Where are you from?
Was born in Washington D.C. and then grew up mostly in Northern Virginia.
Describe your sound:
My sound is very eclectic. One song may sound like dancehall and the next may just be regular deep house or even have more of a pop vibe. Every track has a mixture of very organic classical sounds such as a string ensemble and very inorganic software synth sounds.
Tell us about your latest project:
The “Solstice Part 1” EP is a collection of songs that remind me of Summers I’ve had in the past. A lot of the songs may sound very different but they fit well together. The first few are very carefree and the middle track kind of captures that feeling of being out at the beach or at a day party in the summer and trying to talk to a girl that you’re really feeling. The next track is kind of about that end of the summer period where that fling is kind of coming to an end or way or another and you have mixed feelings about it. I think it’s the one that’s been received the most positively. I think people can really relate to it.
How did you get into music:
I actually used to write raps in high school. I used to stay after school with a few friends and record them in a vacant room.
I switched to production when I met a friend who was a producer in college . I decided to make EDM because I loved how free listening to it made me feel. I wanted to be able to create that feeling myself.
Where do I see my career in the next 5 years:
I see myself constantly touring both nationally and internationally. I hope to be on the billboard hot 100 with most releases and have a few brand partnerships. I really want an H&M campaign actually. The thing I’m most excited for is the day I get to work with my musical idols.
Where can we check out your sounds:
And you can find me on Apple Music or Spotify just by searching WZRD Kelly
What do people need to know: WZRD Kelly is not your average electronic producer. I try not to produce the same style every time. I try to produce feelings and just good music. You’ll always be surprised with what you hear from me
