Belgian Artist Imelda Gabs Explores the Boundaries of Pop Music with Her New Self-Produced Single ‘Fallen Angel’

Published

on

Through her first, self-produced single Fallen Angel, Belgian producer, singer, and songwriter Imelda Gabs is adding her own unique touch to the rich and colorful songs that she creates. 

A Daughter of Music 

Imelda was born to parents who were professional musicians. Her exposure to the art started when she was little and has then developed into ways where she can fully express herself with her own music. 

“I started playing the violin at 4, studied classical and jazz piano at the Conservatory of Lausanne, started singing, and later went towards the amazing world of music production where I finally could express myself the way I’ve always wanted,” the artist said. 

Her first live performance was in Brussels at the Palais des Beaux-Arts, during one of her father’s, Doctor Gabs, international tours. 

“I was 14 at the time and really nervous about performing at this huge venue, but it was also one of the key moments that made me decide that I wanted to pursue a professional music career myself. It also was my first and last performance with my father before he passed away, so I keep this memory very precious now and feel extremely thankful that I had the opportunity to experience that before he died,” Imelda said.  

Other than her first big live performance in Brussels at the Palais des Beaux-Arts, Imelda had another huge moment that occurred a few years ago in 2017. 

“I’ve been part of the Montreux Jazz Academy where I had the opportunity to perform one of my songs with famous bass player Marcus Miller. A few months later I got called by the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, to perform on their main stage Auditorium Stravinski and open for Lianna La Havas and The Roots, a moment I’ll never forget!,” she said. 

Fallen Angel

The one achievement that the young Belgian artist is the proudest of today is her first self-produced single, Fallen Angel, which she released last November 27 of this year. 

“I recorded the vocals at Hanaroad Studios in Switzerland, produced and wrote the music entirely from home. [The song was] Later mixed by Paul Norris and mastered by John Davis, both from Metropolis Studios in the United Kingdom,” Imelda said. 

The single also has a music video, directed by the young and talented Dariy Mambetov. 

“This video is also one of my biggest achievements yet. it is always amazing to make an idea come to life both musically and visually, and with Dariy it all came together amazingly and I couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve achieved,” the young artist added. 

With more successes coming her way, Imelda notes the importance of never giving up. 

“There is always going to be a moment where you’re going to doubt yourself and your goals, but it is important to take those negative thoughts and transform them into motivation to get better and work even harder,” she said.

How Mula_Mook Went from the Backlines as a Drummer to Centerstage as a Singer

Published

on

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Mula_Mook grew up in the church but was always hanging around out in the streets at a young age. But aside from being street-savvy, he is also musically-inclined. 

“I was always into music ever since I was two years old. My pops used to tell me stories about how I would go to sleep to him singing to me as a baby. I got my first drum set at two-years-old and that was my first instrument,” he said. 

He later started playing the piano and producing music at 14-years-old. When he turned 16, Mula_Mook began to realize that he had much more to offer such as singing and playing more instruments. 

Shifting to Singing 

At the age of 17, he had his first hip-hop gig at a bar, even though he wasn’t old enough to get it but he got in anyway thanks to his big brother, VinnieKeyz.  

“From there, I’ve been working with a lot of artists in the hip-hop music industry playing drums until last year,” he said. 

2020 is the year Mula_Mook decided that he wanted to sing because he would always ask people if he should be a singer.  And during the pandemic, he wanted to try new things.

“I’ve accomplished so many things in 2020. But in 2021, I’m perfecting my craft and learning to do better and be better. Now I’m working on a lot of new music that coming and I’m releasing new music soon called ‘Sexy’ and it’s for the ladies,” he said. “My major projects and goals is to release good music, build up my fan base. This year I just want to be successful and make sure my family is good. I’m all about delivering good music.” 

Presently, Mula_Mook has gained more than 45,000 listeners on SoundCloud for his song Cupid Love, and 5,500 on YouTube for his song Bad and Dangerous. 

Stepping Out His Comfort Zone 

“The things I’ve learned in 2020, is [to] move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new. And that’s what I did,” Mula_Mook said. 

“If you want to rap, sing or producer or be a musician. Then do it! Prove everyone wrong and become the best version of yourself, brand yourself, and protect yourself from fake love and leeches, even if you have to separate yourself,” he added.

Music has its own way of impacting people’s lives. It can make people feel a variety of emotions, recall memories or feelings, and even inspire them to make a move for themselves or for others. For American hip hop singer and songwriter igobyneq (pronounced eye-go-bi-neek), music is a way for her to change her life. 

At 13-years-old, Neq started making music but she never thought about the money she could make, and how that could change her life. 

“I started rapping and making songs in 2005 after seeing Lil Romeo on 106 and Park,” she said. 

But what started her career in the music industry happened a few years back when she saw what happened with rapper Lil Wayne. Neq then wanted to learn the music business, which ultimately led her to teach others.  

As she grew up, she began to see the way music changed other people’s lives. Now she’s hoping to one day have her life changed too. 

Making Herself Heard 

In October 2020, the American hip-hop artist dropped “Not the Same Girl,” an EP that debuted with over 19,000 streams in 24 hours making this her fastest-growing release to date. igobyneq and her team are currently focused on landing her a lucrative record, or publishing deal that will help bring her sound to the forefront of music.

“This year I want to be seen and heard. Right now, I am focused on dropping singles. I just released a song called ‘Nights in the East’ and I have another record ready to drop called ‘Nobody Like You’ featuring a dope artist named PriyatheMystic. She’s from New York,” she said. 

Building Relationships 

As she goes through life following her dreams, Neq recognizes the importance of building solid relationships with people so that she can find inspiration and support. 

“It’s always good to have friends in high places and friends going places,” she said. 

Some persons who have impacted Neq’s life include her brother Mr. Newtron who is also a rapper. Neq also mentioned that her girlfriend also serves as her photographer, videographer, and so much more.

But despite her personal connections, the artist has learned how to stay professional as she makes her way to the music industry.
