You recently released a track titled Broadcast, which we reviewed. What can you tell us about the song?

David NIghts – That was actually the song we worked on the longest. A lot of going back and seeing what kind of improvements needed to be made to make the song sound like what we envisioned.

Kj – I just wanted my voice to hit hard enough to be honest and once we got that we were straight.

Do you plan to release any more singles in the near future?

David NIghts – Yeah, 30 more songs, end of 2022.

Your debut album is coming out soon, called Serpent. What can you tell us about the album and when will it be released?

Kj – The album is centred around a more chaotic theme when it comes to how it sounds. I would say it’s more of a showcase of how versatile JASMINEGOLD can be when it comes to creating music.

David NIghts – I would agree with the showcase statement. Most of the songs are just over a minute and it’s basically just confined within the project to make its own little world.

You’re fairly new on the scene. What is the writing and recording process like for you?

David Nights – If it sounds good it’s good, that’s the only rule.

Kj – I don’t even know, we just sit in a room and make sounds.

Has the pandemic hindered your work much?

Kj – Not at all actually.

Your music belongs firmly within the hip-hop genre. What/who influences you most as an artist? What have you been listening to recently?

David Nights – A lot of the pgLang artists. I think they’re going to pioneer the future of hip-hop and music in general really so I like to keep track.

Kj – My influences comes from my home – it’s what I was raised on
