From now on, every month on HomeCooking Share , a regular user artist will be presented, put forward. In addition to his music, which can be found everywhere on the site, this is an opportunity to get to know each other better! For this new episode, focus on Big Crease
HomeCookingShare: To begin, who are you?
Big Crease: I am Big Crease from Los Angeles, i think of myself as a creative person. I love to draw, paint, tattoo, anything to express myself really. I am a single father to my daughter, so everything im striving for is for her. I’m someone who cares a lot about others well being. The name Big Crease came from me ironing my pants from middle school to the end of high school. It was the way I dressed, not for attention or nothing, just my pops wouldn’t let me leave the house without ironing. My friends noticed and that is what they called me, I then wrote it everywhere.
HCS: How would you define your music?
BC: My music comes in different varieties. I find myself in a position where I’m able to speak about experiences of growing up in rougher neighborhoods. I am also able to speak on the world, because i truly live in it and i personally go through this economic struggle as well. I can also speak on experiences of being a parent, and the beginnings of starting a family. I only speak on things that i truly believe in and what actually affects me. I make Jazz, Blues, Hip Hop, Lo-Fi, Rap, and even Trap music. I like being able to get on any beat.
HCS: What made you decide one day to embark on this musical adventure?
BC: I had started working on music in 2015, just making music for myself I didn’t think I would still be doing this in 2019 with a whole different vibe and flow.
HCS: Your influences?
BC: Growing up I would always hear Oldies but Goodies around my house and neighborhood, I would listen to a bit of everything in middle school from, Alternative Rock, to Tupac. High School days I would listen to SPM, Phora, and Chicano Rap. Now I listen to 03 Greedo, Cuco, Rebelution, and chill music.
HCS: If you had to leave on a desert island with 3 discs: which ones?
BC: Art Laboes Dedicated to you Volume 3, Tupac’s Greatest Hits and Brenton Woods 18 Best
HCS: The perfect track to cook?
BC: A jazzy sample with a mix of trap drums and regular drums, with a deep bass.. I like making songs about reality, something that when you hear a certain thing, you will have a relation to it.
HCS: Small technical point: with what material do you work?
BC: I have a “Blue” microphone, with MacBook using GarageBand.
HCS: Not easy to break into the musical jungle, even with talent ... what do you think about it?
BC: It's a very steep hill headed upwards. A lot of support is what I’ve felt so far. There is always someone who doesn’t like the way you do. I feel if you don’t do it first people are going to say you are jocking someone else’s style/flow. The best thing I believe is to make as much music as you can and drop it as soon as it’s perfect.
