2Fly Ty - Interview: 2Fly Ty

17 Oct 2022 // An interview by Shade

Despite currently residing in Brisbane, 2Fly Ty still identifies as a Kiwi at heart, as he looks to make a name for himself in the music scene of his homeland, Aotearoa. He answered the following questions for Muzic.net.nz about his recent release Dance Floor:

What sparked the idea, when and where?

Dance Floor came about as I was searching for a partner. Meeting woman had become like tunnel vision about the nature of woman. Trying to find “the one” and only meeting with woman that seemed to have no moral compass. Experiences were cheap and meaningless, and left me disillusioned in the search for real love. Dance Floor was an image of what I perceived woman to be at this time. I began hating on woman as I met them. Often through my music journey, woman perceived me to be the stereotypical musician player. Dance Floor is a projection of these experiences.

The stages it went through before becoming reality?

All my music is written on the day in the studio. In a 3 hour period, I take the beat and freestyle lyrics. There is pre thought in the process which is culminated on the day, with 6 -12 months of experiences coming to an emotional head, and resulting in the lyrics that made it the final cut.

Input by others and if you went with it or not?

I always have input from my producer and beat maker from K Rasta Studios in Brisbane. Feedback is crucial. I’m always open to feedback and suggestions and ask how words sound and fit together to make sure my music is on point.

Describe the chats between you and your producer?

After I record a verse or chorus I always come out of the booth and sit down and chat with my producer about where bars fit, what to chop and change and how to make the best sound quality possible. There’s 2 way input always.

What vibe were you going for? Did you succeed?

Dance Floor was meant to be somewhat derogatory and sexy moody. I believe the chorus really captured this vibe.

Challenges that came up along the way, and how you overcame them?

The biggest challenge for me is mind clarity and finding the buzz. Free styling in one studio session, is really dependent on mental clarity on the day. Dance Floor was born in an hour and a half on an emotional day. It all poured out.

The team you worked with and their contribution?

It’s just my producers and me. It’s a fairly personal process mixed with professional relationship I have with K Rasta Studios. I’d say it’s an equal contribution. I highly value their input.

Which lines resonate with you most?

“Obviously, my hobby is music aye

Use it pump it, use it abuse it

Give a fuck and I knew to do this

You’s are clueless

She knows, I’m all about the music biz

And oh fuck I’m about to jizz”

Musical moments in the song that you listen out for - why do you like these moments best?

The chorus. I try to focus on every chorus being catchy.
