One Man Interview

'With Viberian Experience I want to bring it to the kids that are inspired by that sound, and I want them to challenge themselves. I want them to pick up an instrument or collaborate with some musicians, and have it be that kind of gig. I don’t want it to be, “Yeah I make beats and I spin em!” No no no! It’s a little more than that, you know what I mean? So that’s what I want it to evolve into.' Check the whole interview right here.
