Interview with DomInglish
I go by DomInglish, Artist from St.louis, I've been involved in music since 12 years old rapping using the social media outlets to get it out to the people.. people started listening so I continued to do that then I decided to invest in a home studio & became my own engineer recording myself.. through years I learned how to make cover art and used my tools to make my mixtape covers. I started dropping more and more music on more and more platforms as they became open for me then eventually I began producing my own music in 2016.Also in 2016 me and some friends decided to get an LLC and form a "record label" business called "Mofiree Enterprises " Now I release music through my own label & I now want to expand the music and business into bigger and broader things and connect with more people & fans What drew you to the music industry?
With music I like how you start from nothing and make something, as far as the process of making the music, realizing you can have some much fun and freedom with it and still be yourself all at the same time.
Who are you inspired by?
Being younger my mom would always get me CD’s, They where all lil Wayne hard copies, I would listen to lil Wayne all day and mimic his moves and appearance, He is who inspired me to jump into music
Please explain your creative process?
Once I get in the studio, wherever that may be I’m never picky I put my myself in that mode mentally, Beats start to play and from there the beat takes me to a place & gives me a topic. Once I get a vibe and topic that’s when it gets really fun, I go from there either freestyle or write.
What an average day for you?
Wake up, Work all day then work all night. Smoke all day smoke all night. Sometimes I really forget to eat.”
Is there a hidden meaning in any of your music?
I like to say everything is a hidden meaning because of who I am. I am a hidden meaning. Everything is perception without questions so I feel we all are hidden meanings.
Do you collaborate with others ? What is that process?
Yes, Love collaborating but every process isn’t the same. A lot of artists work different so therefore you may have to adjust to how they do things but that doesn’t mean your changing your sound, just how you go about the recording process or writing process.”
Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans?
I always try to respond to my fans because without them, who am I? I like to do appreciate tapes, I’m on my 2nd one which will be coming very soon just more music and vibes for the ones that appreciate the music for what it is, always tell my fans the word LOVE because that’s what makes the world go around and if more people realized that the world would be a better place. It’s all about love
What is your favorite part about this line of work? Your least favorite? Why?
I love the process of creating, making a beat or recording on a beat. I often make my own cover arts so I love the process of that also. Prolly what I could I say my least favorite is.. would be the beat having to be put together when I’m really really Anxious to record like right that minute or even when I’m having a blockage and can’t think of anything clever.
Have you ever dealt with performance anxiety?
I’ve always been outgoing & was always talkative in class so I can honestly say I’ve never had anxiety performing.
Tell me about your favorite performance venue?
I remember I was at this venue in my hometown St.louis called the ambassador, all my friends where on stage everyone in the crowd knew the words I had just dropped a mixtape called Stack or starve 3 so everything was just perfect timing. Also performing at VibessStl, a known show that takes place every year orchestrated by rellbrodie & others, very beautiful vibe & opportunity to showcase your talents.
What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your foosteps?
Be you, be unpredictable, be fearless, & be grateful.
