INSTAGRAM CHANGED THIER LIVES!
31st July 2018
So I was asked last week if I would like to chat with new artists AJ X Deno. I have heard the names and the song ‘London’ which is a vibe plus was aware how young they were. But that was it, I had no idea what they would be like and if they would have much to share with it being so early in their careers.
I headed over to Wise Buddah Studios in central London to catch up with the boys who had been stuck in a studio all afternoon doing interviews. They were in good spirits, a little tired and anxious to finish for the day. Not sure being the last interview of the day is always a good move as it means you get the guest when they are ready to bounce and switch off. The worry is also repetitive questions and holding their attention almost like a preforming monkey at a circus.
Thankfully for me both AJ X Deno were easy to talk to and very welcoming. I noticed how genuine they both are and also very focused. AJ is the quiter one from the two, working out my intentions and not accidently saying anything that could get him into trouble later from his Manager (also happens to be his dad) label or Deno. He is also very smart, takes in everything on a mission to learn and grow.
Deno is the more outspoken confident member of the group, full of banter and energy. I admire their get up and go and how they have created such a buzz on Instagram then Youtube that Chris Brown, Stormzy and Idris Elba came calling.
In our chat you will get to know the boys much more so I don’t want to write a huge essay now. Bare in mind they are only getting started and ‘London’ is probably the first track they have created as a group that they love and has also been incredibly successful with over 10 million views.
Give them a chance to grow, figure out their sound and how they want to represent in the music game. I like both guys and their energy was dope as hell.
AJ X Deno are headlining Omera in London August 6th, grab tix here!
