Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
I’m Blxck Cxsper, a non-binary hip hop artist from France who lives in Montreal.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Back when I was a child I only spoke French yet my favorite artists were American or German. In my opinion, a great song can be understood by somebody who doesn’t speak its language. That’s where melodies come in and I like to focus on having impactful melodies first, and then let them dictate what the lyrics are.
When it comes to the music genre I make, I like to describe it as ‘50 shades of trap’. Afro trap, Lofi Trap, Trapsoul, I love to explore how different sounds can interact with that new age hip hop vibe.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I feel like it’s going to be a minute before anybody gets to perform live…
But in the meantime, I’m planning on doing live weekly sets on my social media platforms. My goal is to start the day my upcoming single drops but I’m getting an emergency dental surgery that day so it might have to wait until the week after x)
Either way, the live sets will be announced on my social media accounts @blxckcxsper
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
It would depend on the person and the mood they’re in. Because I believe that I have a song for every mood and everybody 😉
But obviously, you should listen to (K)night!
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
I love dvsn and The Weeknd for their melodies and the way they incorporate a kinda sci-fi vibe in their tracks. But I gotta give a shout out to Montreal artists like Backxwash, Hua Li, Shem G, and many others. Our city is way underrated when it comes to its hip hop scene!
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
