In this edition of the Audius Artist Spotlight Series, we present Justicialistta. Drawing inspiration from the concepts of justice and freedom, Justicialistta's music is a blend of various genres that mirrors his diverse musical influences. As an advocate for the liberating potential of platforms like Audius, he embodies the spirit of our decentralized music community. Let's discover more about his musical inspirations, journey, and his take on the future of music.
▷ My artistic name as you know comes from justice, which we find when freedom is absolute and power is given to the people! I believe that Web3 helps bring justice through a decentralized world where the individual has the ability to manage as he wants (always in a context of RESPECT) without oligarchic obstacles. That's what I call an act of justice. The human being deserves the freedom he has been fighting for since time immemorial. In terms of how I started making music, it's something I've always made. I never dared to release anything until I met Audius and it empowered my style thanks to Alva and Teo, to whom I send a huge S/O!
▷ My musical inspirations vary from reggaeton, trap, cumbia, bachata, rock, and almost every genre. Being a fan or follower of an artist doesn't necessarily mean taking it as inspiration. Apart from some artists that fascinate me (such as Shakira, Rihanna, Michael Jackson, and many other pop legends), my inspirations come mainly from Puerto Rico and the USA, where since the '90s, they have been popularizing the urban genre to the whole world. I have been inspired by Daddy Yankee, Tego Calderon, Don Omar, Arcangel, Anuel, Bad Bunny, and rap legends like Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Drake, Travis Scott, XXXTentacion, 21 Savage, etc. From my country Argentina, I get a lot of references from "Cumbia Villera" and trap, like "El Polaco", "Damas Gratis", "Yerba Brava", "Pibes Chorros," and the one and only rapper Duki, who is a more contemporary artist
▷ I discovered Audius at the beginning of 2022 doing a deep research on the Solana blockchain and Ethereum. I didn't hesitate to write a post on Reddit commenting on what I like the most about the project. There are three key things I like: democracy, financial freedom, and benefits to the artist due to the organic and healthy community that has been forming since the beginning of Audius.
▷ 'Copilot' is my favorite track that I have created! The song describes a sequence of the typical nights that I live and experience in Buenos Aires. I recorded and produced it with Alva and Teo, in a very homemade way. I thank them all for the love and support I have received.🙏🏼 Listen to the track here! 🎶
▷ My summary to this answer is Power to the People. I believe that Web3 and the Metaverse are the next evolutionary steps in the history of the human being and are of key importance. I would say this evolution is 'Serious Business' (no pun intended) and you can check it out here!
▷ I honestly see myself being not only an artist but also a manager/advisor for Mingo qlm - a childhood friend of mine. Thanks to Audius, I was exposed to his art and shared it with many people. From the artistic side, I dream of continuing being part of this wonderful community and platform. The success of the Audius platform is my success too. That's how I see it. I am loyal to Audius, I want to stay here forever, it's where I am happy making art. Check out the song of migo qlm 'in the dark' here 🎶
