Seven Questions with Sam Austins

Headlining your first event, how does it feel to know you’ve made it to this point—and where would you like to see the future lead?

To be in this position, it’s humbling and just a testament to hard work—but it’s still just the very beginning.

If you had to describe ‘Sam Austins’ to fans in one sentence, what would you say?

Sam Austins is for the culture.

During the creative process, is their any particular influences throughout life that you look back on to get inspired?

I’ll never forget the feeling I had going to the ‘Yeezus’ tour, or being the first to download a loose ‘Drake’ track before “Take Care” dropped. Moments like G.O.O.D Fridays, and discovering Toro Y Moi’s “Anything In Return” for the first time. Playing the video game “Rock Band”, leading as the vocals. These times are what made me who I am today so it comes out naturally without me forcefully tapping in.

Being a young up & comer on the scene, is there anything that worries you about the road ahead?

I wouldn’t say anything worries me but I’m more-so anxious. I’m ready for whatever this path has to offer me and I’m willing to kick down all the doors that they have in front of me, if necessary.

How was teaming up with Take A Daytrip & ‘FIJI’ water—and do you have a lifetime supply of FIJI now?

Clicking up with Daytrip is amazing. Those are my brothers and I love working with them. As for me and ‘FIJI’, we’re not affiliated but I heard some of their people like the song!

If you could collaborate with any one established artist in the future who would you choose & why?

I gotta choose Cudi. I appreciate his artistry so heavily and he helped get me through my high school depression. He’s the GOAT.

And lastly, what can we expect in 2018 for Sam Austins in terms of new music?

I can’t say much but know that I’m coming back harder than I ever have. I have goodies for all. Haha.

“Detroit Monster” by The Davis Way

Published

on

By

In a highly competitive market like Detroit, you know if you even dip your toe in the pool of music you better be ready to swim. Guided by a slightly different approach than normal, frequent listeners of The Davis Way will immediately grasp he has “the right gear ready” to navigate the water.
His latest offering, “Detroit Monster”, is a glimpse into the world he describes as “cinematic hip hop”. The instrumental project blends the natural elements of that genre, accompanied by operatic themes and haunting vocals. Basically, The Davis Way serves as the maestro on this well-crafted journey.
The album opens with “Foreseen”, representing not only changes in his own music but the lack of attention some of his peers gave to the actual BUSINESS of music. That same business could potentially see any of these tracks garner attention for sync licensing. The mood continues on “Veil Of Tears”, a track inspired directly by a conversation via DM he had with someone about record labels being monsters. In a plot twist, the DM he received could also be perceived as a “monster”.
With additional titles such as the “Bully With The Beats”, the album title track (Detroit Monster), and “Breaking Hearts & Faces”, you can pretty much tell The Davis Way isn’t concerned with the “so-called monster” because he feels “we have the knowledge” to prevail over negativity. “Global Dominance” would be the perfect background music for the rise and “Resurgence” of independent artists not only making great music but empowering themselves through education of the business.
“Detroit Monster” is more than a cinema. It’s a wake-up call for producers to expand the horizon and continue to build their craft.
