Welcome to another edition of the Audius Artist Spotlight Series. Today, we're thrilled to introduce Ljazzbeats, a seasoned artist hailing from Chile. With a strong foundation in jazz improvisation and an impressive portfolio of collaborations, Ljazzbeats is not only a staple of the Audius community but also a testament to the power of music to inspire and connect. Join us as we delve into his musical journey, artistic inspirations, and experiences with Audius.
▷ I started making music when I was very young in my school in music workshops that I participated in. After that, I saw that I had talent for it and I professionalized it by studying at the school of arts of the University of Chile obtaining the title of instrumental interpreter in double bass and composition and musical arrangements. Following that I specialized in jazz improvisation and I was part of different jazz groups (standard and fusion) here in my country that allowed me to travel and get to know different countries. Following this, I had a break as a musician for several years but I was always linked to music, especially black music (jazz, soul, hiphop, r&b, reggae, etc.). After a few years, I created again but now alone under my producer alias Ljazz! 🔥
▷ My musical inspirations are varied. My music influences mainly link to jazz such as Charlie Parker to J Dilla and so much more! I feel that my inspiration arrives from listening to a sound in the street or hearing a good jazz vinyl! Music is part of my day-to-day life. You can go in the street and listen to something that remains in your mind and becomes part of a new composition. The inspiration does not necessarily have to just come from your music library.
▷ I discovered Audius because of a person I love very much whom is part of this family! When we met, we began to share music! I shared mu compositions with her. What I like the most about Audius is that I have met excellent musicians and people with whom I can relate to on a daily basis, create good friendships and truly incredible musical projects.
▷ I think I am one of the most active users on the platform and for that I have also won several awards and recognitions (I don't like to talk about them anymore as I give priority to the music I make and not to what I earn). I am always in constant creation since I work with many artists both here at Audius and outside the platform.
▷ Honestly, I am here for a musical theme more than for the Metaverse. I like the world that is generated with these new technologies. I think that changes are always interesting for any type of thing and if these changes strengthen and help art in general (not only music) it will always be positive. I do think it is in development and needs more maturation to become more effective.
▷ My plans are to mainly continue with my life, take care of my family, and continue with all my pending projects (there are several)! I think that in 5 years I will be more stable as a musician and I hope that my name is recognized (not by me but because of my music and my sound)! I would like to leave a small mark on the horizon where many people feel happy listening to me.
