Daysun Civil

Interview by @PremiseSNN

Hey Daysun, let everyone know where you are from and what you do?
I am from all over, born in Newark, NJ, raised in Sumter, SC since the age of 4, and now residing in Baltimore, MD! I am a producer/songwriter/mix engineer and an artist. I produce Hip-Hop, R&B, Neo Soul, Gospel, Hip-Hop and I am dabbling in experimental music.
Awesome, sounds like you have a diverse background and wide skill set. When did you start producing?
Wow, I always had a love for music. I first began writing raps around 12 and then I started producing when I was about 14 or 15. I was basically making pause button loop tapes and scratching records on my Father’s stereo. I used the answering machine as a recorder. My Dad would be angry because my little brother and I were scratching up his records. It was a necessity since I didn’t have anyone to make beats for me. This led me to graduate to samplers, the MPC 2000 and 4000, the Yamaha Motif and now Native Instruments Maschine! I also play the drums and keys.
I would have been upset if I was your Dad too! But there are necessary sacrifices to making music, in this case your Father’s records!! Who were some of your musical influences?
My musical influences were Marley Marl, DJ Premier, Large Professor, Barry White, Pete Rock, Herbie Luv Bug, Eric B and Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, KRSONE (BDP), EPMD, Michael Jackson, Prince, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Teddy Riley, Rodney Jerkins, Kirk Franklin, Israel Houghton, Tye Tribbett, The Roots, James Poyser, A Tribe Called Quest, NWA, Ice Cube, DJ Quik, J-Dilla, Marvin Gaye, Quincy Jones, Hall and Oats, Phil Collins, Earth Wind and Fire. Man, there are so many to name. The dynamics of life, sound and all makers of Good music inspires and influences me.
Kind of like me, a very wide range of musical influence, great stuff. But how would you describe YOUR sound?
I would describe my sound as a mood groove. My music will change or put you in a particular mood! Many people have said my music will make you drive faster or that it is that 6:00 in the evening music. My sound is full of Rhodes, synths, heavy drums, a lot of percussion, dope basslines, and intricate drum patterns. I want the listener to go on a ride. I want the listener to feel the mood I am feeling!
The best music does in fact impact emotions… What projects are you currently working on?
I am currently working on an instrumental EP called Daysun Civil Presents: Star Gazing. I have a collaboration project with a producer named Ilson72 out of Atlanta, GA. I have another collaboration project with my homey and a dope Hip-Hop producer who goes by the name Nate OG, from Detroit! With these two projects the producers are on the beats and I am rapping. I am working on an R&B/Neo Soul instrumental EP entitled “Shattered HeArts”! Lastly, I am considering my Hip-Hop Gospel project!
We’ll look out for those. Where can we find you online?
