GODERMAG.COM: Tell us what got you started in the music business?
I got started in the business making beat tapes and shopping them to major labels and indie artists in Atlanta and New York. From there i started singing hooks on all of my beats and people said, “hey why don’t you make your own full songs?”… The rest was history.
GODERMAG.COM: What’s in store for us, this 2011?
AKTUAL: This year is the first year i’ve been officially releasing music as an artist, so expect to see more videos and shows from me. I’m doing a lot of production on some big projects with some major artists as well. I can’t say who yet, so just stay tuned!
GODERMAG.COM: What makes you unique from other artist?
AKTUAL: Well, what I think makes me unique from other artists is that I understand sound engineering and production. It makes recording and doing shows a lot easier when you know what sounds right and what doesn’t. I can make sure i have a quality recording from start to finish without second guessing. Knowledge can save a lot of budget money!!!
GODERMAG.COM: What you next single?
AKTUAL: The next single I plan on releasing is a song i recorded a few months ago called “Undercover Girl”. The label hasn’t made it official yet, but people are already catching on to it fast.
