‘It’s work as usual’ - Grammy-winner Patexx creating new music every day
Still riding high off his recent Grammy certification for his contributions on Shaggy and STING's 44/876 album, recording artiste and songwriter-turned-producer Patexx is ready to make even bigger moves in the music industry.
Patexx told THE WEEKEND STAR that although the music fraternity has been moving at a snail's pace during the lockdown, for him the show must go on.
"Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown, it's work as usual for Patexx. Being blessed with a studio set up at home, the musical journey for me never stops. I'm locked in creating new music every day," he said, pointing out that having recently unlocked new levels in his creativity, his best is yet to come.
"I was always making music, but for the last couple of years I have tapped into other areas of the music that I didn't know I had the potential to do. For example, I started my own label and I am writing and producing for others a lot more. Since I started doing that, the energy and the growth has been different, and the accolades and recognition have certainly taken me to a different level. Not everything has gone to plan where my career is concerned, but I know things can only get better, and there are greater things left to be achieved."
Patexx said that he recently released a new project called Worl Class Riddim, and based on the feedback he has been receiving so far, he believes it will do well.
"The project features artistes such as Face, Vybrid, Donna Lee, Alfray, Lanae, Ronnie Hommer and myself. The energy I'm getting from the project is great so far, so that's the main focus right now. I know it's going to do great things.
"Once you're giving the consumers a great product they are gonna gravitate to it. Pleasing the consumers is always first priority because they are the ones that's gonna buy, download and stream the product," he said.
The artiste has a couple singles that are currently on the market. They include How Yuh Suh Bad, produced by digital 1, and Bu Du Dup Buff, a track produced by a DJ in Europe. "You can expect more quality music from Patexx and the Journey Music team. I have some more heat to drop before the year finish, with some big names, so just look out. The journey music takeover is real. I just want to stay consistent and keep doing what I'm doing," he said.
