We had a chance to sit down with Zio a Reggaton EDM artist out of Los Angeles, CA recently. This was the interview; make sure to check out the song. It a different flavor but I must say it is really GOOD!!!
So why did you select this particular song as your single?
The song “No Mates” was selected as the first single after having conducted market research with Djs, industry executives, as well as fans. It was also selected due to the positive nature of the song and the feeling it gives you to get up and dance.
How does this single relate to the rest of the EP?
The rest of my EP, “Prende La Musica”, is also high energy with positive vibes. Yet there is a meaning behind each song.
What was the writing process for the song?
One night I was reflecting and thinking about my dreams and the people who were trying to hold me down. The negative people who were trying to destroy my positive attitude; I wanted to write the song “No Mates” to inspire people to never give up and follow their dreams.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
I’m a positive person and I try to spread my happiness and good vibes to other people through my lyrics. I want to inspire my listeners so they believe that everything is possible if they can get past their fears and work hard to accomplish their goals.
What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?
I have a lot of fun performing this song. I usually perform it with professional dancers and choreographed dance moves. Every show I get people up on their feet and dancing along to “No Mates” and my other songs.
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
Yes, when fans listen to “No Mates” they see that I’m a positive artist with a powerful message which is to live life your way and go after your dreams. I love creating music that is fun, empowering, all while making you dance. I want to have fun with my fans and want my fans to be able to escape their problems when listening to my music.
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?
Yes, the video to “No Mates” will be filmed on January 25th in Los Angeles, CA. The treatment behind the video is me fantasizing what I will do when I receive a large amount of money. It will be a fun video with a story line behind it. It will also have a performance section with choreographed dance moves.
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
To produce powerful music with a positive message. I want to be remembered as a Latino artist who created an impactful legacy!
