Travis Hendriiix, formerly known as TKCS, is on a path of reinvention and innovation. As he looks to re-brand himself, Hendriiix has been making deliberate and thought out moves while also releasing some pretty solid music. Even though he only has two songs under his belt, it’s clear he has a vision for his sound and style. We got the chance to ask him some questions about this new look, what to expect in the future, and some of his inspirations (they’re probably not who you think). Read our latest Windy City Sounds interview below and get in tune with Travis Hendriiix.
When I first moved to Denver, checking out the local music scene was one of the things on my to do list. One of the earlier performances I caught was from CRL CRRLL it was immediately clear he had the talent to make a name for himself. His live performances are energetic and his music translates well from wax to his live sets, bringing to life the groovy sounds he creates. With influences from funk, soul, and disco, CRL CRRLL’s music is eclectic and organic, tempting listeners to get up and dance the night away. I got the opportunity to ask CRL CRRLL about his unique sound and how he found it and he came through with some solid answers.
There are plenty of artists in Chicago but not many put in the same amount thought or time as Jofred. Part of the PVTSTCK crew, Jofred has been dialing in his craft for years and is also part of the Grammy nominated group Chinza Fly where he first staked his claim as the world’s best Asian rapper. The talented MC has been working on a solo project, TULPA, for a little bit now and has cultivated a focused and captivating aesthetic to go along with his unique music. After hearing singles such as Yellow Boy and Ring Ring, it was hard not to be excited about Jofred’s future. We got the chance to ask him a few questions and he really gave some great answers that touch on Asian culture, his vision for his music and some of his biggest influences.
