laces in the early 90’s of House and Techno instrumentally as lyrics that are fun and inviting welcome a night of free and fluid love. The sixth track, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”, puts a twist on the Tears for Fears classic in a delightful way with Anne’s Pop vocals that mesh with the psychologically intriguing lyrical subject matter. Closing out with “Love Can Take Us There (Acoustic Version)”, Anne believes in the love that she has found and makes it known from a grounded and mature place.



‘Made Out Of Stars’ travels through a compelling lyrical narrative that dials back into the simple pleasures of life that are often overlooked or taken for granted. If you’re a fan of fellow musicians such as Ingrid Michaelson, Colbie Caillat and Sara Bareilles, then keep an eye on the ride ahead for Anne Steele on Soundcloud.
