Beninois-Ghanaian producer and DJ, RVDICAL THE KID, who is releasing his long-awaited sophomore EP Little Planet. We caught up with Rvdical The Kid to talk about his new body of work.

AC: Let’s talk about your new EP Little Planet. What does this body of work mean to you?

RVDICAL THE KID – Little planet means growth, finding the confidence to stand out from the norm by tapping into and building a network of people that understand where you are coming from and where you are headed. 

AC: In the studio, do you have a fear you’d like to conquer?

RVDICAL THE KID – Not really much of a fear but I hate running out of cool ideas during a session. 

AC: What about outside of the studio?

RVDICAL THE KID – The fear of failure I feel is a big one for most people, I included. 

AC: Where does the creation of a song begin for you?

RVDICAL THE KID – Everything starts with the emotional response I get from a progression, a bassline, or a sample. Never from the drums. 

AC: Who do you feel inspired by in the music industry?

RVDICAL THE KID – Travis Scott is such an amazing artist, his chaotic world is very inspiring to me. 

AC: As a music artist, what are you still trying to learn?

RVDICAL THE KID – Consistency is probably something that’s a bit of a challenge for me

AC: How important is social media to you right now?

RVDICAL THE KID – Everyone is on social media and if you are trying to connect directly with your supporters you better get on that haha.

AC: Ahead of a gig, do you have any pre-show rituals?

RVDICAL THE KID – A glass of liquid courage goes a long way in calming those nerves.

AC: What’s the biggest realization you’ve had this past year?

RVDICAL THE KID – You are entirely responsible for your own happiness. Nothing is more important than internal peace, even if the world is on fire you can still find peace. 

AC: What makes you feel nostalgic?

RVDICAL THE KID – Petrichor, sounds from the Korg Triton and studio ghibli anime movies. 

AC: What do you want the world to look like in 10 years?

RVDICAL THE KID – A safe haven for every living being, Twitter is a thing of the past and everyone lives compassionately and empathetically. 

AC: If you had the chance to put something on billboards worldwide next week, what would it be? Or what would it say?

RVDICAL THE KID – My album art, saying “Little planet available now on all streaming platforms” [laughs].
