LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Fun, groovy and full of flavor!
Hi Motion Sickness, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
I am Motion Sickness a beatmaker and music producer originally from the Davao City, Philippines but now based in Hamilton, New Zealand.
I used to play drums and be part of a couple bands with friends back in Davao. We were heavily influenced by NU Metal back then. But when I migrated to NZ over 10 years ago to pursue my career in nursing, I somehow lost my connection with music.
In 2019, I got interested in the music of one particular producer Diplo.
After speaking to a friend about DJing, I started learning and incorporating it with music production. Electronic, pop and dance music has since been my favorite type of music. In 2020, I released my very first track.
Fast forward to 2022, I have collaborated with several independent artists from around the world producing music of different genres from Pop to Dance to Electronic, Hip Hop and Indie Rock. Though my preferred genre is Pop, I don’t limit myself to a particular genre, I just love making music and express how I feel at a particular moment.
Start streaming “Back Before” right here:
Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
Released on October 28, 2022. This particular song “Back Before”, my inspiration was to create something that everyone can chill on the vibe and relate to with its emotionally constructed lyrics. I wanted to have that type of music that has a “relaxing” component to it.
What is your vision for this song?
My goal for this is to have as many ears as possible to hear the track.
I would love it to be part of some big chill house music playlists. But most importantly, it’s telling a message of being there for someone important to you.
What is your favorite part of this body of work?
As for a beatmaker and music producer like me, it is the vibe of the track that is the most important to me.
If singers/vocalists can get their message heard through the lyrics, I want to get to the emotion of people through the melody, the vibe of the track. I want to speak to them through the music itself, whether it’s to make them dance, cry, or be relaxed.
Anything else we should know about it? Future releases?
I have an upcoming track releasing on November 25th. The song is called Where You’ve Gone. Watch out for it, it’s gonna make every part of your body move.
