El Drastico



Desde Brooklyn, Drastico comparte sus metas para dejar su huella en el mundo musical.  
Coming from Brooklyn Drastico shares his goals on how to make his mark.

Bionica: Drastico. Puerto Rican, from Brooklyn. Tell me a little about yourself, your style in music and what inspires you.
Drastico: When it comes to music, I love anything urban. I like hip-hop and R&B–similar to Drake. What I want to do, is change the music genre with my Puerto Rican-American flow. Quiero hacer lo miasma. What they do in english, I want to do in spanish along the lines of R&B and hip-hop.

Vein-Translation


To me a good song is one that pulls you in not just because of the lyrics but because of the body of music too. You know, the fusion of beats and sounds that makes you itchy to just shake it and work the dance floor or just mellow out with some lyrics. Well Vein is a mastermind in what is called producing. He has worked with artists like Ricky Martin, Pitbull & J Balvin to name a few. Make sure to check him out because he's got something for every groove!

Para mi, una buena canción es aquella que te envuelve por completo, no solo por las palabras si no por la música también. Sabes, esa fusión de ritmos que te hace adueñar de la pista o sencillamente relajarte con un buen tema. Os cuento que Vein es una mente maestra en lo que se llama producción. Él ha trabajado con artistas como Ricky Martin Pitbull & J Balvin entre otros. Denle un vistazo por que él tiene algo para todos los gustos!

Vein: Estoy aquí apoyando a mi amigo Fresh KQ. Soy muy buen amigo de los organizadores de los premios de Latin Mix y siempre los apoyo si estoy en la misma ciudad.
Bionica: Has trabajado con muchos artistas. Cual es el próximo proyecto que estas actualizando?
Vein: Bueno, le hice la producción al ultimo sencillo de Ricky Martin–Mr. Put It Down. Un saludo para él por darme tantas oportunidades. Y ahora mismo, yo estoy trabajando en mi disco. Esperan las colaboraciones mas grandes. Lo mío siempre va ser mucha diversión, y energía para pasarla bien.
Bionica: Que consejo le das a esas personas que desean hacer la transición de productor hace artista?
Vein: Asegura te de amar lo que haces por que vas a escuchar mucho la palabra 'no' antes de que te den por lo menos un 'si'. Pero sabes, hace falta un si mil veces para poder hacer algo así que poco a poco, paso a paso.

Napoles-Fragment Muzik

After meeting with Napoles, I was just taken aback by this man's honorable humility. He is a talented producer and writer that has worked with an array of artists such as that Bronx heartthrob–yes ladies, I'm talking about Prince Royce. His hard work has earned him Grammy nominations and his encouraging spirit shared some very valuable advice for anyone looking to have a career in music.

Cuando conocí a Napoles, quede totalmente impresionada con su humildad. El es un productor talentoso que has trabajado con un sin fin de artistas como el guapo del Bronx–así es chicas, con Prince Royce. Napoles ha recibido nominaciones al Grammy por su gran trabajo y esfuerzo y comparte con nosotros el mejor consejo para aquel que desea tener una carrera musical.

Bionica: Napoles, you are a musical genius. What advice do you have for those musicians that are starting out and really want to stand out? What's something that you would say they have to have?
Napoles: Well the first thing is to be yourself. Many times people are at a place in which they say 'I want to be different' and they end up being like everyone else. Be yourself and leave your ego at the door. In this industry, in this world, you have to be able to let yourself be guided by those that know more than you. And keep going for your dream.

Nayi-Explicame


A ver, el chico es dulce, romántico, alto y canta bonito. Pero les cuento chicas que me parece que Nayi ya tiene pareja pero al igual podemos escuchar sus canciones que enamoran tanto. Tuve el honor de escuchar Explicame en vivo y me quede boquiabierta. Unas palabras con Nayi sobre eso...

Ok so he's sweet, romantic, tall and he could sing. However ladies I do believe this man is already taken, but that's ok because Nayi can still make us swoon with his smooth songs. I had the pleasure of hearing his song Explicame live and I was totally floored. Here's what he had to say about it…

Nayi: I'm from Barquisimento, the city of music (of Venezuela). Nayi is fresh, love, humility, charisma… I have a new song called Explicame. My video which was filmed here in NY is already out. I'm happy to celebrate with Latin Mix and everyone that's here like El Chevo, I just saw El Chevo not too long ago.
Bionica:  Can you sing a little of Explicame?
Nayi: Of course. Can you explain–is it your eyes or your smile? Can you explain if it's your hair that hypnotizes… Just hear me out, don't be afraid if I steal a kiss. It's just that I'm so into you, crazy, crazy over you–Venezuela! You got it baby!
Bionica: What inspired this song? What inspires you to write?
Nayi: I wrote this song 2 years ago in Miami. Well, this happens to everyone. When you get somewhere and then you find that person. The guy or the girl that you like and makes you nervous and you don't know how to approach them. Then all of a sudden your sitting down and that person is next to you, the lights go on and you say to yourself 'Oh my God. What do I do now? Explain this to me…' And the song stemmed from there.
Bionica: Tell me a little bit about your style. You're very trendy, I love it!
Nayi: My style, my style is very chill. I'm here with my friends, in family.
Bionica: Who are you wearing today?
Nayi: I''ve got Nike, H&M, Zara, Diesel…We're getting there little by little.
Bionica: Me encanta. Ay Vamos like J Balvin.
Nayi: Nayi. You got it baby!
