When and how did you start making lofi beats?
Jav Cast started 3 years ago (2019), I always wanted to make a career as a solo artist but I could never decide on what genre to focus on, at first I started with the idea of releasing a full EP in a math-rock style of music, genre that is farely popular in Japan, I actually had the full EP almost done when I stumbled upon the "Playtime" EP by L´indécis and my whole idea just changed completely, after that first listening I knew I wanted to make that jazzy chillhop music I had just heard of for my solo project.
What inspires you the most?
I usually get inspired by other artists music, whenever I feel down or like I have no inspiration to create a new track whatsoever, I just listen to music, I look for something unique that may change my creative mindset in a way that I get knocked out of this writers block mentality.
If you could go back in time, what year would you like to go to and what would you like to be able to tell yourself?
2016, the year I graduated from college, and I would love to tell myself to start creating my own opportunites rather than relying on others to get them for me, career wise, I was very naive and I used to easily trust in more people, that alone cost me a few years of career projection.
What is the story of "Transcend"?
Transcend starts with this idea of combining the lofi sound and vibe with a very ambiental score-like music style, for a while I wanted to create music with some acoustic elements and I saw this track as a perfect opportunity into doing so.
