A conversation with hip hop artist Diveyede
Today on our Hot Seat we have a talented hip hop artist Diveyede with us. Let’s have a chat with him.
Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Diveyede : My name is Diveyede (pronounced Divide), I’m a California native now living in Seattle since 2012 and I’m one of the newest members of the NW supergroup,Oldominion. I’m a gym rat, low key nerd, a part time gamer, and full time life figure-outer lol and I have dog named “Trooper” who’s half black lab and half Great Dane. Oh, and pro-pineapple on pizza lol.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Diveyede : What Started out as poetry, grew into lyrics when I discovered other branches of hiphop. I’ve always enjoyed and loved all different types of genres of music and when I discovered “Eyedea and Abilities: E&A Day” and “Immortal Technique: Revolutionary Vol. 1” I knew there was a niche for my early developing sound. Eyedea became my idol and source of hiphop inspiration while love, heartbreak and depression were my lyrical inspirations. I knew my content was different but I was okay with it cuz it was real and I created it because it’s what I felt.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent EP series called “The Fallout”?
Diveyede : So “The Fallout: Destroy”, which is actually the first of a 3 part series I have yet to finish lol, was a dive into my still developing flow and genre-breaking sound. It was an abstract, alternative project that tapped into a few parts of my fragile yet fortified mind. I brought a few friends and legends along for the ride, including Oldominion natives, Onry Ozzborn and JFK (Grayskul), Azrael the Silent Angel and Ariel Endure (What Have May) and even production from Living Legends artist, Eligh.
Twist Online : Any particular track of the EP that’s your favorite?
Diveyede : My favorite is actually “The Fallout (Feat. Onry Ozzborn)”, and its about the day after a life event (break up/regretful act/etc) and realizing how imperfect you are.
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Diveyede : I’ve received a mixed response which is good as an artist because it helps in development, but I also understand my sound would be considered an “Acquired Taste”
Twist Online : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
Diveyede : Studio, because there I can be myself more, relax, take my time but on a stage, I always rehearse, make sure I don’t mess up, all the equipment works etc. I’m
