I get a Facebook message around 4 a.m. like "Yo, I need to use this beat you posted. I already have a song done, I just need you to hear it first." Being the insomniac that I am, I was already up working on some beats so I said "Send it" and I gave it a listen. When ever I get a song back I tend to be a bit skeptical because you never know who or what it could be. Especially in this day and age where anyone can load anything online.
I was instantly blown away. Not only was it recorded correctly, (for me is the largest hurdle sending beats out to artists) this song was well put together. Float Away tells a story. The tone of his lyrics matched the vibe of my track. I couldn't believe it. So, I got back with him right away. I told him I thought the song was exactly what I was looking for with this particular beat and he had my approval. He said, "Awesome!, because I want to push this as a single! We are going to do a video and put some steam behind it." I'm so used to people recording a song, putting it on soundcloud, then wondering why nothing ever happened. And here this guy is telling me he's filming a video, yeah right! I obviously never said this because I'm not a hater plus you never know.
Three weeks later, sure enough the video is done and Risk drops the single. Not only is the song amazing, the video is nuts. It takes the whole project to the next level adding characters and plot. Risk is Probably the most proactive guy I have ever worked with. He's about getting shit done. Check Out "Float Away"
